Some great progress there Col, its always tricky to get the cockpit colour to match the photo etch I think Eduard always seems slightly off compared to reference photos,  in reality with the effect of light and shadow the cockpit will appear to be several different shades, and even possible maintenance has an effect newly applied paint always differs from aged paint even if it was the same paint used.
Keep up the great work looking forward to seeing how it progress's
Gary

Neat works on the fuselage seams Col ! Blutac is a very useful material, It's odd why manufacturers size their figures differently from one another, I wonder if the pilot is too large or the deck crew too small ? Tug looks like nice little kit too mate, great progress

watching with interest. I have some deck crew figures and equipment, but not using them on my phantom build at this point.

thanks for the comments, going to paint all the figures for the practice and the MD 3 is one of the 80's Mlep so will be painting it white in the 60's and 70's they were yellow i believe, of cause this will not fit in with my early 70's F4 but again good practice for me.

I looked at that deck kit and all the parts, but at the time I had already committed my hobby $$$ to something else. nice set! I have some deck kits to work with but don't know when I will employ them?

Nice touch with the added detail, that looks much better than a decal would Col ! Does your kit give any parts to extend the tug to a long one ? I have learned that the Navy can add different modules to the rear, like a starter unit or fire fighting equipment.

thanks pete, no other parts to kit, but they do other kits like the fire engine, generator ect. thought about using mr surfacer for anti slip and have heard about using sand also thought about using sandpaper cut to size then I saw this on emodels Anti-slip Coating Stickers for Vehicles/Tanks/Aircraft/Ships 352 (AFAC35206) so I will see how this works first

I just had a quick google around after I saw your reply, those stickers look really good ! Nice and thin too, much better than sand or surfacer I reckon

Pete
