A-10 LOADER Posted January 14, 2016 Share Posted January 14, 2016 I have decided to moved this to this forum for now since there are changes being made. Just to bring everyone up to speed ... Let me start out by saying that this did not start out as your traditional "model kit" and I did not build it. It is a pre-built / finished model released by JSI International LTD. It was their second release, of their F-14 Tomcats, in 2011 and since I'm nuts about Tomcats I had to have it. Their first version was a very poorly finished VF-84 F-14A, released in 2009. I am currently converting the VF-84 F-14A into a VF-103 F-14B, which can be viewed in this forum as well, if you so choose. I was much happier with their paint job on this second version that I chosen to leave her as is, kind of a BEFORE and AFTER versions if you will. I did do a couple of modifications however, first I added a Pilot and RIO and custom painted their helmets in VF-154 livery and added kneeboards to the aircrew. I also painted the CCG ( Computer Control Group ) of the GBU-16's flat brown. Working on a new display for my 1/18th scale "Black Knights" Tomcat. Here is a teaser shot. The box, made from leftover tounge and groove siding from when I redid my oldest son's room over the summer, is 43" X 40". The box stands 41" tall. The 3/4" MDF top will be finished with an ocean effect and that die-cast carrier will be incorporated as well. Stay tuned .... I hope you all enjoy the photos and don't mind that I posted this here, thanks. Steve Quote Link to post Share on other sites
