My latest project.  This is something I did in between the F-16 Group build and the start of the F-18 group build.  Hope you like.

First shot is for April Fools day!  I know I should have posted this yesterday but I didn't get to it.

 

This is Hasegawa's original release of the F-4G kit no. P-4.  The copyright date says 1987!  It was due to be built after 35 years!  I put a black box cockpit into it and GT resin intakes (first time adding after market to a Hasegawa F-4) so I had to leave the canopy open which I don't normally do.  I used the kit decals which were quite fragile.  The tail codes broke up on me so I had to use some equally old Detail & Scale codes and serial.  The rest went on with careful application.  I substituted the centerline tank with a left over from an Academy F-4 and a Maverick missile from a Kinetic F-16.  I also riveted the entire model.  That was fun.  Thanks for checking it out.

I used Mr Hobby lacquers and a future gloss coat for the decals and Vallejo acrylic flat final coat.  I was a long time model master user.  I started looking for a new paint maker a year or so ago.  I wanted to do acrylics thinking they were more indoor friendly, but I have had too many occasions when they didn't hold up to masking.  In the last month I tried the Mr Hobby lacquers and they hold up really well.

So that's what a wild weasel looks like : )    Always in awe with your work, Geoff!  And the way you're cranking out one build after another I can only dream of doing.

You nailed this beast, awesome!

i have the same kit, but built it in the grey Desert Storm colours, where I doubted to make the same like you did. Great kit.
