Not sure if looking at the real thing or a model. Excellent job Daniel.

Fantastic job and a really cool & fitting final photo-session... The finished model looks more like a real Phantom than your project title pic! 😄

Especially on pics 3 & 9, there really is no way to say it's not a photo from an aircraft magazine 👍. Excellent job all over + I need to mention the engine-metal/wear job is absolute top class as seen on pic 13!

Stunning bird, as has been said you could so easily say this was the real thing. Weathering is sublime. A masterclass in how to do this. Thankyou for sharing this

Absolutely stunning....what attention to detail. Going to be using your builds for sure as a future reference. And the photography is outstanding as well, certainly brings an extra realism layer to the finished build. Aspirational!

Thank you very much for your far too kind comments mates! The poster background really performed though it looked so out of place on my balcony 🙂

@ Mr. Gunslinger: Again? 😄 fastest gun in the west 🙂

@Flight Line Media: The kit truly is a marvel of engineering, flawless, easy, fits without glue (damn, just realized I still didnt glue the fin and the vertical stabs section^^) Costs a bit more, but IMO absolutely worth it, just puts a smile on your face when you build this. The decals wipe that gleeful smile right off though. If I'd build it again I would go with aftermarket decals. But I heard (afterwards) that there actually exists a "Tamiya Mark Fit Super Strong" product which seems to beat them into submission...maybe a ...solution ..hehe

@Eric: Si, all I added was a little alu foil in the cockpit which no one will ever see again...oh and the silver pressure hoses on top of the seats, which are quite prominent

@Erik&Spanjaard: Correct, its the base for the lazy people:
