  1. Hi, Joining up with this one; This is an OOB built basically to boost my Mojo... I seldom build WWII plane, unless it's has pin-up on it. So I will use kits world decal I'm not an expert, or hav access to good reference so.. any information or input regarding B-26 Marauder during WWII will be very helpful. Cheers, Mario
  2. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so: But I'll have to say a few words about this build, if you don't mind. It's my first completed kit of the year, and the build actually started back in December 2015. There is quite a lengthy and detailed WIP here, if anyone's interested in. It also explains the origins of this project, which I'm going to summarize here: it's a tribute to my friend Gene K (here on BM), who is the actual pilot of this very aircraft, and who donated the two kits I used for this build (Hasegawa 1/72 F-4J and Monogram 1/72 F-4C/D), plus some various other bits I'll mention later. The WIP thread has seen the participation of many others, among which I was very thrilled to have two other former pilots, like Fritag and Old Viper Tester, a former Phantom Phixer - DuncanB, and many others which offered their help, directions, advice and support. All in all, I learnt a bunch of things from this build (main reason why I do WIP threads, BTW ) The build: the idea was to use the HASEGAWA F-4J kit as a base, being it the best rendition of the mighty Phantom in this scale (the J because it's much easier to source it as opposed to the HASE C or D kits), and spice it up using some details from the MONOGRAM F-4C/D kit (unsurpassed details for a plastic injection kit this scale, IMHO), such as: - full cockpit - tail hook - air brakes - wing tanks - gun pod - pilots! In addition, I have used: - Aires exhaust nozzles - Eduard RBF tags - Airwaves PE detail set for the canopies and: - specific SANDY BAY-BEE decals (donated by Gene K) - Phantom stencils (donated by Phantom61) - resin MK82 bombs and TERs (donated by Gene K) The biggest task of the thing, though, was to try and use Gene's method for the seamless intakes (later for that, but in my WIP thread there's a very detailed SBS) Enough blah-blah, here are the pics (I'll break them down in two posts, since they're many) There was some scratch building involved too, such as the boarding ladder you can see in the above pic Tail area detail, showing the Monogram tail hook Some details added inside the canopies: canopy breaker tools, magnetic variations placards And here is a shot of the seamless intake: Some interior details An in progress shot of the cockpit Weathering details on the ailerons/wing area The AAR door was rescribed, as it's located differently on the J versions Wingtip lights: Stabilator weathering Airscoop detail: the kit ones were carved out, to give a more three-dimensional look. AoA probe is scrtach-built, too, using a brass rod Exhaust detail, sorry for the pic Next post for more details and the underside.
