Benny,

You might want to add a few more photos here as well. Also is the F-100 from the Lakenheath GB or is this something you have recently built?

Cheers Gents.

If I put any more pics on you would see how :grr: it realy is :lol:

I am a bit angry with my self about it because I realy planned to take my time and put some real effort in to this. I just have no patience :roll:
I think with the AWACS being worth a few quid it might encourage me to do a bit better.

It is my Lakenheath F-100, it is filling in the space which should be filled with the Hasegawa ground equipment I bought for this. I am saving them now for when I build this again in the future.

Ben

It looks ok to me... I wouldn't beat yourself up, we all have to learn and improve in time so post some pictures up if you want to.

I do commend you for doing something different from the norm.. this is something I do not like doing, but thts just me!

Don`t look too bad to me Ben. :thumb: It`s a nice `whif` idea and the camo suits the aircraft in a strange kind of way.

Over time you may carry out the odd repair or touch up and post a few more pics. ;)

Yeah, we want more pictures! It looks pretty good - I'm sure most of the things that annoy you about the kit won't be picked up by other people :)
