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

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, wow and wow, that takes some real modelling skill to take the razor saw out like this. Just bought my first F4J - ZM. Probably will not be cutting this first one up......

Love it :)

 

I am not a huge jet guy, but I know this is one of the Holy Grail's of modelling and I can recognise & enjoy seeing real modelling skill on display..

 

Excellent job 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.

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.
