F-4J Jolly Rogers Academy WIP and finished model

View images (116): | | List

I was not initially planning to build two F-4J in a row... but here it goes. if i do not build this one this kit may get dust in the stash for a long time, and it looks too good to let that happen
Differences are clear compared with previous project. I hope to do do a lot less surgery. Academy kit seems to have a lot better details and better engineering than Hasegawa. no need to get weapons, plenty included (although Eduard ones could be better).
i will be probably using TER and MER that i did not use in my F-4J Black Bunny.
hopefully this build will take me much less time :)

Alec K This looks... serious. Watching
15. April 2017 at 23:07:09
Spanjaard thanks Alec, i hope this would be a nice one.
15. April 2017 at 23:11:07
Alec K Your last one was sweet, so improving on it will be tough :D
15. April 2017 at 23:17:27
Spanjaard thanks Alec :) well, at first sight, the details of Academy are better than those of Hasegawa, so i hope i can capitalize on that ;)
on the other hand, if i do it wrong, it will be even more evident :D

gorbygould That must have cost a few weeks pocket money. ;)
16. April 2017 at 16:18:22
Marko I'm in
16. April 2017 at 16:19:48
Spanjaard the advantage of not having much space for my stash, is that i can get some aftermarkets and have them inside of the existing boxes ;)
16. April 2017 at 17:16:59
Patrick Hagelstein I love the smell of Academy plastic in the morning!
16. April 2017 at 22:01:37
Spanjaard :) i am more of night modeller :D
16. April 2017 at 22:18:35
Spanjaard ok, a little update with the modifications to the aires Resin, to adjust to the kit almost without surgery to the kit. only area modified was the part closer to the fuselage
18. April 2017 at 19:55:26
Clifford Keesler I'm in!!! I have this one also, so I will watch with intrest. Bet it will be a stunner.
18. April 2017 at 19:58:48
Spanjaard i will do my best Clifford, hope it will turn out good :)
and i hope it will take less time than last build :P
18. April 2017 at 20:05:46
Kees Kleijwegt Another Phantom inbound from Amsterdam. :) Front seat please
18. April 2017 at 20:47:49
Spanjaard welcome to the build Kees :)
18. April 2017 at 21:22:34
David Thor I`m in!
19. April 2017 at 06:21:58
Martin Oostrom I call shotgun
19. April 2017 at 07:41:26
Bart Goesaert Nice start so far... will be a pleasure to follow...
19. April 2017 at 11:57:55
Spanjaard welcome David and Bart, i hope it will be a pleasure to build :)
@Martin, shotgun?
19. April 2017 at 18:58:23
Ferry Dierckxsens Looks great! I will follow with interest.
19. April 2017 at 19:15:48
Spanjaard thanks Ferry, welcome :)
19. April 2017 at 19:20:55
David Andrs @spanjaard: shotgun here is a slang for a person riding next to the driver. It comes from old wild west, where one person was handling the horses (of a drawn carriage) and the guy next to him had a shotgun to protect the carriage. Usage: "we went on a trip, I was riding a shotgun."
20. April 2017 at 01:35:40
Michael Phillips Oh I am in for sure! Love anything with the "Bones"... This looks to be an EPIC project!!!
20. April 2017 at 03:09:08
Michael Phillips LOL David, I never considered that the term "shotgun" would not be familiar with non-Americans, but that does make sense that they wouldn't.

Here in the US, if a group of people are getting into a car (3 or more), the front passenger seat is the preferred seat, so often times someone will call "shotgun!" out loud, signifying they get to sit up front. The first person to say it is generally accepted to have rightful claim, and it is usually lamented by the others that they did not think to call it first. This is usually mostly done within groups of close friends or family.
20. April 2017 at 03:13:13
Martin Oostrom I consider you guys friends ;)
But I'm from a small town just south of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Just watched too many American series I guess. A-team anybody?
20. April 2017 at 06:36:42
Erik Leijdens I am also from a small village just south of Rotterdam Martin, were do you live?
20. April 2017 at 06:55:25
Kees Kleijwegt I can copy-paste the question from Erik! :)

I am also from a small village just south of Rotterdam Martin, were do you live?

