Ok fellas, I finally managed to get started on one of what I hope will be 2 or 3 enrtires for the madness.

As of yesterday afternoon I found myself with nothing to do, so I grabbed my modellin bag & rummaged untill I found this 1/100 Revell F-20 kit.



Once I completed the normal "aftermarket" round up, I started construction sometime around 1800 lastnite.



And here she is this morning, I've added the new burner can (from a Testors F-18). I *plan* on having her done by tomorrow morning.

Looks like you chose the right kit for a quick build!  :thumbsup:

He's almost as obsessed as you are with toilets! :P  :D  :P

Always like your F-20's Shas, looking forward to see what decals you slap on her!
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.

Got the base coat on, hoping to get some camo painted while I'm in the mist of turning my car into a sardine can on wheels.


Pics sometime tomorrow as my dial up doesnt like uploads.

After spending a couple hrs haulin' the stuff up to my new abode & getting arranged, I set out to start the camo process. I had other plans, but I guess I was led by the spirit & here's what turned out (I'm quite pleased  ^_^ )





Should make even more progress tomorrow.

As of 10 sec. ago, this biach is done:







"F-20 Tigershark GG1001 was resplended in a striking 2-tone gray camo with full color markings for weapons trials during the summer of 1983, after it was the hit of that year's Paris Air Salon. It is seen here carrying a full warload of four Mk.82 low-drag bombs, a pair of inert AIM-120 AMRAAMs, and a pair of AIM-9J Sidewinders."


Now on to Vic 207. . .
