Fisher Models 1/32 Douglas F4D Skyray
By Terry Chan
Just finished this absolutely beautiful resin kit from Fisher. The fit was good, details were exquisite, and the decals were first rate! IMHO, it was an even better kit than the Cutlass. In fact, I like it so much that I plan on buying another one later.
Everything was from the box, except the canopy actuating rod which came from a F-16, and the IP bezel decals from Mike Grant.
The paints used were mostly Gunze acrylics. Metallic paint on the exhaust was Alclad, oleo struts were painted with Gunze Super Metallic. This time, I used Alcad Klear Koat gloss for the gloss surface for decals. It's a lacquer based product, but went on both Gunze and Tamiya acrylics just fine. The final top coat was Alclad Klear Koat "light sheen". Weather was kept to a minimum.
