Wow that's cool! I find that type of thing fascinating...  all the little in and outs about how planes came to be decorated...   :laugh:   Been wondering about this matter in particular for a few months now.  I tried looking up stuff on it and struck out. Thanks!   :mellow: :lol:

A Valkyrie doing mach 3 at low level would be a weapon in itself - Imagine the shockwave damage.

Good job Zac.  :thumbsup:

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks all! Some very kind comments.

The paints are taken from Federal Standard callouts converted on a FS-Humbrol-Tamiya-whatever chart I found online: Tamiya XF-27, XF-65 and XF-49 over X-2, followed by all-over Humbrol Gloss Kote for the decals then Matt Cote to finish.

How I'd love to see and hear one fly. Sadly my wife isn't a fan!
With warm regards from Whanganui, New Zealand

I was not aware of this 1:180 scale kit - wondered about the "flat" nose, but the manufacturer explains a lot. Makes me wonder if a simple 1:72 bubble canopy could be implanted, for an F-12 alternative...?
