  1. Nice Tornado! I have the Revell 1/32 with those markings I intend to do at some point.
  2. Thank you. 🙂 The DXM set. I would highly recommend them if you want to do a VF-1. They have like 5 different sets of markings for them from the original like the one I did, to low viz schemes. And Pax River! Southern MD guy here. 🙂
  3. My second Cat from my dual build. The Tamiya 1/48 F-14A done as a VF-1 plane from the evacuation of Saigon. Plus a couple pics of both cats together. 🙂
  4. Just finished the AMK 1/48 F-14D in the Vandy 1 livery. The kits is very good, but also Jekyll and Hyde. Mostly very good fit, but some really not so good fits. The fuselage to body join was especially bad. Though over all, much recommended. My phone camera is being wonky, so the pics do not do it justice.
  5. Finished this up last week. Kitty Hawk SU-35 in 1/48. The kit itself is fantastic. No fit issues. As a matter of fact, the intakes were a dream! And I HATE intakes. This is well engineered kit, with excellent quality. The exhausts are fantastic BUT they only give you the option of having them straight back, as in flight or powered up. There is no drooped option. I had to get a resin set to be able to do that. Regardless, for the plastic, an A. The directions. Graphically, excellent. Instructional wise, they suck. Even with careful examination I had to take apart a few
  6. The review HomeBe posted is informative. I will have to check these out.
  7. I know there have been a few sets done. I know Hasegawa also had a boxing of this as well. I did notice some things that were not totally accurate with Revells decals, but they are fairly close. I was happy with them.
  8. The decals are thick. Which I liked in this case. You have to do a lot of fiddling around with the large ones to get them in place. If they were overly thin, they would not have stood up to the handling. Use Solvaset. Micro set is NOT going to be strong enough. I applied the Solvaset, let it sit for a few minutes and wiped it of. Next day the decals were settled down well.
  9. Got mine yesterday. Looks like a good kit. Clearly not from a large company. The instructions and decals were packed in a page protector for note books. LOL The decals in it dont look bad at all, but I will likely get the Caracal set also.
  10. I happen to have one of these in the stash. Will have to work on getting another it seems. 🙂
  11. Interesting article! A Huskie that went on a diet. LOL
  12. I thought there were a number of them in civilian hands still flying. Could easily be wrong on that.
