Revell 1/48th EA-6A Wild Weasel

Well shoot….now that I’ve taken the pictures, I see I have some “tweaking” to do. I can see some mistakes, omissions and common flubs…as usual.
The paint is overall Tamiya gray primer over Tamiya white primer. Some brushed on Future in the decal positions and then some fictitious markings. Mostly.
Home-made ‘tarmac’ bordered by black cardboard under a desk lamp. Used my trusty little Nikon 8800 CoolPix rather than pull out the Canon “Mac-Daddy” behemoth I keep in the gun safe. Close enough for model work, I guess.
Clearly not the best build I’ve done, but I’m pretty close to stickin’ a fork in it and movin’ on. Got a Tamiya 48th scale P-47 Razorback up next and then it’s on to the 3 F4U-1 ‘birdcage” Corsairs. I still got that KittyHawk F-35B, but I’m hopin’ to get all the clumsiness outta the way first – don’t wanna mess that one up.
