Mustang: the "Cadillac of the skies", as the boy (Jim?) said in "Empire of the Sun". 🙂 Good model, Ratch!

The Mustang looks a nice kit. I'd be inclined to build it as the box art. The decal set looks interesting too.

I'm really pleased with how the Frog Jug's gone together. Today I started applying the stencils.

A very nice pair of Thunderbolts, Ratch. The nose art is very interesting, I must say. I prefer the bubble canopy over the Razorback, but that's a personal choice: both are excellent painted and built.

A little bit of sticking of Miss Miami today

Today I hit a bit of trouble with Revell Aqua 36 364 Silk Leaf Green
DSC_0003 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr
it was thick in the pot, so I added some of Revell's own thinner and a couple of drops of Winsor & Newton Acrylic Flow Improver

it quickly turned into a gloopy, unusable mess 😡 Into the bin it went 😈
