As others above have said, fantastic Phantom, especially the finish and weathering.

Beautiful Phantom, enhanced by just the right degree of tasteful weathering to make it feel like shrunk reality.

 

Inspiring, and humbling, build!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Cheers Ad`, you nearly had me there 😀

It was my fervent hope you'd get the joke.  I know everyone gets to build and paint how they want.  But I really get puzzled when I see an exceptionally well built and detailed model finished in a patchwork quilt scheme.  Now, having said that, I am sure folks can produce a photo of a real F-100F that looks like a patchwork paint job, but I've never seen the point.  It almost feels as though they enjoyed the effect and just kept going. 

 

But again, I get it and folks can weather or not weather how ever they want.  They do not need my approval for sure.  But I do like to applaud the efforts of someone who weathers realistically.  It's kinda rare.

Great job russ, I really like the camo painting and weathering, I'm gathering the bits at the moment for an academy phantom from Lakenheath,  so seeing this has  re- piqued my interest,  again well  finished

This- is - an - AWESOME PHANTOM!!!! If you have time, do you mind a quick rundown on how you did the metal tail section--sorry if I missed the WIP--nevertheless--great job--I echo those who were originally fooled into thinking this was the real thing--Best, Erwin

The best compliment I can give is that I thought it was photos of the real thing! Superb.

Ditto - I opened the thread and genuinely thought the first photo was of the real aircraft. I guess That’s about as good as it gets really. 👍
