I think the weapons help "sell it" Makes it look very modern with the latest types on there  :drink:

Nice looking.  Really like these F-20's.  I was planning to do one in Guard/reserves marking.  I hope it turns out this good.

Glad you guys liked it!  I had a lot of fun with these Hasegawa kits and I'm glad they turned out well.

Speaking of weapons... I really wish someone would come out with a 1/72 stencil sheet.  Those missiles are a PITA to mask and paint in that scale!  I liked the Hasegawa ALQ-184 too, and I can't wait for Hasegawa to come out with the 1/72 3 band -184 soon, since I have a project waiting for that.
