  8. Greetings First Photo is B&W to kind of set the tone. 1950's era Israeli Mustang between Independence War and Suez Crisis Super Kit, Markings are mostly from Spares Box except the 101 "Angel of Death" emblem that I got on a special sheet from Hannants.

I tried Photos outside with different Backdrops. This is a model of an F-105F from when I was stationed at McConnell AFB in 1973. Simple backdate of the Monogram F-105G. I added Metal Landing Gear and Master Pitot both good additions I used Uschi Powders on the Dive Brake Exhaust Petals Paints were a collection of "What I Had" Gunze Dark Green, Testors Acrylic Lighter Green, Vallejo Brown and Humbrol Gray This is a great classic model kit I still have a few items to add,(F.O.D. covers) Thanks for Viewing Bill

  16. For the Columbus Convention I posted a room I had free Up. I posted on Hyperscale and IPMS and got somebody who needed a room. Just changed the name on the reservation. If you cancel with hotel it is open season on the room and nobody knows it is available. Bill
  17. Greetings I have used Alclad "a Lot" . I have had Tape lift metal finish and look like tape residue left behind. I have used SNJ buffing powder to "Repair" the finish. The best method of masking was to put a coat of Alclad Clear Coat then Mask. I use Yellow Frog Painters Tape..which is like a low tack Tamiya tape. My Two cents Bill
  18. Gil That is one very nice F-14. Enjoy the challenges of the Monogram kit( 30 Years Old??) Cheers Bill
