Hey guys,

just a quick show to let you know that this one is still on and almost done.

 

Decided to used Ultra-Matt Lucky varnish from Mig for my final coat, very easy to use but, Oh boy.... it's way too flat..

it almost look like a tank.... :doh:

 

Here some picture with different lighting.....,they were never that flat in real life...

an even finish and very smooth but way too flat.

So now I'm waiting the other varnish I ordered from Mig and tone up that finish..... 

and these days with that Covid, delivery is a PITA, and seems to takes forever.

 

See you soon with more, hope you like and have fun.

Thanks to members help, I was able to tone down my flat finish by spraying TS-80 Tamiya Flat clear coat 

and planning to add a little sheene with an old T-shirt and wool......

Was done with the paint, and time for the metal part.... and tape......lol.

Wonderful.  One of my favorite Phantom schemes.

Did you make this tool?  And if so, could you explain how you made the slide mechanism?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

 

Hey Mark,

It's basically a Quick bar clamp, you'll need two of those, the sliding part is the end part of the clamp that I rearrange to hold my srcibber.

 

You'll find more info in my Mig-23 WIP on page 4...

If you have more question, don't esitate to ask.

Dan.

The only thing left to do is gluing  the canopys, a little bit of dirt and ''VOILA !''

Down to photo shoot..... sometime this week-end to the RFI.  B)

 

Dan,

 

Excellent and stunning in that scheme! I have the same plan for my F-4D, and an F-14A as well.
