How much resin will you end up needing to turn their kit of what's still pretty much a prototype configuration into what the actual thing ends up looking like in service?

Interesting choices for their first two releases. I'd love to see their business plan.

Albeit very limited service. they are standing up a multi service traiing wing at eglin. These are production birds, granted LRIP but production. I don't think there will be that many changes to the shape of the jet. Internally I'm sure there will be changes esp in the software and computer area. They'll selllook at all the YF-16's and F-16A's we bought!!

....If Hawkeye does a USN "C" version. Too bad the Brits bagged the C and went with the B. The QE would look a lot better without the skijump on the bow. I think they will regret getting the B down the road.

Based on the provided illustration, looks like the exhaust is wrong.
