I was lucky with this kit being able to
pick it up second hand for virtually nothing, then came the
accessories and decals! Its the Hasegawa FG.1 kit which is
a great kit and comes with lots of Brilliant RAF decals that
have been filed away. I used the model alliance sheet for
the RN phantoms which is a mind boggling sheet of great phantoms.
The option I chose was for an altered Phantom that had the
markings changed by the US Navy whilst on deployment. It
made for a different look
to the plane. The seats are from Verlinden and were a joy
to paint.The model is finished off in Xtracolour Extra Dark
Sea Gray And White. The masking for the perfect demarcation
lines was a real pig, you cannot see it on these shots bu
the white on the underside cmes to a point behind the nose
cone. I used Alclad for the metal parts.
