Thanks everybody your wonderful support :thumbsup:  She is getting close. The past two weeks I've been washing her panel lines and it coming along nicely. Should have a few pic up sometime this weekend.


Thanks again,
Steven  :cheers:

I'm sorry but I just don't see her that way. And if you think the F5 is curvy then we definitely don't share the same taste in women  ;D ;D

I just think the F5 family are rather bland (I don't actually dislike it, in fact I have no feelings for it either way) doesn't stop my admiration for the model though  :thumbsup:

Photo update as promised :thumbsup:

Panel lines washed with watercolors. A mix of burnt umber and black(60/40). Still got to wash her wheel well.









Thanks for looking,

Thanks guys :thumbsup:

Here's a tiny update.  I did something different with her hardpoints. I washed the panel line in my normal mix of burnt umber/black watercolors. But I also wash the little cicrles/bolts in silver. When the light hits it a certain way, the silver wash pops.




Thanks for dropping by!

But, forgive me for asking.  Wouldn't have been easier to just add the nose from the RF-5 to the F-20 instead of the tail to the RF?

That's what I did for my 1/72 one a few years ago
