Default F-80C 1/32 scale

Here's the Czech Model Kit in progress. I am using the AMS cockpit set as well as the exhaust pipe. Harold has done a great job as far as I can tell. I will be doing my own nose gear and speed break bays as well as adding detail to the main gear bays.


The intakes have a fit problem and fit better if instaled as two seperate items.



The nose gear bay is very basic in the kit so I want to try and improve it. did use part of the kit bay.



More later

Heres some more in progress photos
I will be using the cockpit set from AMS.




The tub needs to be trimed at the bottom to give the nose gear room to go in. Here are some photos where I am fitting it with the kit nose gear bay.

Here's photos of progress in the main gear bays and speed break area. The kit speed break wells are to shallow and don't have any detail to speak of.







This model needs some nose weight about 2oz. Heres what I am using

This will bring you up to where I am at now. I am trying to find out what colors of paint to use in the gear and speed break bays as well as the cockpit colors to repersent a early 50s bird. I am thanking it would be along the lines of the F-86 Saber. If anyone can help I would sure appreciate it.

Sounds like a lot of work but it should make a great looking model. Hope you will post in progress photos.

Update



These photos show the white spacers I used to keep the rear of the cockpit centered.


These last to photos show the flusage buttoned up and some filling dun. Will need to replace some panel lines.
