Looking good!

The sharkmouth on the recce pod certainly adds something.

If you can't find the ejection handles then drop me a PM....

Q

Hiya

 

Thanks buddy - I'm not sure if its me or the decals but I've had a bit of a nightmare getting them to stick to the model and when they do they have tended to silver quite badly.

Thanks you for the offer of the ejector handles but I managed to find the rogue piece.

Hi Iain, I don’t know how I managed to miss this splendid build until now, but I did.

Can I ask what you used for the ‘ golden brown ‘ of the seat harnesses? I’ve built three late model MB seats lately and still have to get the colour right.

 

Stay safe.

Hi John

 

thanks for the kind comments mate I appreciate it! For the seats I used oil paints and mixed the colour by eye HTH.

Great work Iain. 

 

I love it. I must dig out mine and get it built. 

 

Look forward to to seeing the next one.

Hi James 

 

Thanks mate, the Revell/Hasegawa kit really does build up-to be a fine rendition of a Phantom and it really is easy to build with very few vices. So go on do your self a favour and stick some bits together 😎👍

Now that’s what I call a proper Phantom, green and grey.

 

John

Hi John - thanks you - and I agree Phantoms in green / grey are just awesome!

 

Gents thank you very much for you kind words, it makes the past 10 months knocking it together worth while.

 

Cheers
