Michael Phillips Thanks John and and Kerry! Your kind words are truly appreciated. This was a fun kit to build despite it's shortcomings and questionable engineering in places.
27. April 2018 at 03:07:39
Clifford Keesler Beatiful model Michael, you did an outstanding job. Well done mate.
28. April 2018 at 22:58:52
Kaju Stas Exceptional work - absolutely wonderful!
15. January at 19:05:10
Kerry Cox Yes. You have captured the essence of this bird in the weathering and general 'ware and tare'.
Most impressive indeed. :)
15. January at 19:26:05
Neuling Einfach schön!

Johne 69 Perfect
14. January at 14:25:53
Michael Phillips Thanks Alistair, Michael, Adam, Sören, Jos, Francky, playtime, Murad, and Johne!

I really am glad I could do this majestic and beautiful aircraft justice, and am glad to hear so many of you agree. :)

Thanks Jos! I am super excited, 3 more days until I leave! My next project will have to wait until February to start.

Martien Lourens Excellent work. Also the exhaust section.
09. January at 20:45:33
bughunter Great work, like it
09. January at 20:59:23
Michael Phillips Thanks Martien and bughunter!

Clifford, I used Gunze Aqueous H335 Medium Seagray for the overall coat. I had read H337 was a good match as well, but I decided to go with the slightly darker and "less blueish" H335. For comparison, the H337 is the dark gray color from my previous build, the Heater-Ferris F-4S.

Unlike almost all other Flankers, the Malaysian scheme is entirely one color top and bottom, which is kinda cool.
09. January at 21:40:37
Michael Prator Wow ... fantastic job
09. January at 22:12:05
Erik Leijdens Amazing....! Mean looking Flanker!
09. January at 22:13:40
Spanjaard amazing indeed
09. January at 22:28:59
Michael Phillips Thanks Michael, Erik, and Spanjaard! This one is ALMOST done, just gotta finish the canopy detail and add a couple probes and doodads and that's it. I might finish tonight, as least that's the plan. :)

Once again, thanks to everyone that followed along, as well as commenting and contributing!

10. January at 18:15:20
Clifford Keesler Thanks for the color. I got my J-11 painted today. It is Tamiya IJN grey on the undersides, and Blue grey on top. MM Dark Ghost Grey with a few drops of dark blue added.

Maciej Bellos That's pretty far down the road...
02. January at 15:57:09
daemion trust me, GWH is absolutely genius!!
07. January at 07:58:25
Michael Phillips Yeah, Maciej, it sure is. At my current build pace, it will be about 15 years. LOL But, I do have another GWH Su-35 higher up the queue, and either one could always be elevated on a whim.

Daemion, I am really looking forward to building one. If I hadn't built the KH Su-35 somewhat recently, I would already be building this one. :)

Michael Phillips
I am not quite sure if this is the place for this, but I just learned some very sad news. Mate "Rex" (RexTN) passed away two days ago. He was just part of a lively discussion on my recent F-4S build thread, so this is quite shocking and heartbreaking. He was a foremost authority on all things NavAir, Colors, F-4, A-4, and kits of these aircraft in 1/72.

He will be greatly missed, and the modeling world is a little darker place today.

RexTN

RIP Rex,,,,,,

Michael Phillips Thanks Jos and potez! The camo was tedious and labor intensive to do, but was well worth it in the end.

Donald, I feel ya! I will someday do a JA interceptor Viggen, and it will definitely be in the gray scheme. One of these "Fields and Meadows" camo schemes in my collection is enough! LOL
