Just got this one Eric will be watching with great interest.
So this is a Kinetic "Gold" kit. Would you say this is a more finely detailed plastic, or would I be wrong in thinking that. I could swear that somebody claimed that Kinetic "Gold" meant upgraded tools and improved detailing, but I still don't know for sure if this is really so.
IMO not a great kit. Not more detailed, just some more options. Soft and inconsistent panel lines. Not a great fit in certain areas, especial the wing to fuselage fit. Soft details. In this particular kit you get a lot of plastic. But a lot of parts are of former releases and can't be used. So you are left over with a lot of plastic. I bought this because I wanted a GR3 and as far as I know the Airfix kit is inferior to this kit. This kit certainly makes me think twice of buying another Kinetic kit.
That being said. I think it can be made into a decent model. So I'm sticking with it.
I did my GR3 with the body of the Tamiya FRS1 kit and the nose of the Airfix kit which turned out all right.Got this one to build a GR1.

I have tried that in the past, but I can always give it another try. Thx for the advise.
Great progress - especially like the metal & light grey & white panel contrasts - got to try this out at some point on a suitable aircraft!
Also the seat looks top notch, a really nice one with all the harnesses & color variety! 👍
Finished them at last. Lost my mojo a bit after having an accident with the gloss varnish on th F-104G. Damned fingerprint. Decided to strip it and restart. Didn't feel like taking more pictures after that. In the end it turned out all right. Not my best work. Now, finally after 35+ years in the hobby I have a couple of BAF Starfighters.
Fine result! Very beautiful builds!

Wow these 15 years are well invested !
Great spook Eric
took long, but now makes a great addition to your collection 🙂
Great job on this Phantom. Love the paintjob - is this the kit with the raised panels?
Hats off to you mate for a lovely Spook!
@Thomas, this kit came out circa 2005 and has engraved panel lines. Except for the stabilizers, they have raised panel lines. Go figure.

My latest build. Took a long time and didn't really go as planned. But in the end I got it done instead of ending on the shelf of doom. But it was a close one.
very nice job Eric!
Amazing detail work and weathering. Your efforts really paid off!
Beautiful work 👍
