Thanks for the extra info FS, much appreciated.

I might practice with a couple on som old Pooch Spooks I have packed away from the dark days before HM released Ritchie, then choose my HM recipients..

The place I bought them from ships same day if you order before they do their shipments (they have a timer on their website ) and I got in early enough to make yesterday's post - I can't wait to get them

Looking at this picture, it has to be the most beautiful of all Phantoms produced in metal.
A fine tribute to Cunningham and Driscoll, of the warrior breed......

Does anyone know if final production pictures have been released on this model. I am very anxious to see if they get the markings correct and the weapons load correct. On the latter I think you can adjust the weapons load to reflect what Showtime looked like at launch on 5.10.72 which is no wing tanks just a centerline tank, 4 sidewinders on the inner pylons with 6 Rockeye 20 bombs, and two Sparrows in the aft wells and the front wells empty.

Even more important I want the markings on that date to be correct which means NO MiG on the stabilizer and two North Vietnamese flags on the intake.

If Hobby Master would have included Rockeyes it could be configured correctly. Strangely enough, the one who got it correct was Herpa on their 1:200 version with both marking and weapons load accurate on 5.10.72.

Any word about this release? eBay US doesent show any of these even as pre-orders.....yet online etailers do! I guess it suppose to be an March/April delivery?

I want to pair this with the Richthofen F-4 that's on its way

In my warp sense of aviation fantasy....I figure both will be nose to nose .... It would be the Baron vs the Duke....both War Aces in their own right and in their own time periods...albeit Richthofen through science fiction would have to be catapulted forward in time to be in his F-4 namesake...but hey...it's my fantasy

HM's version is showtime 112....I do believe.

Historically I think it was Duke's Showtime 100 that did his award winning kills and then was shot down on his return .....I prefer that over HM's 112 which might have been his replacement afterwards......which also right now....there are two selling on eBay for about 96USD.

I have the HM ST100, and will be buying the AC version as soon as I possibly can, but I am no Richthofen either

Still, happy to do a side-by-side photoshoot (although I warn you in advance, it won't be one of the professional ones we get from some members - I just snap with my phone, sometimes in the kitchen..) when the day comes.

no, dac has bestowed upon you the title of "insane collector". it's under your nick for everybody to see so no, you're not an "ordinary collector".

yeah... there are other forums dedicated to professional photographers elsewhere and they do some amazing work, not just with lightboxes but flash umbrellas too

My regular guy - Armchair Aviator - emailed me last night to say he has now paid for these, so they should be being shipped very shortly

Looks like March Release was right, and not long to wait now!

If those are final production photos I'm disappointed. I was really hoping they would do the markings as they were on May 10, 1972. So in regard to that aside from the Rockeye bombs HM's version is more accurate. So the reigning champ with respect to armament and marking remains the Herpa 1:200 version. I still have to decide with version, AC or HM I will keep.

The copies of this model for Armchair Aviator have reached Melbourne and so should be listed on his website soon!

That means I'm hoping to have my copy in my hands very soon too

I believe those photos posted by RJ are that of the FoV Showtime Spook.

Busy week for me, this is another F-4 I got for my collection.
Since I missed out on HM's "Showtime 100", it would be an obvious pick up for me.
I really like this model, howerver there are still some minor issuse with it.
Installation of the ordanaces are a bit tricky, and there are just few parts still need a bit sanding to make them fit right.

In this picture anal-ysis...the top area of the AC version's nosecone and airframe lines leading from the edge of the windshield to the nosecone gives an overall bulbous look....as compared to a pic of the real Showtime 100.

All things being equal ... The front landing gear of the real plane on the ground shows the piston compressed...whereas the models piston is extended on the ground ...(un-natural?)


My 2 cents...

the pic of the real plane is at an angle judging from the windshield rim... but granted, the model nose does looks bulbous.

as for the pistons... perhaps duke lost some weight?

I think he is still in prison....so yeah..he could have lost weight if he was some other convict's girlie girl.....or he could have bulked up to be the prison shot caller

The thing about the real plane in this cropped picture ...is that the plane does not have anyone sitting in the cockpit to weight it down and compress the piston. (The full picture of the plane shows that).

I just received my copy, and am delighted with it.

Very nice release indeed, I think I may even have a new favourite!

I actually haven't assembled them as yet, but that is because I am waiting on a desk I need to position first.

The desk will be delivered this week - that will be my workbench for modelling
