Thanks Kev. You may notice that I have not added rivets, which I normally do. However with this being a prototype I have decided to hold off. Spend more time and effort on build #2.

 

Also looking at 100's of photos it is hard to actually see any rivets on the real deal. It does however add visual interest to a model. So still undecided on rivets on #2.

As I come closer to a finished product I realized that I would need to provide engine exhaust parts with nozzles.

 

So here is the first one off of the printer. There are better resin J-79's out there to be sure but I wanted to provide something.

As I inch toward the finish line on this project I am preparing all components for a limited production run.

 

I have decals coming from a fellow LSPer to provide the smaller markings and hope to have paint masks for the larger markings. There will be 2 squadrons available,  VAH-1 and VAH-7.

 

I will produce kits for all that are interested. I expect to sell the kit for approximately $100. Shipping in the US should be about $15. International would be calculated depending on country. 

 

I am trying to gauge interest here on LSP. If interested please let me know.  I don't expect to sell more than a handful but if interest is greater than I expect I need to know.

 

I would hope to be ready to enter production sometime in the October. Each kit would take approximately 1 week to complete.

 

As you can see from following this work in progress the shapes look quite good. It is a big model, 25 inches long with a wingspan of 20 inches. Part preparation will entail filling and sanding before paint.

 

Thanks in advance, Dan
