  1. Thank you sir! I did get carried away with the weathering for sure. Thank you Andy, I know less is more, but still went overboard. I may try to lighten it up some at some point, the main color came out a bit dark for my liking as well. I’m gonna put it aside for a week or so, and start my Tomcat I think. Cheers, David
  2. My neighbor came back that night with her iPad and was going to buy me a whole new model. I said no, but she wasn’t having it and we settled on the Aires exhaust for my F-14D build and Revell’s 1/144 SuperCat as well. Anyway, here are a few snaps as she sits today on her revetment. I went a little nuts with the weathering and chipping, some of it was an attempt to mask damage, but I’ve learned a lot and will definitely do another one. More pics when I get motivated to stick the flaps back on it. That was a chore the first time and not relishing it this second. I know they didn’t o
  3. I've been using IMGR for the last few photo's Ive taken, but for me at least, it's not quite as user friendly as Photobucket. Still, I'm tired of photobuckets's crap for sure, I took all my images down a couple months back, except those I'd link to from this site..
  4. Haven't updated in a while... never fear CATCplSlade. It survived this encounter in my office & the ride to/from (several times actually). Sadly it didn't get away unscathed from a later encounter. I paint & do other loathsome toxic things, masked, out in my unheated garage or driveway, Ohio weather permitting. Suffice to say a thunderstorm & my newish neighbor's skittish dog (a very friendly 100lb Rottie) charging into my garage caused this plane's perch to topple over & it cracked it open down fuselage seem, broke some parts off including the gear &
  5. Nice work so far! I can only hope to do half as well on my Super Tomcat when I start it. Which might be tonight now!
  6. That is indeed “Red 9” CAT. I was also saddened to discover 21C went belly up, I hadn’t acquired all the toys I wanted! And I would say it did influence me to get back into this hobby, also. That is an impressive collection you have there! Here is another angle of “Red 9” with the Fort. I love the lines of the radial engine FW’s. It’s a beautiful airplane from any angle, except on your six I suppose. Cheers, David
  7. Thank you Craig, it’s been a while, over the winter I gave it a break mostly because it was ready for primer and paint, and I can only paint in my unheated Ohio garage currently. Speaking of paint, I’ve found when it’s not bathed in the fluorescent lighting at my office, but in more natural light at home that green isn’t quite so jolting and Japanese camo in hue. Still not where I want it, but I’ll get there. I don’t recall CAT, but I will let you know in the morning. If you’d like some other angles of it, I can post them here. Those two fighters and
  8. Greetings all! A lot of progress and a good deal of head scratchin’ since the last update. Waist crew door only needs handles and paint now. Hinges are doctored pieces of the PE sprues. First coat is on {MM Dark Green Enamel 50/50 with Testor’s Airbrush thinner} over thinned flat black enamel preshading (wings only). I’ve never done preshading before and I thought it was pretty dark before the first coat of color, so I freaked out a little and opted for post shading for the fuse. Now I’m concerned I’ll lose the wing preshading after a second coat.
  9. Greetings all, It's been a while since I posted an update, but I was busy with the B-17, mostly seam work using Squadron (green) and Mr Surfacer 500, built up with a small brush. There were a few doozies as seen above, most of my doing. One or two remain and then plenty of re-scribing and rivets. With the warmer weather and being able to paint out in my garage I have primed all wing/engine nacelles seams looking for imperfections and addressing those. Engine and props done save decals, nacelles and cowl flaps (PE) primed. Fixed the chin tur
  10. Thank you Starfighter, I hadn't seen that thread yet, very informative read! I made note of a couple suggestions, and also will re-visit once the build commences! R/S David
  11. Hey Dave, thank you, much appreciate your input on my upcoming build, once again, I’ll save my cash for something else! R/S David
  12. Curious if any Tomcat builders have any thoughts on the discontinued Eduard Big Ed mega PE set for the trumpy F-14D? Found one for less than $100 (US), shipped. The extra’s I currently have already ordered; From BNA Model World - Aires cockpit, gear bays, weighted wheels and correct chin pod for the D. From Scalehobbyist - Aires Exhaust Nozzles. And of course the obligatory Intake Correction from Chris at Zactomodels. Thank you in advance for any input! R/S, David
  13. I wouldn't say I'm a Tomcat guy, though imho it is the sexiest, meanest looking jet ever, as I know next to nothing about the variants, load-outs and such like, but I've learned quite a bit recently from the above comments, and just poking around on the internet. I've read the wiki, and many of the wikis for weapons, counter measures and other stores referred to on that wiki, then I found this site which I'm scouring as we speak. http://www.anft.net/f-14/index.htm Edit: now a busted link I'll also follow suggestions to resources I read in the Tomcat posts I find here. I ha
  14. Thanks again Ryan, I will have a look at the Aries cockpit for sure... and I thought your post on those bladders was very clear, and your explanation above as well. I will definitely look at both again, once the kit arrives and I can see them for myself. And I’ll get a WIP going once I get rolling. Have some quite a bit work to do on the Fort to get it ready for paint, combined with the Tomcat, should keep me busy for a while! cheers! Dave
