    man – Buckeyes are pulling me, yours is looking so good!! Maybe I can manage along with my 109’s (after the Beau and Chilean F-16 are done)…

    Thanks my friends @airbum, @georgeswork and @gkittinger!

    It looked great already, but the touch-ups are improving it even more.
    Great improvements, Spiros @fiveten

    Thanks, my friend @johnb!

    Incredible! Your eye for detail really makes this kit shine! Kalinixta!

    Thanks, my friend @michel-verschuere! Καληνύχτα! Gute Nacht!

    I’ve never thought the Buckeye was attractive but you sure are really bringing me around, Spiros.
    I like that color scheme you chose. Another winner about to emerge from your model hanger.

    Looks good Spiros…The Hellenic markings really make a difference on this bird. The ones that I’ve seen so far have all sported the USN training colors so to see one like this makes a person do a double take.

    Thanks Eric @eb801 and Doug @eydugstr!
    Yes, the “Vietnam” camo looks good on the Buckeye!

    Time to wrap-up the Buckeye!

    Matchbox provided no engine exhausts, so I cut suitable pieces of my sons’ straw selection. I painted them Testors Burned Metal and superglued them into place:

    The cockpit is almost ready, only missing two glass gunsights, as the HAF Buckeyes sported at both cockpit places:

    Meanwhile, a lot of corrective touchups take place here and there, especially at the external faces of the tiptanks.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  • John vd Biggelaar said 3 weeks, 5 days ago:

    Simple but effective solution to create those exhausts, Spiros @fiveten
    So you were able to convince your son that they are used for a good cause.
    Cockpit looks great.

  • Eric Berg said 3 weeks, 5 days ago:

    What a great idea using your son’s straw. I agree. Cockpit looks great and looks good with that “Vietnam era” camo.
    Nice posting over at MM today.

    Thank you my friends @johnb and @eb801.
    Those straws come in many diameters and they are thin enough to look “scale”, too!
    Not to mention that they easilly fall into my usual “El Cheapo” attitude 🙂
    Thanks for taking the time reading my article at MM, Eric!
