FG.1[F-4K] 892 NAS,HMS Ark Royal,1974-75, Airfix 1/72.
After enjoying building Airfix's 1/72 DB Defiant, I was all set to tackle the F-4K. either my skill set is diminishing or maybe I should give it up. This build was a struggle for me almost all the way. It is a well engineered kit, great decals, and many build choices, But some how I just could not get out of my own way. I had fit problems around the cockpit and some other areas, probably self induced, and the too light a shade of gray. I should have searched for a Fujimi on the net, maybe it would have been less fiddly.
