Yes….a Phantom – but it’s the last one for a while

by Craig Abrahamson on October 15, 2017 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

Tamiya’s 1/32nd scale F-4J. And wouldn’t ya know – after I [thought] I was finally finished, THEN I noticed that I forgot to paint the NMF section(s) on the elevators. Dammit! Oh well, that shouldn’t be too difficult to remedy […]

Oh No….Not Another One..!! (addendum)

This is the old (’98) Revell boxing of “Showtime 100” F-4J Mig Ace in 48th scale (which is obviously not the scheme I chose to do). This is quite a difference from the Z-M kits. The fuselage halves were were […]

I can’t help myself….

I got Phantom Brain-Lock I think. Yes….it’s the other 48th scale Z-M F-4. A little easier this time after “gong to school” on the other one just before this. Free hand camo (sorta). Rattle can paint job with some carefully […]

Not another Phantom…!

A quick 2-3 day build followed by another quick set of (indoor) pics – and it unfortunately shows! How does one “weather” a really dark gray airplane? Dunno? Me either apparently. It turned out pretty bad – as is painfully […]

Z-M 48th F-4 Phantom

by Craig Abrahamson on August 23, 2017 in Aviation -- 48 Comments

The term “over-engineered” is often used to describe some manufacturing techniques lately. I can’t really say that this is the case here, but it did seem (at least to me), that Z-M made this kit a little more ‘complicated’ that […]

Hasegawa 48th scale Phantom

by Craig Abrahamson on August 14, 2017 in Uncategorized -- 34 Comments

This was a bagged kit (no instructions/decals) and something I wanted to get outta the way before starting on the two Z-M F-4’s I’ve yet to begin. I didn’t spend a lotta time in detailing and I did absolutely NO […]

Tamiya’s F-4C/D Phantom II (added 7 more pics)

by Craig Abrahamson on July 29, 2017 in Aviation -- 33 Comments

I finally got some time at the bench this past month. I’m planning on taking some better photo’s outside in the sun tomorrow and editing the article in order to add them then. Stay tuned. They’ll be (hopefully) more Phabulous […]

Group Build Entries

Although I didn’t have the time to complete anything new, I wanted to participate in some way to Louis’s Midway group. I hope these reposts “fit the bill”. Thanks for your indulgence in my procrastination.

Merry Christmas Everyone….

Voodoo’s it is….!

by Craig Abrahamson on December 10, 2016 in Aviation -- 33 Comments

The ‘old’ 48th scale Monogram, which, in my mind, still stands the test of time for accuracy, ease of assembly and, especially, price! This one was OOB some years ago and done with (naturally) MM NMF metalizer’s in the rattle […]
