  1. Hello guys... Here is my work, done for my great friend, Renzo Bortolotto, dedicated to my favorite airplane... UK obviously I used a Fujimi 1/72 box and OOB builds Cheers for looking ciao Silvano
  2. Some cockpit pics from FGR.2 XV424 which is in the RAF museum at Hendon. Pics from Frank Bell. Julien
  3. Announced (sort of) on their FB page. https://www.facebook.com/Hong-Kong-Models-Co-Ltd-1375731456009809/timeline/ Cheers, Andrew
  4. With the new Airfix kit out and the option of a cat launch pose oob (have a Fujimi kit and lots of resin in the stash for years for this project too...) What is the BM collective's opinion for suitable 1970 to 78 crew figures? Cant have it ready to shoot off the deck with no one on board!
  5. Ok i started this build back in July and had to shelve it temporarily due to paint shortages through mid August. But Im going to consider this done with the exception of some Do not step decals and weathering. I should add these were the worst decals I’ve dealt with in 30 + years of model building. The glue was so thick everytime i worked with the decals it felt like my hands were covered in vaseline. Mind you i work with water in the 120+ degree range. I know how to work with Japanese decals. They were so slimy and did not want to work to well. I had two complete sets of original decals to work with i was able to save just two each of the white base and red field “omega” tail decals. The glue i blame on hasegawa the bad decals due to improper storage. This is one of many kits i was given by a friend who cleared out his storage unit stash. He didn't want to transport them 1000 miles so i was allowed to take anything i wanted. Thank you my friend. So without further boring you with a long write-up i give you my Fg.1 Phantom Circa 1975-1976 Ark Royal Cruise. The original teaser photo And the rest pf the photo’s. Ok some detail shots first up is the spey engine i used real foil stained with cooked eggs. To this i stained it further by adding some blue and copper tones drybrushed onto the foil. And the cockpit’s The eagle eyed among you will have spotted the Two different drop tank paint schemes. Thats done on purpose. During my research one of the members directed me to the Ark Royal’s Cruise books and when digging throught the assorted photo’s i found this photo i reprint here giving full credit to the Ark Royal crews and association. If you look closely i duplicated this pattern. I found everything from all white to all Dark sea Grey to mixed variations. So I lay my self on the Forums bench and await your decision if it meets the criteria for an Fg.1 Phantom from #892 Squadron. I’d like to add Great Thank You’s to all the members that gave me helpful advice in my Cold war question thread. This was a duel build with my EE F.3 Lightning. If anyone is interested here is a link to view that RFI. I say Thank You in Advance Dennis
  6. The Phantom FG.1 pre production airframe XT597 (currently for sale at Everett Aero) was used by the A&AEE from 'birth' until retirement. She conducted the sea trials on the USS Saratoga and later went on to clear weaponry and systems before squadron service. By 1982 she had acquired some FGR.2 outer wing panels, a Doppler 72 radar panel under the nose and an air of scruffiness about her in the pictures I can see. Having the Hasegawa 1:48 FG.1 kit and the extra correct nose for XT597 but no decals left me with a odd spare part until I got ahold of the RAM Models Early British Phantoms sheet. Having already built XT596 (currently at Yeovilton) from this set this seemed like a great opportunity. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234997445-phantom-f-4k-no2-xt596-royal-navy-a-aee/page-1 So, on to my build... Work in progress is here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235006034-phantom-fg1-148-hasegawa/page-1 The build is as accurate as I can make it, however I have added some artisitc licence. The tanks have Post Office red tips (This was a pure guess, but looks interesting) but are quite chipped and marked as by 1982 I figured the bulk of XT597's work would have been as a Tornado chase plane. For this reason I fitted an FGR.2 Strike camera in the port forward sparrow recess as it could have been used for taking film of the subject aircraft in flight. Here is a picture of the completed build, along with a picture of XT597 in her pre-rasberry ripple finish and the decal instructions...
  7. I bought from ebay a part started Phantom FG.1 with no decals and a missing canopy. So I went looking for some decals to complete it with and came across the RAM Models set, however this still left me needing stencils, so I figured a bit of artistic licence, build a very early FG.1 and use an F-4 B/N set, this would at least be in period, my thinking was the YF-4K's were painted and finished with the stencils McDonnell had available until the British specific ones were made. Sounds likely to me anyhow! The RAM models set is not cheap but they went down extremely well, nicely coloured and in register. As a nice bonus I swapped one version (700P NASU) decal set for a canopy. :-D Kit, Hasegawa 1/48 Phantom FG.1, Decals Ram Models early Phantoms, stencils KitsWorld F-4 B/C/D/N. Paints, Humbrol EDSG Enamel, Halfords white primer and all the rest by Tamiya. Built OOB apart from decals. Enjoy.
  8. Hi all, I can report it as finished. Some progress can be found at http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234965200-phantom-fg1-aka-f-4k-148/ . More pics are at http://www.kpmprosek.cz/v/panteri/mess/PhantomFG1 . Thanks for viewing. M.
  9. The weathering looks a little worse in person, but I'm still pretty proud of this one, for sure. Everything really came together for me. (I also overweathered way too much, as this photo confirms: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24101413@N03/5264040287/) Many thanks to everyone who answered my questions about stencils! I used: the older version of the Fujimi FG.1 1/72 kit; Xtracrylics (which were immensely frustrating); a combination of kit decals from a newer FG.1 boxing, the Airdoc RAF Phantom FGR.2 in Germany decals, and the Airdoc FGR.2 in Germany stencil set, suitably modified, and a Flory models wash, for the very first time. I'll probably add stores and whatnot later.
