  1. Ha ha, I don’t know what you mean!!
  2. Thank you for your comments, particularly so that you have a link to the pilot. If you click on the link ‘background’ you will see just how brown the radome was. Regards Andrew
  3. Thank you, yes, very easy to do, just cut out of plastic card. The large rivets were simply punched out.
  4. Thank you, I’m intending on adding some ground crew in the near future.
  5. Thank you, yes, some were more green than others. As the jets went through for deep overhaul they were sprayed in the correct grays (Off the top of my head only four were sprayed in the ‘right’ colours).
  6. Thanks Antti, this project has been in my head for so long it’s a relief to have finally completed it. You’re right, it is quite an undertaking but once I’d got to the detailing stage I really started to enjoy it. Good luck with your build.
  7. Thank you, the F-4J(UK) were noted for having a green hue, and varied in tone depending on the light conditions. They seemed to only carry one ballast round.
  8. This has been a long term project inspired by a photo I’d seen nearly 30 years ago! Below is a link to my WIP on this project- Background story The Tamiya F-4J provided the basis for this project. Some aftermarket items were used, including GT intakes, Jet pipes, Aires seats, Eduard external PE sets and Flightpath for the AIM-9 acquisition round. Decals were from various sources. The squadron nose marking and crew names were custom made. Safety and rescue markings were created using homemade stencils (Silouhette Portrait Cutter). Paints came from MRP. regards Andrew
  9. Two FGR.2s trialled a one gray scheme (Light Aircraft Gray), it wasn’t effective and led to the introduction of a three grey scheme. If you’re wanting to do a well used aircraft the greys will merge under all the weathering, natural and manmade. Regards Andrew
  10. The edging of upper aux’ recess was usually painted red, or muted pink (as used in the roundels/fin flash) in the final years. The doors were painted red.
  11. Main upper fuselage, tail, stabilators and upper outer wing panels - Barley Grey Upper inner wing sections - Medium Sea Grey lower surfaces - Light Aircraft Grey Airbrake door - red Lower aux’ door - red Upper fuselage aux’ door recesses - red regards Andrew
  12. Here's where I am with the build...
  13. Extra Dark Sea Grey over white, regards Andrew
  14. Not sure, but dark sea grey was introduced post Falklands.
  15. This has been on the bench for quite sometime but finally I feel that I'm getting there. Decals next and then on to the weathering stage.
