Stahlhart's CF-18A Hornet Tiger Meet 1991

Since I have done the Red Tiger, I said to myself why not the CF-18A Hornet Tiger Meet 1991? Different from the usual build process, first I start from the fuel tanks that are all petals for the cones, front and rear. If they are up to my satisfaction, then I'll continue to deal with the nose cone, also petals. If I don't succeed, I'll discontinue and go back to my other projects in soda/beer cans.

Well so far so good, just finished the central fuel/drop tank marked "Tiger Meet 1991". To build this, I have to cut the template up in three parts, petal cones front and rear and the central tubular body. After completing the cones, I glued them up to become a tank unit. Could have done better to hide the seams. Well, it has just passed the satisfactory level, but barely! Maybe the next two and the nose cone would be better. Whether this build will continue or otherwise depends on the appearance of the built petal cones for this kit!!! I have a feeling that I'm beginning to fall in love with petals, petals and petals.

That's it for now and I'm completed relaxed and need no rush like beta building for Aaron. That means it's gonna be a ssssnaillll-speed project.

They look very good those tanks, I think the tanks and noses in petals are the most laborious of some models of Stahlhart, I see them perfect, a greeting

@Butelczynski, yeah, it's the CF-18 but an unusual way to start.

@Vinalssergio155, thanks for your supporting comment. Stahlhart petals are always a challenge. once overcome, the laborious work pays off.

Some updates here. The drop tanks are done and to get rid of the black edge lines, I'll be giving them a layer of grey paint to hide the lines. As regards the nose cone, I cut inside the black lines and will work less painting over the seams.

Well so much for now and just hopes that the cockpit interior for the F-18 will come in time as Chris pleases.
