Thanks again guys, I really appreciate the comments- and I have already changed a few parts shown above after looking at my own pics a little more.

 

Speaking of pics and the discussion above about the panel lines on the tanks (or lack thereof), here's a couple of pics I took last year at the Nellis AFB airshow on an F-15C.  I jacked upon the contrast a bit so that you can see that the panel lines do exist, but they are raised instead of recessed.  I'm OK with keeping the recessed panel lines on the kit tanks, since most rivet detail on any aircraft is usually flush or raised and yet a simple depression in plastic can replicate the "look", even if it's technically inaccurate.

Yes!  I will be using the Wolfpack Israeli ELTA 8222 ECM Pod Set.  I was going to use the Aires AN/ALQ-188 Pod  ("Gecko") on the center station as I've seen mounted before, but the ELTA pod was way more commonly used, again on the port side just aft of the front intake.  Jake's book doesn't have a pic of it, likely because it was used on Aggressor Eagles only, so finding close-up pics of this beast is tough.  I have a few from 8 or more feet away, which should be good enough.

 

There's a pic of this pod here for those who might want to buy one:

Beautiful work as always Chuck. The pylons, tanks and, rails are mini models by themselves. Always enjoy your updates, keep it going.
