    Okay im a 1/48 sometimes 32 person depending on thr subject.
    But after the voodoo i think now i like the 72 scale jets too they are in decent size for me. So ive decided to build few more of them starting with this phantom in one of my favorite schemes the sundowners 🙂

    Main assembly is done i was working on the fit issues for the last few days.
    Primed it with mr.surfacer 1200 underside and tail fin was sprayed with flat white top side was sorayed with tire black for the black baseing but the surface was not perfectly smooth so i sanded it with 1000 grit sand paper it lifted some paint ill soray it again after maskşng the fin and underside. Landing gear pylons droptanks etc. I wil build paint en weather adter i finish painting the model so they are still on sprues. The white painted parts still wont look ok to my eye so tomarrow ill polish them and apply another coat of white.

    Any minute now you’ll have Robert and Craig here telling you how great this is, and they’ll be right. This is great work.

  • david leigh-smith said 3 months ago:

    Looks terrific to me. Keep working at it and you’ll get exactly where you want to, Adilcan. And tell me, is that Japanese whisky on the bench or just a bottle you are using for other stuff?

  • Adilcan Topgül said 3 months ago:

    Once it was, Nikka blend absolutely beautiful whiskey another thing that Japans do right but now it has enamel thinner in it

  • david leigh-smith said 3 months ago:

    The cockpit is superb and the way you are prepping the surfaces tells the story of a modeler with very high standards.

    I thought the Mikka bottle contents were a little pale!

  • Adilcan Topgül said 3 months ago:

  • Adilcan Topgül said 3 months ago:

    But glad you liked it

  • david leigh-smith said 3 months ago:

    Yes, I know – just using ‘brush as short for ‘airbrush’.

  • Adilcan Topgül said 3 months ago:

    Oh i get your point David.
    The main paint work is done just need to buff the metallic parts and spray the clearcoat to prepare it for the decals. Also metallic parts need touch up here and there but ill do it tomarrow
