Hi everybody,

 

I'm trying to build a "Kurnass 2000" with the Tamiya kit.
I have to help improve, different sets coming from Isracast, Avionix, Eduard and Rhinomodels.
The rest will be in my care ... :unsure: 

 

First stage, slowly, the nose cone with the gun:

Some panels will be added,see red arrows.

The gun bay is open after cutting the cover

See you soon.

Great start on the Phantom, my all time favorite. Will be watching this one. Don't know how many times I've built this kit, love it!

This is my first Tamiya F-4, at first sight not so easy because it is so full of faults.

Not the best of Tamiya kit in 1/32 scale.

But with a bit of will....

Nice start on the nose section and gun. From what you did so far, I can say with confidence that we (views) are in for a wonderful WIP by you. So, keep up the good work :)

Nice work Babs.

The gun looks superb, very cool paintwork and additioal details. I also like that you've opened out the gills in the vent beneath the gun too. That's a neat touch.

I look forward to your next update.

 

Cheers.

Hello,

 

A little update:

 

Tailhook is a little detailed.

RHAW antennas typical on Kurnass 2000.

 

IMG_8748.jpg

 

Adhesive formation strip light are from the kit Tamiya, a good solution.

I redid the fixing washers for the panels in the area behind the engine.

With metal paint it will go, I think.

More update.

 

I open a small window on the right side of the fuselage.

Now I'll have to improve the engine area, with the duty to correct the wrong grid.

And adjust the exhaust nozzles from CAM, that I started to paint.
