Thanks everyone for the kind words. 

I've had to take a pause from getting this into the paint barn - had a sick pup to take to the vet for emergency surgery (blocked bowel from chewing up his blanket and eating some of it) He's home now and recovering.  Also, both girls are playing soccer now, so evenings are being taken up with that.  Hope to get back to it this weekend.

Primer is on.  Going to let it dry a couple of days and then start applying the Alclad.







I used the Alclad gloss black primer for the base coat, and I've got duraluminum, dark aluminum and white aluminum to try out.

Cool as the other side of my pillow, Mr Jello!

Looks especially menacing in that all black scheme!

I've found a couple spots that need a little attention - my re-scribing wasn't flawless so I'll need to do some SFP (sand, fill and prime) touch ups before the metallic coats can go on.

Yes, it does look cool, hopefully I don't wreck it when I put the Alclad on...

Got any Cobra or Hydra decals?

Sadly, no. That would be an interesting marking scheme, though, wouldn't it?

Looking real nice!!  Gonna put it out there as a F-79C or so?  Sharing some kinship with the earlier P-79 concepts but it's own design?

Phase Two in the paint barn.  (I thought I had taken some photos of Phase One, but apparently not)



Just the dark aluminum to go and then some decals...

I really like the drop tanks. Certainly adds credibility!

Love that NMF too.

Phase Three of Alclad is done.  But now looking her over, I need to go back with the duraluminum and touch it up, plus I may do a couple more panels in white aluminum to add variation.  But here's a couple more photos:
