Hi guys and gals. Thought I'd post some photos of the Skyhwak build.The FoxOne Decals went on very well. I had problems though around the leading edge of the engine intakes and the red spiral stripe on the fuel probe. Those areas were masked with Tamiya Tape and ModelMaster Insignia Red was applied. I did use the "DANGER" part of the decal for the aft area of the intake. I applied thin coats of ModelMaster Dark Gull Gray to the bottom of the model for some weathering. I'm going to give it another coat of Dullcoat to even things out. We're moving in about a week, so we'll see when this bird gets completed. Thanks for looking, Wingman out.

It looks excellent wingman. I really like the fueling probe! Very cool stuff.

Thanks Allen. I just tore down my workbench so I can move it to the new house. I just attached the landing gear, gunsight, flaps and wingtip lights. I hope to be up and building in about a week, we'll see, thanks for your kind comments,thanks for looking, Wingman out.

Thanks David. I'm looking forward to the move and to getting this bird done. It seems to take me awhile on these. It will be cool to finish it up on the new work bench, thanks for the kind words, Wingman out.
