  1. There is no cant to the MLG at all. Steve
  2. Absolutely fantastic guy to do a deal with. Mike came through on a kit that I have been after for quite a while. Mike, Thank you my friend. Thank you very much. Steve
  3. Mike is a great guy to do business with. Buy, sell, or trade. You will not be dissapointed.
  4. I absolutely agree. Chuck is awesome!!!!!!!!
  5. No E-bay. I got it locally from a contact. They are not available for the general public until sometime next week.
  6. Sorry. Those sprue shots are seen elsewhere. Maybe I'll post some here.
  7. I picked this up today. It looks to be a great kit. I did not post any sprue pictures because they are already posted by someone else in another thread. There are a ton of weapons in this thing. Lily is standing on the box for authenticity.
  8. The last of the kits that I owe have gone in the mail. I will offer no excuse or ask you to "trust me". I am just publicly letting you all know that the ARE on the way. Feel free to slam me in bad trader, God knows I deserve it. Steve
  9. Has anyone else had a tough time getting the two halves that surround the cockpit to go together smoothly? I struggled with them today for a while before I got a dry fit that I was happy with. Even after that, it wasn't a really good fit. It was like the cockpit tub was wider than it should have been. Oh well, I got it to go together and I'm happy with the result. I am going to wait to put on the landing gear. The instructions say to put them on early in the build. I can see myself breaking them off before I'm done, so I'm going to wait. That doesn't mean I can't start working on them. The landing gear will be airbrushed again, I saw areas that didn't get a good covering in the initial spray. This goes for the main landing gear too. Lastly a shot of the front wheel well. Thank you for looking. Steveo
  10. I've got one on the way from Germany. I can hardly wait to get it. Steve
  11. I think I can help: I've got some more, mostly exterior pictures. Let me know if this helps, or if you need more pictures. Steve
  12. Cockpit continued: I have just finished spraying the landing gear and the front landing gear wheel well. More work ahead tonight and more progress shots soon. Thank you for looking. Steveo
  13. Good progress today on the cockpit. This is OOB, but I spent a lot of time on it getting it to look as good as possible. I dry brushed some grey on the seats to give the worn look to them: The majority of the day was spent on the instrument and control panels. I painted the overall surface with GSI H317 (Gray) then brought up the individual control surfaces with flat black. To bring out the true details of the individual buttons and control knobs, I used a combination of dry brushing a light gray GSI H308 and a high detailing tool called a tooth-pick: The next post will have the rest of the pictures of the cockpit coming together.
  14. Catfan, for the interior I used GSI H317, or also known as FS36231. You know, it does look green doesn't it? I'm looking forward to your build. Steveo
  15. My first go at a F-14 kit. I understand that it can have it's challenges, but what's life without some challenge? I value any criticism whether good or bad, so help a brother out please. Here goes: It's just a little of the work so far. More coming soon. Steveo
