Hi Chris,
Despite all the political and realisation views of the real thing, this is a good looking model.
You can never have too many Grey's!!
Cheers,

Keep going you’ll get to 50 shades, it looks good Chris. It was very expensive to do the the different shades, so the newer airframes are generally one colour.

I bet Halfords got the contract! could it be 'Halfords Primer Grey'

They now are advertising in earnest on the TV, so must have got some cash input from the MOD?.

I'm not surprised. I wish I'd done a later airframe then.

Complete. The lighter grey highlighting the panels took an age to paint - don't look too closely. Also there were loads of small decals to go on which also took ages.  It came without a pilot so he came from the spares box. Overall I'm pleased with the finished model. It fitted together pretty nicely - very little filling. This was probably one of my quickest as I only received it last Christmas.

Nicely finished Chris, the light gray looks horrendous to do better you than me, it will look good on the flight line at Marham.

Great finish Chris, well done. i know some reviewers have struggled to get a finish as good as this.

Thanks for the comments chaps. Now the East Riding Air Force has as many F35s as the RAF.

Very nice, you've done a great job.
Did you have any trouble photographing it... Being stealthy and all.  ;D

Hi Chris,
Great looking model.
I don't like the F-35 looks, but you have done a good job on this one, credit to you Sir!
