    Hi all - calling this one completed - had an enforced 4 month break from modelling with a family trauma but the urge to do some modelling is returning - will post some photos on RFI https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/82861-ran-a4g-skyhawk/&tab=comments#comment-1167122 CJP

    Thanks guys - It was a really fiddly task & I lost half a dozen vortex generators that "pinged" off to the carpet monster however Eduard do provide plenty of spares on the etch - I think even with the ones I lost there is still enough to do another A4! Chris

    After studying the A4's models by Anthony in NZ, GDW and alaninaustria I made a start on fitting those etched Eduard vortex generators - having got the camouflage colours as good as my modelling skills will allow I was reluctant to spray through the template as alaninaustria did to mark out the positions of the vortex generators so I took a less risky approach for me of daubing paint with a stiff brush through the templates I had taped to the wing. j When the paint had dried I placed the template on the wing again and marked the straight edge of the VG's leaving a white scribed line I then marked the leading edge of the VG's with strips of white tape - I then I picked up each VG with my Tamiya tweezers and placed a tiny blob of CA on it and carefully lined each one with the white line and tape - after a few goes I was able to position them pretty accurately and it was not hard to remove ones that were not properly aligned & reposition them again - the CA seems to bond to the acrylic paint well enough to hold them firm. A bit of careful touch up painting of the VG followed and a consult of the decreasing list of things to do! CJP

    I purchased the Flight Path 1/32 US Navy Carrier Deck set - it has a nice easy to assemble white metal boarding ladder and tow bar with etched detail - the wheel chocks are a fold up etch & I have put them aside for now as I don't find them that easy to assemble - a nice cast set would have been easier for me - still need to finish painting the ladder CJP

    Thanks Greg - I have been looking at your AF-1 and its good to see you able to get back into it again - I've picked up a lot of tips from you and alaninaustria about fitting those vortex generators on my A4G when I can get to it - I have my folding tool and Tamiya diamond file ready to go - just need some patience & a steady hand.
