Greetings everyone,

First of all, Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.

Another milestone was accomplished on Friday, the top color, FS 35237 Medium Gray, was applied to the Big Cat. To say that I'm happy would be an understatement. Finally after 6 years of more off than on work, the Tomcat is starting to come together. All the details that I meticulously added to the airframe are finally starting to shine. It was a TON OF WORK but, so worth it IMO.

There are a couple of very small areas that need some sanding, with 4000, before I can add some of the other colors before I gloss coat.

Thanks to all who are still following along, it's greatly appreciated. On to the pics, enjoy.

 

Steve

Greetings everyone,
Small update for tonight, I masked off to spray the airbags on the Big Cat. Overkill I know but, at this stage of the game and after all this work I'd rather be safe than sorry. I'll spray these tomorrow along with other small areas this week. Small steps but, progress none the less.
Thanks to everyone who's still keeping a watch on this project.

Steve

Really looking good. Your panel line work is really paying now with a coat of paint. Exceptional work.I wish I'd picked one of these up when they came out.
