Adding Barracuda Cast Seat, Wheels with Eduard Sutton Harness. Kit decals along with some Tiffy specific stenciling will lay ontop of Vallejo paints.

I will be detailing the cockpit, wheel wells and thats about it.

 

I need to finish my 1/72 Foray then I will dive into this beast.

Ooh I'm trying to resist getting into all that Shawn.....I'm going Neanderthal on my build even with the IP, I can live with the lack of detail on this one, I think (get thee behind me detailing Satan!)!!  So, any thoughts about the raised rivets and panel lines? :hmmm:  :wicked:

I built that kit a few years back.  Mine was molded from green plastic.

 

Does it still have the HUGE raised rivets everywhere?  I found it a surprisingly bad kit....but I imagine it was state of the art when released in 1972 or whenever.  Also, we are definitely spoiled by today's releases....

 

I found myself scratch building the entire cockpit, and sanding/rescribing everywhere else.

 

Here's the build thread if you are interested:

I find this a bit confusing, Shawn. As far as I am aware, Revell never released a bubble top.

I think Paragon did a bubble top conversion...

 

They did indeed, but Shawn is referring to the Revell fuselage, or at least that's what I think he's referring to.
