Death Rattlers F4 Phantom
Posted 03 March 2017 - 03:09 PM
This is a model I have wanted to build for a while. It's a marines vfma323 f4 phantom from the late 1960's. it's based on the Tamiya F4 c/d kit and I know not truly accurate to the f4b but close enough for me. I was fascinated by how worn these jets got in service and really tried hard to capture that in this model. Kit went together with no problems but boy is it big when finished! It's also the first kit I have completed where I have added the aircrew. I really like it as it brings life to the model and definitely something I will do more of in the future. The only after market used are resin seats and of course the decals. Hope you enjoy looking. Cheers. Matt

Wow....worn indeed, specially like that radome, it's not the biggest aircraft part, but you might easily overdo the chipping and wearing on such a thing, well done.....!!
everyone in the circuit switch off your radios....now switch 'em back on again......
