Oh yeah, that's really coming on! :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Thanks everybody  :thumbsup:

What colour is the overall coat ?

I used Testor Model Master Dark sea blue FS 15042, Model Master Flat white FS 37925 and Testor flat enamel 1171 for the green. The blue in the profile is way lighter to show highlights and shadows.

Thanks again guys,
Steven L  :cheers:

Thanks again guys  :thumbsup:

Here's a small midweek update. She got her leading edges painted chrome, her drop tanks painted and fitted (not glued into place yet) and I put the seat in the cockpit. Next up is weapons and landing gear.



Until later,
