So it got to the point to where all the filler and sanding in the world wasn`t going to sort everything out and therefore I moved on and gave the model it`s first coat of paint. The bonus to this was that the darker paint highlighted a few areas that still need attention while hiding other areas that I can get away with.

Can definitely relate to the MiG-27/B-1 comparisons   :thumbsup:

A quick update on proceedings ......

That looks great!  :)  Always loved that "Flying Armored Fist" squadron marking - kinda says it all, I think.  :)

I can see the MiG 23/27 comparisons but from that angle i'm getting Buccaneer.  Must be the paint job.

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

Ooh!  A swing-wing Buccaneer!  Now, why didn't I think of that?

That actually looks fast just standing there without a canopy, so what it's going to look like once finished I've no idea.

Absolute stunner in progress  :bow:

All done and finished in the guise of a Royal Navy example that was used operationally during the 1982 Falklands Conflict.














Not my best `what if` but a fun little side project.
