This is my first submission to
ARC. There were alot of firsts for me on this model, first time I rescribed
anything, first attempt at airbrushing, and first attempt at scratchbuilding
anything. The kit went together fairly easily, only with minor problems lining
up the front part of the fuselage halves.

I built it OOB, but
tried using some 20 year old Micro Scale decals.....had problems. So as you can
see the markings aren't in accurate places, but that is the result of my decals
failing me half way through the decaling process. I scratchbuilt the ACMI pod on
the left wing, and the seeker cover on the right wing. I liked adding the intake
and exhaust covers because it added color to an already beautiful aircraft (in
my opinion). The photos were taken in my kitchen, and I'm not very happy with
the way they turned out. I hope you enjoyed reading my article about a plane I
really enjoyed building!
