JOHN THOMAS Thanks Tim and Bob, it's a nice little kit. I lose the build photos. The kit is from Dragon with some nice details in the cockpit and aft compartment.

Tom ... Excellent build, John. It's loaded up to the gills!
10. February, 22:22
Greg Baker Great work John, as always. It's funny, for the first time I understand why a lot of people ask about putting figures into my Tintin builds. It does seem like that would be a nice addition, even if it is a bit understandably hard to manage in this scale.
10. February, 22:28
JOHN THOMAS Thanks Greg, I would have like to have added figures if I could fine some nice ones. All of the ones I have are just horrible. I liked the way the SAS Jeep turned out. It's the first time I used Pigments in a project and I may be doing more Armor in the future.

JOHN THOMAS Thanks Tom.

JOHN THOMAS Thanks Tom, it's the standard Academy jeep kit that I modify a little

Project: Simple Wood Display Base
Scratchbuilt
30. March 2018, 12:41
JOHN THOMAS I needed to make some bases for a contest I was entering. I like to give some context to the models that I build, so I did a little demo on how I make simple wood bases.
30. March 2018, 12:51
Patrick Hagelstein Wow! Those look really cool! And by the looks of it, they seem simple to produce. I like it!
30. March 2018, 12:54
JOHN THOMAS Yes Patrick, the bases took less than a day to make and you can make as many as you like. The photo coping of the Verlinden's cards makes it a very simple way to make a base. I do think they also make them in 1:48 scale. I have not done any Snow, Dirt, sand or Mud but will add them whem I need them
30. March 2018, 13:28
Gursel Kona Nice and simple. I like it.
2. April 2018, 20:43
JOHN THOMAS Gursel, Thanks
3. April 2018, 00:34
Spanjaard nice ideas!
8. February, 22:59
JOHN THOMAS I have added my SAS JEEP base to this album. This base is for Dirt and Sand. Just need to do some Snow and Mud.

JOHN THOMAS Wow Mike, that sound really cool. I would like to see what you come up with.
25. January, 20:59
JD Oh yeah! Gotta watch this...could be epic!
25. January, 23:31
JOHN THOMAS JD, thanks, let the light shine
26. January, 14:10
Starbase101 Each time I see "No" for the scale of the various TRON kits I find myself wanting to do the math and calculate an actual scale, 1:100000000000000.....or something. :)
26. January, 15:22
JD Here's a thought, I've used glow in the dark as well as neon fluorescent paint lit with a black light to great effect, sorry no pics to back it up 8)
26. January, 21:49

JOHN THOMAS New photos up today. Started painted using my new H&S Infinity 2&1. I used the .2mm needle spraying Model Master Acrylic at 20psi
14. December 2019, 18:09
Nathan Dempsey Nice progress John. Can't wait to see more.
23. December 2019, 13:10
JOHN THOMAS New photos up today. I finished the main painting of the airframe and started detail painting and painting of the small bits
23. December 2019, 13:11
JOHN THOMAS Roland, Thanks. The quality of the kit is OK. It's not as detailed as the Hasegawa's A-4 and it does take some care to get good results. So far the fit of the kit is fine. I am now just getting in to the small bits and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
23. December 2019, 14:36
Clifford Keesler Looking nice John.
24. December 2019, 03:25

JOHN THOMAS Hey Christian, Thanks. Urban I am getting ready to brake in the Infinity. I am planing on using it on my A-4 projects. I will post a few photos soon.
10. December 2019, 00:54
Urban Gardini Nice mate, will be nice to follow. Just ask if there's something that you wonder over!
10. December 2019, 09:43
JOHN THOMAS Urban Thanks
10. December 2019, 13:34
JOHN THOMAS I added a photo of my first use of my Infinity

Patrick Hagelstein And how did you like it?
13. December 2019, 04:13
JOHN THOMAS Patrick, Thanks, so far so good. I have only used it for about 1 hour, so far and I really do like it.
13. December 2019, 12:54
Patrick Hagelstein I love the way Harder & Steenbeck designes and manufactures their airbrushes.
13. December 2019, 13:10
JOHN THOMAS Patrick, I agree. I am using the .2mm needle and spraying Model Master Acrylic
Paint at 20psi with a drop of thinner

JOHN THOMAS Hans Thanks, I do have the special hobby 1/48 TA-4 two seater in my stash but for now I want do the Combat A-4s first.
3. December 2019, 01:15
JOHN THOMAS Sorry guys, not Special Hobby but Hasegawa does make a TA-4J two seater in 1/48 scale all so Classic Airframe made one . Some TA-4F/Js did do forward air control (FAC) in a combat rule so I will add this to the list and the over all project.
3. December 2019, 16:45
JOHN THOMAS I have found an old Monogram OA-4M and Hasegawa TA-4J. New photos up today
7. December 2019, 15:36
JOHN THOMAS Hans, Thanks. I am all ways on the hunt for A-4 Skyhawks
7. December 2019, 16:28
JOHN THOMAS Hans Thanks, I am all ways on the hunt for A-4 Skyhawks. I like your A-4 build, nice camo work as well. My work on the A-4B project continues. New photos up today.
7. December 2019, 16:31
Patrick Hagelstein Cool to see how much more of a combat plane the OA-4M is compared to the TA-4J when you compare the boxarts of the Monogram and Hasegawa kits.
7. December 2019, 17:02
Carlos Cisneros Those are decent Scooter kits. They cover the single seat family pretty well. The cockpit needs help though...
7. December 2019, 17:16
JOHN THOMAS Patrick and Carlos, Thanks Patrick the OA-4M was design as a pure combat aircraft, the TA-4F/J was mainly designed as a fleet trainner that could do some combat rolls like FAC. Carlos the kit cockpit is basic and not very accurate but when painted up and installed it does not look to bad

Project: VA-76 A-4C Mig shot down
Scratchbuilt
29. September 2019, 12:19
JOHN THOMAS Hey guy's More A-4s. VA-76 A-4C. I will be modeling Ted Swartz's A-4C which on May 1, 1967 shot down a Mig 17 with Zuni rockets. Swartz shot down was the only A-4 shot down of a Mig during the whole Vietnam War. I will convert the Airfix A-4B to an A-4C. I will use "Attack Squardon" A-4C conversion detail set which has a new resin nose and some PE. Much of the build will be the same as my other A-4 builds.
29. September 2019, 12:39

JOHN THOMAS I will be jumping around from all three of my A-4's projects working on all three at the same time. Note there are some really cool Youtube videos of this A-4C flying.

JOHN THOMAS Some new photos up today

Holger Kranich Are you happy with the new nose? Was the difference so obvious? You put a lot of ellbow grease in your build!
1. October 2019, 14:06
JOHN THOMAS Holger thanks, Yes the new resin nose went on nice. A little trimming and sanding was needed. Getting it alined and square with the fuselage was the only issue.

JOHN THOMAS Hey all. more A-4's. I have started a new A-4. I will be back dating the Airfix A-4B back to an A-4A. This will required some minor surgery. I will be building this A-4A along with my two A-4B's. Much of the same work I did on the A-4Bs will be done on the A-4A. I will modeling an A-4A from around 1958. Some of the Minor surgery required will be Removing the rudder ribs on the tail and remove the wing vortex generators and remove the refueling probe. The A-4As did not have refueling probe also the early A-4As did not have the red slat wells and red trim on gear doors.
