Hey Thomas it is looking really good but I am curious back when your fuselage broke on you did the seam come apart? I am curious as to what glue you used cause normally with a real stubborn fuselage and I have had that happen to me back in the day ill either use tamiy's extra thin cement on in worse case ill break out the FLEX-I-File Plastic weld fluid without the applicator it can be some messy stuff but guaranteed to glue a seam together and it wont come apart.

Hey Joe,

I put in styrene stripes to get the seamline straight. I glued them in with Tamiya extra thin, let it cure overnight.
Then i clamped the damn thing together using superglue at certain spots. After that cured i thightened the clamps a little more and
kinda flooded it with extra thin. Again i let it cure overnight before taking the clamps of. It worked. But if you take up the model
it sometimes makes a noise like it wants to crack, so i dont take it up if i dont need. LOL

BTW i used visegrips to clamp it. And Tamiya tape.

Thanks Thatmas, i think i went a littlebit overboard in the end. The plane is almost finished just some little touches more like the pitotube which kept falling off 100 times and i
cannot find it anymore. I am going in to building the base (carrier deck) now.


















More in the final reveal section soon. Thanks for looking and please comment.

Now the Base. I chose to use a diorama where the F8- is landing and catching an arrestor cable. The whole base (exept the tiedown points) is build from scratch.

The deck itself is just a piece of plywood which i painted with some dark gray automotive primer i had left over. the tiedownpoint were drilled 2 mm deep. Thanks to Brundledonk who did the math for his base for the f4 phantom groupbuild. he stated the distance as 90mm in 1/32 scale. that makes 60 mm in 1/48 scale. Thanks again Brundledonk you avoided a lot of headache.







Tie down points PE. The are tiny (5mm Dia) and i thought to glue them in i use pledge Future.





I then sprayed the whole deck with Future



Masking for markings







Thanks for looking
