Posting these pictures in a hurry. Will update the specs soon.

Kit was laser cut by V.K. - excellent job done!
Painted by my daughter Indrakshi and I. This is a Dad and Daughter project!

All electronics in place but the wiring is a mess. Will post more pictures later today, once I sort that out.

Cheers!

Thats scary color scheme. I bet you have invested more time painting than building the model.

I had etched lines for detailing on the fuselage and wings, however, they have been mostly masked out by the paint.

Horn connectors from domestic electric plugs. The fastening nut was dremelled out from a plug pin and held in place with Loc Tite. Will try and post a series of pics detailing the process, if required.

Missile racks are the easiest to break, so I reinforced them with CF.

All assembly was carried out before attaching the fuselage. It is easier this way. The entire wing remains flat and it is much easier to adjust and align everything.

Painting continues...............to think of it now, black and white tiger stripes would've also been an interesting contrast. Head Scratching

AMRAAM Missiles have been scratchbuilt and painted. They will be mounted soon to complete the model.

Fevicryl Golden Yellow, Matt Black Enamel (Blackboard paint) and Battleship Grey Enamel. All enamel paints had to be thinned down with turpentine. Nitrocellulose (NC) thinner would have destroyed the Depron.

AUW is 438 grams. Paint shouldn't make a significant difference, I guess. Time will tell.

"steady hands"  Giggle Giggle Giggle

Kindly note that the pictures have been deliberately kept at a low res to avoid ahowing up all the smudges and imperfections!

However, all your congratulations will be gratefully passed on to Mademoiselle Indrakshi. She did a GREAT job, her old man messed up!

Guess who will maiden her? Lt. Col. Sundaramvelar at AVS on or about the 27th.of Sept. If she flies well, I am a good builder. If she doesn't, Sandy is a lousy flier! I hope he doesn't read this. Giggle

Jokes apart, Sandy is an awesome flyer, anyday, anywhere. I've seen him flying myself. The best part is that he is completely self taught. From scratch!  Bow

Awesome is the word man. VC great job done there looks a ferocious Fighter. The Fabulous Paint Job by Indrakshi has made all the difference.  Clap  Clap  Clap

Hope you added a different colour pattern/ Decals for the under belly for sake of orientation.
