ok the A-10 is almost dry, got some clean up to do, but that was expected, didnt work on the -111I today, havent been feeling well ( might be the rattle can fumes i been dealing with lol) the S-3 got a coat of german grey, i figure that way i can still do many a camo scheme on it, the A-37 got its pit painted, and the gear for both the A-37 and F-15 got painted as well, the -15 got shade of dark grey, but make no mistake this F-15 will be differnt from anything anyone has seen before
