Its been a while since I uploaded, but the Skyray project is coming along nicely. I have completed all major assemblies, ordnance, and small bits. Decals have been placed and in progress of weathering.

Really nice build so far. 👍
Is that a pitot tube on a fuel tank?

John
The Skyray did not have an inflight refueling capability, so a refueling probe from an A-4 Skyhawk was grafted to the fuel tank to solve the problem.

No worries - I appreciate the comments.

I had the project on hold while I waited for paint masks to arrive. My copy of the Skyray did not have crisp canopy frame molding lines, so traditional tape masking was becoming a real pain. I used Montex masks and they worked great.

It is always satisfying completing a build. The Skyray is one of my favorite early jets and I am happy to add it to my display shelf. I will put together a completed album to show off the final product.
