Patrick Hagelstein Looking gooooooood!!!
15. October at 07:45:53
Erik Leijdens Really nice cockpit Michael!
15. October at 08:02:09
Michael Hickey Off to a great start mate.
15. October at 09:08:43
Michael Phillips Thanks Patrick, Erik, and Michael!

Starting to look like a Phantom now!!! I'm really enjoying this kit. Nice engineering, great fit, and fantastic details. It's nice to build a kit like this, especially after a particularly rough one previously.
16. October at 06:33:58
Marko That cockpit looks fantastic.
16. October at 06:42:53
Spanjaard strange, i was sure i joined this build before.... ok, now i am certainly in. next to Martin please.
16. October at 08:19:20
Spanjaard that cockpit is really good, no aftermarket needed :)
16. October at 08:20:01
Bryn Crandell An exiting one to watch. The Heater-Ferris scheme is something worth seeing.

Ronan Beautiful paint job, Michael ;)
09. October at 09:59:33
Michael Phillips Thanks Konrad, David, Erik, Spanjaard, Sören, Kees, Daniel, Martin, Bart, and Ronan! I really appreciate the kind words!

I will be honest, I am just really glad to be done with this one. Rescribing a full model is a real mojo killer. LOL

Martin, I agree. But it is one of those "It's so ugly that it is cool" kinda aircraft, in my opinion, at least. :)
10. October at 04:47:35
Michael Hickey Sweet build.
10. October at 05:27:20
Martin Oostrom Are you sure you're talking about the plane and not about me, Michael? ;)

Konrad Limmer Very nice work, Michael! And what a huge plane! Impressive ;)
01. October at 06:30:32
Patrick Hagelstein Thanks! And.... wow!.......
01. October at 06:37:56
Wim van der Luijt very nice Work! I have the UMM scribers too and like them a lot, they give you lots control
01. October at 08:35:02
Michael Phillips Thanks Konrad, Patrick, and Wim!

Got the base coat black on the topsides of the model tonight. Not really concerned with the evenness of the paint as the real thing tends to look like this as well.

The goal is to finish this by Sunday, when my IPMS club theme contest "unarmed" will be held. Since this has limited decals and no weapons to add, that goal is achievable. We shall see!!!
03. October at 06:19:26
Patrick Hagelstein I vaguely remember a Hornet....
03. October at 07:47:34
Bart Goesaert Black as a base, not very dark grey? or will you use that to "highlight"...
03. October at 11:07:00
Roland Roth I love the "black birds" ...
... and will keep track of your coverage until the end
03. October at 11:33:10
Michael Phillips Haha, Patrick you are so right... but this time I did it! It's not my best work, but I am just glad I finished it after having so much displeasure building it and rescribing.

Bart, black was just the beginning. It has gunship gray, flat coat, then some tamiya rubber black to give it the faded uneven finish I was trying to emulate.

Thanks Roland, this project is now complete! I have uploaded pics into a new album... check it out!

Clifford Keesler I built the U-2C and re-scribed the whole thing, cut out and lowered the flaps and shoe horned in a cockpit tub from an old Hasegawa F-1o4, as the C has no cockpit just four pegs to hold the seat. I used the Palva resin seat.

Maciej Bellos I know it's an earlier version but it surely won't be a dog to build:

U-2A Dragon Lady (AFV Club AR48112, 1:48)

Maybe you'll build it at some point in the future.

Clifford Keesler I did not know there was another 1/48 U-2 out there, Good to know.
30. September at 01:09:23
Michael Phillips Yeah, I saw that. Figures, right, once I start building one that I have to rescribe entirely... LOL This thing is huge, so I am not sure if I will build another one or not... We shall see!

I haven't decided what markings to build this one in yet either... Now I just have to get the mojo going on my current project, which has stalled because I hate rescribing...
