This is 1 of my entries, will be built in the 2 tone grey pattern, using quickboost resin seats, and have some great figures on order to accompany it.

Here are the entry shots box sprues instructions etc












Will hopefully get a start on this soon

I think I saw a photo on the net of this actual plane because when I did see I thought that would make a great scheme for the group build - but mine is the Da Nang set so sticking with the supplied decals.

Nice to see 1/72 here too! I build phantom out of this box, it's nice kit. You should pay attention to intakes as they look bad if you make them strait from the box.

Started on this today, decided that while still building the Me109 the DaNang Phantom would take up too much bench space, I had purchased the QuickBoost resin seats, but have now decided that they will go into another build another time.
Started with the cockpit assembly as usual,,building the seats which are made up of 5 parts each, there was a bit of flash on the mouldings but a few minutes with a scalpel and sanding sticks cleaned them up. I want a crew in this build so I did a quick mock up of the cockpit and instrument panels, to see if the figures would go in, I used one of Revells excellent 1/72 crew figures for the front jockey, but none of the figures in the Revell set would fit in the rear seat, so I used a PJ productions resin figure,which still needed a fairly drastic amputation of his lower limbs,and some surgery to the rear instrument panel to facilitate getting his legs in the cockpit, otherwise he would have ended up looking like the Knight in the Pythons film The Holy Grail. The inside faces of the fuselage sides had some very prominent ejector pin marks which I have filled with Tamiya surface primer, these will be sanded out in a day or so when fully cured. The cockpit tub is sprayed with a new Tamiya paint IJN interior Grey,and the seats in XF69 NATO Black,the seats have been detailed with Humbrol Enamels, the seat cushion is Olive Green, as is the chute cover, then dry brushed with Light Aircraft Grey,and Silver,and then the ejection pull chord in Lemon Yellow.The instrument panels on the cockpit sides have had the dry brush treatment as well, and then given a wash with Indian Ink, which flows around the raised detail nicely giving a sharp contrast to the dry brushed areas, the same treatment was also given to the instrument panels on the the dashboards.
I have assembled and cleaned up the rear fuselage sections, again some flash was present mainly around the Exhaust openings and the back section of the rear tail section,the lower wing section has also been added,no issues with this part at all.There was a light seam down the spine which after a couple of light passes with my Trumpeter seam scraper eradicated 99% of it, the rest will be attended to with Tamiya surface primer.I have given a coat of Vallejo White primer, which I well and truly bodged on the spine seam trying to be clever and ended up with some curtains the size of the ones in our front room, note to self patience is a virtue.I have given a few light coats of Windsor & Newton Satin Varnish over this area, it makes for easier sanding, and feathering in of the Vallejo primer.
So this is where its at at the moment,hopefully get a bit more done in the next few evenings.





























Thanks for looking and good luck to everyone in the Group Build really enjoying seeing all your builds develop.
Best Wishes 
Gary

Fantastic start Gary, the fine details in the cockpit really look great, very neat and precise painting, you do amazing work in this scale mate !
The pilot reminds me of this joke "doctor I can't feel my legs "......... " of course you can't sir I've cut off your arms"

1/72...that is NICE up in the front office. I like it that the pilot has the oxygen mask off of his face. don't seem to see a figure like that very often. way to charge out the gate on the build!!!

Got a few hours in after work tonight, I finished off detailing the crew figures and got the fixed to the seats, in turn fixed into the cockpit tub. There will still be some detailing to add here, some cabling and electronics boxes etc which I will scratch out of styrene sections and fine copper wire. Pleased to say the instrument panels fitted perfectly around the crew figures glad I did the test fitting first.The fuselage half's joined up with just a small step on the instrument coaming which I addressed with Tamiya surface primer. Married the fuselage front to the rear without any real issues again the slight gaps were treated with Tamiya surface primer. Next up the intakes, here is where the  first real issue occured, similar to Pete (Brundleknock)'s build on his super Tamiya F4, there are steps and gaps everywhere that are highly visible if left on the finished kit,there are deep troughs at the rear by the wing steps, here I used Perfect Plastic putty, applied in several thin layers until built up to the right level, then evened out with a damp cotton bud, I then added the intake cowlings, these also had a step in them where they join the main trunking, these were smoothed out with MR Dissolved putty thinned with Mr Thin liquid cement,painted on in about 8 thin coats, then all gently sanded out and blended in, not 100% perfect but now unless you shove your eye right into the intake they will pass. Noticed I will have to do some touching in on the crews helmets and the ejection chords on the seats.Next will be another dusting of Vallejo White primer, and a check of the seams, and correct as needed.
So here's where its at now.












Best Wishes
Gary
