Hi, Scott.

Doug from Royale Resin said that he's going to release a genuine SH buddy pod "before the Nats".
So, you could save that lovely D-704 for an A-4, A-7 or even an A-1J.
Very few people are going to see the difference between a D-704 and a SH buddy pod, but since you have spent that much on the project already I figured you'd want to know.

Cheers, Stefan.

Thanks for the interest guys...

I know I havn't posted any progress yet,but I am working on it.I'm also currently working on my Strike Eagle,and I've been showing it a little favoritism.I do have the 'Gypsy' cockpit base color painted and I've started painting all of the black panels.But that's it so far.I'll try to kick it up a notch this weekend so I can post something before the new week starts.Stay tuned!

Well here are a few pics to show you that I AM actually working on this.
First off I want to apologize for the crappy pics.I'm not having any luck getting my camera to work for me...
But I can already see I have a couple things I need to fix.

Here's what I got done so far:



The IP's are a mixture of Avionix resin,Eduard,and Mike Grant decals.

Like I stated earlier,I have the cockpit tub basecoat painted and started painting in all the black panels,followed by a light gray Promodeller wash.I went back and removed most of it,which is what makes this stuff so cool.Don't like how it looks? it comes right back off.No harm done...



And the last thing.... I got a couple of these in the mail yesterday.I ended up having to order them from Hannants in London.




I tried to order them direct from Two Mikes,but he was OOS and said he was also OOP.Bummer..... I could've used a couple more.

That's all I got for now.Hopefully I can have to cockpit ready to go in by next weekend.I have a few scratchbuilt items I'm going to throw in for effect,so that might take a bit.

Comments welcome as always!
