  1. I keep hoping they’ll get to the Cheetah they mentioned a while ago.
  2. Thanks Mac. Except for kids to buy me kits most of the rest seems quite similar. The room I used to use for airbrush stuff was easily vented w fans and window. After I lost that room the only spot left is on the opposite side of the house and wind blows into the room so fans won’t vent out, so I’m stuck for now. Probably going to have to figure out something in the garage, but as you mentioned, it’s full of crap. I’ll be glad when my Has cat is standing on its legs, too. Yours is looking good!
  3. Is that a basement or garage workshop? I lost my airbrush area to one of our cats that needs her own room and just realized I need to figure something out to get my airbrush up and running again. Been watching when folks post their work areas ; )
  4. Here’s the Tamiya F-14A kit after washing and starting to clip parts. Dont know if these decal sheets will get used or not but I have several Caracal F-106 decals to use also. And I’ll be grabbing a couple PW exhausts from some Tamiya F-16 kits.
  5. I’ve been playing with the Has kit this past week and seeing how much work it’s going to take, so I decided to add a 1/48 Tamiya F-14 kit to my build as an easy build while I plug away at the Has kit. The Tamiya build will go the same route ... USAF what if with ADC or ADTAC markings. Tamiya kit is still parts in the bags. I’ll get a pic later and then get the sprues washed up to get started. On a side note I found I had glued the interior trunk parts inside the intake tunnels on the Has kit. Doesn’t help the fit of the intakes so I’ve separated the internal parts and will start over try
  6. Pics of the kit. Most of the parts are bagged so it could be combined into another box when it looked like we were going to move a while back. Theres also a spare set of Academy Tomcat wings and some spare exhausts I may use. And some ADC decals I may use but we’ll see. Hopefully i’ll actually get started tomorrow, and do a bit better on the pics.
  7. Nice one. What did you think of the kit?
  8. Go for it! Think I’ve seen one done in similar camo and it looked good.
  9. I’ve wanted to do this project for a long time and this seems like a good reason. USAF looked at the F-14 as a replacement for the F-106 and this will be what if they actually got them. So 1/48 Has A model with ADC markings, probably 318th FIS. I’m thinking about changing engines to the PW F100 if I can get some exhausts to fit. Before I can start I need to sort out pic posting. Haven’t posted pics for a long time. Going to try to figure that out so I opened this thread as a place to practice getting some pics up. Hopefully I’ll get a pic up in the next day or two, and then get
  10. Perhaps my practice pics. There’s 15 furballs (all homeless, abandoned, and a few ferals) running around inside and it takes a lot of extra space (trees, nests, etc) to help keep the peace.
  11. I’ve got a 1/48 Has A model set aside for this group build. I’ll be going what-if and doing it in ADC markings (USAF). I’m going to try to fit some PW F100 engine exhausts. First I have to figure out the pic posting thing (and finish a cat tree project) then I should be able to start.
  12. Looking for a Kinetic J-15. Don’t need the figures or deck vehicle. If you’d like to trade let me know what you might like. Im in the US, near Seattle. cheers Gary
