The ICEMAN returneth--

I had these SuperScale decals laying around since 2013, decided to put them to good use on my F-35C.

Jaws,

Nice job, It looks remarkable!

Did you Future the canopy? Also, what is the best type of glue to use for clear plastic (i.e. gluing the canopy shut)? I would like to avoid any fogging with clear plastic (sometimes I get it with Testors if not careful enough). Some say use Superglue?

Nice looking model! Weird Tomcat photo.......Fists never flew them, guessing that must have been a special fantasy paint job for TOP GUN (1)?

Thank you!

All I did for the canopy was wash it it with an antibacterial dish soap, air dried, then painted external framework.

The best glue to use on canopies and any clear parts is a white glue, basically school glue.

Thanks!

Yes, Iceman and Sliders Tomcat had the "FIST" marking for Top Gun (1986). I thought of the idea to give Iceman an updated fantasy jet using the C-model. Now if I could only find the VF-1 markings for Maverick's jet.
