ROCN Super Sea Bronco
« on: January 09, 2019, 05:56:18 pm »
Always been a fan of their Trackers. Those turbines, those props, that colour scheme, and those shark mouths.....so why not ? Plus, when you're on the road, with limited resources and lots of time to kill, and every day you can use a 40-50% coupon at Hobby Lobby.....you end up with this ! I had brought a few bits of styrene with me from home, but purchased the rest in Grand Junction, Colorado. Those Testors sets are actually quite nice for the military builder. This kit was built in CO, WY, NE, UT and Ontario, Canada ! Well travelled eh ?

Radar nose from an old Testors 48th scale F-4 bomb.
Base of AAR probe from ECM blister of same.
AAR probe from a Revell Eurofighter Typhoon.
Guns faired over
Props scratched ( see blog )
Landing gear lengthened for in flight look and made removable, so I can take off, do a mission, and return to the carrier ( hey, I like to fly )
Alarm, Sidewinder, LGB, pod, centreline F-16 tank, other tank and markings from kit and various sources





In flight ! lol

Interestingly I discovered that pictures hosted on BotoPhucket which had been unviewable since the hostage situation were now showing.
So I replaced all the links with those to my flickr account as PB is dead to me.
