Michael Hickey Thanks Guys.
@Clifford, that wife is now an ex-wife and the only thing I'd like to do with her is feed her to the sharks, but you know with cruelty to animal organizations and shark lovers I don't think I'd get away with it.
Rob van Dodewaard very nice indeed. i am also building one at this moment right now I am wondering about the colour scheme I mean with or without black fuselage but definetely with RLM 76 squiggles over RLM 75 it wil take a while but as far as I understand this is the way it was originaly painted as well

I'll turn this RF-4E back into a RF-4C. It will be in the markings of 65-0843, 106th TRS, 117th TRW, Sheikh Isa AB, Bahrain, 1991. She was withdrawn from use on the 9th October, 1992, and now sits at AMARC.
Michael Hickey Revell is good if your a beginner, but you really need to build a Hasegawa Tomcat do get a more accurate version. HobbyBoss, you get a lot of extra things like radar, engines and I think weapons. But I've got way too many Hasegawa kits to start collecting HobbyBoss Kits, plus I have just about every resin aftermarket set you can get for the Hasegawa F-14 and because I do my own molding I don't want to go and buy all the same stuff for the HobbyBoss kit. My mate gave me a HobbyBoss F-14 but I haven't really started it yet.

Clifford Keesler Well I would not classify myself as a beginner, I will give the Hasagewa a try. And maybe a HobbyBoss too. I have a Kinetics A-6E which looks like it will be very nice. It is my first Kinetics kit. I have come to like Trumpeter kits also. So I am expanding my range of manafucaters.

Michael Hickey I like Kinetic kits, I have quite a few of their F-16's, an E-2C that just fell together (still on the bench) , Tracker and Greyhound. I find Trumpeter pretty good as well, people say they have some inaccuracies in their kits but most of the time they are easily fixed, and they go together well. My F-100 Super Sabre only took me just under two weeks to build, and that was including putting in an Aires cockpit set.

Clifford Keesler I have a few Trumpy kits in the stash, been buying PE and Resin before starting any of them. My Hasegawa F-14D and goodies are on their way. Can't wait to see them.
David Lengyel Them wing gloves looks scary to me. Great work with the PE parts!

Michael Hickey @David, that's what I first thought too, but after you use the template to cut out the top part of the fuselage making sure you have a nice straight edge. Get your knife and bend the wing glove so you get a nicely shaped curve, it doesn't have to be to much. Then take parts 2 - 5 and bend at about 45 degrees. Do one at a time, it's time consuming but if you take your time it works out great and isn't all that hard. Hope this helps, but if you get stuck give me a yell.

Michael Hickey I'll put this one down for a little while and go onto my RF-4C.
This is my British Staffordshire Bullterrier, his name is Buster. I like to take him to the park and beach so I can have a break from modeling during the day. When I model he usually sits in my hobby room and keeps me company.
Harry Eder Oh yeah, I know this from my lady-dog, she will get two years in may and she is always very crazy and playful.

Michael Hickey And all he wants to do is chew everything, I got him this chew toy, it's supposed to take 1000kg of compression within 2 days it was little pieces all over the yard. I like to get him cow legs to chew on, that keeps him busy for a few days.
