Did you cut that hump on the spine from the F-18 also? Looks good. Giving me ideas.

Nope. The spine os the original Tornado.  Only major surgery was swapping the wings.  I added card stock LERX and faired it all in with Milliput.  The build is still on here I think if you look far enough back. It shows “in progress” shots I think.
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Guess i didn't scroll down before commenting on Pellson's build and didn't see Aeroplanedriver's F.5... i'll just adjust my previous comment to : I love the look of both of those beasts! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Great work,  I was kitbashing the Eurofighter Typhoon wings (Revell 1/72) onto the Tonka F.3 Matchbox kit. I got as far as changing the engines over and a bit of etched work in the cockpits. Sort of Delta Tonka prototype. Before packing it away.

I finished the UV resin casting project and mated them to the plastic tank halves. Turned out very well. Received decals for Canadian special edition F-18. At least I have all the stuff I need. Was an avionics hump or conformal fuel tanks ever considered for the land shark? I’ll have to do a little research.
