Well I am back after a week and a half stay out on the Truman for a CQ Det for our students here at Kingsville. What a ride it was the first couple of days with that hurricane out and about. Yehawwww!! Well atleast we didn't have Russian subs playing cat and mouse with us like the CQ I worked last month out on the Carl Vincent!!! What the heck the cat shot makes it all worth it. Here are a couple of images I took on the morning right before FOD walk on the last day out!



I spent a little time on the Fury once I got back. I opted not to stencil it for I was hesitant about using those old decals off the sheet. I figure this isn't really an accurate Fj-3 so I will just have some fun with it, and it will give the general look of the Fury for my Jolly Rogers Lineage build. Here is where I am at after my last post in which I had to totally strip off all of the paint and re-do it. I am pretty happy with the results and like the new look with the nice gloss finish!



Hopefuly I will have this one done soon so that I can get back on that -4 Corsair. Thanks for looking.

Not very accurate, but a fun kit with decent fit, and nice surface detail.

... That finish looks fantastic!

So do the markings!

Can't wait to see her done. I may have to break mine out and start it...
