Hello Folks,

This is my first post here… and my first post in english.
I’m french canadian and have some difficulties to wrote in english.
BUT, like a scale modelling, I do my best and I hope it will be ok.
Thank you for your understanding.

Today, I share with you an article I did on a French website: Fighters.
Well, this is a classical subject. The F-4E Phantom II from Tamiya in 1/32.
I used the Tamiya’s decal, the BlackBox cockpit and the Aires exhaust.
