I am happy to be your stunt double Ted ! I don't need much room, a cupboard under the stairs like Harry Potter had will be good for me, you will just need to feed me a bucket of fish heads once a week

Aidan,
I already own a cane, a walker, and a wheelchair. been off of them all for almost 10 months and hoping to stay that way as long as possible! Truth is, back in 2000 the doctors did not know if I would be doing much of anything including walking. I am truly blessed to  have the mobility I have. thanks for keeping it light--that is the way I feel about it. I told my surgeon that I would go as far as I could on what I had left after a major spinal surgery in 2000, then I would keep going. So far, so good!!! ARRRRrrrrrrr!.....pirate!

OOPS, when I re-read the thread it seems that I may have given the impression I only have one leg! I have two. some men claim to have 3 but I would be lying if I tossed that comment out. I just don't do well with any kind of physical stress that might affect my spine. used to take dancing classes with the GF but I had too much back pain to continue.

NOW I am finally ready to "officially" start building on the Phantom F-4B 1/48 from Academy. I am going to keep track of the time I spend on the build and post the running total. should be interesting. I will be including building and documenting for the WIP thread. I am going to offer a good old Southern Phrase: "What does every southern redneck say just before he dies?.......HEY Y'ALL, WATCH THIS!" So it might be with this build? LOL

begin 0130

Despise looking for the blasted letters on the sprues a hundred times. I make a tape tag that is much more visible--saves time?



a bit of a chore to assemble the front landing gear bay as it is in 5 pieces.using tape to get alignment BEFORE glue saved my sanity?



cockpit is first sub-assembly for me. I cut the parts and associated numbers off the sprues with fast sloppy cuts. easier for me to go back afterwards when I have all the sub-assembly pieces together and do the fine trimming/sanding. did you notice the little known Phantom x-wing fighter cockpit? very rare.



leaving the instrument panels and seats out of the cockpit for easier painting. holding off on gluing side console in also, need to dry fit with tub in fuselage.

time was from 0130-0425=2hrs 55 minutes.

So it begins ! It's great to see you starting on the Phantom mate, I'm really looking forward to seeing this develop. Love the Idea of marking the sprue letters like that, I hate searching for them too, so I will pinching that one ! Some men claim to have "one foot" too, but the flight director figure I have only has "one inch" the poor chap lol !
I'm with you all the way on this Ted, it should be a breeze after the sturmtiger

Pete and Andy--thanks gentlemen.
I literally placed the tank on a shelf, turned around and opened the Phantom kit to get going. What I have encountered so far is a really nice fit.
I needed to sand the side consoles a bit to avoid the collision between them and the back piece. worked out ok--when I shoved the back piece in, it popped the consoles off and then I re-glued them and clamped them down. everything is good now. I placed the tub--with attached front landing gear well--on the designated front lower piece of fuselage and then dry fit the "one piece" fuselage over it. really good fit!

actually used tiny beads of CA glue to hold everything in place according to instruction sheet. when I dry fit the tub with the fuselage pieces, I found that the side console--right side of co-pilot seat--needed to lean outward a bit to match the fuselage side. otherwise it was a perfect fit!



Wait! on reviewing the "dry fit" image above, I noticed that I did not have the bottom of the console flush with the side of the tub, or pushed back against the back piece--DOH! I will have to check it again after re-positioning the side console to the correct position. One advantage of the macro images is that you "see" the parts as they relate to each other much better. just saved myself some trouble? maybe.

Looking good so far. Tape tags is a great idea. My eyes might be playing tricks on me but the side consoles for the pilot seat look like they might be on the wrong sides. Really looks like it in the picture to the left of the x-wing cockpit picture. Could just be my OCD acting up again though lol.

Didn't tell you about that one Ted. I like the idea of the sprue labels, nice one.

Forget the legs, it's the brains that are important.
