VA-36 "ROADRUNNERS" CVW-8 - CVN-71 USS Theodore Roosevelt - Gulf War Intruder

I built this kit OOB, took me a long time to finish this one.  I did reposition the flaps and slats and added Hasegawa pilot figures and rescribe the upper visible section of the Intruder.

I was thinking of doing a flight deck diorama with it, but I haven't be able to locate the Verlinden carrier deck with catapult as it was oop.  I'm too lazy to scratch built one.

Decals came from Carpena (Thanks to Julian Hales for it).  Rockeyes came for e kit & HARMS is Hasegawa.  Weathering was done using pastel and oil wash.  I guess the Intruder tended to be very dirty onboard.  I enjoy finishing it, next time I would attempt to build another one with then wings folded & a Black Box set for my other Intruder, but that's another story, another time.
Enjoy