20. April 2017 at 08:40:07
Spanjaard ha ha ha, ok Martin, shotgun place is yours :) thanks David and Michael for the explanation. when i was watching A-team, i had it translated... pity, it is a lot better in the original english version, of course. probably that is why i never heard the shotgun expresion before....
That was a small town in Spain, quite some time ago
and thanks Michael for calling it epic project, i just hope it does not end as an epic disaster :D
20. April 2017 at 17:24:33
Adam Gudynowski I like such detailingly described WIPs :)
20. April 2017 at 19:04:43
Spanjaard thanks Adam
20. April 2017 at 19:28:24
Spanjaard some progress in the cockpit.
26. April 2017 at 23:03:45
wilky And the reason it's called "shotgun" is because in the old horse drawn coach days the guy sitting up front next to the driver carried a shotgun (more often known as a scatter gun to Americans back then) for defence purposes
26. April 2017 at 23:40:41
Spanjaard thanks wilky
27. April 2017 at 07:01:40
Patrick Hagelstein Hi Spanjaard, your spine plug seems to be a more snug fit indeed. Nice one! :) It sure looks good already!
27. April 2017 at 08:07:53
seb H woow lot's of stuff, good begining :)
27. April 2017 at 12:29:21
Spanjaard Hi Patrick, maybe Academy fixed it, I do not know.
I still need to work on that area, I airbrushed with some left over paint, and i am not satisfied with how it looks yet. it is in such a prominent spot.....
27. April 2017 at 12:29:38
Patrick Hagelstein Yep! I know what you mean... It's very wierd given the overall quality of the kit. BTW, happy King's Day!!!
27. April 2017 at 12:59:50
Bryn Crandell That's a lot of plastic. LOL! Looking good so far. Watching as usual.
27. April 2017 at 13:16:48
Spanjaard happy King's Day to you too Patrick :)
welcome Bryn :)
27. April 2017 at 15:07:54
Jay Mountain Goat Nice work, looking forward to more.
27. April 2017 at 15:57:36
Spanjaard thanks Jay, i will do my best :)
27. April 2017 at 15:58:52
Stephan Ryll I'm also in - nice progress so far :)
27. April 2017 at 18:24:00
Christian Bruer A promising start and a project to follow :)
27. April 2017 at 19:50:05
Spanjaard thasnk Stephan and thanks a Christian, your words really encourage me :)
27. April 2017 at 23:19:57
Clifford Keesler Looking very nice.
28. April 2017 at 21:00:36
Spanjaard thanks Clifford :)
30. April 2017 at 22:02:58
Spanjaard after not doing much during May, finally an update. cockpit not completely finish, but advancing in the right direction. Certainly some serious sanding requiered, but no doubt because i did use the Aires wheel well. if i would have only use Eduard, I would have not need to sand anything probably. but a lot less sanding than when using Aires wheel well and cockpit in my Black Bunny.....
8. June 2017 at 20:39:10
Sebastian Meyner This cockpit is looking great Spanjaard!!
22. June 2017 at 22:54:26
Donald Dickson II Very nice so far! I just finished up the Eduard reboxing of this kit, Good Evening Da Nang. Its a great kit on its own and add the extras you have...
22. June 2017 at 23:45:30
Murad ÖZER Spanjaard that office is looking veeery busy.
23. June 2017 at 00:11:20
Jay Mountain Goat Excellent progress -I agree with the above -nice busy looking cockpit..!
23. June 2017 at 11:04:36
Holger Kranich Hey Spanjaard, i´m looking phorward your Phantom! Pit Looks already phantastic!
23. June 2017 at 11:59:02
Stephan Ryll Good start on that ! Nice pit !
23. June 2017 at 14:06:18
Patrick Hagelstein Yep! Looks really nice!
23. June 2017 at 22:39:57
Spanjaard thanks a lot everybody! such comments are really appreciated, specially coming from some really good modellers and experts in the phantom :)
24. June 2017 at 19:48:11
Markus Kutsch The Plastic Bench Well done cockpit...detailed work
25. June 2017 at 09:37:14
Spanjaard thanks Markus
25. June 2017 at 16:27:26
Spanjaard ok, it was about time for update. i have tried black base for the first time, and i think i have maybe used too much paint... but it is still visible, at least it does not look like new out of the factory..... i have done a bit of Future in preparation for decals (no picture of that yet). i have taken some licence in the building sequence, and for example the engine exhaust and the metallic area will not be added until the very end.... i think i have it covered, but we will see at the end.
24. July 2017 at 22:50:07
Greg Baker wow! Beautiful as always. Your patience and attention to detail are amazing.
24. July 2017 at 22:50:28
Spanjaard thanks Greg, really appreciated :)
24. July 2017 at 22:57:56
Patrick Hagelstein Spanjaard, that Spook realy looks the part! Actualy I like the subtle grey topside. Too much black showing through may just be too much. Remember that close to an actual airplane you would see all the scuffs and damaged paint but from a distance (i.e. looking at a 1/48 scale aircraft) the colour would just blend in to a more uniform appearance.
25. July 2017 at 00:35:56
Donald Dickson II I think you did fine with the black base. IMO you dont want to have a lot more showing through as you will be doing washes and stuff later.
25. July 2017 at 00:43:39
Clifford Keesler Looks good to me sir. Very nice attention to detail.
25. July 2017 at 01:13:39
Spanjaard thanks a lot Patrick, Donald and Clifford, your comments mean a lot to me :)
Washes will be applied later, that is true. That may add a bit more shadows.
25. July 2017 at 06:40:16
Stephan Ryll very nice progress - lookin good :)
25. July 2017 at 08:30:50
Spanjaard thanks Stephan :)
lots of Spooks to compete with, and yours is a very nice one :)
25. July 2017 at 09:34:44
Stephan Ryll Thank you Spanjaard :) I'm shure you're will become a real beauty
25. July 2017 at 17:09:10
Spanjaard thanks Stephan! will do my best :)
25. July 2017 at 17:26:13
Spanjaard HGW stencil decal are simply fantastic, I got most of them placed in no time, and results are amazing. No carrier film like dry transfers, but a lot easier and faster
Cartograph decals included in Academy kit are really good, with Mr Mark Setter, they stick like nothing I ever seen before.... After a bit of Future, you hardly see the borders of the carrier film. Even where 2 decals overlap eachother, you can clearly see the plastic details underneath
1. August 2017 at 07:31:00
Donald Dickson II Looks great!
2. August 2017 at 00:39:01
Clifford Keesler I agree with Donald, awesome.
2. August 2017 at 18:38:56
Alec K It's coming together very nicely
3. August 2017 at 00:38:08
Murad ÖZER indeed
3. August 2017 at 00:41:18
Spanjaard thanks Donald, Clifford, Alec and Murad, your comments are really appreciated :)
I am looking forward doing some washes etc on it, but it will have to wait some time before i can come back to it.....
6. August 2017 at 22:37:32
Choppa Nutta How have I missed this ???
Good work Spanjaard !
Cockpit looks great particularly, tidy work all round too :)
6. August 2017 at 22:42:54
seb H very nice, mine is waiting that i have some courage to finish stencils :( :(
7. August 2017 at 00:39:13
Tim Heimer LOOKING GOOD!
7. August 2017 at 02:43:19

