Great start Fabian, my Revell kit is just a rebox of the Hasegawa kit you have the intakes are a damn nightmare, I used my usual aluminium foil sleeve method, and a little Perfect Putty.
Good luck with the rest it will look great with those Japanese markings.

Thank you Gary! I saw your alu - method in your 1:48 build. Will try that next time :-). Just realized that you have 3 Phantoms on display - they look great. Like the painting on the German one... how you painted the lighter spots? With airbrush?

Thanks Fabian, the lighter areas/spots are airbrushed, just lightened the base colour and turned the pressure down to about 10psi.

I often wonder if any of these companies, that produce and manufacture models, actually try and build them for themselves, out of the box.

Okay, I know that modelling requires the ability to produce such wonderful works of art, but the amount of corrections needed to be done can be quite excessive. Surely we should be using our skills to improve and modify (scratch building) the models, not just toil to correct sloppy manufacturing and design work.

I'm climbing down off the box now, i've had my say on that now.

Fabian that was a good recovery of the intakes, nice job, and all those decals.

Hi Nigel, thank you for placing the box :-). I didn't expect the 1:72 scale model to be perfect. But being able to see the inner construction f the wing through the intake is kind of a bummer for a quite pricey kit. But hey, I'm new to all this and stuff like that gives me the opportunity to learn. And time isn't really an Issue so I just keep on sanding an being happy for myself with the improvement ;-). But thanks for the support - and can't wait to start with the decals lol

Thank you Gary. Hmmm, I don't have a AB and the Paintjob on the Kai has some similar fading of the panels. On this picture it shows really goed:



I would like to imitate that effect but don't know how to do that with regular brush painting. Maybe really thinned color and multiple layers of dry brushing??? Have to make some tests...

you could always consider masking off various panel sections and using rattle can paint??

Some nice extras you've go there Fabian it will add a lot to the finished model.

For those panel touch ups, paint the overall light grey first, then mask and paint the darker panels and give them a wash with black, it should get close to the effect of the photo

Thank you Very much for the advise, will try it out on some test objects first to get a feeling for the small masking and painting :-)

Some pictures of my progress so far: glued the fuselage, sanded and re scraped. Had to sand quite a bite around the intake covers and the seamline where the front part is joining the main fuselage parts. Could be my fault - quite sure it is, because the dry fit was good... But no harm done :-)







And some work done on the exhaust. Used mr. Metal color but you have to paint really quickly, this stuff dries sooo fast!!! But glad with the results:-)









That's it for now, hope you like it - I do lol

Thank you Ted! Your build and paintwork looks great. I enjoy following your WIP a lot :-). Have you revealed your plans for your diorama yet of is it a surprise???

No weapons with this kit, but I have them now anyway... but it looks like the Japanese are not so much into weapons. On most of the references I found there are hardly any weapons on the Phantom, maybe some blue sidewinders (for training a guess). Decided to put those under the wings. Together with a big fuel tank in the center - going for the clean and cool look of the F-4 :-)

My mistake, I saw the weapons listed on the box front and assumed that it was for your kit?

thanks for your comments. if anything I post up helps anyone, I am glad. most times I sit in front of the computer and wait on someone's arm to hand out the answer to my confusion over which step next. still struggle quite a bit and cause myself all kinds of problems.

My diorama? well, I have posted a bit more recently but here goes:

I will have a relatively long, narrow base that indicates the Vietnamese terrain per images I have found.Everything on the ground will be very small. My Phantom will be on a rod above the base [in flight obviously] and I hope to give the illusion of the plane being pretty far up from the ground? the "ground" will show signs of bombardment old and new and my Phantom will display the......................oops, ran out of ink!! imagine that! seriously, I hope to depict a bombardment in progress and MAYBE a sparse cloud level between the ground and the plane--MAYBE? keeping an open mind--which means I can't make up my mind.

EDIT: never mind my chatter about weapons/ordinance. I go crazy whenever I think a missile or bomb is anywhere around. I used to own a relatively large stash of martial arts weapons. I sold most everything except a reasonable quality samurai sword. I'd probably mount it on my Phantom if I could? or maybe on a Zero? LOL
