Christian Ristits 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.

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

Sven Schönyan Hey Christian, very nice build. Do you do the painting according to the instruction?

Christian Ristits @Christian, thank you! Yes, I indeed use a mix of revell masking and tesa krepp tape...it 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.
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 jelaous...at the moment I am really struggling with soooo many stencils *lol*

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
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!

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!

Sven Schönyan 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....
