Finally got it outside to paint, making a ton of progress--

I can't believe how much I've glued to the lower fuselage and still have Sidewinder and pylons, TERs, Aim-7s, ECM pod, and bombs . . .

Nice progress!

 

The red U/C doors are a nice contrast and not often seen in pictures or builds. Usually it is just boring white.

This afternoons update--

 

 Loaded up the belly of the beast: missiles, bombs, ECM pod; now it's ready to inflict some damage. Tires, ladder, few other pieces installed too.

 

I would provide a picture but all that gloss white made it hard to take a decent one.

Artistic license with the red gear & inside gear doors? Gear is gloss white & only the edge of the inside of the gear doors is painted red. Also, Naval Phantoms did not use external ECM pods like the USAF. Just some friendly observations. Not bashing you. Respectfully. 

 

Semper Fi,

VF-143's 69-70 Connie cruise had some odd red/orange colored gear and door interiors. Some photos and discussion on BM:

I happen to be working on a Puking Dog from 143 of Engine Eddie Davidson, USS Constellation, 200 missions!

You've done good on this one!
