Well, I gave word not to do any other Italeri kit, but...
I got this kit on scale model competition and I did it as a joy build, but with much, much putty, bad fit, holes...
I finished it in a matter of few days with a little bit [...]
Here's my attempt to build the Revell EA-6A Electric Intruder. I always liked the black tail markings with the white 'CY' and the Playboy bunny used by VMCJ-2 (and later re-designated VMAQ-2). I've had that Revell kit in my stash for quite [...]

This is my first finished build of the new year :); completed on Sunday, Jan.1, it was started in mid-July 2013! At some point, it was relegated to a safe spot and more or less abandoned. I would dust her off from time to time, always [...]
This is my last jet aircraft build I amgoingto make. It seems that I have better luck with WWII aircraft
Fujimi 1/72 Intruder tanker, used kit decals for VA-75, a sometime stablemate of VF-31, on Saratoga with CVW-3.
It needed a lot of filler around the intakes. Two glaring mistakes I made was the off kiltered
