These are my Mk 2 CAF Arrow, and my RAF Avro Archer F3. Both have been dragged out of the stagnated builds box, and started again. The mark two Arrow is nearly finished, just some decals, clear coat and missiles sticking on, and it's done.

It's far from perfect, and the decals I wanted to use for the intakes disintegrated, and were the only spare F-14  ones I had. Also, it got knocked of the shelf by the dog, and the canopy got cracked, I don't know what it is off to be honest, and don't have another, so it's staying.

That's a MEAN looking nose it's got there!

Looking good Chris.  :thumbsup:

Cheers,
It has a lot of avionics in there and a very powerful radar that looks up. The roundels look spot on wouldn't you say Kit :thumbsup:

They turned out better than I thought they would, yes.

Did you use the white backgrounds too or just the lo-viz parts?

I just used the low viz parts Kit, they blend in pretty well like that.

Yep, it used to be a kitech mig-25, and not a good one either, so it's reet for the job. The other one is having a lot of psr to sort out what will be it's third canopy.