7. August 2017 at 18:52:54
James C Looking fantastic mate!!!
7. August 2017 at 20:05:58
Clifford Keesler Looking great.
7. August 2017 at 21:21:19
Spanjaard thanks Choppa, Seb H, Timoty, Christian, Michael, James and Clifford. wow, what a great crowd on my six. your comments are really appreciated. really happy you like it :)
8. August 2017 at 21:45:30
Erik Leijdens Fantastic work Spanjaard. Nice stenciling bonanza
9. August 2017 at 06:05:57
Spanjaard thanks Erik, quite some work still need to be done :)
9. August 2017 at 22:23:05
Kerry COX You have been busy mate. :)
The detail you have pursued has paid off in a big way, as all I see is a very 'busy' interior, especially the front office and that front wheel well. Mmmmmmmm :)
Congrats mate. well done.
9. August 2017 at 22:37:22
Torben Rudolph Great results so far, I have a seat and look forward to your next steps
10. August 2017 at 16:14:39
Maciej Bellos Great work, in the pit, in the wheel wells, in the air intakes, in all places here and there. Looking forward for the finished result.
10. August 2017 at 19:21:42
Spanjaard hi Kerry, Torben and Maciej. welcome to the build. i am really glad you like it. i am also looking forward finishing it :)
10. August 2017 at 22:15:53
Konrad Limmer Cool looking Phantom :). I cant miss that kind of build. The Cockpit looks really amazing. I've got this eduard Upgrade too. Hopefully it looks so cool as yours. Ja
29. September 2017 at 17:17:16
Spanjaard thanks a lot Konrad, really appreciated. I have to give it the final push and finish it for once and for all :) i was a couple of weeks away but now, it is time to get it done :)
29. September 2017 at 17:20:28
29. September 2017 at 17:21:39
29. September 2017 at 17:25:02
29. September 2017 at 17:54:14
Patrick Hagelstein It's really looking the part!
29. September 2017 at 18:15:54
Spanjaard ok, i am off tot he bench :)
29. September 2017 at 18:29:23
Stephan Ryll Awsome work Spanjaard :) looking very good!
29. September 2017 at 18:38:52
Donald Dickson II Yes, you have been procrastinating long enough sir! ;)
29. September 2017 at 19:16:24
Spanjaard yes Donald, you are right!
29. September 2017 at 19:17:23
Spanjaard thanks Stephan
29. September 2017 at 19:17:34
Clifford Keesler Looking very nice indeed sir.
29. September 2017 at 19:18:11
Spanjaard thanks :)
29. September 2017 at 19:54:44
Kerry COX You must have held your tongue in the right place to get all those stencil decals right mate. !! :-o
Tremendous work indeed. :)
Cheers.
29. September 2017 at 20:56:29
seb H good job spanjaard, we seems to be at the same point I have to finish avery stencil under the plane...want to finish it next month !!! :)
29. September 2017 at 21:16:39
Spanjaard well, those stencils are easier than you may think. with the HGW decals you do big number in one go. it took me a fraction of the time i spent on the dry transfers of my other F4-J, the Black bunny. there also less in number (the bunny had around a thousand of them.... literally). thanks for the kind words, your compliment meant a lot to me :)
29. September 2017 at 21:16:53
Spanjaard Thanks Seb your comments are really appreciated :)
you will probably finish first, I could not do much last weekend
2. October 2017 at 14:33:27
Christian Bruer very convincing progress
3. October 2017 at 10:09:55
Ben Schumacher Excellent job so far!
3. October 2017 at 10:32:34
Spanjaard deeply honoured by your comments Christian and Ben :)
3. October 2017 at 17:24:59
Bernd Müller Very nice Spook. Applying all the needed stencils can take a while.
15. October 2017 at 19:32:40
Kerry COX Spanjaard, This time, I took a lot more time looking at each image you have posted and it is abundantly clear you have bought all your skills and experience to bare on your build.
Thank you for the running commentary and indications of the improvements you have made, as it certainly will help me with the Spook I am about to tackle and the little tricks to help me through. :)
BTW, the air scoops on the snout I hollowed out also, but were done with some old dentists teeth scraping tools.
I am most impressed with everything you have done to make this build the pleasure it is to see it. :)
Great job mate.
SALUTE. :) :)
15. October 2017 at 20:27:06
Kerry COX With the parts spread out like that, it make one wonder where it all goes in the end. hahahaha
15. October 2017 at 20:28:02
Spanjaard thanks Bernd. and thanks Kerry, your comments mean a lot to me, coming from one of the modellers that i admire in SCM :)
i certainly could not leave those scoops as they are. And after so much resin aftermarket, decide to do it on my own. what tools did you use?
In this Phantom i decided to hollow them, while in the previous I did some scratchbuilding with aluminium (from a soda can) that looks ok too. was different kind of fun
very slow progress in the last month, and did not found the will to take pictures....
15. October 2017 at 20:49:30
Kerry COX Spanjaard, I know what it's like to not keep taking photos of my work, mainly because I get so engrossed, I forget. LOL :)
The tin foil sounds a great way to replicate the air scoops indeed. I would love to see some images of the final result on that effort. ?
The tools I use are older/thrown out tools from a dentists surgery and they have great angled tips for gently shaving away the plastic bit by bit. I will post some images of what they look like on the F-4 I will be tackling in earnest in the next couple of week.
I have two 'anniversary 1/48 Hasegawa 'Spooks' that are quite a few years old (At least 30 years it's been in production) !!!
but keep getting re released by Hasegawa due to popular demand, being the better looking shape out of all the kits I know of, but in saying that, I am really tempted to get the Zoukie-Mura 1/48 F-4, having seen and heard good reviews on the overall high quality of the kit.
Ill keep you posted.
And thank you for your compliment on my past works mate.
It also means a lot to me that I am considered skilled at my hobby.
Cheers.
Kez. :)
15. October 2017 at 23:12:22
Spanjaard Sure, F-4J Phantom II Black Bunny WIP 2 & finish | Album by hetspanjaard (1:48) I would suggest picture 30, 104 and 115.
Zoukei-Mura is a big temptation for me, but after two consecutive Spooks, I really want to have something different on my work bench :D
16. October 2017 at 08:06:13
Clifford Keesler It looks outstanding.
17. October 2017 at 03:39:56
Spanjaard thanks Clifford
17. October 2017 at 06:40:48
Donald Dickson II I looked at the ZM when it came out. Before it hit the shelves actually. It was impressive in the box for sure. BUT, not so much so that I would pay the money for it over the Academy kit.
18. October 2017 at 00:44:01
Spanjaard for what i have seen about ZM, it looks good, but the Academy is certainly good enough for me :)
18. October 2017 at 05:16:30
Patrick Hagelstein I have the ZM F-4S ( Yes, it's designed to be a true S!!!) still in the box... I would love to build it but first want to finish my orange lion.
19. October 2017 at 03:44:56
Spanjaard looking forward when you do it :)
19. October 2017 at 05:58:28
19. October 2017 at 21:07:53
Dennis Wow, okay - this is a version of that kit to look up to! Very impressive, I wonder if I want to reach that level of detail-mindedness! :D
29. November 2017 at 07:48:49
Spanjaard thanks a lot Dennis. i need to post a few more pictures, it is almost done, only a few details left. but i could not dedicate as much time as i wanted. and following my usual habit, i had to do a few things twice to get satisfied with it.
29. November 2017 at 10:08:16
Alec K Looks pretty awesome Spanjaard. All those stencils....
29. November 2017 at 12:37:23
Spanjaard thanks Alec K. believe they took very short time, you actually place multiple one in one go with HGW system. not like the ones of my previous Phantom....
29. November 2017 at 12:41:03
Alec K Still, there had to be a crap load :) :) :)
29. November 2017 at 13:00:09
Spanjaard it went actually a lot faster than you may think actually... or maybe because compared with the one thousand individual stencils of Hobbydecal, it was certainly a lot faster!
29. November 2017 at 13:12:18
Nikolaos Kouzinis Excellent job!! Bravo
29. November 2017 at 20:48:33
Agustin Prellezo A masterpiece is coming!
29. November 2017 at 21:25:52
Spanjaard thanks Nikolaus and Agustin
30. November 2017 at 06:17:30
Spanjaard a few bits missing, but real close to be finished.
11. December 2017 at 13:51:14
Donald Dickson II Looks great sir!
11. December 2017 at 18:54:45
Zsolt Czegle Awesome job!
11. December 2017 at 19:57:39
Greg Baker But there are so many bits... how can you tell if some are missing? It doesn't look like it. ;)
11. December 2017 at 23:11:58
Spanjaard Thanks a lot Donald and Zsolt. and thanks Greg, for the compliment, and for making me smile :). it should be finished before the weekend :)
11. December 2017 at 23:50:52
Clifford Keesler Looks amazing sir, well done.
12. December 2017 at 00:30:34
Spanjaard thanks Clifford
12. December 2017 at 06:16:23
Ferry Dierckxsens I followed in silence, it looks absolutely fantastic. The amount of details is super. Great work!
12. December 2017 at 12:46:56

