O: That looks awesome! The paint fading looks cool and I love the mud in the tires. The Viper looks cool, sorry wish I could help but I don't know squat about modern jets.

Thanks Steve. Looks like my other projects are going to have to wait just a wee bit longer. I got these in the mail today:

 

Now that I have these parts in hand, I'm going to wrap up my Lightning. Hopefully I'll have some photos of my finished project to share by Sunday.

Wish me luck!

OK Gamera, you asked for it! Here they are!

 

And a few more of my finished Lightning...

 

Thanks for running this GB Steve. You can use this photo for the main page: 

 

Hopefully I'll be able to get another submission done before the GB ends. Thanks for the fun, gang!

Cheers!

Hey gang, I'm really glad you enjoyed my Lightning. I'm back in the mix with my F-16 B/Dish Fighting Falcon.

Started out with getting the cockpits and seats built up.

A problem was, these resin seats did not have the canopy breakers that the 1:1 ACES seats have.

So, I had to improvise. I cut the breakers from the kit's plastic seats and glued them onto the resin ones.

Not perfect but under some paint and the closed canopy, they'll pass muster.

I was able to get the fuselage halves and wings slapped together.

After dealing with a some seams, I glued the canopy on, too.

 

That's where things are as of now. Hopefully I'll be able to post some more progress soon. Stay tuned! In the mean time, keep up all the great work!

I've been working on my Orion as life permits. The heat shield was a bit of work, which took a few rounds of masking and painting shades of tan.

After getting the tans/browns in a nice pattern, I top coated it with tan.

I also foiled the large tanks I'll put into the service module and mounted them on the inner structure. The main engine is painted as well, along with the main body of the service module and the crew capsule. Those still need to be detailed of course. But I'm on to working on the service module's crew capsule mount next.

O & BL: Those look awesome guys!!! 

I stalled out a bit on my P-38 since the PE seatbelts I had vanished. No idea where they went. I ordered a new set of them and they got here today so hopefully I'll get to them sometime this week.

I've been working on my service module a bit. I put the little tanks on my command module adapter and put some foil on them.

I've also been working on the lower part of the service module:

I'm hoping to get the service module put together tomorrow and then maybe make some progress on the command module.

I got the main parts of the service module together. Looks a little more like something now.

Gotta put on the solar arrays and work on the high gain antenna next!

I got the solar arrays put on the service module:

I also got the antenna put together.

I'll be able to finish up the service module soon and get cracking again on the command module.

BL> An amazing piece of work!  If it wasn't a "garage kit", I would wonder who made it.  Smile

PS> I just noticed the Testors bottle next to it.  It's smaller than I thought!

No worries Gam. I'm kinda outta the business for the time while I move and find a job and house. 

BL, I love that gold foil work

Ortiz> Forgive me for being late, but that's a splendid P-38!  Sometimes when your away from building for awhile, you miss things.  Well done!  And the F-16 is coming along bueno!

I attached the antenna to the service module. This pretty much finishes up the service module!

And here it is on the groovy stand I printed out but haven't finished yet:

Now for more work on the command module.

I did some work on the command module:

Here it is with the heat shield and docking adapter on:

On top of the service module:

Last thing to do is to paint the stand, and it will be all done!

Looks awesome BL!!! Great to see her almost done! 

 

The seatbelts came last week and I got them on the seats and the seats in the P-38. I'm finishing up the gunsight right now- Tamiya put a pile of detail in there and I'm going a bit slow since I can only do a step, let it dry, move on to the next step and let it dry etc.
