I've been working on Hasegawa's Tracker for a while now so figured it was best to upload a few photos as a work in progress.
Lots of firsts for me in this build. First using lots of etched detail updated, first try at rigging, and first attempt at making some wing lights. I'll update the article below as I progress.
Ok, time to get this one finished, it's been sitting on my bench at 90% for too long. This time it's Italeri's F-104G, another great kit.
I really enjoyed building this model! There has got to be something said about a quality kit to start with and this one was excellent in all respects.
The entire model was built OOTB with the exception of the seatbelts which I scratch built from folded then painted tin foil and #5 fuse wire. Again, a lot of these things I have not tried before and on reflection I think I would try cutt

Time to get something small finished while the big projects get shelved. So I picked up Academy's 72nd scale Tempest for a quick build to be thrown together over a few days.
This is Kitechs 72nd scale offering which looks to be quite similar to a Hobby Craft kit which was released some time ago.
This is my first Kitech kit and I was quite surprised at the quality which was offered considering how cheap the kit was. The sprues are free from flash and the is some nicely done surface detailing which comes out very nicely.
