  1. Well then, another sneak build finished. I had a perfectly good reason for not making a WIP thread on this, it was namely started at our annual plastic camp for middle aged...well, men. It was held in the last weekend of May and it was fun fun fun :D A link to the event....it´s all in Swedish but the pics speaks more than a thousand words! http://ipmsgoteborg.clubdiscussion.net/t5046-plastkollo-6-hjalmared-2017-05-26-28 Anyhew, I started this build there... I´t the famous Tamyia Tomcat in 1/48th scale and I wanted it in early VF-1 livré. That meant some converting, hacking and slashing :D I´put in the steels beach early Tomcat resin, a boat tail, gun grill and IRST chin pod. Well me being me I put in more resin: Aires burner cans and bang seats followed by Eduard rear mirriors and wheels, Master alfa probes and Fighter Town decals. It all went together surprisingly well and the decals worked reasonably too even if they were meant for the Hasegawa kitty. The Tamyia kit is simply lovely to build...everything just fits!it´s more like assembly than building actually but I managed to find spots to putty :P The buNo 158982 I decided to build was one of the first to be lost to compressor stall that was plaguing the TF-30 engines, it was lost in January 1975 in the South China Sea outside the Philipines, both pilot and RIO ejected safely. THanx for looking Cheers!
