The 1989 movie, "Slipstream" with Bill Paxton and Mark Hamill had one of these in it. Really nice kit! Great job!

Haha... This seemed like the most effective way to get several G.91's in 1/144 scale. I've got another project besides this one in mind as well, so it seemed prudent to spend most of my energy on the design of the 3D STL file. I got one online, but had to adapt it to make it 3D print ready and include a workable cockpit.

The reason I gave it a coat of plastic putty is because I have a relatively cheap resin printer and on the curves it often gets a bit pixelated. That leaves the end result with a noticeable "grain" to it. The plastic putty basically just catches in the grooves between the levels and creates a smooth gradient. After the putty dries, I used 1000 grit sandpaper to just rub off the excess. The trick is that it gets into the panel lines as well. So I've been trying to clear out the panel lines out as well.

I think I have what is left of that decal sheet, you sent it to me to use on my Kitty Hawk Jag. And I have another one that I will use the remainder on.

I'm very glad to see yours colorful Phantom. Very well done especially the different shades of IO and the grey. 🙂.P.S. ich finde, dass die "alten Bausätze" mit ihren erhabeneren Gravuren durchaus mit einem gewissen Charme haben.

I can answer my own question now, I found sprue photos at an online store. There is a sprue with chrome parts in the kit, wheel rims and other stuff. I had hoped to avoid using chemicals. 🙁

Bozzer
Mate, just to add...
You can remove the chrome, or touch it up with Molotow. However, Italeri chrome is covered by a clear coat. I've made comments on how to remove this, in the past. I did put a fair amount of effort into the research and results. However, this is currently a rare and hard to find kit. I'd consider any options carefully, my friend. Parts of this kit, are unique to this kit alone. You will definitely struggle, to replace some of them

Munky Thank you. 🙂 The blue is actually 2 different Testors metallic blue enamels mixed together and airbrushed. I like the results so much I bought a bunch of other colors to spray.

No doubt it will be a huge inspiration to all those 'Phantom' freaks who have an on going love affair with the most grunty and meaningful air fighters of our time. (BTW Gareth) I have plenty of spare 1/48 scale stencil decal sheets, if you want them, left over from my crash and burn build I never finished before painting a while back. (Hasegawa) 👍 🙂
