Thanks buddy.....

 

Thanks also Derek, for that link, I had already found it, but am always grateful for your (or anyone else's) help to locate info.

 

Which brings me to this...

I have searched everywhere and cant find any images of what is inside this door.  Being partially open, I want to detail it

Any help very appreciated

 

Cheers Anthony

Great start Anthony!  I could never understand all the attraction of the British Spey Phantoms, since I assumed wrongly, it was just a regular Phantom with Rolls Royce engines in Britain.  Big deal.  All of the changes you have noted are very significant, however, so I am now a fan and I know your work will be, as the British often say, "Brilliant".  I will be watching this build closely from now on.

 

Cheers,

Chuck

Anthony

It may be worth mentioning that the recent Airfix FG1 Phantom kit was LIDAR scanned and may be worth getting as a reference.

While it has been criticised for lacking some important detail, from a shapes point of view, I haven't seen anything glaringly

wrong from any of the dozen or so builds I've looked at.

 

I keep hoping they have the missing details in a separate file somewhere that they'll incorporate in a 1/48th version.

Good show, Anthony.  Lots of exhaustive research done on this aircraft.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

 

Thanks Mark

Lots of people have done lots of research on the British Phantom, I am just trying to piece it all together to make this as accurate as I can in this scale.
