  1. This pic always makes me laugh. Never would you ever see anyone this close in a ready room. Slider is waaaaaaaay inside the bubble. Well you might see this in an Air Force ready room…but dear lord never on the boat or beach in a Navy squadron. Now the guy in the background…zipper down past the front pockets on his bag…sleeves rolled up more than 1-2 folds…legit. Oh they are gonna love me at the CAOC in a few weeks. Cheers Collin
  2. That would be awesome. I have the Hasegawa kit markings so I should be fine with just getting the VX-23 specific markings. Collin Tatusko tatuskocs@gmail.com

    We actually liked our VF bubbas. They had the oldest A’s in the fleet, and their wardroom (other than their Skipper at the time) didn’t have the Tomcat chip on their shoulder…they knew they were flying wooden-nose (some of the time) smokin TF30- gramps models. But the locals loved them to death. Cheers Collin
  4. You can have mine. I’m doing the NATC Pax bird on the sheet (as well as the VF-74 tail as well)….so the TPS decals are yours. PM me with your address. Cheers Collin

    Never ever never never ever take non-GPS F-14A’s on a MINEX with Quickstrike. That’s one event in my JO days I wished we had a “re-do” on. VF-### crew…”well they came off the jet!!” Me: “yeah, but where did they go?” A-6 crews: “I think they are over there!!!” Hornet bubbas: “we don’t know, we were RTB to stay on our fuel ladder”.

  6. They work great for rapid black basing. Just keep it random. Cheers Collin
  7. Thanks for putting a very detailed thread together on this build. Your build and painting process, while a level above my personal “slightly more that OOB” style, has given me some good ideas on simple improvements I can add to my kits. I recently built the same kit OOB…one of the most enjoyable build I’ve done in awhile. Cheers Collin
  8. Wow, those last two shots are excellent photos for weathering reference. Cheers Collin
  9. Specifically the first on the sheet: AV-8A BuNo. 158703 (flight test scheme w/orange panels) Anyone care to spare those decals if they aren't going to use them? Cheers Collin
