Very nice! One of, if not my actual favourite jets! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

When I was active duty we used to have some real fun with the Arizona ANG SLUFs out on the range. The one pilot could hit a target with a bomb dropped in a turn!

I do like the F-8 and A-7, and she looks workmanlike in those colours. Very smooth finish. I know I built a few back in the day...always preferred the Fujimi Tomcat too.  :thumbsup:


Excellent! Love the idea and esp. the colors/livery. The fin flash/emblem is a nice detail, too.  :thumbsup:

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Very nice, I like the NATO/lichen green for a refreshing change.

I do like the idea of Brit Corsairs, I did a Gulf one in pink some years back: 

I've got thinking about a Royal Navy one now, hmmm...
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's 4 Sqdn., one of my Dad's old units.  ;D

Most of their Harriers carried the same fin flash.

Mind you, they flew Audaxes and  Lysanders when Dad was on 4.  ;D

Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

Looks good in that one overall colour, nice one Scoot  :thumbsup:
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Oh I like the look of that.  :thumbsup:

Bit under armed for an A-7 isnt it?  ;D ;D ;D ;D
I always hope for the best.
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

One of several sorties over the range, perhaps?
