In between Tornado warnings and the terential rain today, something four trips to the shoe cupboard and 6 inches for the past 12 hours, I managed to make the following progress.

Tub



Tub inserted into the forward fuselage

Not much experience or familiarity with the Phantom so it is gently as she goes...

I am enjoying the build and the fit is rather good save for a little challenge with one intake and a little height difference around one part of the nose. Otherwise very straight forward.

Just need to familiarize myself with my references, pick a machine and make some more progress...

Appreciate the feedback.

AGW..

that the metallic area of the tail planes are not silver they are painted a purple black colour. I used Model Master Gun metal for this as it actually has a bluey/purple tinge to it. I look forward to seeing the upper surfaces done.

I generally work in Gunze unless I am hand painting. Will see what gun chrome looks like on these surfaces which has a purple hue through it...

Appreciate very much your advice and experience...

Cheers,

Two colours down, one to go...

Has Gunze changed their recipe of late? Seems much thicker and different to apply...

Cheers,

Be mindful, if you are using the Aussie Decals one as a guide it is incorrect. Best either copy mine or get Phantom, Skyhawk & Hornet in Australian Service by Stewart Wilson and pick your aircraft scheme.

Andrew, have been using a cross between the Wilson book and your model as my guide...

While I like their decals I rarely use an instruction sheet over pictures of the real deal.

Cheers,
