Big catch up on your build, excellent!

 

I wish I'd seen your Aires cockpit earlier as I had no idea what the sidewall detail looked like.

 

Absolutely agree! They are very prominent and generally get ignored.

 

Carry on the great work!

Charlie,

 

For the cockpit detail I have been using the virtual cockpit tours from the National Museum of the USAF.

This one is special to me, because as a kid I was lucky enough to sit in their F-4 sit-in cockpit exhibit many, many times.

Lots of work since the last update.  I added a panel line wash, decals, and matte finish.  I made it through almost all the stencils before I gave up on that.  I'm happy with how the decals turned out this time.  I went with markings from the 8th TFW in which Robin Olds and W.D. Lafever shot down a Mig-21 in May, 1967.  Call sign Flamingo-1.

 

Lots of little bits left to go, but I am done with the fuel tanks, pylons, TER's, MER, and most of the canopy painting.
