  1. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
  2. Not the easiest kit I've ever stuck together. It's a little over engineered in places. Finished in Vallejo acrylics and with the kit decals which were very good. z20200913_225152 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200913_225141 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200913_225131 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200913_225124 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  3. My latest in a line of aerobatic team builds. This Hasegawa's Skyhawk and finished straight out of the box. Sprayed in Vallejo Deep Sky and also has my first attempt with Pledge floor polish as a gloss coat. It seems to work very well. z20200913_225247 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200913_225222 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200913_225213 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200913_225206 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  4. I thought a family portrait might be called for here. Built over the last few years. 20200703_131504_edit by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  5. Thank folks. A gratuitous photo of the F-4J alongside one I built a year or two ago. 20200703_165116edit by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  6. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. On with the search for Fonderie Tiger...
  7. Carrying on the Blue Angels theme, this is Hasegawa's F-4J. Not much to be said, pretty decent kit and finished with Vallejo Deep Sky and CAM PRO decals. z20200630_155352 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200630_155344 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200630_155333 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200630_155324 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20200630_155320 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  8. This one has been lurking for a long time and I think it's a very old Lindberg kit. It goes together quite well but not much in the way of detail. The decals were surprisingly good but as usual I struggled with the gloss finish. I hope one day someone will produce a decent kit of the Tiger.

  9. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. Much appreciated.
  10. Next up, my attempt at Trumpeter's F-100D. It's a fairly simple kit that didn't take long to put together. The metal finished I struggled with but ended up with Vallejo Steel and Aluminium. The decals fit well but crack and tear easily and it took three sessions to put the decals on. I used the kit's alternative markings to provide some repair patches. Anyway, here it is. zz20200614_192226 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200614_192202 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200614_192152 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200614_192145 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200614_192339 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  11. Thanks for the comments folks - much appreciated.
  12. Another long-term stash lurker and a surprisingly easy kit to make. No cockpit, no decals, all parts painted before assembly and then stick together. Rigged with elastic thread. Such an important aircraft is poorly served by the modelling world. Only this kit and the expensive Hasegawa 1/16 scale kit seem to be around. Surely a modern 1/32 or 1/24 scale kit is long overdue? 20200606_002255 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200606_002251 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200606_002244 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200606_002236 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200606_002220 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200606_002212 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  13. Thanks for the comments folks, Much appreciated. Some F-14s look really badly weathered but the CAG aircraft were generaly pretty clean.
  14. My latest effort. Not a particularly easy build with one two "challenging" areas. The landing gear bays being one of them. Finished in Vallejo light and dark ghost gray with decals from Mil-Spec depicting the CAG aircraft from VF-11 USS Carl Vinson. zz20200530_130913 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200530_130902 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200530_130921 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200530_130932 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200530_130947 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr zz20200530_130956 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
