Very nice Johan.
I understand that you have a tough time with the decal since the opacity is the main problem. But you did well. How's the Hasegawa kit?

Thanks Jackson for the "Like"
Hey Bud .. Yup, the decals were ancient old but was lucky enough it was sealed within all these time, turned out well..somehow. The kit? Well...standard hasegawa offerings but major parts mould in blue plastic which isn't my favorite ..can be brittle as I found out on a different kit.
Overall, it took a little more effort to get it almost right.

A'haaa... Kathy's Toys, fond memories on that place. Used to drool looking at them displayed. Thanks for the encouragement Brian... I got more of these Phantoms to go before trying to build all of them in the next life time...Hahahaha

Great model Brutus - I am impressed with those who take on a nice shiny subject like an aerobatic jet

Hey...thanks for the kind words. Trying my next aerobatic aircraft, Bae Hawk 'Red Arrows' in 48 scale. At present, it's primed and ready for the next stage.
