    Thanks! The Montex super mask set is cheaper than most decals, yet includes canopy (inside and outside) and wheel hub masks as well. Cheers, Tom
  4. Really creative approach! Cheers, Tom

    Starting to apply the markings, using Montex masks. With the surface detail on this kit, please don’t use decals! Cheers, Tom

    VF-1 Tomcat decals!!

    The early hi-viz VF-1 markings are my absolute favorite for the Tomcat. It’s great to see this option available. Cheers, Tom

    Matt, Thank you! It definitely took longer to paint with the fine-medium tip on my airbrush (trusty Aztek 470), but I had better control. I will be painting the canopies separately, since I’m using the Montex masks which cover the inside and outside. And yes, definitely using masks for the markings, since I wouldn’t want to hide the detail under decals! The Montex and Maketar mask sets are cheaper, finish better, and are more reliable than decal sets; not sure why more people don’t use them. Cheers, Tom

    Richard, Thank you! This is an amazing kit, easily one of my favorite builds so far, in any scale. I’ve been really impressed with the engineering, fit, and attention to detail. I would encourage you to have at it! I’m tempted to launch into the bubbletop version next, but have to finish this first... Cheers, Tom

    Brian, Thanks! Not invasion stripes: the ID stripes the Tiffies used before D-Day to prevent confusion with the FW-190’s, which they resembled. Cheers, Tom
