Hi Jim and a warm welcome to the forum. Should be good to see two Phantom's being built at the same time and again great to see a second hand kit being finally put together.

Thanks Chaps, I the moment I have had no luck in sourcing the appropriate decals in 1/48. I will keep looking on the old tinternet but may end up making them myself.

Cheers Jim

I know its not THE ones you are after, but if you want some that are a bit different, how about Buy Eagle Strike ESP48268 1:48 scale from Hannants. We sell Aircraft decals (military), models, decals, paints & books.

Wow Jim, you've set yourself a task there mate. But what model it'll be when it's done.

I'll look forward to seeing it finished.

Well Chaps it is done I have ordered the decals for Archangel 2005 from Syhart, I had been intending to do the Black Bunny but as I need to improve the old skill level and haven't put a decal on a kit since the mid seventies this should be a good exercise :exercise3:

Flash?

View attachment 59329Hi All made a start on the Phantom, started to clean off some flash and do a bit of priming on the cockpit. I have one silly question (probable the first of many) not knowing a great deal about aircraft and or pilot equipment, can anyone tell me is the ridge on the helmet supposed to be there? I don't think it's part of the sun visor, however I may be wrong. sorry about the quality of the picture, the kit is a Revell 1/48 phantom c/d.

Many Thanks

Jim

I think that it is safe to remove that ridge. A bit hard to see in the photo, but I am pretty certain it's just the mould line.

Also while carrying them around the visor would most likely be covered with a black cloth to keep them clean and smudge free.

Right then, I have made the fuba of all fubas:fool:, I did intend to do the Archangel 05 in 1/48, however in my lack of kit building experience and total nievity not to mention lack of thinking at the time have ordered 1/72 archangel decals. So realising my plank of a mistake have gone out and purchase a 1/72 phantom anniversary. So suffice to say i have jumped in at the peruvial deep end, and will now be attempting (and that's the operative word) the archangel and the black bunny.
