F18 Build - Part 9

So I've finally finished covering the F18. Man that's a job I really hate, worse than working with fibreglass and epoxy, but the result in the end really is worth the trouble. And this is what it looks like. The Blue Angels will be proud...

Also started cutting the bottom wing decals and finished the one half. I am not 100% happy with the proportions but it will have to do as there is not enough time to nitpick now...

This will probably be the last post before the weekend as the rest is elementary stuff. fitting the control push rods, balancing etc.

See ya all at the ETB PSS Fest.

Hi Izak,

Die F18 lyk pragtig en met daardie lang neus gaan hy maklik balanseer.
Ek hoop die wind waai n'hond uit n'bos uit dat ons leker kan vlieg.
Sien jou daar.

Hi Izak,
Nice work ...the decals look great to me , especially if you made them yourself.
What does it weigh and what type of foil , it looks fast.

I made the big decals myself and I collected the smaller ones from a friend who does it for us this morning.

I will post the specs in another post on the blog.
