FAR Mudhens!
« on: July 04, 2010, 10:28:50 pm »
Well from start to finish it took 111 days or 3 months and 19 days or 2664 hours. Some of the decals silvered but at foot and half -two feet, you can't notice them. And I bitched up the gold tinting on the JASDF bird. I tried for two days and gave up, so it's just clear now.

Here's a list of thing I did to my two girls as well as link to the in-progress threads
Both kits are Revell 1/48 F-15E

Excellent pair of Eagles - nice and clean finish, like they just got out of factory! ;)

Greg,
How much is it to join that knitting club, and do they do long distance learning :unsure:
Absolutely marvellous Steve I must say. I don't know how you managed so much detail in 1/144th scale :rolleyes: :lol:
Cheers
