Tamiya F-4EJ model kit in 1/32 scale
..continued from page 2 now with...
I picked the kit scheme of the JASDF no.305 squadron plane at Hyakuri Air Base.
OK, decalling started on this huge
model. Tamiya provides loads of decals and smaller stencils for this plane.
1. start a one side at work from there
(so upper, lower etc)
5. have on a piece of plastic bag
some Johnson Future/Pledge
available set there with a brush. Keep that surface wet.
7. position decal on the model
All decals were set to this model, it took 3 evenings and afternoons of time.
|Decalling was ready now, which took
quite some time but is very rewarding.
The various completed parts like undercarriages, flaps, antenna's and so on were now added.
The kit has the option to show the
radar, although the cone needs some work and the radar cries for more details.
The seats, obtained from True Details were detailed and the straps, harnasses painted green, dark grey and detail black with silver drybrushing. Seat buckles were added from metal (Reheat). The ejection activation chord on top were replaced made from yellow wire, with black stripes added with a black marker.
The cockpit now needed the final completion. Inside the cockpit various details were added like:
Around the airframe, various smaller
probes were added from metal as indicated in the Eduard set instructions.
The radar cone was set open and was
installed with metal pins and were for strength.
The parapack door was set open, with Eduard details added. From a red/white plastic bag a section was cut as inserted as parachute....
The model was now complete, here the results are seen.
NOTE: On first photos the armament with Sparrows and Sidewinder missiles are not yet seen fitted....
Radar details seen here again....
F-4EJ slotted stabilizer view as well. Note subtle variation is shades.
The JASDF F-4EJ CODE BUZZ 438 of no.305 squadron plane at Hyakuri Air Base"..... is it real?
rear view with tilted wing tip
|At the model, Sparrow missiles and Sidewinder missiles
were added. The Sparrow came from the kit, the Sidewinders from an Academy
F-16 kit in 1/32 scale.
Hope you like the end result. A nice 1/32 colourfull JASDF F-4EJ in the collection.
