ARDU EE/CAC Lightning F Mk. 10 Ressurection
« on: June 28, 2017, 08:55:29 PM »
Guys

Been so long since Ive started this one that I lost the original post  :-[ ... so this one I'll bookmark and keep up to date (I hope).

Story up until January this year in pictures as follows:

*** PHOTOBUCKET KILLED MY PHOTOS ***

At which point I was out of action until a fortnight or so ago.

So, in that space I have managed to start the old jet down the PSR road as follows:





Progress will now (still) be slow but hopefully I wont lose track of her.

Ciao

The sharp nose on a Lightning jet is a good piece of aesthetic surgery, thanks!

WOW! I actually gasped when I saw that first colour image, what a transformation!

And using Vostok as a radome? Inspired!

Wow does that look killer, Mushi!

I did a "son of a gun!" when I saw it since I've got plans for a pointy-nose Lightning, swapping out front ends with a Buccaneer.

Yours is already leaps and bounds beyond my concept and I've know doubt the end result will be stunning, like these photos!

Hello all.

OK, after more PSR she is now ready for her first colour coat!



Hopefully I've now got a head of steam up for this one.

If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Looks like you're on the way to making a real prize-winner, Mushi!

Thanks for the update which only makes me anticipate final roll-out more!

Thanks guys!

A little progress on the things hanging under the wings.



Left to right - Undercarriage components, combined Lightning, Mirage F1 and scratchbuilt items; RedTop AAM from the kit, as an inert round; Lightning drop tank modified into a cine-pod (and the white didn't work too well, it'll wear some orange flashes when finished); and Hughes AIM54 Phoenix missile as test round (from an old ZhengDeFU F-14 kit I think).

All except the U/C were top coated in Off White on different bases to give a slightly different hue.

Till next time!
