Another F-4 crops up, this is a 43 Sqn FG.1 from circa 1970, the well documented XV574. Remember the photo being on the cover of an issue of Airfix Magazine back in the day, stalking a Soviet 'Bear'. From the currently still running STGB . Fujimi 'Silver Jubilee' boxing. OOB, I had to carve away the electronics fairing off the Tail-fin. Xtradecal markings, Eduard 'Brassin' Sidewinders, PJ Products Pilots. Xtracrylic's paints airbrushed over Ultimate Grey Primer. By no means perfect, I still have trouble airbrushing these particular paints, but happy with the overall finish. I did weather the bottom a bit, but it doesn't really show in the photo's, was a bit scared to go over the top even though photo's show they get really dirty underneath! Comments and queries welcome. Davey.
Hi all, a long term project of mine is building one of Ark Royal's Phantoms using the Hasegawa RAF FG.1 kit (P17) and an old Model Alliance decal set. Now what about the correct stencils? Hobbydecal did a dedicated set of dry transfers but despite their website showing plenty available they seem to have gone out of business long ago. Is it possible to use the black stencils from Revell's FGR.2 reissue? Are there differences compared to the FG.1 stencils I should take care of? On photos I did notice white stencilling on the FG.1's intake ramps and black walkway areas (?) on top of the fuselage which the Revell decals lack. Cheers Chris
