Excellent work, Zvezda!  Very convincing weathering!  It's a very attractive aircraft!

Front page is updated with the finish photo.  Thanks for being part of the GB.  It's a pleasure to see your work.

Hopefully, we'll pass through "our own troubled times" quickly and safely!

Great work Zvezda, you nailed it!

The Hellcat drop tank repair is complete. It's not perfect but applying the 3ft rule, I think it passes. Heck, with my bad eyes, it passes from 1 foot Wink

The Jug and Cat are ready for primer...

and with primer (Model Master Aircraft grey) applied...

I have a few areas that need addressed and given some TLC before painting. Speaking of paint, for the Hellcat I'm going with the tri-color scheme and Techmod decals...

for the Jug, NMF color/paint and these decals...

Specifically I'm going with...

The only change i'm planning on making is adding the partial invasion stripes under the fuselage belly (as in the middle pic).

Nice fix on the drop tank, Mark.  Looks very good in the close-up photo.

A couple of fine looking planes, too.  You've chose some very colorful colors and markings.
