  1. Jesus Elmo, that door is amazing !! The work you do, with the smallest parts, is absolutely incredible. LOVE this update and I'm really looking forward to your next update as always. Steve
  2. Once again, SUPERB craftsmanship there Elmo, you never cease to amaze us. Looking forward to the next update. Steve
  3. This pic shows the top pylon de-carted, which is why the cart retainers are reversed. The jet would NEVER fly with the retainer reversed obviously. The lower one, on the bomb rack, shows the cart retainers safety wired. These would be safety wired for two reasons, 1. If the jet was flying with nothing loaded on this station and 2. some items are not jettisonable, for example on our A-10's they would carry a DRA (Dual Rail Adapter ) on station 11 for the AIM-9's. Station 11 never got carted so, we would safety wire the cart retainers in the X configuration, like above and also safety wire
  4. To the best of my knowledge the book has not been published yet. Steve
  5. The correct BUNOS for the two jets are, AJ-100 162608 AJ-101 161274 I had the same issue with the Fightertown sheet, the BUNOS are not correct. The book is also incorrect. I'm doing a 1/18th scale JSI F-14 repaint for a friend and ran across the same issue. His jet will be AJ-100 from VF-41. As for the loadouts, in the Tony Holmes book " F-14 Tomcat Units of Operation Enduring Freedom ", pages 32 - 43 talk about what VF-14 and VF-41carried. Steve
  6. I have the Shadow Hobby one. I purchased it when I was doing the ramp for my A-6E build so I could spray all the grounding point circles for the ramp. I worked excellent. Steve
  7. WOW, amazing work !! Steve
  8. I've searched and searched and have found nothing worth using. I'm looking for detail shots of the underside of the Shadow. Any help is appreciated, thanks. Steve
  9. Thanks Aigore, that's how I look at it. I'm using the Wolfpack wing fold sets for these two jets. Thanks Sernak. I build to satisfy myself and try to push my boundaries with each build. I like to prove to myself that I can do something new and different but, this is also where I run into trouble, AMS (Advanced Modelers Syndrome ) and take FOREVER to complete a build. I gave up building "for contests" long ago. Steve
  10. Beautifully done sir !! Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"
  11. He's avoiding us. He must have been bombarded with messages. Steve
  12. WOW, she's coming together nicely. Steve
  13. Greetings all, I haven't had much bench time lately but, I did manage to get the S-3B's instrument panel coaming painted, just brushed it because it's still too hot and humid to spray in the booth in the garage, and attached the canopy. Not much of an update but, still progress. Thanks for following along. Steve
