Phantastic..

I like the Spook tail art work. Maybe as well as substituting ph for f each build should pheature an image of the spook at some point in the build log. Given he's such a part of Phantom Culture???

Seems the GB thread is up. Will have to get G1 to move this over. Glad you're getting to build this one K2.

Thanks K1 - It's going to be a beast. Quite a lot bigger than the other aircrapht I have built... it's been a while actually, so should be a bit of phun. Was quite cool looking through it all last night :) Honestly, the paint job on the Missouri shouldn't take me long, so I think I should be on to this next week :)

Be interesting to see the size comparison to the PH-15. Both are big chunks of metal.

Took me too long to realise what a PH-15 was hahahaha. Yeah, I really have to get on to, and phinish that one... Might have to wait until aphter Cambridge at this point.

I'll do some comparison shots once I have put it together

Agreed

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

Very nice mate. Dry brushing has really bought the details out nicely

Cheers guys :)

Now, looking at this, there are no seatbelt options at all... I guess it's meant to be filled with the Pilots... which I'm not overly keen on doing...

Anyone have any suggestions out there for belts for this aircraft?

Belts made from Lead foil, or folded Tamiya masking tape?

I was thinking that, but the modern belts are quite complicated compared to the wwii ones. I might just miss it, it's ok... the paint work on the body is going to be what draws the eye :)

Another trick you can do if you haven't got to putting the rear instrument panel is the back of it is empty but can be seen through the centre canopy section. Some round section plastic rod (of a couple of different sizes) and some wire etc can replicate the back of the instrument panel and busy the area up a lot.

Well, I have installed them with a bit of CA - but I might be able to pull them off without too much problems... will see what I can do anyways. If not it's ok :) More trying to get it done so I can get onto other GB's :)

Not too stressed, as stated earlier, I think the paint job on the outside, and the weathering is what is going to get this one standing out :)

All good. Don't stress it, the side windows are so tiny anyway you wont notice. I wasn't going to bother with mine as like you I need to just get them built...

Been crook this week, and been trying to model so I'm not sitting there doing nothing. So I have put the phuselage together, and have added some weights into the phront. Instructions don't say so... but I didn't want to take the chance.

Wings have been glued together as well... but not on the body yet.. close to being on - the whole thing is close to primer actually! Just making sure it's all where it has to be lol

few pics

Cockpit installed - seats removed until after I have painted it. Canopy is going to be open


Taking shape here, really like the 48th scale size


Blu-tac weights in the front, packed in pretty hard - also in the nose cone.

Crappy pics - but this is as far as I got last night before the primer decided it didn't like my airbrush, got all clogged up and turned to S*&t... bloody hell... but I have been given some advise, so will be trying it again to get it fully primed tonight..

For anyone that's curious, it's the Vallejo Acrylic primer - just seems to dry up on the needle as I'm spraying it within a couple of seconds.. I've been told to increase the psi a heap and it helps.. so wish me luck!!

Couple of pics.
