Make It Shine - Part I

Having had to put aside modelling for a few months due to major landscape work on a new house I finally found some time to hit the workbench again. I decided to try a new technique and sprayed the whole model with a clear gloss before applying the decals. I am hoping that this will improve the application of the decals and make them look more natural.

A Birthday Gift

For Casey's 6th birthday I got him a Revell SnapTite F-14 Tomcat. This should be a nice project to work on together during the summer holidays. Interesting side note, when looking at the box I noticed it had the U.S.S. Midway in the background with F-14's on the deck. Midway never carried F-14's although I have read that some have landed/taken off for emergency reasons only.. This reminds me, I really got to get the Midway kit complete!
