Jolly nice buld!  :smiley:

For some reason, this angle made me think of the AMX immediately. Hmmmm, single-seat KAI T-50 with more fuel in place of the backseater? Either deciacted single-seater canopy (AMX) or same profile (Mitsubishi F-1/T-2 analogue)?

Cheers,

Thanks guys  :D

So far, good feedback from people at the exhibition (a lot of question from visitors not used to "what-if"), will next exhibition this week-end for more feedback. On the french forum Master194.com, good feedback too even if there are not fan of what-if :smiley:

The single seater does exist... at least on the drawing board as a proposal for the KF-X program :P

But your idea to replace the back seat by more fuel (or relocated electronics) sounds good to me (something similar to L-39 to L159 or even Mitsubishi T-2 to F-1  :-* )

I started to work on the F-16B last WE and... put it back in the box  ;D
Instead, I think I will go for something more exotic... a ROCAF AIDC F-CK-1C from FMK

For the moment, I'm looking for some documentation for the cockpit, wheels bays and to confirm the paint chart given in the assembly guide.

Hi guys,

Looks like I forgot to post here my latest build... Sorry about that  :-[

So I finished a few weeks ago an MQ-47B of the JASDF in the 2 tones blue scheme:













Platz/Italeri in 1/72 scale.

Not sure yet about what will be my next build as I'm preparing my moving to a new apartment. So the only objective for this year will be to do a F-104 from Kinetic (challenge build with some friend).

Your MQ-47B looks sharp in that blue scheme! Well done!

That's a very sharp looking MQ-47B and looks most plausible.

Much bigger than I thought they were. :icon_surprised:


Really nice job & the scheme is much nicer than grey-on-grey-on-grey-on-grey-........ :smiley:

Great color scheme. I thought it was 1/48 - that's a good sized plane in 1/72!

Thanks guys. Glad to see you like it  :D

For the size, I was also surprised when I open the box. For comparaison, on the real A/C, MLG are from F-14 and NLG are a modified NLG from the Super Hornet.
