I've been busy with daily work, wedding preparing, house decoration work and also my little brand Fairy Hobby affairs so really have not made models for a quite while.
Now here to share with you buddies the last finished piece.
Yes, the Chinese Farmer which shot down the USAF F-4C on June 26, 1967.
This work has been published on the famous aircraft modelling magazine Air Modeller Vol. 34,
and also on the Chinese magzine Model World issue August 2011.
If you are interested about the story, here is the interview I made with the veteran pilot who shot down the F-4B, Zhushu WANG.
Sorry only in simplified Chinese:

Here are some shots of the real plane, the very famous "Phantom Killer" in our childhood.
And if you are looking for the in progress thread, it's right here:

Small details and air brakes:
Finally some more.
Sent to Mr. WANG as a present.
The old pilot is very satisfied with it.
The memory book wrote by Phil Smith, another F-104 pilot who has been shot down and put in prison in China for over 7 years.
Poor man, sad period...
Thank you for your watching and any comments or critiques are greatly welcome!

I also feel it very meaningful to present it to a veteran pilot who has been so devoted for our country in his youth.
I was lucky enough to have a J-6 displayed just behind my home so I studied it a lot.
Plus Mr.WANG also tought me lots of knowledges about the plane.
Believe it or not, though he's over 80 years old, his memory about the MiG-19 and the air battle is still so sharp and clear, just like yesterday's affairs.
And all rivets are self made using the J-6 photos I took.
Thanks again for watching!
