Pretty in gloss nose again, just need to take off the last round of tape. And tip the nose probe again in steel as the colour went off when I took the liquid masker off.

And with the help of a very friendly contact, I was able to get hold of the right decals for the AN/ALQ-131 jamming pod, here shining in het glossy dress:

Yep and the Tomcat on the background. There’s also an A-7 and an EA-6 there.

Making some static dischargers by heating and pull some sprue, for the wings (6x), stabilisers (8x) and tail (3x and 1 very small on top).

Details which are missing in this Academy kit.

She's getting closer, won't be long now.

My RES/KIT F-111F cockpit finally arrived today so, when I get back to the bench, an Aardvark will be next.

Ah great, you got it straight from Ukraine?

Eager to see how that cockpit looks like.

Yes, straight from Kiev. I ordered it back on April 7th.

I used bristles from an old tooth brusch to make the static discharges. They are easy to get to the same length and they are the same the same thickness and you can make so many that even the carpet monster is happy and full 😛

That’s very smart, thanks.

but still they start at half circles connected to the wings, I will try to replicate that with the melted sprue.

For this sort of thing I used some pieces cut from a plastic wire wheel that came with my dremel when I did my S-3 and, ES-3A. I'll do the same thing when it comes time for my F-111. They are just like toothbrush bristles so they are flexible and won't break plus, they were already black so no painting involved. A careful application of CA on a thin piece of wire attaches them and a quick touch-up of paint hides the CA.
