  1. This started in February in Big In Japan GB. Went on the shelf when Southern Europe GB came out. I have recently returned to it. Just done the heat shield and various formation lights. Paint needs a bit of tidying up, then it'll be varnish. Mid-Feb is credible and ties in nicely with 'Boomers GB start. Previous thread: Chris
  2. This has been complete for a while, but I wanted to take some decent photos and decided to build a backdrop for future photographs as well (appropriately enough the Fujimi 1:24 garage). As a kit it's OK, it's pretty basic, there is no engine and the underside is a complete work of fiction. It's a bit of a gimmick that you can steer the front and rear wheels to simulate the four-wheel steering of the real car, I'd trade that for some accurately modelled suspension, especially as I'm not sure the wheels sit quite right relative to the arches. There were a few little issues with the interior (seats needed backs fabricating and the dashboard isn't a great fit). Also I should have attached the front bumper to the body before painting. I've got two more of these kits in the stash to replicate the other two Preludes I owned, so expect more in this thread at some point in the future. WIP thread here if anyone is interested:
  3. Greetings all and a happy new year to you all! I thought I would kick this year off with a quick WIP (which will start off quick and then just slow right down like all the others! But the intentions are there!). I got this kit from Santa last year (alright I bought it and gave it to Mrs C, who wrapped it and gave it to me for Christmas……. a nice surprise too, I wasn’t expecting that!), I wanted the airfix version but there were one or two small niggly things that I didn’t like, the main one being the lack of vents by the exhaust (see I told you they were niggly), whilst searching up the Airfix kit I saw this one was available for a little less and with free P&P. Having had several incarnations of Fujimi Phantoms in the past and checking the molds were the better detailed ones I plumped for a bit of nostalgia rather than the new and modern, my foggy memories does make me think that these Phantoms hold up very well. I keep forgetting to take a photo of the box and kit so here is a cheap box shot including all my other holiday additions! Whilst waiting for Santa to do his stuff I also bought some replacement seats and canopy mirrors both from Quickboost, which look very nice. I think the seats are the only weak point of the kit and these do look the part. I also got a set of canopy masks from QMT to save my ham fistedness in masking for something less worth while! So I am all set, a good wash ensued and then onto the cockpit (where else). Like I said I didn't do photos of the kit parts as: a. they have been around for years and you can see them on the web and b. I totally forgot because I was too excited to get going! I gave the area a good clean up and went to prime, unfortunately here in Nova Scotia the temperature doesn't always play ball and with my spray booth being in the garage it doesn't always go well, it was -17 outside which brought the garage temperature right down and even started to freeze my pot of brush washing water! Luckily I invested in a small space heater which warms my bench area up quite nicely to double figures after 10 mins or so, a much cheaper option than trying to relocate my spray booth into the house! So started with a cockpit.. and then a coat of Vallejo Medium sea grey, I also threw a bit of black around and started to colour in the seats with Vallejo acrylic. For the instruments I decided to opt for the kit decals rather that painting, I knew I wouldn’t get it as neat or the colour details in and I do know the raised details on the plastic doesn’t match the decal but I didn’t think it would be too noticeable anyway. A quick gloss coat on the decal areas and with the decals in place I applied lashings and lashings of MicroSol to try and get the decals to settle down so at least some of the detail would show through…..not that it would make much difference.It looks a bit bright in this shot but that is mainly due to the flash. Before fitting the halves together I added a tiny little bit of detail just to fill the area in front of the Observers instrument panel a bit more, And then bolted the fuselage together nice and tightly! Lastly, every phantom build I have done, the pitot tubes on the fin never survive my sausage fingers during the build, so far so good! but will they last?? There is also a spine antenna molded into one half but I sacrificed that straight away as that would hinder in tidying up the join. Once the fuselage is all together and joins faired in it should continue quite quick! So until next time.. Laters all! Bob
  4. Hello everybody... Fresh from the Sharkmouths Group-build i present to you my A-7D. It is in the markings of the 354th TFW. Stationed at Korat RTAFB June 1973. The mouth and eyes are hand painted as i could not source any decals for the project. I have added a link to the WIP log. Please feel free ask questions, comment, or give your thoughts. Dennis
