Yu,
I apologize - i should be more specific in my question..
I'm interested in the stand visible on this photo


I should have read the question more carefuly.
It is my regret that I did not join this forum early. If I had joined early and practiced to read between the lines, my listening comprehension in TOEIC test would have been different :D.
Its magnifying glass. Originally it has construction shown in picture 1 but with that construction I can not cut paper. So detached basement and fix it reverse side as shown in picture 2 so that I can cut paper beneath the lense though needs weight to hold it.
And happened to find out it can be used as stand too (pic 3).

Yu, may I ask how you make the wheels? Judging from the single GPM plane I made so far, they don't provide parts for the black part of the wheels...


I should have taken picture. The kit has black painted wheel parts for both sides. I cut 1mm thick card boards as same diameter as black color parts provided in the kit then glued them together and filed it filling dent with puty for plastic model. Finally painted it with matt black lackquer.

When made missiles I made a plant. That is to chamfer edges where black color lines are printed. Then round up nose part making original outer side inside so that black lines will not show up.

I believe my plan must be perfect but the result is not satisfactory. Analyzing the cause I knew I wasn't bad. Paper was bad. They wouldn't listen to me.

Hi Norm,

You do not look dumb
But you once dumped the old card and they might have flown to a dam. When they fell from the top of the dam they might have screamed dammit.

Thank you.
I must admit that I expected something more refined but I like it even more when it turned out to be a magnifying glass - this way we can have two tools instead of one ;)

Thanks for the explanation on the wheels, Yu :super:
Regarding paper quality, I agree: GPM models have a very fine print but the paper is too thick :(

Hi Norm,

I am stunned by the fact that stand has many meanings. Thank you for your instructive English lesson.

Thick paper causes crinkling. To remove it I even tried to give it a press (this is not a joke. I was serious) but it didn't work I might be the stupidest paper modeler in the world :zweifel:. Finally rubbed up skin surface with metal to remove crinkling.
Anyhow glued finished missiles on the place.

As I can see, the "Winglets" fits very well. At the "Mig Eater"-Model there was some difficulty.

Thank you for your compliment that more than I deserve.
Please feel free to ask me at any time if I can ever be of help to you.
You can count on me. I am not a master of double talk though mass tar ( I must cut down cigaret) :D

Good night
Tomorrow morning I have to leave home early on business and miss card modeling for several days. :(

Stephan, Cyana and Thomas thank you for your kind notes.

@Thomas
I am sorry for your serious trouble. Isn't there any solution?

BTW taking this opportunity let me also post pics having pitot tubes.
Now completely finished.

BTW I have been looking for static dischargers of real plane watching many photos but... :rotwerd:
I think static dischargers are installed trailing edge of wing, vertical fin and elevator.... :(

Hi Yu,
yes static dischargers are the little antennas at the trailing edges. Like this:

However, I don't have photos of the ones of the Phantom.

Jan, thank you very much

Now I found out an article describing about F4E of 4th Tactical Fighter Wing at Seymour Johnson AFB. According to the article static dischargers were removed by the late '80s.
All the picture I found out were obviously taken with digital camera so they were all taken recently. That perhaps because I was not able to find out static dischargers.

Apparently, only F-4E's equipped with ARN-101 (whatever that is) had a bunch of static dischargers, all of which were later removed, except for two on the vertical fin. The other way round, this could mean that non-ARN-101 planes didn't have any of them in the first place.

If you want to equip them - here's a link:

just to add some info - ARN-101 is a weapon delivery, fire control and navigation computer, which was installed to replace original analog systems.
as for static dischargers, i'll try to find some source when i have some time, but in general, as far as i know, the dischargers on trailing edges were really removed at i think early 80s (i remember that i've read somewhere that they were subject to fall off the plane during take off, but i'm not sure it was the reason); but i thought that two dischargers on tail were kept - Michael's explanation with ARN sounds quite logical anyway.

This week I couldn't afford to take time for modeling. Even this small build give me satisfaction.
I am completely addicted to paper modeling :D
