Phantom FG.1 XV571/A of 43 Squadron, RAF, c.1982


Recommended Posts

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.

Good stuff, I don't think it is over weathered at all, they tended to get quite scruffy looking in the grey scheme.

Thats come out rather well....nice build....................however, the underwing serials weren't applied in the air defence grey schemes despite what may the decal instructions may say!

GOD DA---I had wondered about that, because I couldn't see them on any photos, but they all had danglies on their pylons, so I thought "maybe..." Arrrggh! And I worked so hard to get each of the individual letters and numbers properly aligned. Alas!

An interesting scheme and a good illustration of markings anomalies with the underwing serial still applied after changing from the gree/grey topside camo. Nice work there.
