F-4S Phantom VF-202 1986 (Italeri 1/72)


Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

 

Another one in progress build (in total there are 12...), this time is the F-4S Phantom in 1/72.

I chose to start with the kit of Italeri instead of the one from Hasegawa because I wanted to experiment with this old kit and to scribe it, detail it etc etc.  

For the hasegawa double kits that I also have, there are in my stash a few aftermarket details (cockpits, exhausts etc), so, It will be far easier build when I"ll start with those ones.

Wow! And you say you’re just experimenting, before doing a more serious build with the Hasegawa kit?

Black Mamba and Billn53 thank you for your nice words!!

 

Bill, I prefer to build the worst kits of my stash first for experience and later in my life to enjoy the greatest ones. 🙂

An "ULTIMATE" upgrade of a mediocre kit!! Simply astounding.

 

As well as your modeling prowess, I appreciate your photo documentation ... which obviously took a lot of time and effort.

 

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Hi Nontas,

 

now, this is real modelling!!! Fantastic patience and know-how! 

I don't have either of them...

A fascinating WIP. Congratulations, and keep having fun.

Next step in the build will be the pseudo-intakes and painting...I hope it will be nice at the end.

Awesome! That hardly looks like the Italeri kit anymore, and that's a compliment. ;) 

 

Cheers,
