Thunderbirds F-4E with barf bag

Recommended Posts

Not doing a "real" WIP but I had to share this first stage.

Going to do the media relations F-4E Thunderbird, #8. So that being said I figured the LUCKY B in the back might have not quite been ready for the flight.

Hence, bend the arms and add a barf bag. Still going to add a bit of detail but wanted to show this photo. This kit apart from the tape belts, barf bag and decals will be OOB.

Looks like I better take another less blurry photo.

That's original! I like it! By the way, I had the idea of Tom Cruise giving the Russian pilot the bird while inverted. Would make a cool diaroma!

looks great. I love the idea of the barf bag! It's the little things like that that makes a god model.

Looks good shawn

but i think it might need a light panel wash maybe with some light gray or something

I gave it some, clearly not enough. 4 coats of future has thickened the panel lines too much to do it again.

Looks great!!!! :thumbsup: The Thunderbird Phantom is my favorite T-Bird aircraft as this was the first time I got to see an aerobatic team live. What decals did you use for this build?

I plan on building a Thunderbirds Phantom one of these days but a good set of decals are not thick on the ground!

Have fun modeling!

Mike

CAM decals. Rather expensive if I remember correctly. They have been in the stash a number of years.

Phantom, There have been a lot of "Bravo" or backseat riders in the F-16D's and the F-18D's of the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels who have sold Buicks while riding. (Buuuuuiick!!!) Those pilots don't like hearing that "noise" either. The folks who really hate it are the maintenance people. Who do you think gets clean-up detail? The pilot? I think, NOT!!! I guess after all of the F-4's that you have built, you need to spice things up a bit to avoid boredom. You did it on this one, and it's a very true incident that happens quite a lot. My next challenge for you is a model of a backseater passing out with his eyes rolling back in his eye sockets. Look up some live shots on YouTube. Some of those are really funny. Their head will be in almost any position (chin on chest, rolling to the right or left, etc. - Use your imagination.) Great job on the "puker."
