Just in time finish for the show?! You're looking proud but a little bit tired talking to the visitors.
Ah and as replied in your WIP 👍 👍 👍
Cheers 😄

David Lengyel
Thank you very much mates 🙂

@Christian Yes, I was very tired, because I sat 24 hours straight on the bench trying to finish this. My club mates arrived in the morning and they had to wait in car in front of my house while I was gluing canopies 😄 Well, I made it after all.
21 March 2016, 06:14
Kerry COX
Can we ask how well your model went, as in applause. ?🙂 👍
21 March 2016, 06:23
Christian Bruer
I noticed you mentioned the 24 hrs session in your WIP. With the chaps just waiting in the car sounds like hard core modeling😄
I made it once finishing my USS Yorktown CV-10 for a modeling show painting and gluing approximately 400 scale 1/700 figures on the deck of the flat top the night before. Don't know how much flew of from my tweezers😄

28 March 2016, 17:07
Kerry COX
David. !! I never have a laugh at others work, and as for my success with a phantom, I have never built one I was happy with and that is why I am so pleased to see one that I can aspire to, seriously. 👍
I am ok with building kits, but it's my 'finishing off' is where I fall over, as I always seem to stuff it up somehow. 🙁

Roger Aldridge
Not sure if it is too late to ask, but how do the stencils work? Do you fit them and paint over them, then remove the protective film? Not seen these before and the results look brilliant. Thanks.

Phantastic! Most wonderful and awesome! I think, This is the one of the most beautiful Phantoms -if not the most -I have ever seen; simply a masterpiece!

Clifford Keesler
Beautiful job. I just ordered this set of markings for one of my spooks.
25 January 2018, 02:08
Donald Dickson II
Cliff, thats the great thing about that kit. You get a bunch of markings. You can use them elsewhere. I plan on doing this plane as well at some point. Just have to use the kit decals for the generic stuff.

David, great job on this!
25 January 2018, 05:27
Scott Hastings
Gosh, this is fantastic. Decals and weathering just awesome!!!
25 January 2018, 06:38
David Lengyel
Wow, thanks mates. This build is quite old now, but it still gathers such a humbling appreciation. Many thanks once again 🙂

@Adam Gudynowski It was not quite stellar, but it was not bad either. What I would highlight was the beautifully molded compressor faces. Exterior needs some rescribing and polishing, bottom side required some filling and sanding too, but it was in range of basic modelling skills I'd say.
