I'm still waiting (?!) for my actual kit to arrive, but in the meantime I received all my little goodies and add-ons and I was anxious to get involved and start posting...

I got me some Eduard seats and masks, as well as some resin FOD covers (to cover up my intakes so you can't see the insides which won't be accurate) and some wheels just because it got the order from that resin manufacturer over the minimum for shipping purposes...they're pretty disappointing compared to some other ones I've seen. Oh, and a nice sheet of purdy decals! I can't wait.

They're Eduard Brassin.

@schweinhund yeah! I think I might get started on them. Your cockpit definitely worked out fantastic and got me thinking...I'm pretty nervous though, it's my first time with PE!

A friend of mine is a F-4 nut! And he build 4 of those a year! Plus others.... I think he has the largest collection of built F-4 in all colors and markings.... That I know of!

He always builds those Hasegawa ones! Have no fear! It should be a dream!

Catch you later! And take deep breaths while adding your P.E. To your cockpit! It will be Awesome!

Seats are all done...this was my first adventure with PE and it sure was a fiddly one.

They're far from perfect but I'll get better at it.
