  1. Some more work done basic pre marble - most airframes look fairly clean got the normal tan brown on the tail soon be able to star on the cam
  2. Started on the paint …. a bit of a marble coat with some various colours before putting on the SEA Camo grey Hopefully ok once the gloss goes on it always tones down …. before the main camo colours I need to get the glass on, cockpit sorted etc
  3. Bit more Oxford blue to go on then hopefully ready to start decals - keep meaning to sort the glass out and get the crew in etc …
  4. Yes watched the bits on FB via a couple of groups - hopefully look great when done....hope they mask the same way I have to for the paint job!!!
  5. defo a modular approach to the build/paint job … got the red on first before masking and sorting the nose then the intakes in that order… A masking tape ‘queen’! had to get the blue onto the fuselage behind the splitters etc … Radome and intakes on bit more work to get the radome and anti glare area painted, then sort the white out over the intakes etc ….then I need to plan the blue/white demarcation so as much if the red stripe decals go over the blue and cover the join!
  6. Pushing along wings and intakes yellow over white 494rd TFS fin top Primed with black MRP managed to find a Stbd side profile of a Lakenheath F-4D with the green ‘tan’. And some others ready to start the main paint job
  7. Moving on... Getting close to paint - as with all Tooms, need to paint behind the splitter plates/intakes before gluing them in...I will likely do the red tail/wing areas first, mask up, then then metal at the back, before I stick the nose and intakes on....
  8. Bit more done. Problem with raised panel lines is when trying to sort seams etc it ruins them... Got my SUU-21 Dispensers through, the kind people at videoaviaton.com through in a freebie SUU-20 dispenser Next up - painting - Metal areas at the back, fin cap to be painted yellow, nose cone NATO black. Polish the old canopies and mask up. Need to get the paint behind the splitter plates/intakes before they go on as well...
  9. Thanks v much @Giorgio N - thats really helpful....looking at the gun pack I can either fill in the gas vents or just leave it - its unlikely I can make the NACA intakes!! So it may be I just live with it... @Giorgio N I take it the beaver tail is the area below at the back between the fins? Can I please ask which lump needs removing? The small one on the right or the longer one on the left? Good point about the sand - some documentation says they did move to the FS30279 by the time this scheme was introduced...I also plan to get the FS33531 mentioned on the Hi Decal instructions so I can at least try it - I do also have the UK Desert Pink....any advice/experience appreciated - I do prefer Mr Color or Mr paint if anyone has any views/knowledge! There are mentions or the Phoenix trays being on the aircraft and fuel tanks, I have seen pics with the tanks and various training CAT AIM 9 rounds/ACMI rounds etc....I will likely put the trays on or have to fill in a few holes!
  10. Although busy with 2 x Phantoms, I will pop this in here as a sideline.... I am no Tomcat expert but I think the kit is fine with the decals - lots of different views on there on the light tan colour used and changes, any advice/expertise gratefully received!!
  11. Kit: 1/48 Revell F16 Air Team Subject: General Dynamics F-16C Block 32 of the USAF Air Demonstration Squadron 'Thunderbirds' Details: Modelled as per reference pics from interweb - pic of a dirty jet a bit unusual! Misc: Spare pilot. Mr Paint paints, Mr Color paints, Vallejo paints, Floreys Dark Dirt Wash Build Thread:
  12. All done will place some pics in the gallery... Thanks for hosting guys and those following on with advice!
