oortiz10 Posted January 22 Share Posted January 22 Greetings ARC! This is my first completion for 2023. This kit was a blast! If you do not have this kit, get one. If you do have it, build it. If you've built it, build another! Mine was a bagged kit that I picked up at a swap meet. It included a set of resin wheels, but I didn't use them. Everything is OOB except for the markings. They're a mix of spares, kit and Eagle Strike decals. Paint is Alclad for the NMF. Everything else is MM, Testors "little square enamels", and AK Real Color lacquers. My references showed that these airframes were kept pretty clean, so the little weathering I did was a wash using Flory's water based products. I used a little artistic license on the drop tanks. I've seen various photos of early jets that had their drop tanks decorated. The kit's sheet included some decals for a fin flash and canopy rail markings that included starts. I cut the stars from the kit's decal sheet and added them to the painted tanks. (I like the way they look, and that's what's important, right?) Anyway, I think it's another solid 3-footer to add to my collection. Allow me to share some photos... Thanks for looking. Feel free to drop your two cents into the bucket. Comments, questions, and criticisms are welcome, as usual. Cheers! -O Quote Link to post Share on other sites
