Beatiful kit i think vallue for money.

Exceptional fitting with very little amount of putty.

Attention needs on the wheel bay because you have to put them before you close the wings an you have to be careful to be straight.

The colours i used are the gunze and finally winsor varnish.

The extra is the eduard cockpit i put but i think the kit does not need it too much.

Off course you will need at least one set of seatbelts because the kit does not have nothing.

Plenty variety of arming the plane and you can make a C or D because all the stuff you need are in the kit.

Thank you i hope you like it.

  1. I am not a modern jet guy but I do love the F-4 and yours looks great. Very nice build and finish and I really love seeing a plane loaded down with ordinance. Nice work.

    • Thank you very much for your kind words my friend! I am in love with the wwii but the modern jet and especially the phantom is a part of history. Especially in Greece we love them. Thank you again

  2. I agree with Walt B on all points. Really excellent work on this model.

  3. The F-4 on the markings of either the Jolly Roger's or VF 111's Sundowners are always going to look good. This is a good kit and you made her sparkle like a diamond. Well done!

  4. Looks great. I love the contrast with the nosecone semigloss and the Matt. Loads of great detail. Nice one.

  5. Really nice build. Hard not to like a phantom with a skull and crossbones.

  6. That's a really nice model, Διονύση, with a lot of quality work put into it. Beautiful cockpit, painting and weathering. I love the scheme you chose.
    All the best!

  7. I love Phantoms, and you made a beauty out of this one! Paintwork is again fantastic. Love it!

  8. Great job! Nice cockpit detail!

  9. Excellent work on beatiful plane!
    I have Winsor varnish, but I haven't used it yet. How long You have to wait fpr it to be completely dry?

    • Thank you very much my friend. I wait 1-2 hours before completely dry (60% thinner - 40% varnish) for wash and 40 minutes to lay another hand if i want. I work with leveling thinner.

  10. Good Job, i like it
