  1. Looking awesome as your paint work always does! Good luck with the surgery!!
  2. That shark mouth looks very cool, and the weathering is spot on!
  3. Awesome work Chuck! I always learn from ready your build thread, this time on how you mask before paint. Thanks! And now I think we’re all ready to see another masterpiece paint job performed!
  4. I’m currently working on the same kit as a f-4J, and looking at your work here Ben, I can see the extra work you’ve done on the fuselage. I particularly like the vents near the jet exhaust, very nice work! And the cockpit is just incredible! Without turning this into a phantom build thread, can I ask if that’s the Aires or Avionix cockpit with modifications to the qf-4 and what intake set have you used?
  5. The Aires set has great detail, but as previously stated, they’re undersized. Currently I’m working on a VMFA 235 Death Angels build and I’ve got the Eduard Brassin set, which has awesome detail and what looks to be correct size.
  6. For research and reference material, I think the Daco- uncovering the f-a-18 a,b,c,d is the top book on the subject. There’s plenty of aftermarket for this beast, and I also agree with Marcel on the intakes, I’ve used the d mold set, and now they also make a replacement piece for the top of the ‘spine’ of the aircraft. Have fun with the build!
  7. I’ve always struggled with good realistic looking metals. But now I’ve found the AK xtreme metal, it’s pre thinned, shake it up, drop it in the airbrush and let paint fly! I love it!
  8. I can see one of these Kitty Hawk kits in my future, and this build will be more helpful than the kit instructions! Amazing work going on here!
  9. Absolutely love it! I’d really like to see some photos of the cockpit. But what a great job!
  10. Thanks for the interest in this build. Chuck I’ve been going through your build thread for the last few weeks, the information you put in your threads is awesome, also I’m wrapped you put the link in, it’ll be very quick and easy for me to search on your build, thanks! Mark you must have access to a wealth of reference material from you neighbour. I couldn’t imagine putting that amount of work in to a 1/32 kit and give it away! Being he was a crew chief, no doubt he appreciates it though!
  11. I've been needing a fresh start, so here it is, my F-15 E, with as much aftermarket gear as I could find! There's still a few things to get, but I have most of it, so I'm making a start. As you can see I've got the Eduard photo etch, an Avionix cockpit, some resin gear from GT resin, a set of sidewinders from Zactomodels, aim 120's still to come, decals from Speed Hunter Graphics and the exhausts from KA models. The exhausts are next level, expensive, but having got them, they'll be a must have for every F-15 I build from now on. They just need a good paint job, gues
  12. I’ve found black planes are hard to get a realistic finish on, but you’ve nailed it! Awesome looking plane and it’s something different!
  13. That’s a mountain of aftermarket gear for a great looking jet! I’ll be following this build for sure
  14. This will be awesome to follow
