I'll be following this.  I'm currently finishing up a Luftwaffe Norm 72 RF-4E myself in the Specialist GB.  :cheers:

Hi,

 

this brings back nice memories of the first F-4 I ever built. Oh so long ago.

Unlike you, I chose the RF-4C version ad loves every second of the build.

I have religiously kept the Luftwaffe decals in case I find an RF-4E to build one day...

No luck so far.

Have a lot of fun!

Slow progress, but this is where we are now.  Photo nose fitted, and some fettling.

Looks good Tim, I started one of these many years ago and never finished it. So you use white paint to check for seams?

Tippex correction fluid,to fill the gaps.

This has been rubbed off with a spirit-rag.

Airbrushed topside today.

RAL7012, equates to Humbrol 79 - which I've not got. 

Also equates to Revell 77 which I've got two tins of.

Strange as the only Revell paint I ever remember buying is matt black, during a Humbrol drought.

And today my airbrush has well and truly reminded me why I never buy Revell paint.

I have only every bought 2 tins of the Revell paint and found out quickly I does not like to be easily cleaned and reacts awfully if you are using other brands with it.

 

I also found it spayed with a 'furry' finish.

Onwards and upwards.

Masked last night. I do like the straight lines of this scheme.

And airbrushed Humbrol 155 earlier this morning.  Very much easier 🙂

It's now setting in the sun, whilst I'm enjoying a cappuccino.

Much cursing around that central fuselage grey area, paint lifted, followed by brush repaint.

Thats not to bad, it looks like a maintenance touch up.