13. December 2017 at 08:13:35
13. December 2017 at 09:20:48
Spanjaard @Bart, your project looks really interesting. looking forward seeing some pictures. be prepared for lots of sanding with the cockpit and wheel bay from Aires. i do not know about the photo set. hope it needs less sanding.
13. December 2017 at 17:09:44
Brian Jones Very impressive work great attention to detail
13. December 2017 at 18:58:34
Spanjaard thanks Clubs

16. December 2017 at 12:08:42
Greg Baker Well, there are a lot of bits... ;)
16. December 2017 at 14:45:07
Christian Bruer Excellent work so far Spanjaard
16. December 2017 at 15:13:07
Spanjaard thanks Christian. Greg, if you want to point some of errors (there are several ones) I would like to hear about it. At least the most obvious, so i can improve on the next build :)
16. December 2017 at 15:47:07
James C Looking fantastic mate.
16. December 2017 at 18:15:54

Spanjaard thanks Lode
17. December 2017 at 10:20:05
Konrad Limmer Cool finish! Especially the ladder! Which one is it, scratch build?
Anyhow I like it very much!
26. December 2017 at 19:11:39
Spanjaard the ladder is scratch built. but i must say that i was looking at pictures of Ladder McDonnell F-4 Phantom (PlusModel AL4050, 1:48) and used them as a guideline. i still need to weather ir a bit

1:48 Ladder McDonnell F-4 Phantom (PlusModel AL4050)

Konrad Limmer Cool yeah it looks great. I've used above one for my one.
26. December 2017 at 19:53:24
Stefan Schacht Excellent work
26. December 2017 at 19:58:55
Spanjaard yes, your album F4 D Phantom II Gunfighters | Album by Kone (1:48) was the one that gave me the idea :) , thanks by the way :)

