GRAVES,

WOW!!!!

Sorry for the lateness in replying, but I just joined this forum.

I was the LPO of Corrosion Control in VFA-94. I designed and painted this bird just before our 2008 deployment to Iwakuni, Japan. I must tell you that you did a VERY NICE job!!!!!! I am very impressed with the details. I have a few hundred pictures of us working on 400 and I looked through them and compaired your work to ours. The only noticeable difference is the size of the aircraft.

I do have a question for you. Is this a stencil kit? I actually hand drew the flames on the LEX, lower wings, and horizontal Stabs. (Back was sore for a week!!!) I also masked the orange and black by eyes only. I wanted a true "hot rod" look and wanted a few slight "imperfections" by the lines being off by a 1/4 inch or so. But they were dead on. (Oh well.)

I hope you notice that I have posted this and you get back to me.

Paul
