  1. Little bench time today and managed to get the LAU-7 rails fitted, big improvement. I'll get these and my replacement GBU-38 tail assembly primed and painted. Steve
  2. Thanks crackerjazz, yes the booth works really well. Steve
  3. Very good, thanks for the clarification Dave. Steve
  4. Tamiya paints DO NOT match FS colors. Go with the Mr. Color lacquers. Steve
  5. Like I said earlier, I'll continue to clean mine but, was curious about it, thanks. Steve
  6. I'm wondering if you need to wash these parts before priming/painting ? I do but .... I've always washed my resin parts in a soapy solution but, I'm curious what others do. Steve
  7. I received my replacement GBU-38 tail assembly on Friday along with these little gems. 1/18th scale LAU-7 rails for my AV-8B+, from Flying Leatherneck Decals, thanks very much Dave. This 3D printing stuff is really quite impressive. Steve
  8. One JDAM loaded, three more to go. Modifying the pylons by cutting off those pegs and inserting some .040" brass rods inside the bomb lugs, which still need to be painted and, drilling holes in the pylons. Steve
  9. Thanks, at least I know they'll look better than what she came with. Steve
  10. Finished up three of the four bombs for the most part. Attached the forward strakes, painted the GPS antennas on the tail kit assemblies, flat coated everything including the DSU-33 nose sensors and, had to wait to paint the strake straps and some bolt heads on the tail kit assemblies until my hands weren't so shaky. I may paint the bomb lugs, I have to see how they'll mount on the racks first. I used a length of 1/16" aluminum rod for the TCTS pod probe and rounded over the tip. These JDAMS, by Flying Leatherneck Decals, are extremely well done and are like little models all by themselv
  11. Bombs masked and sprayed, coming together, slowly. Steve
  12. Got some time in the spray booth yesterday and today and was able to get the bombs and the TCTS pod painted. Up next will be the yellow bands for the bomb noses. Steve
