Well just thought I'd show this one almost completed. Just needs a canopy and some Sidewinders.

Nice looking Phantom.  I like the weathering.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

That is some really nice work right there, the details on the weathering is just intense.

The flash brought the white in the decals out to much. They had a coat of Future mixed with the base colour added (extra dark sea grey) sprayed over them before the flat coat to blend them in.



She is a real looker!  :wub: Beautiful job on this one  :thumbsup:

Is there anything that looks more properly Naval than a Phantom in Royal Navy colours ? I think not !

I'd leave the 'winders off. The mode looks simply superb as it is, and unless you've got the correct type from the Hasegawa weaps set (D/H), adding them may detract from an otherwise excellent model...... just my opinion of course, you do what you feel is right.

Did I mention that's an outstanding model......
