Hi Jens, i don`t received any negative informations from the Mod, so i think a few "In Progress" images will be ok.

@ALL: my english grammar isn`t perfect.....but i hope you will understand me. If not, please let me know .

Also, if you have questions, please ask!

Dear Pig....MANY THANKS again.
I sanded down all the raised panel lines and marked the new panel and rivet lines with a really small pen. After that i rescribed the complete Fuselage along that lines acc. several detail images and drawings from the real Tomcat. I used a rivet template and punch every single rivet with a small tip.

After rescribing and riveting the whole model, i checked the new panel lines with black paint from a waterproof pen. After that, i sanded the whole area again with 1000 grit. Now you can check your new panel lines and fix some “accidents”.

Here you can see the rescribed upper fuselage during the “pen-check”

@: Jens....some images from the wheel well for you

I put "some" wires and hydraulic lines into the main gear wheel well. But i don`t spent too much work into that area, because that Cat will be displayed on a carrier deck diorama. So you will never see that area again.......

Greetings Kai
