it looks like, despite my best efforts to only partially mask, and spray away from the open areas, I got some of my overspray on my aluminum, so I will have to fix that.

Speaking from personal experience...when does that ever not happen? Big Smile

Still, lookin' good so far!

Wow that looks awesome!!! 

And I have to agree, not sure they's any way not to get some overspray somewhere... Bang Head

Justin, your Fort is gorgeous! That two-tone scheme looks great on such a 'compact' presentation. Well done!

The summer has ripped by so quickly...I didn't realize the GB's finish line was looming. I've got one last 'egg' on the griddle of the three I put forward at the start, so here it is--Hasegawa's well-known 'egg' F-4 Phantom:

Nice of Hasegawa to include 2 decal sheets for the Japanese and US versions. However, I think I'll do a few quick 'snips' to turn the -E/-EJ version into and F-4J; I've got a hankering for a little 'Marine Air' courtesy of an old set of laser-printed 1/144 decals in the stash, which should just about fit:

Due to the egg's 'abbreviated' architecture, the radome should work nicely as-is for the shorter-nose -J version. A few hacks as outlined below, and we should be in business.

I'll have to trade the kit's missiles for a little more 'Vietnam'-looking ordnance...and trim up the kit's AF-style underwing pylons to look more like the USN/USMC types.

More as things develop.

Greg: Ohhhh love the idea of the modifications for a whole new version. Looking forward to seeing how she comes out. 

 

BTW: I could extend the GB if anyone really wants to go on with this? I'd though about doing another next year if there's any interest.

Well....My son hasnt quite had the inspiration to build our Osprey Eggs, so an extension would have to be allmost indefinite!  lol

When we do build them, I will definitely add them to the thread whether it's cloased or not...

 

I did finish 'Little Miss Mischief' over the weekend...here are her "glamour shots":

Justin: She turned out awesome! Just added her to the front page. Your son is welcome to add her anytime after we're done here.
