  1. The canopy tint trick is very cool! I am definitely going to have to try that. Nice job refining all the parts too 👍🏻 Steve
  2. Thanks Ron! The F-4 is a beast! I was lucky to get a ride in the backseat if an RF-4C at Tyndall during my time on the USAF. I was impressed with the raw power of the darn thing! Definitely a different feel than the refined F-15E experience 😂 Yes sir, that’s it...just AM belts. The included decals go down very well over the raised detail 👍🏻 And thank you for the compliment! Interesting 🤔 I didn’t know that. The fit of everything is very straightforward. I would imagine that without the bulkhead things might be a bit fiddly! This kit i
  3. Ugh. I am very sorry to hear that. As a fellow airline pilot, I can relate to how this pandemic has destroyed our industry. Good luck on the move and thanks for sharing this incredible build with us! Steve
  4. Update 10/23 “Seamless” intakes...putty, sand, repeat, putty, sand, repeat 😂 Ok, I’ll admit- there are some flaws behind the curve.

  8. The J79 engines are done. Well, at least the one that got the extra TLC 😉. Now, I have to finish the display stand...take a few more pics, and bury this beauty in the belly of the beast! But, for the super-detailers out there, ZM has provided an excellent starting point out of the box and I hope I’ve done it some justice. Steve
  9. I’m right there with you and I’m $ure you will her great support!
  10. Me too! Thank you 😊 It’s coming - I believe next year was the plan!
  11. Hi Craig, I just used them for my ZM F-4E build. I found them easy to work with. I may add some heat to the process next time though. Go back a page in this thread to see them or, to see my F-4 seats with the Nano Belts painted up, check out my build thread in the “In-Progress” section.
