My attempt at an FA-25. Based on a JSF proposal from MDC and built out of a Panda F-35 kit.
Concept Art




What I have gotten done so far





You can see in the last pics where I will cut an extension for the fuselage from a spare fuselage Jeff Fontaine sent me. You can also see a preliminary idea of how I will do the Lamda wing :wacko: :thumbsup:

Are the dimensions similar to the F-22 kit?

Don't know what Ron's is but mine's RAN grey-over-white ..... or go completely radical & design your own!

(Sea-blue, sea-green & sand over sky blue with low-vis or medium-vis RAN markings [either VC724 or VF805 in memoriam]? :blink:)

Thanks all y'all :wub: McC I can only compare this Panda kit to the Academy F-22 kit . The 35 is much smaller.
I haven't really thought about a final paint job yet but it will not be grey ;D Probably the same pattern as is on the gray planes nowdays but done in blues and greens. I might change my mind though and go with a jungley marines type camo. Maybe I will finally attempt a digi camo :wacko:

As always, I'm amazed at your ability to hack and splice styrene to your will.
Very bold. Very impressive.   :bow:

Great stuff! This is looking excellent so far, already it looks so much like the concept art.

I can't even suggest a colour scheme, as all those posted within GTX's history would be wonderfully suited.
