  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Just hold the applicator on the wing and open it up. Presto! Instant radial streaking!
  4. 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!
  5. Actually no, I started the VF-1 bird months ago and then went on a work trip. I had everything done but the final Dullcote and weathering to finish. So I did that and jumped right into this one. This build took five days.
  6. Mostly. This scheme was applied only for the homecoming. And it was stripped bare, including the palettes.
  7. Tam kit, Fightertown decals, Wolfpack resin seats. Way too late into the build did I realize I forgot the ECM blisters on the wing glove. Doh!
  8. None that stand out. It really was a delight to build!
  9. OOB, DXM Decals. This kit is fantastic! Comes with all the parts to build an A,B or D! Both engines, both seats, both RIO cockpits, four chin pods, and three main wheel hubs. Academy did good here.
  10. OOB, fun build to get back in the swing of things.
  11. Thanks! It’s quite easy to makes it’s just four .020” plastic card, 1-1/2” tall. I glued them to the plate that it came with, then cut some 1/4”x1/8” rods to glue into the corners. Done, son!
  12. OOB with several weathering items. Uh..standby for pics, it’s not working for some reason .
