  1. Very interesting read, never knew this. Thanks for sharing Collin. Steve
  2. Congrats, she looks really nice. What's the story behind the Targeting pod ?? I never knew the Prowler was wired to carry it and why would she be carrying it ? Steve
  3. Greetings everyone, Minor update for today. I managed to get some time to work on the A-6 over the weekend. The more I looked at the wingtip "slime lights", the more I didn't like them, they were too plain. I ordered some black striping decals from fundekals (www.fundekals.com) and added the individual stripes to the lights, much better IMO. These decals worked splendid and I highly recommend them. I also purchased the yellow striping sheet as well for the decal stash. I also got the boarding ladder doors painted and added the hinges to them as well. The hinges are still loose and need to be painted once I determine their exact spot. I still need to address a few things before the steps can be permanently fixed in place otherwise they will just be in the way. I also need to redo the centerline fuel tank because I applied the decals too high up. When the tank is installed, you really can't see the wording. That's all for now, thanks to all who are still following along. Steve
  4. Lovely work to date Janissary. Steve "TOMCATS FOREVER, BABY...!"
  5. Greetings all, Pretty much finished up with the ground power units for the display base. Next is to get the base cut and work on creating the flight line. Thanks for following along. Steve
  6. She's looking really good. I totally agree with Collin, in the hands of the right builders these kits can be made into gems. Keep up the great work. Steve
  7. Excellent job, wow !! Nice touch adding all the RBF streamers in their proper locations as well. I especially like that you added the target detector covers over the influence fuse windows. LOVE the Mudhen !! Steve
  8. Very nice job and, great attention to detail !! Steve
  9. More progress today, I got the gear doors and inner pylons glued in place. I'm really happy with how see's looking and, she should look pretty sharp when finished. Thanks for checking in. Steve
  10. I also added some REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT streamers to the Intruders seats and added the canopy jettison streamer to the cockpit. Thanks for having a look. Steve Pilot's seat. B/N's seat.
  11. Trying to post this update yet again, 6th try, this time with less text. Let's see what happens. Some scratch-built ground power equipment for my A-6 display. Hot air hose made from house wire (Romex) and black copper wire from the craft store. Electrical power cord holders. Four posts with some plastic disks for the post caps.
  12. I've been trying to post an update with about 7 pics, since Thursday and, this is the response I get when I hit the SUBMIT button, what gives ?

  13. Thank you sir, that means a lot coming from you. She has her flaws and won't win any contests but, still a respectable build considering she sat for 18 years. Steve
