A week into the GB and I've finished deliberating about which of my numerous fails will get another chance. What I really need is a KUTA of KUTA GB. I've dragged out the Matchbox Spitfire First started in the &5th anniversary GB and being in memory of my Dad it's a long overdue commemoration. AND it was a Christmas present from my children many years ago, so that should add up to KUTA enough and this time I'm really going to do it! Be that as it may, my resolve is flagging already; I'd forgotten just how much of a child of its time the moulds are- at least the sink marks on the bottom of the fuselage are symmetrical. So, it's going to be a very basic out of the box build as the many defects in this kit are listed elsewhere and there's better modellers than me spent a lot of time to correct those. Next is the inevitable head-scratching trying to work out what I'd done and why and just how much of it was necessary! As dad was a mechanic rather than a pilot I'll probably leave all the hatches etc open to show what he worked with plus it'll save the problem later of how many of those same hatches don't fit. Per ardu ad astra, I'm going to do it!!
Originally I intended to build this one as a Russian two-seat artillery observer, which would also take care of the problematic fuselage spine. In the end I just made a (relatively) quick build of it. It did receive some new wheels, a new prop and the cockpit was reworked.

Hi, I start building Fujimi Fg.1 and Revell F-4F phantoms about a year ago, and the plan was trying to do a WIP of the build.. which you can see on the link I failed miserably. The build is heavily influenced by @giemme's amazing phantom builds. @Gene K intake are also use, and this build wouldn't be happening if without his help and of course his intake patterns.. I also received many helps from other BM members who provide me with info regarding the subjects... Thanks guys! Fujimi 1/72 F-4 Phantom II Fg.1 Revell 1/72 F-4F Phantom II The Phantom on the background is Hasegawa 1/72 RF-4E which I also finished after being the shelf queen since 2008ish... Partially detailed by Eduard F-4E PE set. My wife think I had enough Phantom.... Cheers, Mario
Dear fellow modellers, I've started new "mini challenge", a Revell 1/144 Alpha Jet. Kit itself has a slight issues with correct shape (especially tail is "banana" shaped) and canopy is too thick - to be replaced with vacuform part. I won't deal much with inaccuracies, rather it will serve as a practice for glossy finish Let's start with wings: Clearly, some touch ups are needed on left wing. And still not sure if mixed blue color isn't too dark (on photos definitely, otherwise it's not that dark). Next, horizontal stabilizers: I've also glued fuselage together and applied putty. Waiting to fully cure before proceeding. Will keep you updated Best Regards, T
