So, I dare to call that one finished! The kit itself has been an absolute pleasure to build save for some verrrryyyyyy few things, that were a bit ambigous in the manual, some fiddly things and some decals that are bigger than on the decal instructions.
All in all I cursed far, far less than with my late Revell kits and I already decided on getting another Academy F-4 in the near future!
Worksmanship-wise: it's a bit mixed. I managed to damage the chevron-decal (but think I fixed it alright), had some major airbrushing hiccups - could have been better, but it still has been a ton of fun AND I think I managed to rectify all major errors rather nicely so I am really proud right now.
Next kit will be a smaller / faster / quicker one, though
