  1. I like that very much! Impressive build and great weathering. Good to see a non olive drab finish
  2. Superb! You have captured the look of a weary war bird perfectly! Fantastic weathering, a really impressive Phantom!
  3. Thank you all very much for all your kind comments & compliments
  4. Thanks for all the advice and suggestions, greatly appreciated
  5. Thank you all very, very much for all the comments and compliments, they are greatly appreciated
  6. This is Kitty Hawk's 1/48th scale Kaman Super Sea Sprite. An out of the box build, with no after market added. Fit was a bit iffy in places, especially around the windows & doors. There was quite a bit of flash, especially on the smaller parts, and there were loads of ejector pin marks on the interior surface where they would be seen if modelled with doors open. Instruction were confusing in places, especially where it showed the rotor head assembly. Painted with Humbrol enamels. Thanks for looking Angelo
  7. Thanks for that. I wasn't aware of this, but it appears that in Germany Phantoms were being used for air defence from 1974 onwards, which is before the date of my model. Before that it was the Lightnings that took care of that role. As more Jaguars became available to release the Phantoms from the ground attack role, Lightnings were replaced by the Phantom. Every day is a school day !
  8. That is rather lovely Always liked a 110, great looking model.
  9. Having built a couple of these, I have found a way to reduce this issue. I attach the lower wing, before adding the upper panels, to the fuselage first. This allows me to get the fuselage joins as close as possible. It still needs some filling and sanding, but not as much. Thanks again for all the comments & compliments
  10. Thank you for the advice and suggestions. I have given most of them a go, but still no joy I used to have a Badger and that had a small Teflon bush/ seal that the needle went through. Does anyone know if Iwatas have the same? Thanks everyone
  11. Yes, I sprayed Tamiya smoke through a splatter mask. Thanks for all the comments & compliments, greatly appreciated
  12. Hasegawa's 1:48th scale Phantom FGR.2 I added a cockpit set from Aires, seamless intakes from Alley Cat and after market decals from Model Alliance to make a 14Squadron machine based at RAF Bruggen in 1970. A fairly straightforward build. Cutting & grinding needed to fit the cockpit & intakes, but noting too difficult. Painted with Xtracolor enamels & Mr Color acrylics. Thanks for looking Angelo.
