Gentlemen, Having a really soft spot for the naval aviaition of the 1950s and 60s, adding a "Ford" to my collection was a mere formality. Since I was a kid, recularly spending some of my pocket money for Buck Danny comics, the shape of the F4D has been quite familiar to me - back then the delta-winged F4D looked so cool. TAMIYA's quarterscale F4D had been around for some years, when I eventually had the opportunity to tackle one of these kits. Douglas F4D-1, VF-213 "Blacklions", USS Lexington 1957 In order to further improve an already great kit, I added a CMK cockpit set and Eduard PEs. The kit's decals were replaced by an AeroMaster sheet - AeroMaster #48-542, "F4D-1 Skyrays Part 2" The paintjob was accomplished using Gunze Mr.HOBBY colour acrylics, applying only restrained post-shadings and subtle weathering effects. The AIM-9B Sidewinders were taken from a Hasegawa weapons set. Cheers, Erik
