  1. After 5 years I still keep coming back to look at this - such an incredible build! chris
  2. Those Pom Poms are looking very nice - can't wait to see how the next stages turn out! chris
  3. Many thanks for your comments and yes the stencils can be off putting and I hate doing them! I have to be in the right frame of mind to do them and even then I do section by section cheers chris
  4. The second of this years finished Phantoms and this one is from Eduards Good Morning Da Nang kits. This one is VF111 'Sundowners' from the USS Coral Sea March 1972. These kits from Eduard are great - with all the aftermarket you need and a great range of options as regards schemes. I bought this for £39 at the time! Back in the day when I was collecting die cast I had the Corgi version of this machine but I never thought it did it justice and always planned to try and do a version in 1:48 The decals are great although as with any phantom the stencils are tedious! Paints are Mr Color and Alclad for the metal parts. It is number 6 of 6 F4's I have built and I have two more to do at some point
  5. superb build - heard a lot of positive things about MRP paint but no tried it as yet
  6. Thank you all for your kind comments - it is Phantom number 6 on my flight line with two more to build
  7. Thanks Matt - the Revell one is newer but this is a separate mould as far as I am aware
  8. I am like many of you a huge Phantom fan and have built a number of the years. This is from the Eduard Rockin Rhino kit that I have been meaning to build for a couple of years. I chose this scheme as I think it looks great and it is VF-92 'Silver Kings' from the USS Constellation in 1973 and is a J model Phantom. Its a great kits with no issues. Paints are mainly Mr Color with some Alclad and all the aftermarket came in the box.
  9. Afternoon folks - been on something of a Tonka project this year and this one is a Saudi Air Force version built straight out of the box from Italeri in 1:48. I think I have the measure of this kit now and enjoyed the build with no real issues. The main bit to watch out for is swing wings and the front section where the fit is a bit off. I used Tamiya and Mr Color paints with some Alclad. The Tonka looks great in that desert wrap around camo I reckon and it goes with a similar scheme I did for a Lightning a couple of years ago.
  10. Thanks Des this is what I hope someone who has made that kit can tell me cheers chris
  11. Afternoon folks Think I have the measure of the Italeri kit now so was wondering if their IDS kit could be used to build a GR4? thanks Chris
  12. Ok thanks for the help gents. I'm heading to the Hannants shop tomorrow and will check out some of their colours for this whilst I'm there chris
  13. Thanks Selwyn - that Light Stone colour is going to be a tricky one to find looking at Paint4Models!
  14. Afternoon folks I am next planning a Tornado GR1 RSAF (camo) and have a question about the camoflage colours. The kit is the Italeri 1:48 Gulf War Tornado and it gives the following colour call outs: FS 33448 sand - I can't seem to find a match for that with Tamiya or Mr Color? FS 30118 dark earth - was thinking of XF52 for this? FS34079 dark green - was thinking XF81 or Gunze 309 for this? Any help on this appreciated. thanks Chris
  15. I also think its a very sad day when you are not moved by the events in Christchurch and other hate related massacres or indeed natural disasters. What helped the people of Aberfan deal with their disaster was the outpouring of support from around the world. Compassion in the face of disaster or evil - different people show that in different ways.
