Painted, panel washed and decaled! Woot! Maybe 15 more hours since my last post.
The bolt on sections (the strakes on the nose and main body) of the JDAMs are kinda sloppy for me. I was very frustrated that night and just rushed through them. They look fine at arm's length and will mostly be hidden on display anyway.
Up close, you can actually read some of the warnings on the AIM-9L Sidewinders.
I kid you not, one actually says: "Do Not Roll, Tumble or Drop" facepalm :lol:
The color coded stripes on the air-to-air weapons indicate status. Blue (not seen here) indicate an inert weapon for training exercises. Yellow means "active sensors", brown means "combustible". So two brown means "live engine" and "live payload". In training exercises where weapons are fired, you might see yellow for a "live seeker", brown for "live engine" and blue for "won't actually blow anything up".
For bombs with no engine, it's just yellow or blue for will or won't detonate.
Rail launchers and drop tanks. The lines on the tanks aren't me being lazy (God forbid), those are weld lines or assembly joints. This is actually my second set of drop tanks. I didn't like my first attempt so I contacted Revell, had them send me a replacement pair and redid them.