Soeren . Really nice Phantom.
27. December 2017 at 01:33:52
Gil Venditelli Fantastic detail. Awesome looking plane, great job! I got to meet 2 VF84 pilots of a Tomcat back in the 90's. Have the tamiya 32 scale version I hope to build some day soon.
27. December 2017 at 06:21:06
Flop_Se stunning build Spanjaard! Looking awesome!
27. December 2017 at 06:38:57
Martin Oostrom Nothing new to be said. I simply agree with all of the above.
27. December 2017 at 07:41:15
Greg Baker I dunno... could be better.. :P
27. December 2017 at 07:55:29
Peter Hardy Played strong, done fine!
27. December 2017 at 10:45:27
Martin Oostrom Greg's just jealous because there are no Phantoms in the Tintin albums ;)
27. December 2017 at 11:28:44
Murad ÖZER finally finished it's a lovely build Spanjaard!
27. December 2017 at 13:41:00

30. December 2017 at 00:24:33
Peter Hardy We can all look in your stash and make some suggestions!
30. December 2017 at 00:53:54
Spanjaard feel free :)
30. December 2017 at 18:00:45
Maciej Bellos B E A U T I F U L ! ! !
After a sneek peek of your stash, my vote goes to the Colonial Viper and the 75th Aniversary thingy!
30. December 2017 at 19:56:10
bughunter Nice Phantom, all your detail work created this beautiful model! What about a biplane? ;) If not my vote goes to the water dropping CL-415!
30. December 2017 at 22:11:24
Erik Leijdens Fantastic job Antonio!! Really impressive detail work mate!
30. December 2017 at 22:24:18
Peter Hardy Either the MG or the afore mentioned Viper.
31. December 2017 at 00:14:51
Spanjaard thanks Maciej, Viper is a good option, but I am waiting for PE parts... that will take several weeks more to arrive :( F18 will be done in Spanish colours, but not for now.
Thanks bughunter, I am honoured by your comments, but my details are pale and crude compare with yours :) CL-415 is a really good option, actually :)
Thanks Erik, really appreciated.
thanks Peter, the MG is also one that I really wan to build. specially after seeing the fantastic MG TC built by Guy Golsteyn
31. December 2017 at 00:44:20
Alexander G. Beautiful work, Spanjaard!
31. December 2017 at 11:31:56
Spanjaard Thanks Alexander!
31. December 2017 at 15:21:56
Frank Krüger Wow! As in real!! So much details !!! A masterpiece!!!! Congratulations !!!!!
31. December 2017 at 15:30:20
Spanjaard thanks a lot Frank!
31. December 2017 at 16:14:12
Donald Dickson II I say do a model!
31. December 2017 at 17:08:06
Spanjaard I certainly will :)
1. January 2018 at 01:31:51
Nico L. very very impressive. love this bird
2. January 2018 at 11:07:22
2. January 2018 at 16:03:01
Spanjaard thanks Nico and Cristian
3. January 2018 at 00:53:01
Stephan Ryll Beautiful final result Spanjaard
6. January 2018 at 11:58:03
Spanjaard thanks a lot Stephan, really appreciated
6. January 2018 at 15:27:25
Spanjaard at the end , the new project will be the Back to Future Delorean... (sorry bughunter, no biplane in my stash at the moment) I intend to do some extra detail on it....
8. January 2018 at 22:09:33
Alec K Sweet! I love that car
9. January 2018 at 01:09:14
Alvaro Masner Excelente trabajo Spanjaard!!!!...uno de mis próximos modelos, salvo que el mío será el de Robin!!! de la Fuerza Aérea!!!!...estoy buscando el interior de Aires....un poco caro usd 30!!!!....lo tomaré cómo modelo cuando comience el mío!
9. February 2018 at 23:23:09
Dan M Excellent Phantom Spanjaard!
9. February 2018 at 23:41:02
Robert Paschall Awesome work. Love the Rhinos
10. February 2018 at 04:05:33
Spanjaard thanks a lot Álvaro, Dan and Robert.
@Álvaro, en este use el interior de Eduard, que ajusta como un guante. Usé el de Aires en mi Phantom de Hasegawa . Aries lleva un montón de trabajo de lijado para ajustarlo, pero los detalles creo que son mejores. Además en el de Eduard, no me gusta el hecho de que los fotograbados estén ya pintados.
el de hasegawa lo tengo en dos albunes, por que el primero no sale en el newsfeed por alguna razón....

