Re: JSI Tomcat - Super Detailing???

http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag160/FLIGHTLINEPHOTO/1_18th_F-14B_in_progress/IMG_3013.jpg Since the plastic is very thick on these, I deceided instead of filling the seams that I would sand down the horizontal stabs. One reason because I can get the edges thinner, like mcaulk suggested and tw...

Everyone knows what the JSI "spot cat" looks like so, I'll get right into it. One fuel tank down, one to go. Seams scraped,sanded,filled and, sanded again awaiting primer.

Thanksgiving

I would like to wish everyone and their families a Happy Thanksgiving. I would also ask that you keep those who are still in harms way in your thoughts.

Re: JSI Tomcat - Super Detailing???

Looking really good Mike. Started on my VF-84 conversion to a B model this week. Scraping seams, filling and sanding. Following your conversion closely, you've got alot of great ideas and talent.

Re: BBI Replacement F18 Pilots

Got mine from Bad Cat Toys, $9.99. They took a while to get in there but, they do look good once inside the cockpit. Now I can paint their helmets knowing that they will fit.

Re: JSI Black Knights vs. Spot Cat.

I have both versions and the Black Knights version is WAY better looking. It's a shame the VF-84 version did not have better QC checks before being shipped. The weapons are extremly well done, having loaded the real deals for the Air Force. I could not be happier with the BK version and would love t...

Re: It's OFFICIAL! New pics of the upcoming BBI Pilot Figur

Received an email from BadCat Toys today telling me that my 2 F-18 pilots ( for my Tomcat) have shipped. Looking forward to seeing how they fit in the Cat.

Re: So...what's next for Merit?

My 1/18th wish list ;

A-6E TRAM
F-111E/F
F-15E
A-4E/M

Also hoping that SOMEBODY would make bombs, missles, LANTIRN pods etc. so we could customize our big jets.

Re: JSI spot cat. Broken deal special!

Is this sold yet or what ?? Since you say it's a spotcat I'm assuming this is the VF-84 version.

Re: JSI Tomcat - Super Detailing???

Mike, I've been following your build here as well as other forums, I have to say you do some amazing work !! You have inspired me to finally tackle my Spotcat. I want to do a VF-14 or VF-41 BOMBCAT, in flight, with mine. Problems are lack of decals and ordnance .... still, looking forward to this one.

I would love a set of the F-14 closed nozzles as well. Just getting started on deceiding which way to go on this one. I really want to do a B version but, lack of ordnance is keeping me from getting started. Some one who ownes a VF-154 Cat should cast the new items for us less fortunte who purchased...
