Hi Pete and Ted, thank you very much for the kind words - it's a nice motivation! A really like this forum. Learn a lot of you guys, friendly and you even meet some women - wel, Ted's muse and some nice plastic ground crew ;-)

And Ted, your plans for the diorama are amazing!!! Here is a idea for your clouds...



They actually made a cloud at the expo 02 in Zwitzerland. I walked in it - amazing. It was a tube construction with countless little nozzles for creating fine mist. So just scale it down and there you go lol. No really, can't wait to see your dreams coming reality!!!
And Pete, never saw something close to what you managed to create with your built!

Thanks again mates, will post more soon :-)

Fabian--THANKS! that expo had to be really cool. I live next to part of the Southern distal Appalachian chain of mountains along the east coast of the US. very old and worn down--not very high and no rocky peaks to admire--no snow caps.however, I attended a college on top of a local mountain years ago and it was just high enough so that in the evening and morning you could walk the campus as clouds drifted over and arpound you. great experience to be "in" the cloud. miss that.

You like clouds... Here is a picture a took an my last Holliday in Switzerland . The white behind my mates are the top of a zee of clouds - what a wow moment! I grow up in Switzerland but live now in Amsterdam for 10 years. Not bad at all but the mountains will always have a special place in my hart :-)

Have fun with your diorama and go wild!

Enough of the nice Holliday pictures - keep that for Facebook :-). Here some pics of my ordnance

I'm glad that the JSDAF is apparently not so into heavily packing there a Phantoms... Painting rockets is not one of my favorites :-/. Kudos to you guys with fully armed F4's

I agree with Ted, nice work on the fuel tank, pylons and missiles, and you are right about building and painting bombs and missiles it's pretty tedious, I hate cleaning up the seams on the bombs most of all.

It's all looking good so far mate

Thanks! Almost went wrong with the center tank. Tried shading it with pastels, which turned out nicey, but then I painted / sealed it by painting on a clear coating - with a brush... Pastels smeared all out. Lucky it doesn't look to bad, but fixated the pastels first next time!
How can I do that? With hairspray like in art class?

Started painting the fuselage and got carried away. Forgot to take pictures of the different stages. Like how the 'bleached' panels turned out :-)





And made some small addition behind the ejector seat.

sometimes the work is going so well its easy to forget to snap a picture here and there-no worries--we can see what you have accomplished. looks like you have made some great progress.

next time you use the pastels, you could use "clear" spray can paint to go over the pastel. I'm not sure that hairspray would hold up for you, and it also yellows over time. Hairspray does have lacquer in it but its just meant to be on the hair for hours at a time and then be washed out. when I did art we would "seal" our chalk and charcoal pictures with cheap hairspray, but the paper absorbed the hairspray and it stayed in place. on a plastic model if you put anything over the hairspray coat it would probably activate the hairspray and it would come off---like when you go to do the decals? I think it would eventually make a mess on your model one way or another.I am pretty sure you can get canned spray in gloss--to put your decals over, and also in matt to spray the model when you are finished.best wishes!

great work on the cockpit! very nice, especially for working with 1/72!

Krylon and Rustoleum both have flat or gloss enamels in spray cans. I have never had an issue with either brand in over 20 years.

Testors or Model Masters are excellent products if you can get your hands on them.

Fabian,

I still find it hard to think that it is a 1/72 scale model. The detail you have done is incredible, and I just love those panels [thumb]

Do take heed of what Ted has said about using hairspray, it does have varying amounts of lacquer in it which could cause problems later on.

The blue weapons denotes that they are dummies, and you are correct in that they are only used for training purposes, and they were mainly used as reconnaissance.

Really good build, I look forward to seeing the finished model. Thought you might like this..

Okee Nigel, will buy a second model immediately lol. Hmmm, it would be a nice diorama...

Thank you guys for the good advice and the nice words. Def. won't using hairspray! Will by some spray cans. Nice excuse to go to the local hobbyshop - again :-). Maybe I can start with the decals today. Really looking forward to that stage - and I mean it. I love this kind of realism and details decals add to a built. Okee, I have to admit that the amount of stencils in 1:72 isn't that overwhelming as in your big scale builds - puh :-). Will ad some pics later...