Jos Jansen Great Phantom, awesome job man!
10. February 2018 at 20:18:52
Spanjaard thanks a lot Jos. the truth is that is not fully finish, since i have some figures and plan to do also a base... but those make take a while.... ;)
10. February 2018 at 20:31:12
Clifford Keesler A very lovely Rhino, well done sir.
11. February 2018 at 02:05:23
Jos Jansen Iam gonna use your F-4 as an example, I have in my stash a Phanton from eduard 'Goodmorning da Nang".... this should also be one of the Jolly Rogers. Thanks for the pics!
11. February 2018 at 18:14:57
Alvaro Masner Gracias por el dato, soy amante de Eduard, pero creo que el equilibrio se encuentra en la mezcla de la resina y fotograbado, por eso busco el de Aires....luego que vi las cirugías que hay que aplicar, creo que me asusté un poco!!!...voy a ver los PE de Eduard....gracias por los consejos y nuevamente excelente trabajo!
11. February 2018 at 18:19:41
Spanjaard thanks Clifford, and thanks a lot Jos, I hope it helps you.
Álvaro, the surgery applied was also due to the front wheel well . using both means sanding much more. only the cockpit means less surgery needed. certainly Eduard requires a lot less work. but i do love the details of Aires :)
11. February 2018 at 20:07:49
Clifford Keesler I am going to try my first Aries cockpit, on my Lighting F6, and I just ordered on for my Monogram Pro Modeler JU-88. I am debating on one for the Hasegawa F-4E.
11. February 2018 at 23:48:20
Spanjaard looking forward seeing those results.
12. February 2018 at 07:17:59
Peter Hardy Was showing my wife this photo album Spanjaard, she is mighty impressed. Even said I should try and "do" a plane as good as this. I hate you!
12. February 2018 at 07:23:21
Peter Hardy Even said you were my friend.
12. February 2018 at 07:24:17
Guy Rump Superb model Spanjaard. :)
12. February 2018 at 07:35:47
Spanjaard thanks Guy, and thanks to Ms. Hardy too. you should try to do some planes, Peter ;)
12. February 2018 at 11:29:44
Patrick Hagelstein :D It's almost Valentine's Day Peter, just go for it!
12. February 2018 at 14:56:11
Peter Hardy Pat, I have five, yes FIVE unfinished models on my bench. I actually do have a few (very) planes in the stash, all WW1 bi and triplanes. No fast jets. Besides, she has ME! What more could a woman want?
12. February 2018 at 22:25:51
Choppa Nutta A lovely Rhino
12. February 2018 at 22:29:37
Peter Hardy Don't spoil her!
12. February 2018 at 22:31:19
12. February 2018 at 23:01:35
Mathew Nate Worldclass
12. February 2018 at 23:25:58
Martin Oostrom Peter, biplanes can be very tricky with the alignment and the rigging. Better practice on a nice F-4. Can you save the frustration for later ;) because there WILL be frustration when building biplanes.
13. February 2018 at 07:49:02
Peter Hardy Nah, if I did a fast jet it would be Russian or the Hot Rod. Next build will be the Frisbee, er Cylon Raider. Wish you would slow down the build rate, you have built six models to my none.
13. February 2018 at 07:54:34
Lode Schildermans Peter, no one is capable to follow this modeling rabbit on duracell
13. February 2018 at 08:06:27
Martin Oostrom I finished Enterprise in December, which took a year and mirage in November. I'm not fast :( Wait till Michael Phillips gets his mojo back!
13. February 2018 at 08:12:59
Peter Hardy Lode that is so flipping true!!!!!!!!
13. February 2018 at 08:22:09
José Ángel Moreno Impresionante!! You are my hero ... ;)
13. February 2018 at 08:32:30
José Ángel Moreno Actually, when I grow old I want to be like you (read a lot of envy between lines) :)))
13. February 2018 at 08:34:56
Peter Hardy What? Old? Forgetful? Incontenant? Irritable? Spanjaard's good points should not be envied!
13. February 2018 at 08:59:33
Spanjaard Thanks Choppa, Matthew and Jose Ángel, your comments are really appreciated.
@Peter, what can i say? thanks for your kindness too :P
13. February 2018 at 11:58:42
Maciej Bellos I am with Martin here. When Michael Phillips gets his mojo back, he will put us all in shame. He builds great models in a fraction of the time I need to build one.
13. February 2018 at 14:13:45
13. February 2018 at 15:54:56
Patrick Hagelstein But good he does so! :)
13. February 2018 at 15:55:09
Spanjaard i fully agree!
13. February 2018 at 16:04:17
Michael Phillips Man, you guys sure know how to make a dude blush over here! LOL Thanks to all for the kind words. I can report that I have spent time at the bench for each of the last three nights... So I am back! Update to my album should follow soon. You guys all had a big hand in helping me to restore my lost mojo!

