Just catching up here Andy and this build is very impressive! Might have to do this conversion as well!

 

Cheers,  Tom

Thanks for  looking in Tom, it is a pretty simple conversion with just the wheel wells being a little tricky but I think I have a plan in mind now :rolleyes:

Still plugging away at this one and now have the cockpit decalled using a mix of Barracuda and Airscale

Just need to add some belts and final weathering but about there. Also managed to make a start on the wheel well adjacent as the F-4 usually had round wells

Will need to get the fuselage closed up before I can modify the side walls.

Nice work, and I’m taking notes!

Thank you Tom, it's a pretty easy conversion with the only tricky area being the wheel wells but not all F-4's had round wells! So you could just go with the kit parts if you have no images of your subject showing round wells wells. Just an idea!

As with all things 109, the wheel well configuration can be a real minefield! If your care about accuracy of your build, a reference photo can prove helpful as the manufacturer, W.Nr. and date all come into play in making the determination for round vs squared wheel wells.

Seemed to take forever to get to this point with daily life taking over but hopefully get momentum back on this build now!

Very nice work. Clean and precise. 

Thank you John, was a fight to get the ZM foot board in after everything was together but we'll worth it.

Thanks Jay, enjoyed building that one and decided to keep the weathering fairly light.

Amazing work on the cockpit. And as I started recently Trumpeters Bf-109 F-4, a kit that seems to have less in common with an actual F-4 than Revells G-2, I love watching you focussing on F-4 features here…

best regards 

Andreas
