  1. Cracked main canopy on mine also…waiting to hear back from Border and HobbyEasy, both of which were notified.
  2. Another masterpiece. And another entertaining and informative build log. Well done!
  3. Another stunning masterpiece! Beautiful work. Rich
  4. Another view of the F-4C APR-25 antenna fairing…”pointy” from this angle. From the SVSM’s walkaround gallery.
  5. Patience and perseverance are necessary to see one through a project so involved as this. You also bring considerable talent to the table (bench?). Quite a stunning model to behold. Bravo, Rich
  6. Stunning and dynamic presentation! Congratulations on a suer-impressive build. Rich
  7. Comments by the author on the ARC Sponsors Forum suggest it won’t be published anytime soon, if at all, at least in printed form.
  8. Scott Wilson, a Phantom maintainer and modeler, has this walkaround spread over on the ARC website. It features several pictures of both crew stations with seats removed. I believe the subject is the F-4E, but most of the bulkhead details differ little between variants.
  9. I didn’t see any LSP subjects. Or did I miss something?
  10. Forgive the thread drift…but I’m curious Jack, what type of glue/cement did you use to attach the formed styrene skin to the wooden core? Rich
  11. I’ve had good luck tightly wrapping small gauge strip styrene or stretched sprue around a rigid form, such as brass tubing, securing it in place with a layer of cellophane tape and then submerging the assemblage into a pot of boiling water for 10 to 15 seconds, followed immediately by a bath in cold water. After this tempering and quenching process, the plastic holds its new shape quite well. I use it to create circumferential “weld beads” for aircraft fuel tanks, for example.
  12. Aha, got it. Thanks for the explanation Peter.
  13. Was it not officially the F-110A, for at least a few months, until the Tri-Service Aircraft Designation System was introduced in September ‘62?
