Like the Norwegian bird and the Swiss one is always nice.

A South Vietnamese version or Iranian would also be different.

Small weekend update
Time to get her looking uniform. The AFV RF-5 has some amazing recessed panels and the Monogram F-20 has 1986 greatest raised panels. So this weekend I've been off and on sanding the old panel off and scribing in new ones. I started yesterday on the left side and today I managed to work my way to her underside. Working my way rearward, you can see I'm about half done.



Until next time,
Steven L  :cheers:

Sentenial Chicken did some great F-20 profiles if you are still having trouble picking a scheme.

Which tools are those ?

I've been using a drafting eraser shield as a scribing template. For scribing, I use the tip x-acto but not the sharp side (sharp edge facing away from the model). The pine vise is normal. I use it for the rivets and widening out the new panel line. The serrated job is an x-acto blade I cut notches out(Dremel tool & cut off wheel) of as well as cut off the tip. It's a great tool to make straight lines of odd surfaces. It cuts/scribe pushing and pulling.

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

Excellent engraving work.   :thumbsup:   Is it just me or is that older Monogram plastic just about ideal to work with?

I've found it a little harder to scribe then the newer kits. They do have very good cockpit detail.

Don't stop building guys. Be inspired, try something new and take your builds to the next level.  :thumbsup:
