  1. Ok great - I will do that and thanks!
  2. So am looking to crack on with my Tamiya 1:350 Bismarck but for the life of me I can't seem to find an aftermarket wooden deck that isn't China based. So I wondered if anyone knew of anyone or shop in the UK or Europe that was selling one? Alternatively I could paint myself so the next question would be what is the correct colour? I don't mind acrylics or enamel thanks chris
  3. Looking great - yes I use Mr Hobby as well and love it. I also still use Tamiya with the levelling thinner which works well. Is the aluminium Mr Hobby as well?
  4. This is an interesting build as I am doing the same kit currently! I've used Halfords Appliance White on mine - what are you using for the white on yours? chris
  5. Those Pom Poms are looking very nice - can't wait to see how the next stages turn out! chris
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. superb build - heard a lot of positive things about MRP paint but no tried it as yet
  9. Thank you all for your kind comments - it is Phantom number 6 on my flight line with two more to build
  10. Thanks Matt - the Revell one is newer but this is a separate mould as far as I am aware
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Thanks Des this is what I hope someone who has made that kit can tell me cheers chris
  14. 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
