The VF-X is not finished yet (photos pending...), but it's time to start the thread for the 3rd submission to this GB. This one will be a major kitbashing project, an idea that I have successfully been ignoring for maybe 5 years now (and with most donor parts already stashed away...  :rolleyes:), but the GB is now a good opportunity to tackle it and tweak the background story slightly. It will now surface as  prototype of a stealthy A-10 successor during Demonstration Testing and Evaluations in the 2010s, as a (very different) alternative to the F-35.

Stay tuned.  :wacko:

This one remains delayed at the moment; I have to (re)collect my mojo to tackle it, so I rather choose to build a simple/small interim project within the GB's confines.


Sorry, still nothing new here. Just as I had my courage together to tackle this one, I fell victim to an exciting (but not truly entertaining) combo of food poisoning and allergy shock. Still recovering, but already working on "light fare" model stuff.

Sounds nasty Thomas. Hope you make a full recovery soon.

I wish you good health, and maybe "making models" is the best cure... ;)

Thank you all very much, your moral support is highly appreciated!  :bow:
