Hot on the heels of the Tempest and defying my normal convention of posting a cameo of my next build - as I have three unfinished (and I'm unmotivated to finish them yet), I opted for a quick and simple build instead.
I've had the Attacker in my stash for nearly a year, so I thought what the hell let's build it.
Up first here's what's in the box...
The sprues a clean a crisp, no shorts or burring and a minimal flash.
I assembled the cockpit and jet pipe, I opted not to paint them as on test fitting within the fuselage the tolerances a very tight - so painting before will cause problems..
The ejector seat is dry fitted, as this can be fitted after painting.
Something of note - fit the intakes, before gluing the fuselage halves together, as it makes getting decent fit easier.
Fuselage glued together, it needs only minor filling.
Wings and tail planes assembled - no issues though some minor filling is needed around the cannon.
Tail-planes fitted with no issue. However the wing need so fettling to fit and then to remove the anhedral - nothing major.
Wings corrected a few lumps and bumps added.
Belly auxiliary fuel tank* and arrestor hook fitted. * The tank doesn't have to be fitted, but it covers a lot of joints
Flaps fitted and ready for some Mr Surfacer 1000.
That's all for now
