    F-4EJ Kai Questions

    I've bought my go to choice of mask set for my build, New Ware masks, and something seems a little off. The mask for the seal of the pilots canopy seems a bit short and not quite the correct profile. Also the masks for the side panels of the front windshield don't seem right. There's no real frame at the bottom of the side windshield of the real aircraft, only a small strip of sealant. The masks will end up giving you a thick strip of sealant and frame. Anyone else tried the New Ware set?
  2. Hi Wafu A couple of things if your interested, the Tornado GR4 didn't carry the GBU-49, it was Paveway IV's which are similar but there are differences. Also the Tiald pod wasn't carried at this point it was the Litening pod by the time the Paveway IV was on the scene. L' Arsenal do Paveway IV and Terma pods but not sure if they'll do them in 1/32.
  3. My understanding is there will be a boxing with the book and one without.
  4. You can generally tell what the camo is by the colour of the roundels, Barley grey camo in low viz roundels where the later MSG scheme had the standard dark coloured roundels. The exception to this was, like the GR4 fleet some F3’s had a mix of the two camo’s on one airframe, although I seem to recall this was not limited to the odd panel here and there like the GR4’s mostly were. I’m pretty sure at least one airframe had MSG fuselage and BG & LAG main wings
  5. Dont believe they have ever issued such a set. Nothing on Eduard website and nothing showing on Scalemates for related products of the kit.

    Nice site, that'll come in handy for me as well as I've started mine too. I'd agree the instructions are slightly lacking in some content regarding painting, seem to want to concentrate more on what parts are called on the real aircraft and the differences between the EJ and other Phantom marks.
  7. Sorry yes, the new Tornado GR4 kit, I think they double up as GBU-12 but they provide the casing adaptor to dress them up as Paveway IV’s. Or L’Arsenal do them in resin......... http://www.larsenal.com/1-32-paveway-iv-smart-bomb-x-2-c2x24709913
  8. You get some in the new Italeri kit, maybe not the most accurate but close.
  9. Joined my wing and fuselage last night with very little issue, cockpit went inside the fuselage half’s again with no issue. Are you sure your placing the cockpit in the correct position? Front seat should cause any issue, there are little slots on each side below the curve of the dash, the fuselage sides slot in to these.
  10. I'm delighted with mine too and enjoying building it!
  11. I think what your seeing there is more weathered examples of the 2 tone scheme, could the first image of 3816 potentially be where the fuselage has been cleaned to get rid of gun gas residue?! This is just a guess for the reason.
  12. It’s definitely a two grey scheme, FS36375 for the all over colour and FS36270 for the darker grey. I used Mr Hobby H306 and H308 for the colours on my build and the Model Maker decal set..... https://www.scalemates.com/kits/modelmaker-d72108-su-22-in-polish-service-part-3-gray-scheme--1175839 Although the link shows 1/72 there available in 1/48 as mine were.
  13. Totally agree with this. I've not bought many Airfix kits over last few years but seen plenty other people who have had issues with short shots etc. Other certain companies make similar errors and end up with undesirable nicknames and endless rants. These companies 'were' and are releasing kits that are right up my street not more Spitfires etc. Rose tinted spectacles springs to mind!
  14. Ordered the Kits World 3d cockpit decals but still need to buy the kit, hopefully get it tomorrow from my LHS. Need to find my 3822 for a suitable aircraft I flew from 12 AEF at Turnhouse.
