  1. Wow! What a beauty I think the F-4 always looks so good in the Iranian camouflage.
  2. Another warning...the nose fitment needs some fettling, but apart from that it goes together nicely
  3. Absolute stunner. I like your choice of scheme too. This looks like a great kit and a real bargain since being reboxed by Revell. I've one in the stash and all that's stopping me is deciding what squadron markings to go for! Hope it turns out as good as yours.
  4. Great result though despite your reservations about the green. It's a great kit in my opinion. I've been in that situation with the colour many times so here's a tip for a repaint. Carefully paint some masking fluid over the decals (with a small brush) that are within the areas that need repainting, then just re-airbrush the new colour over the top of the old very carefully (thinned well). As you are freehand spraying the camo use as small a nozzle as you can and blend the edges carefully. Just be careful removing the masking fluid from the decals....if you're too heavy handed you may pull them off, but if they're sealed with varnish from before they should be fine. I've done this loads of times when after everything is complete I'm not happy with a colour choice. Hope this helps
  5. Fabulous! I particularly like the weathering especially on the upper yellow wings....very realistic indeed. Your photography is awesome!
  6. Wow.. that's just great! I do love a Falklands SHAR and yours is a beauty
  7. Another great little event. I've been quite a few times now and always manage to pick up a bargain or a hard to get item. @Whofan The summer show usually has two club display halls whereas the winter only has the one in the 'portacabin'. Big thanks to the Air Museum once again
  8. Wow! Hard to believe it's the old Matchbox kit . Amazing how some of these old kits can turn out with a little bit of effort. I always thought the DO28 was a decent kit and didn't suffer from too many trench lines like some others. Fabulous work, thanks for sharing
  9. Very nice indeed. Despite the dodgy start with the sprues it's turned out beautifully
  10. Wow that is damn fine modelling! Absolutely stunning F-4. You can never have enough of them.
  11. Very nice indeed. I have one of these in the stash and looking at your great result has me itching to make a start. Love the extra details on the sidewinders and rbf tags etc. Brilliant
  12. Some great replies here guys...very interesting reading and thanks! I guess the moral of the story like somebody has said already is to pick an actual airframe and match the colours to that as close as possible. Regarding the Euro 1 grey i have also heard that story (probably on BM) about the Kemble spraying pressure. Also though wasn't the grey originally the darker 36118 before later changing to the more common 36081? I could be wrong but if you look at some ANG and AFRES C and D models you can see the differences.
  13. Here are some examples. First is what i would class as 'straight from the tin' 34079 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:McDonnell_F-4D_Phantom_II,_USA_-_Air_Force_AN0817246.jpg Then a very dark version....... https://www.tinker.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1240944/tinker-history-mcdonnell-douglas-f-4-phantom-ii/ Then the same 34079 green as part of Euro 1....can it really be the same colour? https://www.deviantart.com/f16crewchief/art/Jayhawk-F-4D-in-European-1-Scheme-No-2-798874937 This is why i love modelling!
  14. Hello all. As I was finishing another model in the USAF SEA camo scheme, while scouring photos for reference I have noticed that the dark green FS34079 seems to be very variable. Anything from a medium green, to darkish olive and on some aircraft almost a black green. This is especially notable on later F-4s. Do you know if there were different colour paints applied in the field as I can't imagine this much variation was due to weathering? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  15. Fabulous Shar! Love the weathering especially
