Hey, y'all, my son and I just finished these two. Took a little over a week, they built up quick. Both are Academy 1.72 kits, Ethan's is the "F" model super bug, and the old man's is a legacy "A+" boxing. (Goin old school, haha). His is air to air, mine has a load out that I saw in a Squadron book; I had to steal a couple of his bombs to make it work. The odd colored fuel tank on the legacy matches what I saw on the box photo of this kit; I think it adds some interest.

Nice builds!

It looks like some odd links have snuck into your post, though.  Anyone else see them?  "moira ghoul" and "where is the closest gas station from my current location"?

Interesting...I use Postimage, too, but I've never seen that.  Did you grab each link one at a time?

I did. I guess they're slipping ads into the links.

Thanks, y'all! It is pretty cool building a couple together, I got to be on both sides of that coin in my life, just enjoying the moments as they come.

Nice looking birds.  As soon as my sons and I got into RC, static/plastic models flew out the window (figuratively Stick out tongue)...for them at least.  Nice time spent with your kid.

Thanks,

John
