It has been quite a while since we saw the arrival of the much anticipated HAF & IAF block 52+. Just wondering if anyone out there is work on a 1/48 of these birds with the Cutting Edge Modelworks CFT? :shock:

I thought someone over on ARC had a project going with CFTs, but I haven't seen anything lately.

there is, habu2!? A HAF or IAF? I have not been surfing on ARC of late. If it is not too much trouble, I appreciate if you can post the link here, if you happened to come across the thread again.

Thanks in advance, :D

Yes, a guy by the user name of CreepGuy is making an F-16I, using the CE CFT´s and also the spine. Go over there and do a search, I think the thread has long since been buried.

From what I can tell, they are fairly accurate and should line up with the spine properly. I will post picture here and at the ARC hopefully by this weekend. (provided I can figure out how to do that....)

Btw, there's a GAP between the fuselage & CFT. I wonder if mr.WOLF didn't seam it well, or the CFT parts was not even fit to the kit itself.

Well, I have to say that this kit is not mine :oops: , they are pics from ARC and like you say, it seems to be a GAP between the fuselaje and the CFT, in fact in this picture we can see that the fit is not exact, but nothing that some putty can't fix don't you ? :wink:

I dry fitted the CE comformals I have, an yeah they are definately not a drop fit! I hogged out of of them with my dremel in order to get some more flexibility and it seems to do the trick, but you still have to work the hell out of it.

Nice model, I must say that this is one of the best models. I do find it quite interesting though that these pieces show up. That is closer to the real thing than any of the other models .
