Working on VF-51 from 1972. These are WIP for the first aircraft while i tinker. I cannot do a shear on the modex which is only a minor bugbear. I need to back and look at the lettering on the eagle as well to see if I can improve the contrast

The air wing decal needs a new one as well as this is from an earlier time frame.

The Eagle needs a bit of re-sizing so I can get the VF-51 numbers on and my hand isn't steady enough to do the black nose in the half and half.

Dull cote hasn't been applied to finish (not sure but this one has a twin TER from the a-10 added as well to let me differentiate between close escort and cap flights.

More research needed to see if the air wing letters appear on the right wing as well.

Wow just wow. I'm not sure if your stuff inspires or depresses me! ;-p

You paint well better than me. I just stick decals on things :)

With a dusting of dull vote. Can't find any references with wing identifiers so this will do for now
