  1. Pavehawks yankin' and bankin'! Ooo rah! Vern
  2. I did one as well for the Revell Monogram group build. Not perfect, but I like it. Vern
  3. I took too much time off from this build to finish other projects. I am back at it. I did a stupid thing a while back and decided to cut off the exhaust fairing from the top and bottom halves of the fuselage and use the one piece fairing. Well, the XL has a different contour than the A. So, I have been fixing that mistake. I started by filling the gap with 0.010" strip. Next, I laminated the fairing to the correct diameter.

  8. Finally back to this build after 3 contests (CoMMiESFest, ModelFest at Starfest, and Wonderfest) and one very difficult model. I had to replace the pitot tube assembly on the ejection seat. I broke it during drybrushing. I'm not using any aftermarket on the kit except on the seat. I tried something new on the cockpit and used a toothpick to paint the knobs and switches. Not entirely happy with how it turned out, but I learned. Fuselage has been painted and glossed for the wash. Still need to flat coat and drybrush. I have been w
  9. Excellent, sir! She is on my wish list. Vern
