So far it seems all is going well. I have glossed air intakes and started to put fold wings together.
fit is very bad and loads of sanding will be needed to make look good.



one misile is part of attachment under wings. This is do not want so building my own.

looks like you are making good progress. fit issues? par for the course with older revell /monogram kits IMHO. looks like the missile is shaping up good also.

Sorry, I went by this text that is between your pictures in the previous post on your WIP:

"one misile is part of attachment under wings. This is do not want so building my own."



I guess it must be this?

TACTS pod

The Tactical Aircrew Combat Training System (TACTS) is used to monitor air combat training for later analysis and to provide a detailed report for crew and instructors on the performance during air combat maneuvering training. No longer used by the USN/USMC, since circa 2012.

TACTS Pods were usually Orange for USN / USMC, nose section in Black, often seen with eight White square sections on the nose cover. Pitot tube in bare metal. TACTS Pods were usually Grey for USAF / ANG with two Blue stripes, rest as above etc.





a modelers scratch build:
http://www.militarymodelling.com/forums/postings.asp?th=63614&p=2
His looks like the TACTS, but the official resource [link below] shows that the MARS has the banding and not the TACTS, yet the two pictures immediately are TACTS Pods with the banding......and the top picture is the MRS, and it also has some banding appearance.....sort of confusing if you try to follow the resource page [link below]? I am sure you will sort it out.

Here is a link for modelers like me who have not researched every single ordinance and load out for military aircraft:

Well two gentlemen discussing a pod.

I think it looks more like the item that my Vampirella nurse uses to steal my blood..



[rofl]

I say, with this Patrick Moore monocle I can see Uranus.
What-ho, more tea vicar?

That's all that nurse does. Goes around the wards taking samples for testing.
I get her to use the butterfly needle, the thinnest one she has. I hate needles, I would make a dreadful junkie, and I sympathise with those who have to take jabs every day.
