    Ok, stick a fork in this build cause I'm calling it done! I decided against doing a panel wash on this one, because I was too afraid I'd screw up the paint even using an acrylic wash. To be honest, I'm not sure it really needed one anyhow. Looking at the photos, there are a few decals I may treat with Mr. Marksofter to try to take care of some slight silvering, and I do need to fix one of the gear bay door position. But those are minor things that are more repairs than adding to the build. Overall, I'm fairly pleased with how this came out, especially since it's my first (completed) aircraft build and my first extensive bare metal finish. I like the lightly weathered look it's got, and I think it'll make a decent addition to the display case. Thanks to you all for the encouragement and advice!

    Thanks guys! Gil, the panel lines were rescribed on the F-102 (they were raised to begin with). I primed it in black and when I painted the ADC Grey, the black was still showing in the panel lines. The carrier tractors are from Skunk Modelworks.

    I think we need a review of fractions. Fun Fact: The bottom number in any fraction (1/2, 1/100, 1/350, etc.) is called the denominator. Say it with me: dee-nomm-inn-ater. 1. To convert from one scale to another, the rule is: Denominator of the scale you have divided by denominator of the scale you want. So if you have a plan in 1/350 and want to convert it to 1/400, simply divide 350 by 400: 350/400 = 0.875. 2. Now, convert that to a percentage, because just about every copier uses percentage to enlarge or reduce. How do we convert to percentage? Multiply the result obtained in Step 1 by 100: 0.875 x 100 = 87.5%. If the copier you are using does not allow fractions of a per cent, then round up or down at your discretion. Study this. Learn this. There will be a quiz tomorrow. Bring a #2 pencil and your Big Chief tablet to class.

    Yahoo! I'll be there. Five hour drive from most of SoCal. My guess is you will have a huge California presents at the show. Better make space for all the cars!
