The decals were badly yellowed.
The weapons layout was not as per instructions, I chose to put the bigger missiles on the wing tips as I saw them in pictures.


Fus decals are upside down : pointy bit always up or forward - you 'll have to build another one :roll: The config of AMRAAM and AIM-9L is correct. It makes sense to load up the wing tip to minimize wing stresses in flight.

Good grief!
I know that, don't ask what went wrong. :lol:
I remember struggling with some silvering issues, I remember making sure they were in the right direction on the wings. ](*,)
