Thanks Logan  :thumbsup:
I wanted to get more done this weekend but .... other things happened. PS3 + Just Cause 2 = little modeling time!


Until later,

Mossie, staggering in with case of cheap beer, walking into foot stool, glaring at it like it's it's fault, then sitting down heavilly in chair.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

That AGM-148 looks kinda like the "Blue Ferret" from the movie Stealth, Not bad dude she looks like a winner!

Thanks again everybody!  :thumbsup:

Lovely :wub:  But how do you do it so fast? :blink:

Revell's F-15E kit (I think) is best kit revell makes. I too was surprised just how fast it came together. Most of the joints and seams don't need much work to clean up. My biggest seam I had to clean up was where the outer wings met the main wing. Even that, all I did to fix it was filled it with super glue and rescribed a few lines. The kit seems to fall together. I would suggest this kit anyone. Even though have to finish this first, I already got plans for my next one.  :wub:

That Greek Eagle looks fantastic.  :wub:

That Japanese F-15E is all fine and dandy, but didn't you want to build a Japanese F-105G first?  :wacko: I believe you said something in that direction in the whif thread over on ARC quite some time ago.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Thanks Moritz :thumbsup:
About the Japanese F-105G.... I know, I know. I got buried out on my IAF A-10I and do not want to start another long term build now. I still want to build it but when I do I will rescribe the whole model and right not I just don't feel like doing that now. Plus the F-15E is a much easier build. I just have to finish this one first.

I still don't know which one I want to build. Got another 12 or so more profiles to do! :blink:

Well, this week I got the main part of the paint work done. There was a lot of little areas that needed to touched up. It did not help that the light sea gray was so thin I could not use any tape to mask it off. So I painted the whole top camo pattern then shot a coat of future to seal it. Let it dry for a day, now I could use tape to mask for the bottom. Once painted, I gave the bottom a coat of future to protect the paint for scratches and fingerprints. I want to get her on her legs soon and start up on all the little details.