But anyway, enough about me. Let's return our attention to Patrick's amazing Phantom here. Fear the Bones!!!
13. February 2018 at 18:49:22
Patrick Hagelstein Actually.... It's Spanjaard's Spook... Kudos to him! ;)
13. February 2018 at 19:18:30
Spanjaard glad to see you up and about Michael :)
i will take as a compliment that you think it was Patrick's model :D
13. February 2018 at 19:19:40
Patrick Hagelstein :D My Spook is still in the Netherlands, I haven't opened a Phantom box over here yet...
13. February 2018 at 19:21:06
Spanjaard you left your Spook behind Patrick??? I did not expect that ;)
13. February 2018 at 19:22:22
Michael Phillips Doh! Apparently I'm still not 100%. LOL Sorry Spanjaard! Where's the embarrassed emoji when you need it? Hahahaa
13. February 2018 at 19:44:31
Patrick Hagelstein Well.... My 1/32 selection, I still have three years to complete a 1/48 ZM F-4S and two 1/48 Academy Naval Spooks. ;)
13. February 2018 at 19:51:02
Martin Oostrom Right here :#
13. February 2018 at 20:03:48
13. February 2018 at 20:24:33
Peter Hardy I haven't got an emoji. :(
14. February 2018 at 05:30:41
Lode Schildermans Sure you have Peter, the Tasmanian Devil is your emoij
14. February 2018 at 07:41:18
Peter Hardy Well I have been called worse things I suppose! Actually my Dad's Mum was born in a dirt floor hut in Tassie, so of course her family nickname was Tassie!
14. February 2018 at 07:57:51
Daniel Klink Gorgeous! Really beuatiful Phantom.. Love the Detailwork and the PAintjob..
And you did this on aLiving room Table??? :)
Respect
15. March 2018 at 10:44:37
Spanjaard Well, it took about 8 months. Bad planning I guess . Glad you like it
15. March 2018 at 12:11:27
Michael Hickey That's one sweet looking lookin Rhino.
15. March 2018 at 12:25:10
Spanjaard Thanks Michael
15. March 2018 at 14:49:30
macinko Waaaw... spectacular finished a model...
15. March 2018 at 15:13:32
Ingo F Looks very good Spanjaard.
15. March 2018 at 15:13:43
Ferenc Sarka Perfect.
15. March 2018 at 16:15:50
Spanjaard You are very kind. Thanks macinko, Ferenc and Ingo
15. March 2018 at 16:27:08
Peter Hardy Might have been slow Spanjaard, but The Sistine Chapel wasn't done overnight mate! Work of art my friend. I doff my hat to you!
16. March 2018 at 09:36:28
Spanjaard Thanks s lot Peter,! Truly appreciated
16. March 2018 at 13:21:31
Clifford Keesler Awesome looking Rhino Spanjaard. Well done.
17. March 2018 at 23:43:18
Spanjaard thanks a lot Clifford
18. March 2018 at 00:04:51
Paul Moore Wow! Guys like me get frustrated when we see something like that. That's a beautiful model.
23. March 2018 at 09:40:21
Paul Moore Did you get those panel lines like that through a wash or something else?
23. March 2018 at 09:41:47
Spanjaard thanks Paul, you are very kind. yes, I did you a wash. After the almost complete disaster with my NXR-750 I wanted something a lot less "aggressive" with the plastic and i tried with Florymodels washes. It did work like a charm and with no risk for the plastic. I must say that the Academy model has fantastic panel detail, and with a simple wash, it looks fantastic. Hasegawa F-4J for example, have some nice detail, but not as good as the Academy one
ah, and i also used Future before the wash. over the flat tamiya paint, it would have looked a lot more "dirty
23. March 2018 at 18:24:56
John Hoffmann Amazing amount of detail! And pics. Thanks for sharing all that. The end result is impressive.
23. March 2018 at 19:09:29
Lode Schildermans All the explanations Spanjaard about the used products, ithe fact is that you and your skills resulted in this fantastic build. As you know, i ain't a plane builder, but this one is a joy to watch and watch over again. It never bored and each time i see new tiny details. No need to be modest. Grtz, Lode
23. March 2018 at 19:15:18
Spanjaard big thanks Lode. that is really a compliment :) and of course, thanks John. i am really glad that you two enjoyed the build.
i really need to get to work on my Delorean... no progress for quite some time :(
23. March 2018 at 19:25:30
Peter Hardy Spanjaard my friend, I was going to put a smartarse comment about seeing this again but it never fails to make me smile when I go through the build pics. So, no smartarse comment from me, well not this time anyway. Lode is correct, your modesty is gracious, the work of art above tells of your skills. All of us who have commented on this build have enjoyed your mastery and are keenly awaiting the DeLorean. It had better be up to this standard or you will suffer the wrath of all above. Congratulations on this build again. My friend, I am in awe.
23. March 2018 at 21:23:44
Tim Heimer Again, Awesome work on this! Now back to the future! LOL
23. March 2018 at 22:37:34
Spanjaard wow Peter, that is really a heart touching compliment, truly appreciated. :) I will do my best with the Delorean, just :"a bit" sort of time and energy at the moment.... but i will certainly do it to the best of my abilities.
thanks Timothy, i will :)
24. March 2018 at 08:32:56
Paul Moore Spanjaard, since it is obvious that your goal is perfection, I thought I would give you a thought. I was a pilot in the US Navy aboard carriers and I think the wash applied over the ordnance is not accurate. The sparrow missiles on your photo have a fair amount of wash still attached to them. All ordnance aboard shop was very clean. Even on deployment when alert aircraft were frequently armed and subject to weather, ordnance was always wiped down, cleaned and kept in very good shape. Absolutely in awe of this model!
24. March 2018 at 11:24:32
Spanjaard i was trying to make the sparrows more "lively" by marking the lines... but you are right, I went too far there and made them look dirty. Your comment and feedback is highly appreciated. Specially coming from somebody with real experience in the subject! I may actually ask your advice in the future. I have the plan of adding a base (an aircraft carrier deck). I want to chain it to it. I got a Tie Down Point Set and Tie Down Device Set, to do it, and your experience could certainly be of great help the day i do it.
24. March 2018 at 15:05:18
Paul Moore You bet. Would be happy to give what I can.
25. March 2018 at 00:31:49
Christian Lehmann Very nice result
25. March 2018 at 07:41:54
Derek Reeve Ah............a 'toom which is absolutely beautiful, well done mate.
25. March 2018 at 08:53:43
Spanjaard thanks a lot Paul. i will contact you when the time comes.
thanks Christian and Derek, glad you like it.
25. March 2018 at 15:47:27
Cuajete Fantastic work. Enhorabuena, Spanjaard!! ;)
25. March 2018 at 17:51:50
Spanjaard gracias Cuajete
25. March 2018 at 18:29:14
Daniel Klink Now that i saw all 116 images from the start, i have to say... Masterpiece
25. March 2018 at 19:01:31
Spanjaard thanks a lot Daniel, honoured by your comment :)
25. March 2018 at 20:18:41
Phenix Wow, very nice job . Weathering is realistic, not excessive as we see too often nowadays . Congrats Spanjaard .
14. April 2018 at 22:35:11
Spanjaard thanks Phenix, your compliments are really appreciated!
14. April 2018 at 22:37:23
Spanjaard sometimes i think i should have added a few stains in a few places... but i like this one a lot and i do not dare to ruin it now :D :D
14. April 2018 at 22:38:17
Stefan Schacht Hi Spanjaard, never touch a finished model :)
. Try it on the next one . Cheers Stefan
14. April 2018 at 22:45:14
Phenix Lol I was about to say the same as Stefan
14. April 2018 at 22:47:37
Peter Hardy Don't you dare touch it Spanjaard. It's PERFECT!
14. April 2018 at 23:01:08
Kerry COX From what you have posted for all of us to ponder. There is a big fat zero to worry about. As this is as good as it gets. Absolutely.
Salute. :) :)
15. April 2018 at 00:20:17
Alec K Excellent work indeed
15. April 2018 at 01:43:39
Spanjaard i am glad you also like it. and no, i will not touch it! well, there is something i want to do, but that will be a base and maybe find some suitable transparent box for it :)
15. April 2018 at 08:59:23
Peter Hardy Keep the dust off her Spanjaard!
15. April 2018 at 09:02:00
Spanjaard i will if i can :)
15. April 2018 at 09:24:06
Phenix For the transparent box: I strongly recommend glass 4mm . It's way easier to glue together than plexiglas, it doesn't scratch like plexiglas and it's way easier to cut ( with a good glass cutter ) than plexiglas or you can ask the glass seller to cut it to size ( even more easier ) . And btw, it's easier to clean than plexiglas .
15. April 2018 at 15:33:00
Manuel Schwarzenberger Wow this is absolutly stunning..... great Work mate!
15. April 2018 at 17:04:51
Martin Oostrom It's a year since Spanjaard posted this. :D
It's so good, it just can't stay hidden for too long.
15. April 2018 at 17:11:14
Spanjaard thanks for the information Phenix, i need to look for a glass dealer. and get it done, i like your idea. specially about being easier, harder, and i am sure it will look better than any form of plastic after some time :)
thanks Manuel and of course Martin. it is a pleasure to see this one coming back from time to time, i am not going to deny it :)
15. April 2018 at 17:37:27
Martin Oostrom Over 300 comments. Getting to Christian Bruer levels ;)
15. April 2018 at 18:28:46
Kerry COX Spanjaard. If contained in glass. Get some expert advice from the Glaziers or have someone do it professionally, as this build deserves the best.
15. April 2018 at 20:18:54
Spanjaard thanks Kerry, that is a nice compliment
Martin,not yet 300, and half of them are mine saying thanks... I wish i could work with PE a fraction as good as Christian can :)
15. April 2018 at 22:45:57
Kerry COX WHAT. ? You have skills that I am sure Christian would want. :) :) :) PE is a world apart, and practice makes it better.
16. April 2018 at 00:08:38
Peter Hardy Looks like 307 before my comment Spanjaard. It's official, your in esteemed company now Mate!!
16. April 2018 at 03:19:47
Spanjaard Thanks Kerry and Peter :)
i was looking at the number of comments on top of the page (previous comments), which of course does not include the ones in the screen, so yes, it is more than 300
16. April 2018 at 05:32:48
Kerry COX LOL. And counting. :) :)
16. April 2018 at 06:47:21
Dmitry Borisov Excellent work!
16. April 2018 at 08:15:59
Sebastian Meyner Great work mate
16. April 2018 at 10:33:14
Cuajete Now a comments more. Congratulations one more time! ;)

