  8. I couldn't agree more the organizers did a great job and it great watching all the other Tigers coming to life Gordon
  9. Hi all I hope you don't mind but took a pic of the aircraft I completed for this GB. This now brings my total of Tiger paint schemes to 41 I have really enjoyed seeing all the builds and have been really impressed by the quality of the builds I can only hope to achieve the same quality one day Gordon
  10. Final Tiger finished. I have really enjoyed this group build as it just happened to be my current build interest. Gordon
  11. Going to call this one done. Maybe rushed it a little and decals not the greatest as the tail art is not that great and looking at some of the reference pics show that the inside of the tanks have same markings as the outside but they were not included. Each of the sidewinders has a total of 21 decals on each one. The revel kit also has raised panel lines so detail not too great. There is however at least one major error that I have to admit too that only another set of decals could fix so choose to leave it and let you see if you can tell Same aircraft in a later scheme. I had complete this kit prior to the GB
  12. Thanks, I have one more Tiger almost ready to go should have it done by the deadline Gordon
  13. 1/72 Fujimi Phantom F3 and berna decals
  14. Very nice Swiss Hornet hope one day to build up your standard, awesome bug Gordon
  15. Well this is one is done little frustration had to raid the spares box as even though some parts were shown on the instructions they were not included in the kit. I think maybe another version of the kit must have made it into the box oh well its done. while researching decals for this build found this interesting info at the following link. (http://kitreview.com/reviews/tigermeetdecalsds_1.htm) Delays in the Panavia Tornado F2 program and a general reduction in RAF units resulted in the RAF acquiring 15 ex-US Navy and Marine Corps F-4Js to assist in the air defence of the UK. These airframes were reworked in a 'Life Extension Program' at the North Island, NAS, California. Modifications included RWR antennas on the engine air intakes, low intensity formation lights and general repainting. For the 28th Nato 'Tiger Meet' held at the Cameri Airbase, Italy in July, 1988. F-4J aircraft, British serial ZE-355/S attended this meet, but was originally only painted in the standard british RAF Grey scheme and '74' Sqd. standard black vertical tail plane. F-4Es from the 141st TFS, New Jersey ANG which were attending for the first time, also arrived, but were resplendent with a huge, dark grey tiger head painted on both sides of their noses. Not to be outdone, the RAF crews obtained colour paint from the nearest town and devised the tiger chomping on the soviet 'Red Star' as well as tiger stripes on the rudder, which has remained one of the most colourful and striking schemes ever applied to an F-4
