    Just finished up my group build No.16. The Vimy is done. I am waiting for the next group build to come up while waiting I will start this build another card kit this the Hobby Model Republic F-105 Thunderchief aka The Thud. I seen a lot of these during the Vietnam war dropping napalm right and left on the NVA, Whew... I can still smell the napalm not like victory but the stench is unforgettable..I am starting the build as I type out this post. Later this evening I will post some update pix. Here is a sneak preview of whats shaking.

    I don't know about that... with all those compound curves? In flippin paper? I'm still utterly amazed.

    Card modelers witnessing plastic kits come to popularity back in the day must have had the same reaction that I had as a plastic modeller witnessing the Lego models take over my genre. Utter disgust with those young faddish whipper snappers (my actual utterances are not publishable).

    Here is a update build report on the wild Weasel. Quite different then the Vimy I dont build very many jets I am primarly a prop man like most fellas But then this aircraft has its ri9ght in History.. Durring my hitch in the Navy I use to see these Thuds Zooming out of the wild blue yonder prepareing for a low level bomb laydown Napom. These planes were the B-17s of the cold war take what ever beating they can take anf give charlie in return pure Hell.. As to the build going very smoothly I made one mistake I sprayed on some Krylon clear to make the paper more applyable in handeling faded out the dark green must have been a chemical reaction to the clear varnish spray. It wont look right if I leave the rest of the casrdstock alone so I may as well continmue on the spray but it dont take away the build There was fit issye with skin No. 3 it was a tad to small to jpoin the adjaceing skin but i mad it wor5k i let the skins dry over night this useing a hot spoon I burnished out5 the seam and it smoothed it out like it never happen ., This a proble at times not very much but it happens you will run acroos fit problems like that of plastic there is a trick to it.. when all is well I constructed the pilots compartment there wasn,t very much to it lacking alot of detail i am not going through the process of super detailing it out then what the kit has offered, So i will build it the way the kit has it it is what it is..But still looks good. Here is the update build report for the night more tomorrow.
