F-4D phantom, Tamiya 1/32
Hello gentlemans, I missed the phantom group build, but here is my result of last months work. I started build with removing protuding panels and re-scribing all panel lines. I improved cockpit with eduards photo-etched parts and perfect brassin seats. I also used resin seamless air-intakes from rhino models. Inner surface of air-intakes was pretty nice but outer surface was little bit coarse and they were generally smaller. One of the big mistakes kit is bad dihedral angle of wingtips. I had to fix these parts by adding plastic profiles to made correct (smaller) angle. Detailed resin exhaust nozzles is also from eduard company. Effect of burnt metal behind nozzles I created by airbrushing different tones of GSI super-metallic iron color and airbrushing some stripes with transparent orange and blue colors. On this aircraft flown Col David O. Williams Jr and 1/Lt James P. Feighny of the 435th TFS, 8th TFW during vietnam war. Armament was used for standart mig hunting. 😀 All armament was used from box except SUU-23 gunpod. It is product from AMS resin. I hope that you will enjoy the model, it was my first model big scale. If you want to see some photos from the build, please tell me. 🙂
