Posts I've Made
Today, 04:39 AMEXCELLENT! One of my favorite modelers doing a future build! Your work (and photography) is also excellent, so keep it coming so that I have another reference, although I'll be doing the Israeli version when the time comes.
Jesse, I don't have the decals you mention, but I do have a few Two Bob's decals (and others) kicking around that might be of some use, so just email me if you need something specific.
Today, 04:23 AMThanks a lot guys. I really didn't expect much in the way of a response the second time around, but it's still nice to have some "Attaboys". What I really want to do is archive one of my favorite builds properly, just in case somebody looks up the Canadian CF-18 in the future. My last attempt was fairly weak, photographically speaking.
Speaking of the CF-18, I was at Cold Lake almost one year ago for "Maple Flag", which is the Canuck version of "Red Flag" at Nellis in the USA. I have a "Trip Report" here:
Maple Flag 2012
Getting up close and personal to the CF-18's was very cool, ancient or not. These old birds still scream!
Today, 02:43 AMI also apologize for my last comment on your P-51. It was not my intention to try and get you to change anything. Just something I noticed and wanted to comment on. Outstanding progress so far.
No sweat Josh- I don't really remember what you said. I'm getting a thicker and thicker skin through time, so I'm sure I didn't even notice a critique of any kind. Having said that, if folks see a problem like Billb pointed out earlier, please speak up! I know squat about A-10's, other than what I see in pics, so I appreciate the feedback.
The front gear modifications continue, which are HUGE! I just hope it will all be worth it....

Yesterday, 01:17 AMLooks good!
Check your references on the yellow handles at the front of the seat though. All the pics I found have a blanking plate that stops you being able to see straight through the handhold (& assumedly getting things caught through it)
Thanks for that feedback Sir! It would appear in your first pic, the "blanking plates" have been rotated forward, allowing a clear view through the handle on the left hand side. I'll bet you are right though, so it's any easy "fix" to add same, which I will do.
