Well having won the vote, it's the Hobbyboss F-14A which will hopefully be better than the Hasegawa one i've fought to submission Adding to the mix is an Aires cockpit And FCM decals to make it an aircraft from a proper squadron - VF-111 (and NOT the CAG bird !) Work starts with the cockpit which surprisingly for Aires fit's quite well :-) You do have to take off a lot of the underside molding plug to get the wheel well in place - and remember to glue the wheel well in place before starting fitting A coat of Aircraft grey to start the painting, after some Black primer Then on with the Pit painting - still more work to do but getting there Peter
Just finished, the nice Trumpeter 1/32nd F-8E Crusader in nice CAG markings. Built OOB apart from the Aires Cockpit set, which fits nicely with minimal fuss. Painted with Gunze paints throughout, i've kept it deliberately clean as it's a CAG bird, and it makes a change. As a sense of scale, the printout of carrier deck is A3. The Work in progress thread is available here Peter
Actually started this last weekend, but hadn't really got a lot done to show. After the nice little spitfire, this is HUGE. To go with the kit i've also got the Aires Cockpit (which is lovely), and the SAC metal gear (which is somewhat disappointing really). Most of time last weekend and a lot of today was spent on the intake - lots of ejector pins to fill, then sand to get it all smooth. Ended up with about 3 attempts, and being honest still isn't as smooth as i'd like it. Then on with the pit - sprayed gunze aircraft grey, then detail painting with vallejo model colour, and some oil weathering. Peter
