F-4J VMFA-115 "Silver Eagle" - 1/32 Tamiya

Good evening LSP friends; finally the phantom is completed and posted in the gallery. Needless to summarize the whole thing, I just say that the dated kit is not exactly a pleasure ride. The aftermarket did not lack to enrich the model. I used the technique of black basing and if I'm honest in the end I was satisfied especially for the subsequent treatments that have returned to that pile of gray a little "life". The AoA decals behaved very well: thin and resistant and did not fear the aggressive Mr Mark Softer. I also added the fuse and igniter on the Snakeyes. For those who want to take inspiration on the work done I invite you to revisit the wip ( https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/87608-f-4j-vmfa-115-silver-eagle-132-tamiya-home-made-decals-result/ ).
Away with the pictures taken a little with the cell phone than with the Nikon

I hope the images aren't too many :D

Well, I hope I haven't bored you with all these pictures but the Phantom, good or bad it came, is still the KING of the USMC.
Thanks guys and I hope you like the model.

Happy Holiday

Absolutely beautiful!  Love everything about your build, even the weathering, especially the dirtied area mid fuselage where access panels are and the ground crew/engineers have climbed up and down on.

 

Well done on an awesome Aircraft and sharing your build process!

 

Cheers

Anthony

Holy moley that's great!!

ohhh thank you thank you thank you friends of LSP, I'm glad you liked the model. I'd like to make the F-18 Hornet  single seat and round air intakes (:D) in 1/32 scale. Which kit do you recommend?

thanks again to all :D

Hi Cicciuzzo,

 

The best kit to build the F-18 you're looking for is the Academy F/A-18.  There are a couple of boxings of the Hornet in the Single Seater version so best to check which particular Hornet you want to build with the available kits.  HTH :)
