  1. Another vote for the Zvezda Mig. It looks more sleek. It just looks right.
  2. I Agree. I think Platz can step up by re-releasing some of their decals (but tweaked for the FM kit): https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10098039 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10030445 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10030444 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10025472 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10024717
  3. I always thought the old 1/72 ESCI ( now Italeri re-boxed) NATO pilots set had one pilot that closely resembled him: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/esci-ertl-243-nato-pilots--144066 https://www.thoughtco.com/thmb/fbzQMwZAHpDtlZkzlmCw4ZCbSmk=/753x565/smart/filters:no_upscale()/robin-olds-large-57c4b8985f9b5855e5f4ed64.jpg http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=603 (3rd row. He's the one with the mustache and one foot on the toolbox)
  4. Stumbled upon this. This Japanese modeler's man-cave is something else: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuiuxX5dHig You can use the 'CC' & the 'Settings' button for auto-translation to English ( although the translation is not perfect and is a little weird at times).

  5. By Wolfpack rebox, were you referring to their RF-5A/F-5A kits: https://www.hlj.com/1-72-scale-northrop-f-5a-skoshi-tiger-wlfwp17203 https://www.hlj.com/1-72-scale-northrop-rf-5a-freedom-fighter-rokaf-reconnaissance-fighter-wlf17202 I'm with you, Moritz. I was hoping that after their Mirage F.1s, they'd do the Tigers next.
  6. Happy Birthday, my friend! May you have a long, happy, healthy, blessed life
  7. Gene, for your future JASDF RF-4EJs and RF-4Es : https://dxmdecals.com/products-1 Scroll down for the 1/72 ones. Leave at least one of the RF-4EJ sheets for me. Been trying to get my hands on them 😀
  8. I didn't know Italeri reboxed Fujimi's kit. Never seen this boxing before. But the parts break-down do look very similar.
  9. Can still be found : https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10341050 To be honest, when it comes to British Phantoms, I'd take the Fujimi one over the Airfix one anyday. Airfix has nice features but a bit too over-engineered for me. Also the Fujimi panel lines have a finesse that Airfix lacks ( Airfix ones are slightly too deep for my liking). Sorry off topic. Back to F-4C/Ds.
  10. Just out of curiosity, where are Freedom Models from? Taiwan, Hong Kong, China? They seem to make competing models with the Taiwanese AFV Club ( eg F-CK-1 Ching Kuo)
  11. Your subtle panel line highlighting is perfect! What technique did you use? Thank you .
  12. Probably have to airbrush the main colour inside and then drybrush or wet wash the details inside ( like how it's done for panel line washes) with a fine tip brush. Or maybe pour in the primer colour, swish it around, pour it out. Then repeat with the main colour. Similar to what some people do for F-16 intake trunking with white paint.
