    Hi guys, been really busy of late and not to mention a bit under the weather.


    I drilled some holes and used some clear Sprue as camera lenses to add a little more interest.

    managed to get some colour on today aswell (although the Tamiya Sea Blue went down a bit grainy and took some rubbing down) so hopefully the next pictures will show some decals down.


    all comments welcome, I hope this post works and you can see my pictures ok.

    Cheers mate, already over tightened one and snapped it. Paid out silly money for a iwata replacement I'm sure it was about 20 quid! For such a tiny piece. Was thinking about trying the third party kind of evil bay, you get about 5 for the same price. What are your thoughts? Bit of a gamble isn't it? Be interesting to see if anyone has had any experience with them?

    All looking very nice. This Panther has got me interested in early jets again.
