    RR Spey powered RAF Phantom conversion

    Ok. A small update. On the British Phantoms the fuel dump valves were shortened to fit the smaller aurcrafr carriers. The RAF ones had them too. Just cutting off the J-type valve, filing shorter and put the valves at a short dihedral stance. Quick and easy. Cees

    Thanks chaps. But it is no masterclass, just plodding along until something familiar emerges. Such as the basic shape of the fintop. Still needs details such as engraving of access panels and fairing it in with mr surfacer. The shorter fueldumping pipes to follow. Cees

    By your command....... The plastic inner rings of the Revell tape rolls are 3 cm in diameter and perfect for the exhaust cans although they need to 1.5 cm long but that is no problem. We come to that later. First to see how to make the deeper rear section. Having Frank's article doesn't mean it's easy. Cees

    Gaz, it is supposed to look very much different from the US Phantoms.

    Got me some goodies for the cockpit. And the intakes have been cemented in place. I feel a sanding and Milliput session coming up. Cees

    It takes a lot of cutting, adding plastic and sanding to get a reasonable fit. But this is as good as it gets. Milliput will be used to smooth things out. Hope you like. Cheers Cees

    You are right Jeroen, compared to that figure the rocket is huge. Cees
