Just thought I'd start this blog to explore the settings for this section.  It's a work in progress.  Oh, and I'll post up my thoughts on Whiffery as well.

You can lock your blog so that only you can post (mind you, admins can still make changes if you've been cheeky).  You can do that by clicking on "Additional Options" (to the left, below the text box), and checking on "Lock this topic."  You can still post since you're the originator of the blog.  You can unlock it by going back to said options and unchecking the box.

Current ideas:

F/FB-14.  Australian Tomcats with air-to-ground capability for Aussierama.  What if Australia went with the F-14 instead of the F-111?  The RAAF bought a fighter/interceptor version and a fighter/bomber version.  I think I will do one with 1970's markings and perhaps one close to retirement.

MiG-23K "Tomcatski" - Looks like an F-14 and MiG-23 squished together.  Long-term project.  Most bits have been obtained.

Well, I finally started on my FB-14 this weekend.  Nothing too exciting, started painting the cockpit.  Will be slapping on GBU-15 and Pave Tack pod for this one.

That reminds me.........................Need to cast up the resin bits you asked me about
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Slowly easing my way back. Spent the past year and a half dealing with work and gotten to the point of not wanting to be indoors too much, so I did some outdoor hobbies. The bug has bitten again and I'm ready! Now, I'm just trying to decide what to build.

Yeah Toms got his mojo back  :thumbsup:

As to what to build try something new and straight forward to get you in the mood or see what grabs you from the stash see what takes your fancy

The FB-14 Bombcat still sounds interesting. Look what happened to the F-15 when it got turned into the Strike Eagle!
