  1. I think I have a plan, Gazz. I'll post when I'm ready.
  2. Those tiny PE pieces are all the same size. Unfortunately, the spacing on the kit is not uniform. Out with the calipers, quite a bit of variation - I'll have to cut each piece to size. I just need to figure a way to hold them. This is going to take a while.
  3. Those screw holes on the bottom of the fuselage bother me. I cut some sheet plastic, and chucked it into a dremel bit. I don't have a lathe, so I use what I have. Glued in place, with some 0.060' (1.5 mm) rod to fill the hole. A little sanding, and I've got this. Thankfully, I only had to do three of them - it was pretty time consuming. And some white...
  4. The post man left a few items for me today. Some AM for my Academy Hornet... And I got a very good price on this...
  5. Nice haul, Mark! No comment on the SAC landing gear.
  6. One of the last seams to be filled. I think. I had one area that I should have sanded prior to installing the intakes. I had to fashion a sanding tool out of Evergreen strip. There are a few small panel lines that I missed while scribing. Once I take care of those, I'll need to do some final surface prep and off to the spray booth.
  7. Looking good, John. I've got the Navy version in process, and I just received the toilet bomb. My static dischargers are intact, but I did manage to snap off a cannon barrel.
  8. It looks great, Phil! Trumpy's 1/32 kits can be hit or his; they definitely used their A team on the TBF/TBM kits.
  9. I was very pleased with the Quinta Studios set for the Tamiya Tomcat. I just ordered the cockpit upgrade for my Academy F-18.

    Welcome to the Forums, Ernie!
  11. Back after my camping trip... some minor masking. Nearly done with the missiles. Lots of decals.
  12. It was like Christmas here today... I find that I use these a lot. Never for paint or CA.
  13. Back at it. Got some PE work done on the gear doors. Some of the hinges are tiny, with multiple folds... Plenty of PE for the main gear. Thirty pieces to dress up the engine bay. I probably should have added these prior to attaching the tails. Only five more weeks until the PE nozzles are due to arrive.
