Going to attempt to do this old model.

The plastic is nasty hard and brittle. It has those round dimple marks all over it. It is also has a very shiney black finish.



This should be fun

Welcome :-). The cockpit detail is looking really good. What is the brand of the kit? Maybe you can post a picture of the box?

You can see the size of those dimples they are every where.
should have primed the top half before i put the cockpit in it is a bit spitty but glad to see that black go.
think i will use some tin foil to cover up the cockpit and finish the spray.

Thanks.

i will have to get rid of those because they are all sort of raised and the fit is bad.

this came with no water slides so i wil have to get some. Any one know of a good place to buy some i think it is jolly rodgers or something like that. The one with the pirate on the back tails.

i like that one.

Here is just one link that popped up when I googled "1/48 Jolly Rogers decals"

http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Rev5/4201-4300/rev4230-Fightertown-48049/00.shtm

It is a review of the decals from the manufacturer whose link is at the bottom of the article. Never know if the links are still good? or the manufacturer for that matter. If they are still available, you get decals and markings for Five  F-14A  aircraft in the Jolly Roger squadrons. googling the phrase I used above should help you find what you want/need. best wishes!

Thanks Ted i never knew there are so many markings. They look great, i like the faded gray look. Saw a heliocopter in a film called jackel with Bruce Willis that the marines were using and it looked amazing.

Oh Yeah, loads and loads available. the Corsair I have in the current group build is marked with Jolly rogers decals. nothing elaborate for WWII, just the venerable skull & crossbones on the nose[see the box art below]. I ordered a set of decals for a plane I did a while back [Mig29A] and the decal sheet covered 57 planes! for each plane there was the serial number, camo/paint pattern and colors called out, details about where the plane operated and loads of other historical details.



Look up "Tigermeet decals" if you want to see some awesome decal sheets and images of painted up planes!

The faded grey look are "low visibility markings" and are what would be on all the aircraft when on a deployment. Generally one one aircraft per squadron is done up in the full blown colors (CAG bird).

Thank you.

i put the two halves and was surprised at the fit. There is one area with a gap that can filled with plastic.
