Although this kit has been around a few years now, with a little enhancement it still builds into an impressive model.

 

Paints are from Gunze and Tamiya, the sidewinder caps and flags are from Aerobonus. The decals are from Yellowhammer, which I couldn't get in the UK and had to order them from the US.

 

I used the Aires cockpit and exhaust, the cockpit needed a little work to get it to fit correctly, but its worth the effort. Eduard Zoom products for the cockpit instrument and ancillary panels.

 

The colour scheme of the J model F4's in UK service is a highly discussed topic as they were painted in US colours prior to delivery.

 

This particular aircraft - ZE356 - was re-painted shortly after delivery to standard RAF Lo Viz scheme. I chose to depict an aircraft that represents an "Alert" aircraft hence the live weapons fit of Skyflash, Sidewinder and a central SUU-23 gun pod.

 

Thanks for looking

 

Andy

:yahoo: PHABULOUS Phantom.. 

:thumbsup:

 

 

 

the photos are excellently taken that I actually thought that THAT was the real Phantom, Especially looking at the cockpit. It's very smartly build and I think it's the BEES KNEES!! :punk:

 

 

 

 

The load  out is to die for ......STUPENDOUS Build. :wub:
