Will do (waiting on the Sun to peak out, if not, I'm going to just go for it sometime in the afternoon)    and many thanks, one and all.  I stoked you all like it!!!  This one was a ton of fun.  :mellow: :mellow: :mellow:

It scratched a couple "itches" as well. For some odd reason I don't have a 10th of US Navy stuff in my stash as I do air force. Not sure how or why but there ya have it...   so I was wanting to get a modern-era (say, vietnam era forward) USN build done and also wanted to build an F-15 for awhile now so they both came together into one tidy package. Some credit is due TallEng for the Wolfpack suggestion which, in my opinion, was where this turned into something much better than what I had initially planned.

Good stuff!!!  Now, USAF F-14A is going to have to come to fruition to sit next to it and whadda ya know, if I don't already have a spare kit for it and even all the stencils and common markings!  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks, Dave!!!  There were a couple times I was worried there at the end. It took one hell of a day of work to make it. Sheesh!  Funny, the Soviet GB was the same... working on that one literally til the last minute. I stopped working on it 11:59, one minute before the deadline. This one was into the final 24 hours...   something about builds of this era.  ;D  :o 

Any how... its all stormy and just getting darker but the sun nearly came out for awhile and I managed some pictures. They're still crappy but a few turned out alright. I'm just not going to have sunny picture of this one I guess!  :o   Oh well.  Truth be told, the three I took last night a pretty decent. I don't care for the surroundings but the subject itself was in focus, etc so I guess It could be worse..

Wow! That's brilliant! Amazing how that two-tone navy scheme really sets the stage.  It's funny how that little IRST makes such a difference, I immediately think tomcat and navy.  Great job  :thumbsup:

That REALLY looks the part Brad, you think 'F-14' right away, and the lack of swing wings only dawns later on.  :thumbsup: ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I know one of the moderators quite well and I can assure everyone that being bone idle he is very unlikely to get his act together to slam the threads closed at the exact deadline...

Thanks!!! That's the sentiment I was getting from a few people on Facebook as well. I'd say mission accomplished!! At first glance, it's a Tomcat.  :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

Here's the funny thing. I got to sitting around internetting and looking up stuff on the Flying Ram and I nearly forgot all about pictures and putting them in the finished builds thread!!  It struck me after lunch though and I got it done.  :o ;D ;D ;D   I wrote up some half-assed description as well. I'm not very good at that part.  :angel: :angel: ;D

Glad you got it finished :thumbsup:
It looks a cracking build especially in those Wolfpack markings.

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

And to think, I nearly didn't bother with it!!  Thanks!!  Nearly didn't bother with the two-tone scheme, either, but tremendously pleased that I decided to go for it even with the extra time it took. 

Glad you got it finished :thumbsup:

Thanks, bud!!  Choice call, there!  Made the whole difference, decidedly. Sure gives "Jolly Rogers" a run for their money in the cool department.
