Still working on the Sturmtiger tank but will join this great group build ASAP. really enjoying the work that everyone in the GB is doing. Its inspiration!



Nothing better than to see the in box review of this kit from Bob!

http://www.genessis-models.co.uk/ibr/f4bibr.html

I am considering some aftermarket resin /PE cans?
or maybe some aftermarket resin wheels? or both?

Hope to be posting the beginning of my WIP thread here soon gentlemen!

My first GB here on Genesis [spitfire] was where I won the Phantom for this GB! The Spitfire that Aiden sent me was a kit he won from Genessis also!

You're too kind Tid. But actually, the Spit was from my own collection. AidAn (still spelt with an "A"!) [rolleyes]

It would be kinder if I got my facts and the spelling of your name right!!!!! so sorry about that--I keep spelling it like a friend of mine spells his name. I promise to make a real effort! At any rate, I have the Phantom becasue of Aidan's sharing when I was just beginning. Could not have gotten off to a start without his assistance. [BTW-- "Tid" was a good one and I deserved it several times over]

While I was waiting for coats of paint to dry on the tank tonight I opened the Phantom [for about the 10th time] and had a fresh look at everything. I posted Bob's in-box video review link above and it really tells more that I can relate here. As I went through the kit I picked out a few parts and some of the paperwork to highlight. Here are some montage type images:













I know that the bottom of the fuselage behind the cans is not part of the engine or exhaust, it just has great detail so I threw it in this montage!

just so happens that when I first bought my set/sol solutions I got two of each! I also have a set of the Mr mark set/sol but that stuff can eat plastic! What I really need for the decals and stencils is a tiny crew of application dudes? maybe I could get my deck crew figure set to pop in and help? just having  day dream.
