    My first airbrushed model. for once a model of mine doesn't look so disgusting, like someone threw up on it. (except for that left wing) I'm kinda proud of it. so...yea ^^

    And you should be. If you look closely at WWII pacific aircraft, they are not perfectly painted, beautiful airplanes. They are dirty, scuffed, chipped and almost always looking like they have been powerwashed with paint thinner.

    Your depiction is awesome. One of my most favorites with the white arrow. I did that same one as a kid.

    Bravo, Tebor.

    Looks excellent, and really good, especially seeing as it's your first with an airbrush. My first on looks awful.

    Looks great, sure wish I had all the time u do to spend on modelling... I agree with what Matt said, most of the F4Us in the Pacific were dirty, scruffy crates... Id like to see some real CLOSEUPS of it if u can post some up??? Lets see how ur cockpit skills are Rob....

    Agree with all, especially Matt and Les. And for a first attempt with an airbrush, that's a very good result. Well done Rob.

    oh, and if any y'all were wondering about the landing gear....those 2 panels that go in the front....there was only one in the kit. so I decided "the hell with it" and just not put the front panels on.
