Hi folks!

Latest from this side of the Atlantic. Probably the last one for a while too, as the Mrs, the kids and I are moving to a new house in a few weeks.

CCIP, Sniper and GBU-38 from Shull24, decals from Afterburner Decals, CVER and AIM-9X from Hasegawa F/A-18 kit. AIM-120C from Revell, "seamless" intake from Meteor.

Hope the photos come out OK, just got a brand new Kodak M873 that I am getting familiar with :wink: .

Hope you like it - comments are welcome :D !

Congrats mate, Good Work.

Cheers.

It might interest you to know that 91-0464 (also known as "Poor Sick Whore") was originally assigned to the 23d FS, but it went to the 22nd after we lost 90-0829 on Friday the 13th of January 1995. We needed another station wagon and the 23rd carefully chose 464 to replace it. That jet was a maintenance pig, hence the nickname "Poor Sick Whore".

I was in the 22nd from 1994-1996. Great job on the model.

I am sorry to say that I was not the one to come up with that nickname! The first time I heard it I almost fell out of the Expediter truck.

I may be trippin, but long canopy Vipers have a certain look to them. I'm starting to like the big spines too. ANy models with that, like Isreali Blk 50 or UAE Blk 60?

That model looks sweet. I crewed that jet for two years, it didn't break as often as people though. Does it still have the lightning strike scar on the radome still?

Not that it matters... 829 was not a bus.. nor did it go anywhere.

Nice Model. I must say that this is one of the best models that I have seen. The pieces are formed and fit with an amazing amount of precision and this turned out to be a beautiful model. That really shows the amount of time you will spend making the model I would recommend this to anybody.
