I like the look of this type. Those conformal fuel tanks make it look almost muscular. Good paint job, too.

Thanks Habu, Kryptid! What did I use?........It's quite a long list, I hope I'll remember everything.....
The kit is Tamiya 1/48 Thunderbirds. The CFTs are from CMK and with a little work they fit quite nicely the Tamiya kit and some self-adhesive strips to recreate the cft seal.
-Aires nozzles- they're awesome!!!!!+scale mororsport 1/48 carbon fiber decal
-Shull24 Sniper pod+ added some wire
-Wolfpack Block 52 conversion set- didn't use the seamless intake 'cause it's too small(??????????) but the one from the kit came out OK, also the drag chute is smaller so some putty and sanding is required
-Eduard- zoom cockpit, ladder and undercarriage+scratch building details in the wheelbays since the eduard set provides a part of the wiring
-Decals The stencils are dry transfers from Hobbydecal, the walkways are painted with gunship gray since the Twobobs ones are black, also the in-flight refueling marking is painted. I used from the Twobobs sheet the insignias and the numbers mixed, of course.
Other than that, the paint is Tamiya Light ghost grey and Neutral grey. The darker shade(effect) that is visible between the light and dark grey I used a regular pencil and rubbed it along the camo pattern between the grays.
And I think that's it! Comments are welcome!
Cheers!

That's what I thought it would take. I'm sure the kit didn't give you much trouble, it's the best! Again, good job all around.

Yum, yum, yum falconetti!!!! VERY cool looking Viper I must say. Great to see some refs put to good use - right intake/exhaust, Sniper pod and CFTs.

Greetings,

Henrik.

The nozzle has good detail work as well; looks like it has a few cycles on it...

Happy new year, everybody!
Henrik, thanks! And, thanks to all the people that post pictures and complete walkarounds of all the cool aircraft that we build, 'cause otherwise would be kinda difficult to make an accurate model.
TEG, I'm sorry I don't have a better camera to show the smaller details, like the ones in the wheel bays, cockpit and the exhaust nozzle, which looks better that in the picture.
Cheers.

A very nice model.This is a nicely designed and would seem a very unique. This rc jet is fun and nice to see. I really like it. These are the rarer ones. I do find it quite interesting though that these models show up.
