Smile Grumman F9F-2 Phanter in 1/100 scale

Well friends! One more addition for my collection 1/100. It is treated thoroughly of the naval fighter Grumman F9F Phanter used in the War of Korea. The model originally in the scale 1/48 it is of a Spanish publisher me scan and I reduced for the scale. The model in spite of the old fashion it was projected has a surprising precision. The problem is the lack of the landing gear (that had to be built in scratch) and the colors that are completely wrong (very pale) :(. In the future I will use the formers of that model in the kits of Fiddlers Green Phanter.





The base simulating a flight deck went a necessary trick to balance the landing gear since there was not as putting weight in the nose, but I think he gave a charm more the in the model.

See you the next! :p

Ahhh...another 1/100 scale modeller 8v)

Nice build on the Panther. I have that book of Korean War jets and have wanted to scan and build at 1/100 scale. Looks like the kits might go together well. However, my copy of the book has badly registered color so I need to actually redraw and color them before I can build.

Do you plan to do the -86 and the -15 also?

Thank you friends!

Nobi, as he had already written in another board, the Me-109 it is already printed in the construction line.

Ashrunner, I have some books of the Ediciones Aeroteca that my sister brought of Spain there are really some years ago the impression quality is weak, but as I don't know redraw very well no resistance in building Phanter, at least my copy of the book is not out of registration and I already converted for 1/100 F-86 and MiG-15.

For me the scale 1/100 is very entertaining and interesting why in space terms is extremely viable for a great collection and it is not as small as to 1/144 to build...
