Hi all,

As my contribution to a mini-GB over on Jet Age organised by Tom Sime (thanks Tom), here's where I'm currently at with Italeri's F-18B built as a CF-18 two seater.

Box top

Built OOB, fit was fine except for the "step" in the fuselage which my limited skills couldn't hide...and the camera loves to highlight! Crew from spares box.

Brush painted with Revell aqua colour acrylics.

All Futured and left side decals on..

Right side decals tomorrow night, then weathering and final bits!

Thanks for looking and enjoy your modelling.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
