Hello everybody! I am continuing in my fashion of starting projects and not finishing them - yet again!! I have begun by selecting the Trumpeter A-4F Skyhawk kit and I plan on building an Aggressor bird!

This is the aircraft I will be modeling:

I began by building the ACMI Pod from scratch! Using old sprue runners, scrap plastic and some brass and aluminum tube.

This ACMI Pod will eventually go on the center station weapons pylon:
