I don't think I've seen "stinky yella" in the U.K. ?

Sale is allowed only in Australia.
It's made from fermented Vegemite, munched by dropbears. Tamiya-Oz has a special production line downunder.  ;D

PSR is done but progress has slowed to a crawl while I come up with a colour scheme.
I have devised an undercarriage plan though.

Undercarriage attached and PSRed.
I have used a pair of what I think are Academy P-51 flaps as main undercarriage struts and a a cut down Tamiya/Italeri MiG 29 nose leg as the ummm, nose leg.
Wheels are all Tamiya/Italeri MiG 29.

As far as the paint scheme goes it's going to be PDRV Republican Police two tone grey with blue & orange cheat lines.

Thanks Dave.
Here she is up on her legs.

Without her wings she looks like a cross between a tadpole (in the two legged stage) and a shark.

That looks a total HOOT Fred!  :thumbsup:

Can't wait to see her in the full colour scheme.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

It's weird.

Certainly is.

It's now got two shades of grey on it.  Top side will need another coat, not sure about the underside.
I'm at the "I wonder what's going on under the masking?" stage.
Also the check the decal stash stage to see if I have any left over from the FW 189 Tilt Fan.

No updates for a while.  Today I satin cleared and unmasked the Javelina.  It appears I got some clear on the inside of the windscreens.  It's not too visible though.  Not as bad as it would have been on a fighter's bubble canopy.
It's basic airframe is finished but I need to decide if I am going to hang anything off it

A red light camera pod, a FLIR pod & a couple of anti-hoon ATGM's. ;D
