Earlier in June I tried to find a Standard C-119 Nose to backdate an Italeri AC-119K

Earlier in June I tried to find a Standard C-119 Nose to backdate an Italeri AC-119K to a G but was unable to find one. My solution was to vacuum form a nose from a Roden C-123 and cut it down to fit the AC-119. Used three vacuum form noses super glued together to re-enforce the thin vacuum. Worked perfectly. Easy solution to backdate the "K" to a "G."

USS John F Kennedy

New Forum Posts - Sat, 07/04/2020 - 14:17
Hey all. This is one of my current builds, the Trumpeter 1/700 USS John F Kennedy. It's a commission build for one of my EMS Chiefs who was a master at arms in the late 90's. Almost have the carrier itself finished and I'm about to start the aircraft. It was a pretty easy build with the exception of the masts. The only thing I don't like is the Jet Blast Deflectors. There's no option to pose them down.
