    Hornet Model show

    Seems there was a model show on board today with models covering the whole gamut. Also some sellers of older boxed models for what looked like decent prices.

    Note the F-14 I put up first. I made a comment to myself that the weathering was over done. Someone heard me and said that it wasn't I tried to point out what was wrong. Every panel line visible as though dirty. Panels lighter in the middle and not weathered uniformly if facing the sun such as the top surface. Our flight deck was closed today due to the heavy smoke in the Bay Area but I took the guy up into the Island. Got out on O5 and pointed at our F-14 which has gone untouched since 2000. No panel lines visible. Planes didn't have plane captains for no reason. Panel lines on 1/48 could be seen when you can't make out the real ones. Top surface color was 100% uniform and not splotchy. Case closed.
