    After finished my last diorama on 1/144 , here a link

    I´ll start a new little project, it will be about a jet that many says thats is ugly, but I like too much :D

    Kit:

    On the box are two kits, this time I´ll just one, the other I´ll leave to another project...


    The sprues:

    Starded working on weapons, with 12 Rockeye, included on kit, and 6 Snakeye (that I´ll use from a set ARII), its impressive to know that this little jet can load the same than a B-17 Flying Fortress...

    I used a 5/0 Kolynski brush to make the details.

    Some more details will be added when I fix the bombs on pilones..

    Nice choice Lucas. I have a few of these Dragon A6 kits myself. Last night I finished up my Dragon "Jolly Rogers" memorial flight build and was contemplating which to start next.

    I have a few questions for you. Where did you get your replacement seats from? I built my Tomcat with the blobs in place and I can't bring myself to do that again.

    Another issue I've come across with the Dragon kits is that it points out color codes to use on the model but they aren't listed in the color chart. How can I figure out the correct colors. A search on the web got me no where.

    I look forward to seeing more progress
