    1/48 Hasegawa EA-18G Growler

    Seeing that those displays have "power applied" to them you'll be putting aircrew in the cockpit I assume ?? Steve

    Nice work crackerjazz, they look really good. I'm currently decaling my 10 MK-20 Rockeye's that get 18 decals per bomb. I usually enjoy doing the decals but, this is no fun. Steve

    I followed this from the beginning. Ben is a master craftsman and, I think it shows with the final product. You can be VERY proud of this one Ben. Steve
  5. Great display, very nice job kike. Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"
  6. Your display of the VF-154 Black Knights 1/18 JSI F-14 is fantastic.  I have the same F-14 but want to make changes to convert to a VF-111 Sundowner.  However I do not want to paint the entire Aircraft.  Did you make any changes to your F-14.  I am attempting to match the current colors on the aircraft.  Did you know the correct paint colors to match the 2 different grey paints used on the original VF-154 version of the JSI F-14.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

    I managed to get some Dark Ghost Gray on a few pieces today. Not really happy with the seam between the canopy glass and the rear decking so, I'll hit it with some Vallejo plastic putty and try again. I sprayed the intake splitter plate and the inside lip of the intake because it would be impossible to mask / paint them once they were assembled. Once the parts fit together they look really good. I still need to do a wash on the intake fans yet before I glue all this together. I also sprayed the areas behind the intakes because it's easier without the intakes in the way. Short and sweet for today but, still progress. Thanks to everyone following along. Steve
  8. Very nice work pal, you should have been a surgeon. 😁 Steve

    Nice work crackerjazz, great idea using the magnets. I had no idea they came that small. Steve

    Brief update for today, Nothing worth a pic but, I managed to get the starboard side MER finished up last night. I guess having a game plan from the other one helped and, this one went much faster. I'm gonna try and get a few things painted gray this weekend, we'll see what happens. Thanks to all that are following along. Steve
  12. Great catch Chuck and, this is exactly why we do research. Not all model companies get it right. Is Kitty - Hawk related to Trumpeter ?? Trumpeter is known for their kit inaccuracies. Keep up the great work. Steve

    Thanks Hewy, yes I surprised myself. With this many bombs being so close to each other, any alignment issue would really stick out. I got very lucky I guess. The holes, in the MER, have to be carefully drilled and adding the wires to the bombs also helps with alignment issues and, adds strength when it comes time to attach them. Like I said, hopefully the other MER turns out as nice, fingers crossed. Steve

    Minor update for today, I managed to get all the swaybraces glued in place on the port side MER. The Rockeye's all line up really nice thanks to the wire I added to them. Now to concentrate on the starboard side MER. Hopefully that one goes as smooth as well. Steve
