Andrew & Chris, Our local high school's mascot it the Pirate. Sooooo, obviously I had to do some airplanes in this livery. I am an Air Force fan, but I have always liked the markings of VF-84 and VF-103. My son's favorite airplane is the F-14, so it was a no-brainer that he got one done up in VF-84 markings. I guess that I should be a good citizen and build some models for the school to display. Hey, great job. I am sure that it took a lot of time, patience, effort, etc. to get this project to where it's at now. I am thoroughly impressed. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to more of your models.

I'm a huge Jolly Rogers fan myself. I have most of those but in 1/72, I have a couple done and the rest in my stash. You guys have done a wonderful job and given me motivation to get a crack-a-lackin on my own stuff. Thanks for pics!

Thanks everyone for your kind words. Chris still has Tom Blackburn's big hog to add and I have another f4n and a superbug to be added. Fulcrum the f8 decals were cutting edge decals.

Cheers and thanks

Andrew and Chris
