Hi Guy's,

 

time to start my next project. The Tamiya F-4J Phantom, in the colors of VMFA-451.

I will use the Marines boxing, but still i need to make some extra Mk.82 bomb's, which will be done in the next week's.

I have all ready a load of aftermarket stuff which consist of the BigEd set, the Flightpath resin nose cone, Q-M-T resin weighted wheels, Eduard Brassin ejection seat's and Master pito tubes.

I ordered the Zotz decals 'Colorful F-4J Phantoms part two' which will be delivered within a few day's.

And also some GT-resin stuff is on it's way, thank's to Mark31 :speak_cool:

 

Besides the GT-resin stuff i will not use any other resin part's. PE will be mostly used together with scratch-build items.

 

Stay tuned. :punk:

 

Greetz

No need to tell me to "stay tuned"...    :whistle:

 

I was already looking forward to this one and it seems You've got Your initial bases covered. Nice choice of livery and I'm sure this one will turn out sweet. Please don't hold back on pic's during the WIP since I've got my note-book at the ready...

 

Regards Rudy.

Stay tuned Ruud...... :evil_laugh:

 

As i always have the intention to buy to much aftermarket stuff which after all i don't use, i thought to myself, why don't go with the basic thing's and scratch other stuff like the good old day's. :mental:

 

So stay tuned for more photo's.

More than happy to take XL517 (Big-Ed) off Your hands in case You're not going to use them, or after You have finished the build...

 

Regards Rudy.

I'm a little curious how these will do. It would take a lot of work of my hands regarding decaling these tiny markings. Used or not, from the moment i used them i'm happy to send them Ruud.

Thank's Chris for hopping onto the wagon :speak_cool:

I hope that this will be a trouble free build. I had my share with the last two builds.

Great project, and a very healthy looking collection of after market sets to jazz it up. I'm looking forward to seeing this build.

Nice!

Really nice looking subject Danny.  Ive got a VMF 321 anniversary Phantom to make that looks very similar.  This is one purty scheme!    Will be tagging along for sure

Thank's Brian for hopping in. Indeed VMF-312 color scheme resembles the one i'm using. :thumbsup:

First step's are made, starting with the Mk.82 bomb's. Cleaning and glueing.

Question here, is it necessary to place all bomb's on the TER's and MER's or can it be done with the number provided in the kit??

 

Also TER's and MER's are assembled.

TER's are modified with some scratch extra's.
