COD on deck!
Well she’s finally done. I realized I started her last July! Next I think a Tamiya kit before diving into my F-4B for the Phantom group build, I need a shake and bake! So mods included, detailing the cockpit to look like a C-2, rebuilding the main entrance steps, complete rebuild of the nacelle scoops, lots of scratch building and detailing all along the way including thermoforming clear wing tip lenses. You can’t really make out the light green glow in the dark prop tips, but that was a challenge getting the color right. Markings are from the kit, and from a former COD crewman who printed me some decals, (where the names came from, it is pretty cool having a model with my name on it!) as well as the spares box. A full breakdown blow by blow has been described in my iModeler blog so I won’t re-hash all of it here. Last picture is where she sits with my VRC 30 memorabilia, and she is dedicated to my Det, the Det 3 Crusaders and our 9 month adventure to the Middle East.
