    small update

    Here is a small update on my project. I just finished one of the engine exhausts.
    I have added more physical detail where I could. As you can see, I even layered the detail of the base of the exhaust as well (which took a lot of work and patients wall1).

    More updates soon.

    ENJOY!!!

    Thank you.
    If you have not already done so, you should do the same to yours.

    My friend, I am not offended in the least bit.
    I post these build threads so people (like you) can not only see what skills I have and what I can come up with, but also to give others ideas to make their models better.
    So when I see that someone is using a technique that I used on one of my models, it makes me feel good about myself and that I am doing something right. Not only that, but if someone takes my tip or technique and is able to improve it and make it better and is willing to share what he/she has done, I feel even better, because I have inspired someone else to do that much better.
    So by all means, use what ever tips and/or techniques that I have used and make your models better, under the condition that you share your work with all of us here.

    I am looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Wow, those engines really "pop out" with the extra detailing. I love to see this kind of detailing. I wish more would follow. I think you will influence many. Excellent!! :)

    More photos

    Ladies and gentlemen,

    Here is an update on my STF.
    As you can see, I have fixed the canopy and added the engine exhausts.

    Next will be the main & lower wings and LG.

    As menioned earlier, Black becomes the TF, Next on the agenda that would be nice, are a sliding canopy, a tilt back canopy or a side tilt version. Kudos on a well done build.

    You put a sliding canopy, and I may go on a diet, so I can try and get in! :)
