    Looks like "DUNY PAMP CHECKOUT". Or maybe "PUNY RAMP CHECKOUT". WTF?

    Judging by the rest of it which isn't proper English either, maybe it's Japanese "Engrish"?

    Downright incredible. I've always liked the b-wing, such a unique design. This is just outstanding work.

    I never realised the B-Wing used the wings from a (1/32?) prototype F/A-18 for the secondary wings.

    Yes, 1/32

    Well we're getting close to the end now ! (woot I havent touched my airbrush for alsmot 2 years now ! Last model I painted was also a model built by Bill George, the Shuttle, I must finish it someday :P).

    Today I worked on the secondary weapons.

    I removed the back of the part and replaced it with the original kit parts :





    Then I built the barrels of the cannons with brass and alu :



    In place with the Gepard part :





    I added the last parts (from original donors) for the main gun :





    Still one ford engine exhaust to add though ^^

    I replaced (well not really), I covered the rear wall of the cockpit with original kitparts, I just noticed today I had these parts... I milled quite a bit the resin details of the original casting to get everything fit

    Managed to look through all the ID's from the file on this one Julien, some very cool kit parts used, got a few kits now with bids on, so looking forward to doing something similar buddy, its odd, you and Guy have REALLY got me hooked onto this now.
    Anyhoo, as usual, really stellar work, i love your method of replacing the curved plating without pulled forms, really cool!

    It was RIGHT THERE. Hey, I think I still have the pantone codes if you think it would help?

    Those look really great once you get them finished!

    I think Julien is going to be the first to do justice to the ILM birds, hands down! Hope I can see it in the flesh this Spring, maybe!!

    I agree Jason, there is only maybe Julien and Guy out there capable of a true ILM worthy job, there work always looks like a filming mini, not a toy!

    Have you looked into buying a ready-made booth? I have this one - it's really effective and a B-wing will fit inside. Just buy extra filters as you wil use them quickly with primers:

    Heck no !

    But I dont think I'm going to buy this one lol $355... and $532 shipping ! Is that shipped via Concorde ?!! Seriously I paid less than $100 for bigger and heavier things from the US !!

    Gonna take a look in the Europe to see if there's something cheaper

    That's OK for the particules but what about the fumes ? They said there's no fumes but I have some doubt ?

    Julien, your B is bang on mate, I'm still hunting those last few parts on the guns, tricky stuff but rewarding. Yours is going to look the dogs bollox mate when painted. I'm almost sad to see the B wing club expand like this, Frank has a lot to answer for making these available to actually talented people Like you. I guess the new "First rule of B-Wing club" is if you cant Beat em Build one.........Still have to give Moe a nod for his incredible work on this Kit.

    Ps, open the window and buy some Brut 33, no one will know , or do what I did and lavish her with presents

    Julien, I can spray Testors Dullcote and my wife has no idea. If that's not an endorsement for no fumes, I have no idea what is!

    There has got to be an option for a Frenchman looking to spray things indoors, right? I agree, shipping something like this in from out of your native country is INSANE.
