  1. Bandai! It’s a really nice kit, as all their Star Wars kits are.
  2. This is my new fave 1/72 cat. The possibilities are many out of one box.
  3. Diiiiiiirrrrrrrrtaaaaaaayyyy! Love it!
  4. So pretty! This one of the ones I want to start when I get home.
  5. Love the colors on this! Great combo, well applied. Just needs some dirt!
  6. Reboxed RoG kit, OOB. The decals were actually rather nice. Academy has come a long way.
  7. I was gonna ask if you modified the wing root to lessen the bugles, since the engine is indeed less powerful and needs less air. But I see you only reshaped the exhaust.
  8. Thanks! I’d post a demo, but with work right now, I’m not able to. Once I am, I think I will, when I do my next Tomcat.
  9. Just hold the applicator on the wing and open it up. Presto! Instant radial streaking!
  10. Hi! Well, I’ve worked out a system with Tomcats. I preshade as usual, it I add random, quick sprays of black all over the surfaces. The wings, fuselage, tails, everywhere. Then I basecoat, and then I postshade with a lighter shade of the basecoat. For this one, the color is FS36440 light gull gray. So I add a few drops of FS36495 light gray and I post shade along the panel lines where corrosion control would have sprayed. Then I decal, wash, and add the first Dullcote. I then weather with my Tamiya weathering sets. I pick panels to lighten, or darken. For the wings, I sweep them back, mask off where they touch the fuse, and then rub those areas. For the streaks it’s easy. Just put the swab next to the fuse joint, press down and open up the wings. Presto! Instant curves streaks. then I sea it all with another Dullcote. hope that helps!