Kerry COX Phantom kits are hard to 'Get Right", meaning, that phantom 'look'.
This is a wonderful example of how a phantom should look like. .
A superb build Spanjaard. :)
Salute.
10. January at 01:54:16
Paul Moore Amazing!
10. January at 03:15:43
Ronny Verlaek Nice nice nice nice nice nice work. GENIAL
10. January at 03:21:39
Spanjaard thanks Paul, Ronny and specially Kerry. your comments make me really happy. specially now that i am not being able to dedicate much time to new models ....

Kerry COX Master modeller Spanjaard, it's a pleasure to give you a 'thumbs up' mate. ;)

Hans Robben A bit glossy for my taste but a very nice result regardless. Some great attention to detail here. I will be picking up a few tips and tricks from this build in mine for sure.

10. January at 07:42:51

Stuart Perry Bloody hell Spanjaard that's on another level!
Mind. Blown.
10. January at 21:54:47
Spanjaard thanks a lot Stuart, but you have gone further than me in a veeeery much shorter time ;)
10. January at 22:05:47
Stuart Perry Ha! Still a heck of a lot to learn mate. Guess t's a lifelong investment (I say lifelong- 49 is pretty old to start a hobby like this) ???? how long have you been at it?
10. January at 22:09:30
Kerry COX Grasshopper. 'Patience produces perfection'. ;)
10. January at 22:09:38
Spanjaard Well, many of us started very young, and stopped for 20+years, and got back to it at 40's for example. it is never too late if you enjoy :) and something tells me you do :D :D
still a heck of a lot to learn for all of us, specially since new techniques and materials are appearing every day :)
11. January at 05:53:29
Kerry COX A great observation and well put Spanjaard. ;)
I am happy to say that I have not 'resisted' the new technologies that have become part of what is our hobby.
But creative and adventurous people still have a place among us. Especially those who can make something out of 'nothing'. :)

Spanjaard thanks Gunther, Pierre and Clifford. i did not expect this build to be back in the newsfeed after a year! Stuart must have found it by accident :)

Cuajete I agree with Lode. It still is a pleasure to look at the photos. Congrats again ;)
15. January at 09:02:30
Kerry COX I totally agree with all Cuajete and Lode have said, and nothing gives me greater pleasure than browsing through all the members and friends builds that have been posted over the years, and there are some wonderful examples of the hobby we love on display. :)
Like a display case you always wished you had. hehehehehe
15. January at 10:57:15

16. January at 12:42:10
Lode Schildermans Too much credit, my friend.
16. January at 13:06:24

Bryn Crandell Finished model looks amazing . Great job on a wonderful kit. As for the ladder, keep it unweathered. Just came out of the paint shop.
