Well after my endeavours with the F15 Eagle ( which I just finished and will show the ups and downs in that thread in a minute) and finding out that came at about 40 cm… I have re-evaluated and not going to do the academy 1/48 F15 Strike Eagle… It’s to big at the mo …
So, change of scale, I’m now going to do the Hobbyboss 1/72 F14 Tomcat, the B or D version… Depending if one of those has the Jolly Rogers decals and also if the decal sheets have ones for the weapons as well…
Getting ready to start on the Viper in Feb. Washed the parts (ignore the submarine…).
Probably doing this scheme. The build will be something of a prequel/practice for the full equipment kit, which I’ll do in the Misawa AB colors.
I thought you were doing an F16 with floats …
Ha! Nope, family member was. Building the sub he was on.
Ah the rare F-16D Floating Duck
And the trigger is pulled …
1/72, plenty big enough for me
Nice choice!! I’m excited for this one. I love teen series fighters
I do have a an Academy 1/48 Strike Eagle I was going to do … But after the last 48th eagle i did i need to go back to small scale … plus the size issue … they look like nice kits the HobbyBoss ones
Well, I definitely have too much going on at this pont, but the kits I’m working on are on the complicated side. So I might jump into this one with something a little more straightforward:
We’ll see how it goes. While I’ve done a little painting, it’s just the base cockpit gray on both and some black on the T-Bird aircraft. No construction yet.
Both will be out of the box (including decals) with the exception of the Quickboost seats.
The award alone is reason enough to join and finish!
BTW, my stash offers all of them 'teens, decisions decisions…
So got this kit from a buddy with bits to make a B.
I also have the A carrier deck kit. I am thinking I should try to make one for this campaign but I don’t know what to do.
I like the B ‘96 103 for single color scheme. The ‘04 100 scheme with retro yellow tip is cool but so is story of 101 with engine failure on the launch cat.
Anything Jolly Rogers is a winner for me
I get that but which one?
Also found VX-9 Playboy bunny decal sheet.
Jeez, you want me to build it for you as well !!! lol … just kidding dude … I would scrub the engine failure one. Both the final flight and the 96 Santa skull look cool … Im staying with the final flight scheme 04… thats my choice
Is that an option? Let’s be real, it would have a better shot at getting completed on time.
My Pleasure, send the bad boy over and I will get it cracked for you … any scheme you like lol … always happy to help
If it is any help, I’ll be building my Super Hornet as a jolly rogers. Could have our own pirate army
The decals build this tail scheme.
The plane number 103 is lovis.
I think this might work. Time to consult my Tomcat experts now that I have a direction to go.
