Hello Dears

This is not really a WiP since both the 2 ladies has been started 2 years ago !

The Rhino has appeared in some other threads and she is about to enter the paint booth !

WP_20180921_20_55_12_Pro

Now this kit has a story behind it !

A friend of mine offer that Phantom as a thanking gift !

I was on patrol with my van on a highway, I still was in the access and saw a motorcycle speeding away.

A few yards further I saw a car stopped on the left lane (We are on the continent !!)

Then I saw the biker a good 50 yards ahead of the car, lying on the ground but did'nt see the motorcycle !

Cursing a lot, I call on the Ambulance and Highway patrol, as we are trained for urgent help, I go to see if I can help the biker.

Lord, His leg was in such a poor state, but he looked almost good.

But with the integral helmet I did'nt recognize him, My van was placed in protection, I looked at the wound, reporting it to the ambulance by the cell phone

The biker then wake up, or retake conscience, and call me by my name… That's a schock Believe me !!

It was my friend, I refused to get the helmet out, not knowing if he have a wound to the head… And I stay beside him until he was transported in the ambulance.

After his recovery, he asked casually about my next buy of kit and I received it !

The only weird thing is that he told me that, When he opened his eyes, feeling that someone was taking care of him, I looked to him like an angel !!!

Me ??? An angel ?? With my face ?? Incredible and … Yes… Weird !

Don't you worry about Thierry, he was still Walking with crutch when he did buy another bike !!

Oh and we found the bike a good 100 yards ahead of the crash point, jammed Under the barriers !!

Now back to the model !

WP_20180921_20_55_25_Pro

I included a complete Aires interior, it has been deemed impossible by a French model magazine, So...:evil_laugh:

I did it, but it's not easy a task, Believe me !

WP_20180921_20_55_43_Pro

But it look far better ! Be carefull ! Aires gave us 2 types of interior, one can do a B or J Phantom

The Wheel well must be re-created

WP_20180921_20_55_59_Pro

And of course !! It will be a Jolly Rogers one !

WP_20180921_20_58_11_Pro

I must confess that I have in my stash each and any aircraft flown by the 'Blackburn's irregulars"

WP_20180921_21_00_04_Pro

So this one will not be too surprising ??? Huh ???

WP_20180921_21_02_39_Pro

Load of job and the doc are precious, especially for the Air intakes 🤔

WP_20180921_21_00_51_ProWP_20180921_21_07_06_Pro

Hi CC,

 

They are called French fries....  Meet you at dawn tomorrow.

Gee, what happened with the white sauce all over the air brakes? Does not look too healthy, but even a Demon should be partial to sand paper!

Great duo you are working on. Some of my favorite USN planes! It is going to be good!

 

Have fun!

JR

While I'm no huge fan of US Navy subjects a Phantom never fails to find my attention and the Demon is unusual enough to warrant some as well :D  I'd no idea AZ made a 48th scale kit of the latter; are the resin goodies part of the kit or seperate aftermarket parts?

This was told on purpose !!

But finally, this long aged neighbours dispute has been closed by a TV show done by both the RTBF and FR2

The fries are born in Eastern France, near the Luxemburg and German border !

So let's say French fries !:rofl2:

Thanks for the kind words Jean

Hello Col,

Yes, this is in fact the Grand Phoenix kit Under another boxing !

There are surely been some resin parts mish mash, the way it is with the Firefly Mk I

Some resin parts are missing in one or the other !!🤔

In the 2 cases I've got the 2 kits, so, they both have a full resin complement.

 

If one of you Guys are missing a resin parts on these kits Do not hesitate, if I can help !

Sincerely

CC

I must go right now, I'll answer longer at noon

Sorry

Both a Demon and a Phantom att the same time?

You know how to live a proper life CC!

I see that you managed to fit the Aires 'pit, that's quite the accomplishment. When I did my F-4C with Aires the less than stellar appearance of the cockpit sill forced the entire thing into the cupboard of Doom. I should retrieve it any Day...

Just a few words about my "Phantom curse"

In 1987, I started a 1/48 Hasegawa F4-J, I spent a lot of time on the wing tip since I folded it...

Okay, I was already a nutty modeller....

It was almost finished when it has been test flown accidentally....

From the second floor, crashing down, after having bounced from stair to stair....

I was paralysed.... I tried to see if it is possible to fix it but to no avail...

Then I bought that same kit in a modeller convention....

And someone found it tasty....:mg:

Now you know why I no longer let a kit behind me... even if so called friends are watching the stand....:whip:

That's why, I dread to finish this one...

Well.... Modelling now, it's about time !!

See you later !!

The F-86 is currently in repair depot after losing a battle with Catzilla. It has a broken off drop tank and a badly cracked canopy with one of the poor ground crew losing both arms an a foot! The other guy is hard at work though.

The Follow Me Jeep faired worse though with almost total destruction and the driver decapitated. 

I really need to fix them some day.
