Gee this GB came around a bit quicker than I had hoped/planned for! I had a hard time planning what I wanted to build, originally planned a Luftwaffe Sabre or Sabre Dog, Hartmann’s F-86 of JG 71 “Richthofen” does look fantastic!! Hmmmm a later project I think!!! But then I can across the Grand Phoenix FJ-4B Fury, looks cool and plenty of resin, I just had to build it. (I bet no one noticed I had the wrong box photo here!!!) Not sure which scheme yet, the grey one certainly looks interesting....but I have 5 lovely resin Bullpups! I have just about finally finished the Heinkel so will start this one then.......hopefully! Oh I even managed to get a second one for next to nothing due to it missing decals.
Hi Everyone, This is my first model after having bought so many and not building them over the years, i have alays been hesitant to assemble and paint them and finally decided to give it a go, if you look closely enough you will see several mistakes, I learnt alot with this model and it took longer than I thought it would, I have never filled and sanded before and I learnt what puttys I like and which ones I dont. I didn't like the empty space behind the seat so I scratchbuilt several things based on 2 grainy pictures of that area something i thought i would surely stuff up. Masking was a disaster on several occasions the paint peeled off with the tape. I could talk for ages on it.
