  16. You might want to sand off that raised detail on the centreline tank depending on time frame of the airframe you are making, unlike the underwing Fletchers the centreline tanks didn't have an external stiffener/joint. (edit: turns out the early ones, 1960's pre F-4J, did have that feature, I stand corrected) The pylons for the Sargent Fletchers were integral to the tanks, the outer wing pylons for weapons (i.e. without Fletcher tanks) were not the same as Gene said. The early McDD manufactured drop tanks had a joint either side of the tank and the pylons were separate items however the Fletcher items only had one seam on the lower left side IIRC. Duncan B
  17. According to the entry on Scalemates for this kit it is based on the 1987 hasegawa kit item number K14. Duncan B

  24. Nice work on the nose modification Mike. I have so far resisted the urge to open up a box (more down to lack of mojo than anything else). Duncan B
