Time to get in on the fun of a GB!  You can never go wrong with an F-4 GB!  

Here is my entry for the GB, the new Academy F-4C 1/48 scale.  I plan on doing this build all out of the box and using the kit decals.  A tribute to General Olds!

Here are the sprue shots.

I am looking forward to building this kit!

Hi Tom,
 
nice kit. It is in my stash too. Like the F-4B with great details and a nice choice off decals. I will follow this one and I look forward to see your result.

The assembling has started and so far, it's been a joy.

The cockpit was painted XF-54 and then I hand painted XF-1 (thank goodness for magnifying glasses!).  After letting that dry I then did some dry brushing with Light Sea Grey.  I then used the Flory Model Wash Light Dirt to do the demarcation lines.  Then I used Future on the dials.  The radar scopes were clear green and clear red.

Ah, injector pin marks.  These are on the main landing gear bays.

Here are the landing gear bay installed.

Wing area installed.

The engines.  I painted the engines a number of different MM Metalizers.  Burnt Iron, Exhaust, Burnt Metal and then I buffed the Burnt Metal.

And here they are installed.

Thanks for looking!

I think it is time for an update.  [thumb]

I have gotten quite a bit done since the last update.  

Cockpit tub has been installed.

[DSCN2508_zps9c086e87] 
Ejection seats.
[DSCN2510_zps48a3466e] 
Fuselage half is top bottom instead of left and right.  I think I like this arrangement.
[DSCN2511_zps69346dae] 
[DSCN2512_zpsf071b797] 
[DSCN2513_zpsbc7d73bd] 
The problem with every F-4 model, the intakes.  Nice gaps.
[DSCN2514_zpsdebf736a] 
[DSCN2515_zpsece4eef3] 
Perfect Plastic Putty to the rescue.


The tail was a strange fit I will have to admit.
[DSCN2518_zps233eb3b0] 
The paint stage, one of my favorite things about modelling.  I especially like painting the SEA camo.
The brown is done.


Flat Green added.
[DSCN2521_zpsb543837d] 
And now the Deep Green has been added.  After painting I added some white to the colors to lighten the paint so it doesn't look like a "brick".


Thanks for looking!

The decalling is done, although I still need to apply the solutions to get them to snuggle down.
