  1. I need help on the best way to do the camouflage paint schemes on F-4C Phantoms in the Southeast Asia (SEA) colors. First let me say that I have not built a model for over 50+ years - and yes, I did not stutter, and I doubt any of those models were as complicated to paint as the ones I chose now. The reasons I chose the F-4C was to show off our new U.S. Air Force paint product lines. Maybe this was a bad idea, but I have 3 planes already started and need your help to do the camouflage correctly. Cockpit has been built up, painted and placed in the fuselage. Seams have been filed and filled with putty and sanded. Same with the wings. The underside of the wings and fuselage are a single color, so that is not a problem on the 2 SEA schemes I have planned to do. Wheels, rockets, struts, and other small pieces are already painted as well. It is the upper fuselage and top of wings where the camouflage seems daunting. First question - after painting the undersides of the wings and fuselage, should I assemble the wings onto the fuselage before attempting the camouflage colors or do the camo colors on the separate pieces first, then assemble ? Instructions say to assemble first, but I'm reluctant to do that. Any help here ? Purchased masks from Gator Studios, as suggested on this forum, but that is where I stopped. Second question - since I have 3 aircraft to paint, can I reuse paint masks for all 3 models ? Should I trace the masks on plain paper and copy the design onto multiple pages of our masking paper (which can be printed on) and cut them out to use ? Any help from modelers who have done camouflage schemes on aircraft would be very useful. None of the aircraft that I am building are going to win prizes, I just want to show off our new paint colors on a model. Thank you in advance for any replies to this thread.
