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?

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.

Oh man, what a shame. Hope it won't take too much to rectify.

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.

Looks good Tim, those markings look so big compared to those worn later in their life.
