Hey Plastic B.

This looks great and thanks for the step by step !!!

Your Mustang looks a little heavy for my taste.

Nothing against your skills just a little heavy for my personal taste.

Very nice. 8) In my opinion "Eileen" is one of the best looking Thunderbolt schemes 21st Century made, and your weathering has made a great looking bird even better.

Great job of weathering, plasticboy.

Subtle, but noticeable.

The way it should be done, IMO.

Looks 8)

Nice job on the model. Frank was my father and Eileen was my mother. They would both be proud of your recreation.
