That Globemaster with jets, seen on far right in photo 16 seems hard to get. Being a Revell kit I am surprised they don't seem to sell more of them. Would like to buy one, but not at some premium price off eBay or whatnot.

Treehugger, I know right? I do not for the life of me understand why they stopped producing it. I was tempted to buy all 3 that were on the shelf back when they were first released. I kick myself constantly for not doing so. But who knew?

And the next iteration. I finally got 2 more shelves for the glass cabinet and moved some out of the white cabinet so I will have room for the A-6 whenever I get back to that.

OK, so yes, these are all snap togethers. I got them with the express intent of weathering them and making them look more "adult". I didnt want to mess with a tricky build. I have plenty of Star Wars and other kits that have the heavy building thing going. I did all 5 of these in a couple hours.

So now I will be doing weathering on them in between other projects. I will likely do some detail painting as well here and there. Think I will do the A-wing first.
7. March, 15:46
Torsten
I see, from time to time IMHO we need a fast project, looking forward to more
7. March, 16:35
Donald Dickson II
So the A Wing is weathered. I went heavy as these are not only space but planet side as well. And considering they are resistance fighters, its not like they have wash bays. As usual, found some more stuff to do while looking at the pics. I am also painting the pilot. As provided, he is just plain white plastic. It screams paint me. As near as I can tell, the A Wing pilots had green or khaki flight suits. The X Wing guys are the orange.

Finally found my way here, one of the final roars of the Tomcat GB, isn't it? 🙂 And quite a show, great to see a Vandy build from the AMK box. And it would not be Donald without a bit of "against the stream" swimming by passing on all the AMK wing options and doing a swept one!😉

A job well done, cool stuff 👍

Very cool! Got this and another early Revell tooling 1/48 F-16 in the stash. Looks like pretty decent builds. Unfortunate that that airframe was trucked to Davis-Monthan following a mishap during a Red Flag exercise @ Nellis AFB:

Alrighty. Totally done with weapons on. And may I add I hate Hasegawas weapons kits. The weapons are OK in and of themselves, but half of them don't even fit the launchers in their own kits. Grrrr.

Slavo, I have to agree. The 14 looks so damned good solid black, and the markings for this one are awesome. I wish they would do more of the planes. Or at least push the ones they have done here to the U.S. They have a Cat with a Pumpkin on it that is wicked cool and pretty sure they did a kit of it.

This has now come up a few times, so I figured I would do an album just for it to share with folks. Let me say, this is NOT my idea. I picked it up somewhere along the line.

Just get any old latex house paint. Thin it 50/50. Full strength is TOO thick IMO.

The intake shown is an F-16, but this will work on any intake that is separate from the fuselage at this point. Tape off one end of the tube. Make sure any holes in the tube are covered as well.

Over a paper towel or the like, pour the paint in to fill it up. Let it sit for a moment, then pour it back out. You may need to peel the tape off the other end for it to flow out. Even thinned its gonna be a little much. You will need to tap one end to help the excess out.

This al needs to be done fairly quickly. It will start firming up in minutes. Set it up vertically with the end that is furthest back at the bottom. Any excess build up will be easier to remove without screwing up the look.

The last pic is the end result. Seams gone and nice even white finish. No putty, no trying to sand inside, none of that.
