  1. So has anyone figured out how to order this book? The above linked website is of no help (to me) ... at all. Gene K
  2. Gianni, As beautiful as I expected you would produce!!! Gene K
  3. Thanks Habu and Craig. Disappointing that the release of the F-2 (as well as the brass pitot tube set) is pushed back to May 2022: https://www.finemolds.co.jp/FP/FP48.html#AA53 Gene K
  4. Now that would be a treat!! I hope you are right, but clever ZM marketeers might have other ideas. Gene K
  5. When you said, "At last it is here!!! : ) : ) : )", I assumed your new-release anticipation was relieved. Looking forward to your builds! Gene K
  6. Congrats on finally getting the kit, and thanks for the excellent pictures. Yes, the 43 Euro is a fair price ... if you have the patience to wait a half year after release. But for someone more "in need", one could order four or more kits (for themselves and friends) from Japan, and receive them in 3-5 days after release in Japanese shops like HLJ and Hobby Search. Combined shipping would average about 6 Euro per kit. Gene K
  7. Thanks for all those beautiful shots, Gregg! Gene K
  8. A classic build revisited. Thanks. Gene K
  9. Gianni, What a treat to have you back on this project. Since it's nearly complete, it shouldn't be long before you start the FineMolds Phantom, correct? Hopefully you and your brother are doing well with the workshop! Gene K
  10. Thanks, Craig - great details. Pretty amazing how well the shots are lined up!! I'm anxious to see how well the Hasegawa B model parts will fit on the FineMolds A. In that regard, one can build the excellent Has A model and have the B model top front fuselage part left over ... all for the bargain price of only $13 at Plaza Japan!!! What are the external differences between the A and B models other than the two cockpits? Gene K
  11. Thanks for the Quinta links, Gabor - looks like a great set!! Hope you find time to get back to your build. Gene K
  12. How does 3D printing relate to cutting the molds? Gene K
  13. Thanks, Craig. Nice finds. Which scheme(s) will you be doing? Gene K
  14. Thanks for the competition clarification, JR. Gene K
  15. Nontas, I hope you can get back to modelling - I miss your fine builds. Gene K
  16. Have you finished this great build, Nontas? Gene K
  17. Nontas, Amazing work on that old tool. How has the model progressed? Gene K
  18. Quite a resource, Ben. Thanks. Except for the intake cover, that airplane and "accessories" is/was world-class immaculate. Gene K
  19. Thanks Craig! Hopefully will be listed on HLJ. Gene K
  20. How are your two builds going, Gabor? Beautiful work on the pitot tubes! Gene K
  21. Thanks Gabor and Craig. Hats off to FM! Hope to see clues that a two seater is/will be in the works! (Image courtesy of Hasegawa) Gene K
  22. If that scheme doesn't materialize, send a PM and I can help with a mask and/or an SVG file that you/she can use with the Cricut. Gene K
  23. As Captain Obvious points out, FineMolds currently produces 1/72 long nose (F-4E, F-4EJ, RF-4EJ) as well as short nose (F-4C, F-4J) Phantom kits. So I've posted cut files for canopy masks for the long nose as well as the short nose models. These files (.studio3) are for use with Silhouette cutters, but I've also included SVG files that can be used with other cutters like the Cricut ... or one can print the SVGs and cut manually. I just recently found this excellent Scale Models Paint Masks site, and think there's great potential there for growth as more foks become aware of it.
