some updates in 2016... sorry guys for being absent for so long. I had updated some progress in my FB. Here it goes...
briefly, I started building the F/A-18C with the kit wing folded mechanism from Hasegawa kit. I decided to built "Fist of the fleet" and "Stingers" both CAG bird. I received my E-2C hawkeye (Kinetic kit no:K48013) thru mail order. But first let me show you the progress of the A-6E and EA-6B...
|Prowler received paint job and decals|
|Ready for weathering...|
|Raw umber oil paint wash|
|after wipes and retouched... Prowler received dusting coat to tone down the weathering effect....|
|side by side... Intruder and Prowler|
|Intruder received basic stencils... I don't have CAG decal for the Intruder as matter in fact I'm thinking of painted it on . No after market decal available for "line a/c" sheesh!|
