  1. Terrific Tonka, and a great result for all your trials and tribulations
  2. You queried yourself on the shades of the grey (IMHO they look spot-on ) but can you please tell me which paints you have used for this beauty?
  3. Congratulations on this Phantastic Phantom! You have done a great job on the upper wing colour/shade - did you decide to prime in different shades and then do a single top coat? or did you opt for doing different colours? Also, please enlighten us to which paints you used? thanks!
  4. Nice finish! As delticfan asked, Which paints did you use?
  5. 71chally, your understanding is correct
  6. Julien, We hadn't got time to keep 'em clean - because we were too busy being Mean ! With XXX being the 'Spearhead of NATO' ! (Bionic Budgie) Only RAF Phantom Phixers (of the early '80's era)will understand/appreciate this Oh, those were the Good Old Days ! . Mercifully, RAF Hendon can give her the love and attention she (XV424) deserves!
  7. Hi Barside, I concur with all Phone Phixer’s comments above. I was on 29(F) and 64(R)(228 OCU), and I also never noticed any great difference in the colour of the upper surfaces. Again, your idea of one colour with slight variations would be spot on. I attach a link to show the best shot of one of our old Kites from above. I hope this helps! http://aviationarchives.blogspot.com/2015/09/f-4m-xv424.html The dihedral of the starboard outer wing catches the light and gives the appearance of a much lighter colour - However, the port outer wing is exactly the same colour - but shows no difference in shade to the adjacent inner wing. I look forward to viewing your finished aircraft.
  8. to Bill,B's comment above, The British Midland Viscount was also the first plane I ever flew in from EMA to Jersey, back in 1970. So your model also brings back many happy memories for me too, many thanks ! Great build too !
  9. Another Phine Phantom to add to your collection. Keep 'em coming Best Regards, 29Triplex.
  10. Phantastic Phantom (as your final of four!), please don't let it be your last to show us
  11. Magnificent Marines Machine, nice and clean. Great work Jon!
