Decided to start on this one as well, its the same kit as the Richthofen Anniversary kit I have already built, for this one however I am going with the two tone Grey cammo pattern also from the 73 Fleugel Lufftwaffe , I had also purchases the Airdoc decal set for all the stencils and the Quickboost resin seats.
Made a start on the cockpit tub as usual , and the fuselage interior, here I hace scratch built the side walls using some thin brass printers plate, and using the Eduard Da Nang kit as a guide added some details from plastic strip and section. Scored the brass sheet on the Starboard side panel in the Armourers position. Primed with Alclad grey micro primer, then with Gunze H317. Detailed the instrument panel and rear cockpit panels with Humbrol flat black, and dry brushed the cockpit side instruments first with black, then in white, red and yellow.Just need to detail the main instrument faces next.
This where I am at for now.























Thanks for looking, and looking forward to enjoying more of the GB
Gary

Gary,

That's a nice start mate.

I've noticed that the modern 1/72 kits seem to have some really good detail. I'm liking that cockpit, and that little bit os scratch build will make so much difference.
I might go back to doing a few 1/72 aircraft.
I do like the quickboost seats, I would say the ones with the kits were not worth doing?

Your decals are just so yummy! Cartograf, the name speaks for it'self.

Managed to get a good 6-7 hours in the workshop today, and got a fair way into the build, a liitle more scratch building on the cockpit detail, and work on the intakes, using plastic strip and Perfect Plastic Putty, primed with Alclad grey micro filler primer, lightly Scotch brighted to smooth it out and then given an overall coat of Gunze H307.
Assembled the drop tanks and the missile pylons and again primed and painted along with the drop tanks, missiles sprayed with Vallejo Olive Gelb VA013,and the Quickboost seats sprayed Tamiya X18 semi gloss black. Next up will be the Darker grey Gunze H317 and the metal shades around the exhaust cans and the under side of the rear fuselage and rear stabilizers.



























Thanks
Gary

I forgot to add that is a comprehensive set of decals for 1/32 let alone 1/72 , some of them must be microscopic ! I can see that they will really add a nice touch when they are on the model

More done today managed another good 6-7 hours in the workshop, and got the second part of the ca mo on and the metallic areas second grey is Gunze H317 the metals are Vallejo Natural steel, Gunze Mr Metals Stainless steel and Alclad pale burnt metal, clear blue,and jet exhaust,nowhere near as precise as Pete Brundleknocks, but its going to have to do, the cockpit edges done with Tamiya NATO Black as is the radome. Next stage masking the weapons ready for the bands etc to be painted as there are no weapons decals on the sheets I have, then mask wheel bays and then final assembly before the marathon decal session.
Done a couple of videos to accompany please feel free to comment or criticize, hope you enjoy.
Thanks Gary

I don't even know how you do some of the things I am seeing in 1/72. I am sitting here moaning to myself about how small something is in 1/48 that i have to paint! you have my full admiration. and how tiny are some of the decals???

I agree with Ted, amazing how you manage to cram so much detail in this scale, it's looking really nice already, I imagine you have got a bit of a mission ahead with all the decals, but it's going to be spectacular when it's finished, I am also in awe of how you can get such results while building multiple kits too , I can only concentrate on one at a time, I have tried to do more than one but I just end up finishing one and the the other or giving up completely lol !

Great work on both build mate

The decal marathon has begun, started by laying down the kits decals that are needed 1st Lufftwaffe insignia, and the pin stripes panel demarcations and serial numbers, no issue with them at all they all went down with just a spot of Mr Softener to help pull them into the panel lines.
Now onto all those stencils and boy O boy there are hundreds of the beggars, decided to try and work methodically down the Port side 1st will then go onto the starboard side then top and bottom and finally the pylons and tanks etc, the Airdoc decals are fantastic only slight issue is that they grip like limpets the second they touch the kitand definitely no solutions it would be like super glueing them on, just got to take my time so the photos are where its at now, for sanity sake I did about two and a half hours then went onto the Da Nang kit for a few hours so that's in primer now, and then onto a Helicopter kit I have started the Revell NH 90 in 72nd to distract and fill in the gaps between the Phantom builds, oh and the Hunter.
I really must settle down and get something finished instead of a pile of part builds.











Thanks for looking any feedback welcome good or bad .
Good lick to everyone in the GB
Gary
