Finally after moving to a new house two months ago, my space is now available to get started with my first GB. I am working with the Good Morning Da Nang kit in an inflight mode. Hopefully  I can add a little twist if I can done in time. Here are the required box content shots for your viewing pleasure.

Steve























I may be using some of these guys, not sure yet.









Hopefully I have learned some things from those of you who have gone before me.
So here we go!

Go Steve !
Still plenty of time to get finished, from watching the other builds of the Eduard boxing of this Phantom it ls a really top notch kit with a ton of detail.
Looking forward to following along on your build, what scheme are you planning to do ?

Steve,
Nice hat to toss in! Great kit and all those goodies. thinking about the Phantom in flight over the deck or just after takeoff? should be good, very good!

same with me actually--depends on time and progress for me. might just be base with Phantom in flight overhead. I always like to think big, dream, then see what I can get done reasonably.

Steve, nice to have you onboard. Enjoy the build, and don't forget to weight the nose to balance the resin burners.

Good luck.

I have started out with the cockpit per tradition.
Despite having seen several reminders that there are some pieces left off the Eduard instruction sheet that need to be put on the tub before photo etch is attached, I did. Fortunately I caught the issue just before I started the PE.



Here are all the bits of the cockpit before assembly. I didn't realize that the RIO right panel was supposed to be painted in grey until after I had it attached. I hand painted with dilute XF-54 to reduce chance of brush strokes.



Everything went together nicely as has been seen on the builds of others. I did find a little discrepancy as to where the pilots instrument panel was to be attached to the tub. The instructions look to me that the PE should abut against the aft side of the tabs on the tub. But then there is a gap between the PE left and right instrument panels with either the front instrument panel or the back bulkhead. I suppose it makes the most sense to have the gap by the bulkhead, but I did't appreciate it until they were already set. I know that it will likely not even be seen with the closed canopy, crew, seat etc.

 

Here we are after a light india Ink wash.

Now on to some of the bigger bits.

Which bits of the tub are you referring to? I think I have it covered but will be starting PE shortly and don't want to mess up.

Thanks

If you look at the first picture with the pe installed into my pit, you will see some grey plastic just in front of the PE side instrument panels in the front cockpit. There is exposed painted plastic on each side between the front instrument panel and the left and right panels that are on the tops of the two sides. Looking at the Eduard site they have mounted the front instrument panel so that it sits aft of the plastic tabs on the tub, so that the side panels and front panel meet. Looking at the kit instructions I took it that the flat part of the panel sat directly against those tabs and not in front. Everything still fits into the fuselage so its not a deal breaker, but I would like it to be "right" if I could. Not sure I want to mess with trying to remove the panel and install as intended.

Guess I am like Ted.
After looking at the little misspostion of the pilots instrument panel I realized I couldn't leave it be. I was able to free it up from the tub and move it aft the few mm's it need to go (fortunately I had used Kristal Klear). Now I can sleep better.
