Hi, My name is Richie and I love the smell of burnt kerosene. Having spent many hours viewing the absolute masterpieces on this site and trying to hoover up as much inspiration as I can, Iâ€™ve decided to take the plunge and commit my effort to the wider community in an attempt to improve my game. As way of background I suffer from: a - an over-ambitious build programme that would require the invention of time travel to complete my collection. b - a lack of resistance to nice new shiny decals (that adds to the first issue). c - an inability to recognise that OOB is just fine in most cases. d - the view that 50 Shades of Grey is the epitome of panel weathering. e - a lack of sufficient minutes in the day to fit everything in (work, family, plastic fettling etc) I am also an Optimistic 80%er. By that I mean I will endeavour to add detail/changes when it makes a noticeable difference but lack of skills / patience may ultimately limit my AMS ambition to a level of â€˜Good Enoughâ€™. And so to the challenge, a 1/32 Revell F-4E. This is going to be only my 2nd 1/32 effort, the first being a Revell Hawk T1, but my first on-line build. Not entirely sure of the markings yet but it will probably be an early USAFE bird in Vietnam c/s. True to form I have acquired more aftermarket stuff than I really need including: - GT Resin Intakes and Exhausts - SH replacement nose - CE Aim 9J/P - Legend F-4E Cockpit - Eduard PE - Master Details Pilot figure - Master Pitot Probes As if first night nerves wasn't enough, it will also be the first time I have used a lot of this stuff and just to make it more interesting Iâ€™m going to put her in flight and light her up. This may get ugly. For those who like their builds quick and dirty, sorry but this is going to be a slow burn (but probably dirty!). Very happy for comments, suggestions, advice etc but donâ€™t be offended if I do something different or not quite true to life, as they say art is in the eye of the beholder. Oh, and as a cautionary tale to others I will also be keeping an catalogue of errors of all the mistakes I make. Lets hope it stays in double figures! Game on.
