Fantastic work on your builds, guys!
Congrats to everybody who reached the finish line

As for me I couldn't do it in time despite the extension due to
some kit issues and research activities.
But I will move on and show serious progresses in this thread anyway.

Cheers, Thomas

Next hobby show i'm looking for a skyray, what a beauty

My entre in this campaign with the best jet noise ever a F-104G



Easy build and i'm sure i made a picture of the cockpit,.. but "lost it" anyway
Grey rattle can primer used, and spray the typical AMI camo pattern however i think now the green should have been more olive green.





Thank you for the extension, all decals are now on and voila the end result







Beautiful creations in this campaign, thanks

Hi,
I see some works go to the finished stage.

My kit is done. It's hard to apply the decals that printed about twenty years ago.





Regards,

At John's request, this campaign has been extended two weeks until 18 February (I like to give folks one last weekend). Have at it, everyone!

Iíll need the extension since Iíve herniated a disk and cannot finish my F100 Until the pain goes down.

There are a lot of really beautiful airplanes on here, Iíve loved watching each of them go together.

Quoted Text

Great progresses and work, guys!

Bob, thank you! But all that fiddling work shortens my time frame a lot.

So I'm sure I can't reach the finish line without a (at least) 2-week extension for this campaign.
Anyone else in trouble?

Thomas



i need a little time extension too , i've only started the SEA Camo tonight

John, been there done that. Your Su-9 is looking good.

Thomas, nice job on the Mirage wheel wells.

Franck, Your F100 is coming along fine. I stayed away from the F100 because of the after burner area until I found some decals for an SEA F100 with the afterburner area painted also, and they arrived today. So I now am able to finish my F100.

Been awhile...

My Su-9 fell to the ground, still fixing it.



Took some time masking the canopy



Hope this week to add all the pylons and antennas and start painting it...

So nice builds in here, guys! As well as the new entries - glad to see this thread alive.

Radek, beautiful looking F-102, great! Congrats for finishing

Franck, good start! Pit looks very fine.

Didn't posted progresses in here for a while since I use the separate build log for my Mirage for more details.
So here's just a quick view of the current status. Stil lot of things to do, but for now the fiddling-styrene-work is mainly over.
