    You are more than welcome.
    The good thing about the new cockpit interior kit, is that the landing gear has been upgraded a bit as well. You will be able to remove it or replace it at will without worrying about it breaking.

    It too is my favorite one to build as well. I plan on building more as well.

    I am looking forward to seeing your builds as well.

    Well, she's finished - my first completed paper craft project! Here are my final pics...

    Not perfect, by any stretch: the forward cannons are askew, my sponsons aren't smooth down their length, the wings are a bit cockeyed, and so on. But I'm glad to have finished, and thoroughly enjoyed the project!

    Well, I have to say that your first build of this plane looks far better than my first attempt.
    You did a VERY GOOD JOB!

    Indeed! This is a very nice build. Do not worry about any imperfections; it is "Buck" and every imperfection is - battle damage! ;) I'm sure your next build will be much better since you know how the parts are shaped and assembled. Keep it on, CL! :)

    @CrimsonLine If you decide to build another Thunder Fighter, you (as well as anyone else reading this thread) are more than welcome to use any and all threads that I have posted as guides to help you with your build (that includes adding extra detail). If you have any questions or need help you can contact me and I will do what I can to help you.

    For a first card model, it's waaaaaay better than my first! It looks great, and you did a great job! For a first build, you chose a model that is a bit complex, and requires great care in assembly, so now you can really build anything - You should try the David Jones Starfighter, it makes a great companion piece, and has a few different lines and colors on it. Also, the engine bells are a lot easier to build, and overall, has a nice prototype look to it. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

    I agree with the others. That is a very nice model and great for a first attempt. I started off with a cubee but you jumped in with both feet! Your future builds will seem like a whole new experience.:)
