    Alclad primers: Suggestions, advices, opinions.

    The base coat of aluminum is on. I'm now in the middle of masking off the different shades. Let's just say it's kind of stalled a bit. I've got a couple of other projects I want to finish up, then I'll get back to that bad boy.

    Alclad primers: Suggestions, advices, opinions.

    I rarely prime when using Alclad and get decent results. I've never had any problems with the Alclad pulling up. With that said, the only reason I don't prime most of the time is pure laziness. 😊 If I'm doing an overall NMF which required sanding of seams, then I'll prime. I'm building a 1/72 B-36 right now and primed with Alclad White Primer because there was a LOT of sanding on the fuselage seams.

    Got it. I didn't think about the NACA vent there.

    Actually, that slot is going the opposite direction of the Tamiya parts. Hmmm.

    Gaging interest: Crowdfunded model kits

    It sounds intriguing and a way to get some obscure subjects done. A 1/48 F11F Tiger would be perfect for something like this. It would seem no main-stream manufacturer is going to come out with one.

    I have a question about the tails. They seem to be on the original sprue, and it doesn't look like there are any sprue gates to switch out molds. Does this mean the original molds have been altered for the late style tail braces and the early style won't be available except in the first release A kits? It may not be that big of a deal, as most of the Tomcats eventually got those braces.

    Got it! That's why I've never seen them before.

    That's a great shot! It just proves there's still things for me to learn about the Tomcat.

    I'm curious what the four indentions are in engine area. Those are new to me.

    How true that is! In regards to the decal sheet having the same squadron but different schemes...I've never understood that. How many people are really going to do every scheme from the sheet? Essentially you're buying a $20 sheet for one set of markings. I'd rather have a number of different squadrons on one sheet.
