Finished this one, the AMT kit with fantastic Wolfpak decals from two different sheets. It's the "First" Wild Weasel, the one that scored the very first kill on a SAM site, crewed by Donovan and Lamb. 

Also used a Master Model brass pitot boom, and modified F-94 seats from True Details to get something close enough to Super Sabre seats.

Wanted to deepen the afterburner; discovered a McDonald's straw is about exactly the right diameter.


My work's been declining in recent years, less detail etc....must be a middle-aged thing.


One thing I am proud of is the empty LAU-3 rocket pods, as I wanted this to be "after" the historic kill. Lots of drilling on a tiny bit of plastic...and at both ends, too! Maybe should have had slightly more pronounced scorch marks, but then again maybe not.
