Re: New F-18 project anyone?

I'm actually working on an F-18. Might be a little hard to copy using plastic film covering though. Looks Awesome!

Re: New F-18 project anyone?

I don't like the new scheme, I think it looks bland, and the curvy lines do nothing to enhance the jet, Canada has had some of the most amazing paint schemes on jets ever, this is not one of them IMO

Re: New F-18 project anyone?

Hey, at least those of us without a lot of painting experience have a shred of a chance to duplicate this one... This one looks pretty doable with some relatively close attention paid to masking.

rattle rattle rattle, spray, rattle rattle rattle...


PS: Ed, I need to call you about getting a few wheels if you have stock (Trim 83mm, mains only...)

Hey Kelly,

No 83mm wheels in stock right yet. 55-78, and 88 but no 83. Ed's putting another Trim order in before the weekend, so he'll give you a ring when he gets in a bit later. Running an errand this evening.
