Good show - even getting the spacing consistent:)

Thanks buddy, that spacing isnt easy, and there are a thousand little triangles in the carpet around where I work!

Incredible work on that intake edge!

Thanks Marcel, glad you noticed, as that front shape of the top of the intake changes shape on the Spey intakes

 

Cheers guys!

 

Hope to have this top section finished by the days end

 

Cheers Anthony

So...I just saw this pic in a former airedales group I’m in. They were all talking about the heat put out by the F-4K during cross deck ops. Thought it worthy of sharing...absolutely brilliant shot. Love the plane guard hanging out like it’s no big deal. That double extension nose strut just blows me away every time I see it. The stroke of that cat shot had to be intense!

Fabulous effort mate.  Looking forward to some bit glued together so we can see a larger combined effort.  What a cracking build going on here.  

 

Signed freezing to death in Memphis.

 

P.S noticed Gloria Lyons is going together in John's hangar?  How cool is that.

Thanks Peter, yes I know, thats a cracking photo.  All those launch photos impress me of the 'K's' on Ark Royal.  In fact I am struggling not to do my model in these colours when the fintip RWR was fitted, trouble is it would mean snapping off my ILS/VOR Antennas off the fin and I really like the look with those fitted...very cool! Who knows, I may yet do this scheme.  I am trying to resist but pics like that make it difficult!

 

Thanks for sharing, and following along!

 

Well progress has been slow whilst renovations are happening around the house.  But since my last photos @Haroldintake splitter and vari ramps arrived, they are beautiful and the work him and @thierry laurent did was worth the money spent without doubt. Although I can only use the front splitter as that first stage ramp is different on Spey birds.

I have almost finished this vent off and again since the last photos I have primered with Mr Surfacer, done some trimming, replacing and refining of some clumsy looking fins and sanded back again.  I think I am close (I could possibly leave it) but some of the fins need still need refining.  In the meantime the top of the left intake is underway.

Slow progress I know but at least I am still moving forward

Those vents are amazing!  Honestly, with that pic I shared, I’ll admit to being the ignorant American-I just saw a Spey powered Phantom and thought you needed to see it—don’t change a thing! The antenna on the tail is one of those unique things about this variant and you’re knocking it out of the park.

Those vents came out looking good!  It's an exercise in patience and perseverance, but it's paying off.

Sure is an exercise in patience and perseverance.....thank you!

 

I'm going to call it done on this section now, otherwise I will never finish it and I need to remember I am constantly looking at it under a magnifier
