Impressive creative jets in design and finish.  Like them all. :)

Finished and on deck:



I gave it a Tornado style refueling probe, but as I was painting it I thought I should have gone with a Hornet style probe, bit too late to change anything though.

Beautiful!!  With your permission, I'd like to adapt this scheme for a 1/72 navalized F-15 model.

I'd probably have(will, on mine) put the refueling probe on the other side where I could plumb it in to the existing plumbing for the boom receptacle, but that's just me.

Sure, here's the recipe if you need it: Tamiya paints XF-8 Flat Blue, XF-23 Light Blue, XF-66 Light Grey and white.

I put the probe on the right for personal reasons, as I am right side dominant, if(HUGE if) I were in the cockpit I would want the probe on the right side.
