Started working on the cab walls. Got 2 done then realized I needed to spray more parts. So not much progress. A pic of everything to date.
So, almost at the point where I put the roof on. Some pics of the interior to remember it by. *sigh*
Getting closer to the most dreaded part. The tracks.
nice progress and nice result.
Really cool project. Thanks for sharing!
👀 Interesting project. Watching.

OK, so I saw that the GB is the Phantom. I can NOT pass up a Phantom build. Plus its been a while since I did one. So after staring at the dozen or so kits I have, it came down to the 1/32 Tamiya C, or the Good Morning Danang Eduard boxing of the 1/48 Academy B. I went with the Academy because I have never done a Navy/Marine Phantom. Always been USAF. Now I know everyone and their mother has done the Sundowners, but *I* have not. So there ya go.
My mother did a Jolly Roger, not a Sundowner 😉
Serg, LOL. I haven't done one of those either.
Awesome my absolutely favorite scheme! Looking forward to this one 👍!
Nicely done mate 👍
Very well done! I like the weathering.
Thank you sirs!
I was totally winging it on the weathering. My best guess based on a couple black and white photos from the war. I have no clue where these things leaked oil or any of that. Glad you like it!!! 🙂
Very nice 👍
Thank you Roland. 🙂

Well done indeed 👍
Thank you gentlemen. 🙂
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?
Really nice 👍 Inflight looks great!

Nice work on the distressed paint effects Donald! 👍

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.
I like the plane that looks like a remote control, very realistic. 😛 and sweet Goodwill grab!
Chris, a very secret and not well known project involving a reverse engineered chameleon circuit.
When you finally run out of shelf space, go up!

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.
I see, from time to time IMHO we need a fast project, looking forward to more
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.
