Looking very nice Christian. Too bad that kit is no longer ava.

Christian Ristits
Is it really sold out? So it puts more pressure on me to build it smooth!
28. July 2014, 15:49
Clifford Keesler
Yes they are sold out to my dismay. But the Acadmey B anc C are still around so guess I will have to settle for that.
28. July 2014, 22:54
Christian Ristits
I think this is a good choice...the kit itself is of good quality, spend him a PE-Set for the cockpit, and its done...

Das wird sicher ein endgeiles Teil. Wünsche Dir viel Spaß beim Bau.

..."endgeiles Teil"? ... :) sehr gut, ist notiert. Ich lerne immer wieder was neues!

Thank you very much for your kind words, mates! They mean a lot to me! Just working on the paintjob...although the paint-scheme seems not so difficult, it causes some troubles to me.
2. August 2014, 15:52
Christian Ristits
Update...the main paintjob is finished...tomorrow I will paint the exhaust section and black-section on the upper fuselage... ;)
2. August 2014, 17:56
Christian Ristits
Update...what a hell of a paintjob...but I did it...I am satisfied with the result...

Christian Bruer
Hi Christian, nice result! Just wondering, do you use Tesa Krepp for masking? I always use Tamiya or Aizu masking tape not to ruin the paint work because of tackiness of other tapes. Cheers, Christian
3. August 2014, 10:31
Sven Schönyan
Hey Christian, very nice build. Do you do the painting according to the instruction?
3. August 2014, 10:55
Christian Ristits
@Christian, thank you! Yes, I indeed use a mix of revell masking and tesa krepp works well, I never had problems with it (and its cheap as well) ;)
@ Sven, if you mean the colours...I have to convert the colours in the instruction sheet (aqueos and Mr. Colour) to revell...for the main fuselage I have used Revell grey 371 with a little shot of grey 76. Undersite is white.

How did you thin the revel aqua colors?
5. August 2014, 17:39
Clifford Keesler
Looking very nice Christian. I'm jelaous LOL.
5. August 2014, 18:10
Christian Ristits
@Christian - I thin them with Revell Aqua Mix...difficult colours with 2:1...well covering colours 1:1;
@Clifford, no need to be the moment I am really struggling with soooo many stencils *lol*
5. August 2014, 18:37
Christian Ristits
Oh No! Furball has printed the access markings incorrrectly - as you can see on the pic, there is also the number of the stencil printed as stencil itself *lol* That is causing much more work...not funny ;)
5. August 2014, 20:37
Christian Ristits
Some Update...did some smooth washing and some stencils...
8. August 2014, 16:45

Roland Sachsenhofer
If we like them? Yes we do, indeed!!!
Großartig, Christian, das Modell sieht so gewaltig aus, wie es einer Phantom auch zukommt, ich bin extrem beeindruckt! Ein überaus stimmiges Modell, bei dem sich Gebrauchsspuren, Schattierungen etc. wundervoll ergänzen und nichts als übertrieben rausfällt. Fantastic build!
19. August 2014, 09:21
Christian Ristits
Roland, thank you very much for your overwhelming Feedback - that means a lot to me, and makes me motivated for my next Project! I have tried to do my best, to make a tribute to that fantastic airplane!

Hi Christian, I´m impressed how you models looks like. I really want to start my one now - unfortunately I still have enough to finish before starting something new....

AS we used to say in the Marine Corps, SH (S... Hot.) Great job. I am going to have to settle for the Acadmey F-4B,But I think it is a nice kit.
