Stunning details Daniel 👍
Eric, Konrad, Harry WhiteGlint and Dietmar, thank you for your nice comments and welcome!
mini-update: sculpted some cabin accessoires from milliput
They look quite good
Daniel, dude! Great scuplting skills. Contemplated something similar for my Panther, but bailed on the idea. Youre killing it. Looking forward to more.
Spanjaard and Casey, thanks again mates 🙂
Casey, in 1:35 everything is easier, I guess I would have shied away from it in 1:48 as well, so my respects to what you are achieving in that scale! 👍

I Really love your work Daniel. The weathering looks spot on to my eye. Some real lovely details added....and it's VF-161. What's not to love..! Well done Sir. 😉
Oh how we rejoice when they get on their own legs for the first time... the first shaky stand, bravely resisting the urge to get seated on the tail... (guess not really a topic with the Phantom LG layout... 😄 )
It looks sublime already and can (and will...) only get better from here... Metalwork & Weathering, all fantastic - but I can´t decide which side looks better - top/belly... 👍 Some models would really benefit from a presentation on a turning skewer... 😉
It is beautiPHul!

Damn...what a lifelike presentation of your build. 😳
Definetely an eye catcher - awesome paintwork and weathering, Daniel, congrats! 👍👍👍
Beautiful work, congrats 👍
I didn't expect anything else 😉
Wow, that's a great build Daniel.
Awesome Daniel! Congrats to this very very nice flyout 🙂!
I agree with everyone above. Your in flight photos are excellent.
Thank you very much guys! I am myself pretty happy how it turned out, especially since it kinda gave me a hard time?
Wow! It looked realistic!
thank you for the compliment zhou!
Amazing work man!! 54 looks so real!! One question I hope you don't mind me asking; where did you score those ground figures in that scale?
This bird looks so damn real 👍 Great weathering!
thank you NTT and bughunter!
The deck crew is actually recruited from different kits, green shirt from the Tamiya Tomcat, plane captain is a frankenstein, I made a cast from the green shirt and reassembled him, red shirt is from the Academy Hornet and the white shirt is a former air force guy from the Academy 32002 set. He got a helmet added onto his beanie.
But if you are looking for really amazing figures, look no further than here (worth every cent):
The shading is perfect! I love it!
thanks mate, appreciate it!
Very nice build Daniel ?
@paul: thanks again mate, does that mean it gave you trouble?
many thanks arif!
First, I made mine in-flight. So although it's a nice way to show off the ordnance in a turn, it lost some of the detail. Second, I haven't perfected the engine discoloration that you did so well. Third, after I painted the top the color you recommended, I didn't like it and painted it another color that seemed a better match. After THAT color, I didn't like that one and now I like your color better. Whatever! It looks good and I'm progressing and having fun. But part of the fun for me is of course always improving so I appreciate folks who show their work on Scalemates. It's helps all of us become better.
Very rare to see PLAAF aircraft. Your model catch my eye! Nice build!
Many thanks zhou!
Thats true, still a niche topic, but I guess that we'll see a lot of new interesting PLA machinery emerging in the future.

yeeah! seems there will soon be some more choices for rhino fans like me 👍 👍
Will be interesting to see how HB will compete against Meng's Rhino release 🙂 Now, only Kitty Hawk is still missing the party 😄
Still looks a little strange to me seeing a Super in 'Golden Dragon' markings!
Since its considerably cheaper than the Meng offering, it will be interesting to see how accurate it is and how the build is - but definetely overdue that the Rhino gets more love.
Flory models made an interesting comparison (independently)

?Nice stencil: "No step" home-made I imagine ?
this marking is all in color, it changes after the "low visibility" version
Many thanks Konrad Alexander and Juskifo!
Roll-out or fly-out in this case is just a matter of days 🙂
The metal stencils are from an eduard set, I dont regret that purchase, especially as I got more 1/32 Hornets waiting in line
the bug is operational!

Thank you James and Rui!
Now she is resting on her own (flat) wheels
What a humiliation for a once proud diva ...
Impressive painting/weathering/whatever work mate 👍
Superb weathering Daniel 👍...the once-mighty Fishbed tucked away like a cast-off, a shame.
Very cool work .but the masks from the cockpit were not removed probably .in my albums I also tried to age this model.
Well she bears it like a man as slavo says 😉
Thanks a lot Roland, Jos and Alexander!
True, the masks are still on, but will of course be removed in time - were not done yet after all. Yesterday my scenic materials arrived after several years err, months of waiting...(man, even a GB went up in the meantime) and I hope I can put that to good use soon.
As a backup I also ordered some ready to use instant vegetation (just add water... 😉 )
