The Buckeye is now all decaled. It's on it's legs, now all I have to do is matt it down, make a new pitot and finally add the arrestor hook. he tip tank decals were a worry. A few applications of set/sol sorted them in the end. It's only taken me a year to get this far.

Things slowed down a bit after finishing the Buckeye, I was having airbrush hassles now hopefully resolved. Currently trying not to ruin an Airfix Hunter and also doing little bits on an Airfix SHAR 2.

Cheers Shaun, I went mad and splurged out £1.60 for the resin nose. Had to take a pill to calm myself afterwards. If you read the build in this months Airfix Model World mag you would need to throw about £30 in aftermarket goodies to make it accurate.
I think I've spent enough thanks all the same. The nose really did need swapping though, I think I'll use the gun pods from one of my GR1s rather than replace with resin.

Once you chuck all that cash at it, you still have to do a load of hacking and remodelling and in my case, would run the real risk of a total blast up and binning... It was an interesting article to read, as they utilised a number of resin parts which due to the fine-ness and brittle-ness of resin just broke on them, and had to resort to good old plastic card, wire and modelling moulding clay....

For many and me included, a simple nose job is enough.

It's beyond my skill and comfort zone to hack a kit to death.The nose was a straight drop / push in so no fear there.
Also I'm not a fan of throwing most of the kit away and then spending Liberia's national debt on every bit of resin and etch going. A lot of magazine builds are like that now rather than a review of how the kit builds. I did see the actual kit, it was on the Brampton stand it Hudds last weekend. To be honest other than the nose and cockpit I don't think I could have told the difference between stock and A.M parts.

Great finish on the Buckeye Shane. I always liked the bulkiness of the Buckeye, and the paint scheme is one of my favorites.

I've got the same nose too for mine. I was just planning on sanding the kit part but I was also buying a few sets of replacement nozzles at so P&P was negated.
