Good move mate ! Doing them now won't make them any less boring lol, but you will find that you are a bit more meticulous with them, than if you did them at the end

Hello

Be aware, that the thermal protection was introduced after the Forrestal fire in 1967, if I remember correctly. So if your decal version is before that incident, I think bombs dont have any special coating.

A nice load of bombs to get through there Col ! But once they are done you don't have to worry about them at the end, if you havnt started them already make sure not to fill up the holes for mounting the bombs with surfacer lol I only thought about it on mine just before I covered them up

did someone on here post the tip of shining a strong light through the styrene to locate holes that were accidently covered up? forgot where I saw that? I need to shine a light through my ears to check for brains.

[IMG_00601_zps7c626f12]  started to put the cockpit together used XF-54 which is darker than etch, did start with xtracrylix XA 1131 which was a good match but did not like the finish, more practice with airbrush to use xtracrylix I think.

keep at it. I have struggles with the paint colors each and every time. I put some of the paint on a piece of white styrene and go side by side to match, but something is always off. part of the struggle!! I think you are doing a great job with the PE. its really tough to handle the tiny stuff.

Nice work in the pit Col, xf-54 looks right for the pit colour, eduard have printed the grey very "blue" I think if you matched the etch colour it may have looked too light, great progress mate, will it be seats after the cockpit ?
