Hobby Boss 48th FJ-4 Fury

The kit went together fairly well, albeit my inept modeling skills tried to make it more difficult than it should’ve been.
And wouldn’t ya know, AFTER (of course) I posted the pics, I see the pitot tube has disappeared. Plus…..I thought it odd that the refueling probe was on the port side. I’ve always seen ’em on the right wing. AND it would seem I need either more light at the bench or go take the pics outdoors…..but it’s gawd awful hot out there. 🙁
The paint/decal instructions called for a gray/white paint scheme, but… true to form… I choose a different motif – something I thought looked “better”, even though I suppose it would have to be classified as a ‘what-if” now (but I don’t care). I also opted to NOT attach anything to the under-wing pylons. Again…I thought it looked better without ’em.
Nose weight was achieved by using #8 bird-shot poured down existing area(s) and held in place with modeling clay.
Finally, I wanna thank Frank Cronin for this kit (and others)…..the check’s in the mail, Frank. 🙂
