Thanks guys!

 

I finally decided on a scheme for this one tonight after much pondering. I wanted to do something a bit different so I went searching through the decal drawer and came up with this:

I don't think I've seen one built in a RoKAF scheme and I love using dry-transfers whenever possible, so there you go! Not having to do that much trickier SEA camo had nothing whatsoever to do with my decision. I swear. :frantic:

Well. Long overdue for some activity on this project, eh?

 

I finally spent a few hours on it today. Here's what I got done.

 

Intakes are installed now. There is some filling and sanding to do but they went in extremely well. Better than the CE set did.

I then started on the cockpit. The resin had been washed a long time ago so all I had to do was start cutting all the pour stubs away and decide which was going to get installed pre-or-post paint.

 

I gave the side consoles a base coat of black:

Then did some basic masking. I know there'll be lots to touch-up but I wanted a base that was airbrushed on.

Then the interior grey color was applied and the masks removed:

The way this kit goes together there isn't much else that can be dome until the pit is finished and installed, so it'll be a little while with the occasional "Here's where the pit is now" updates along the way.

 

Thanks for looking!

Dave I know the Dmold intakes are nice but on my last build I went with the kit intakes and cut the inside piece out as you do for the resin intakes and glued it to the outside and sanded everything down. A little more work but I saved 40 odd bucks on the intakes and I didn't have any fit problems with the original intakles matching the side of the fuselage. They look as good as the resin intakes when done.

 

Great job so far and I look forward to following the build. :speak_cool: Are you going to tackle the raised panels?

 

Just about to start my Cutting Edge F-4B conversion. Will be VF-111 if I ever find the decals. :)

Thanks guys....

 

This poor thing has been stalled for such a long time now, along with pretty much everything in my life, :BANGHEAD2: I'm really hoping that this GB serves as a kick in the pants to get me going again. Fingers crossed...
