    The only thing holding up the resin is a proper place to set up the casting equipment. That is currently being addressed. I'm refinishing my basement and moving my office and work space down there. Once it is finished, I'll begin casting.

    Here are "istructions". I put together two of last casted exhaust and everything fit perfect...

    Onto the finish of this project. 
     
    It was recommended to me that a good addition to the basket on the rear of the trailer would be a set of chocks. My good mate Dave happened to have one of them and he willingly photographed and measured it up for me so that I could scratch build it.
     
    I carved one out of a chunk of resin, and made a copy of the master. I figured I might do a couple of extra copies for the RAAF models  that I already have in the cabinet.
     

     
    Suitably weathered
     

     
    ’thrown’ into the back of the tractor.
     

     
    I used strips of Tamiya tape that I primed and painted to depict the ratchet straps. A lot of time went into working out where each one went, given the limited reference photos available.
     

     
    I spent the morning patiently waiting for the postie to arrive, after Dave let me know that the decals were in the overnight post. Given the approaching weekend, and the fact that the Canberra show is only a week away with a busy week of my day job ahead of me, my heart sunk when the postie cruised on past my house without stopping, only to be filled with happiness when he miraculously did a U turn and come back, small envelope in hand.this was the moment I had been waiting for!
     
    The decals took a bit of tweaking size wise, but other than that, they came out great.
     

     

     
    Now the project was finished. I will take studio photos soon but in the meantime, here are some workbench pics. Many thanks to those that assisted with this project.

    But better to have an inaccurate MiG-25 in 1/32 than no MiG-25. We are modelers and can handle it. Thats our job

    Tomcatfreak reacted to Zactoman in F-14 Phoenix pallets in 1/32...   
    It's pretty low on the list since Eduard already released a set.
     
    I'll consider both of these, though I glanced through my Tomcat references and don't really have good enough references for either.
     
    They are made to fit the Trumpeter kit.
    I did set a pair on the Tamiya kit and it looks like they might fit with a little work.
     
    To keep the price down I decided to just fix the horrible forward section.
     

     
    I will be starting a thread in the vendors forum in a few days.

    Hi, caps are a combination of an Evergreen tube 5,5 mm, milliput standard and copper wire. I make them ad hoc when I need some, it is easy...
