1/144th F-4 Phantom
August 20, 2013 in Aviation
Two things I rarely (if ever) do….1) 1/144th scale and 2) brush paint a model. On a whim, I recently ordered this little Academy kit when stocking up on some paints, adhesives, etc.
This was a one-day build – as is most probably evident – but it was a fun little “break” from the usual fare. I included the .223 round only to provide some perspective. And I used the Canon to take the pics (the Nikon doesn’t take close-ups quite so well). I probably could have added some extra detail(s) here and there, but then it would’ve become another “model” rather than what it is – a toy to pass some time.
