I've started on another Academy F/A-18C Hornet - the workbench is chocked full with parts.  The Tomcat just wore me down but I'm sure it will get completed in the future.

Looking forward to your Hornet thread and when the juices start flowing again for the Tomcat, we'll all be waiting.

Keep 'em coming

Have you considered the Aires F-14A nozzles for the Tamiya kit?  They might fit and they look really nice.  Kit # 2188 if you're interested.




As above Marcel, Aires also makes really nice nozzles for the F-14B/D as well.  Also, with some work and lots of aftermarket parts, the Trumpeter kit can look really good.




If you're interested Kirk, I have a build thread of the A-10A (converted to A-10C) kit here.  It was a lot of work, but the end result turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. :rolleyes:   Skip to the last page to see the results......






Hi Chuck,


Thank you and yes I have followed your A-10C build over on ARC and you most certainly conquered that challenge.  One of these days I will muster up the courage to tackle it, but for the time being my professional work keeps me way to busy and have I limited time to model, so keeping project(s) on the bench that do not require intensive care.  Love you current F-15 build, that one I may tackle myself very soon.
