Your guess is as good as mine. You need to find good reference pics of the airframe in question. But if you decide to add the pod, I don't think anyone could say if it's wrong or not. So go for it. Looking forward seeing pics of your build.
I have been mostly idle of late - I can't really explain why. I've tried a couple of other things but seem reluctant to actually finish anything this year. I've put the undercarriage and exhausts on this, but need to do some chalk pastel weathering: I have another Hellcat partly assembled - I've closed up the fuselage and assembled the wings and tail since: I thought about finishing this, but a large number of stupid fiddly bits convinced me to just leave it on the shelf of doom. In retrospect, choosing the wingfold option was a mistake. I hate models with folded wings so really should have seen this coming! I've been tinkering with this: I started butchering some plastic for another sub-assembly of brass. I managed to stab myself under a fingernail with a chisel doing this, so was not really in the mood to do more! The white plastic insert needed to dry properly too before being smoothed over.
kopperhed replied to Homebee's topic in The RumourmongerGood to see CA return. Going to wait for their next project, though.
You know the laws of modeling, by time you are ready to check the molds, you will stumble upon your lost canopies. At least I hope that is the case anyway. She looks gorgeous, I love how the panels have just enough color difference to add reality, an amazing job throughout. Anyone that only sees the finished product, won't believe how chopped up she was before the painting was done! It is a statement, what seems impossible, is possible! Looks great! Anthony
HL-10 replied to Kallisti's topic in Work In Progress - SF & RealSpaceSurprised that you haven't disappeared under a pile of sanding dust! Your perseverance is paying off. My Angel is a later casting, separate wings and intakes. Not as many bubbles, but some interesting joins to overcome. Great work.. Looking forward to watching this develop
I've got two Italeri T-45s squirrelled away, one of which at least is destined for a sheet of Draw decals CONA scheme (I like the blue tailed one. ) The other in a service scheme. @Creepy Pete, any chance of a scan of those improvements too. I know there is some work required on the wings leading edges. Steve.
Quang here is another video of the RF-101 in Vietnam: https://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675038914_Phantom-II-aircraft_cockpit_F-4_Air-Force-personnel_entry-ladder check the 1:20 mark and you can see a group that seem to be discussing some antennas on the bottom of the fuselage. Jari
