    Thanks for stopping by Major Walt. Those pilots were painted for my previous project (Tamiya F-14A). I put up the pic to illustrate my first crude attempts at making ejection seat handles. -co

    Hey Chris, I just printed them on white decal paper. There is white edge that you would have to touch up after cutting out the decal. They are also a little translucent so I doubled them up on the roundel. -co

    Thanks Joel, I was thinking as I was applying the stencils that an F4 would put this effort to shame! I only spotted the decal errors after I applied them. Something looked off and once I figured it out, I just couldn't unsee it. -co

    Seagull from HMAS Australia 1/72

    Really nice work Thommo! The extra detailing on the engine really paid off as it is so visible. Fantastic job with the rigging. It is something I have put off but will hopefully try soon. Glad you decided to add the walkway footprints too. They certainly add interest and I've not seen that before. You weathering is convincing too. Great job all around. -co

    Awesome hand painting on the engine parts Joel. I really like the lower view with the exhaust section.

    Oh wow! Converted from the academy kit??? I'm speechless. To begin with, the plane alone is breathtaking. Add in the wonderful diorama... just wow.

    Nice work Madhatter. I think you definitely aced the variation to the gray. Very convincing finish.
