  1. Continuing with the F-4 theme after the recently announced F-4 airframe data and VF-154 sheets, here are three "small" sheets covering USMC F-4 Phantoms in the Vietnam War. 32-032 three F-4B Phantoms of VMFA-323 Death Rattlers 32-033 two F-4J Phantoms of VMFA-232 Red Devils 32-034 one F-4J Phantom of VMFA-212 Lancers Each sheet will also include a set of the full airframe data (sheet 32-031). Estimated release in March. now available at: www.AOAdecals.com
  2. This sheet provides the extensive F-4 Phantom airframe data (including panel numbers/labels) for either an F-4B or F-4J. The airframe data included is the painted (open stencil) type of markings commonly seen in the 1960's into the early 1970's on USN/USMC F-4B and F-4J Phantoms. Includes placards for the landing gear, speed brakes, speed brake wells, auxiliary air doors, wing external fuel tanks, and main and nose gear doors. Also includes markings for all pylons, bomb adapter racks (inboard and outboard pylon types), and LAU-7 rail markings. Note that this is not the printed (full letter) s
  3. This will be somewhat limited release due to the nature of the subject since it will require a conversion set to make an F-4B out of a Tamiya 1/32 F-4 Phantom kit. As usual for AOA the subjects are from the Vietnam War with six options (3 different aircraft) for VMFA-115 Silver Eagles and two options for VMFA-314 Black Knights. It will include national insignia and the most common data stencils/markings (not complete F-4 airframe data). (The eagle markings look dark grey in these images but they're being printed in silver metallic.) Now in stock. Price $24 www.AOAdecals.com
  4. This F-4J Phantom scheme I wanted for probably 15+ years for myself and finally decided to do it and release it as a simple "low budget" sheet that features only the squadron specific markings. Although VMFA-334 Falcons has been covered before, the falcon insignia in particular was somewhat lacking in any scale until now. Also in order to keep cost down, only one aircraft is covered, although it can be represented either from Vietnam or later in 1969 when -334 were in Japan. (edit...) Contrary to what I initially planned, included will be national insignia and intake warnings as well as a few
  5. I had the opportunity to spend some time with the folks from Sierra Hotel Models while attending the IPMS Nats. Great folks all; Michael, Patrick, Casey and Rich. Unfortunately Erik was unable to attend so maybe next time. Here are some photos of their “revised†Intake/Ramp set for the latest tool Revell F/RF-4C/E/F. I say revised because they have replaced the engine “face†with a newly tooled piece.The new piece is totally redesigned with blades set for the proper direction of rotation CSIDG “bullet†fairing and support struts. The detail is IMO totally awesome see for yourself.
  6. I know "another" F-4 Phantom topic though not a completely new topic I though it needed its own topic and thread. First two photos are of my cockpit based on the Navy version then the USAF version. I am modifying the Tamiya cockpit to the primary structure common to all versions of the F-4 Phantom. The goal is to create a single basic cockpit tub that will accommodate equipment and additional structure necessary to allow a "plug & play" approach to the Phantom cockpit. I am hoping to be able to use the same basic cockpit structure with hopefully minor adjustments to fi
  7. Well I did not get anything done on my F-8E Crusader project while I've been off for the past two weeks but I did jump into mastering an F-4B (early) Cockpit in conjunction with Derek B's F-4B Conversion. First are shots taken with Harold's MB H-5 Ejection seat then without. I have adjusted colors and contrast to try and show details. I also had trouble getting the camera to focus on the left hand console. I will get better photos when I pull it apart. All pieces are temp installed and require final fitting and tweaking. Parts are designed to convert a Tamiya kit cockpit in thi
  8. In my bid to build a “more†accurate F-4 Phantom II cockpit than is currently available several interesting facts have come to light. The latest being that the Tamiya cockpit floor depth is too shallow by about 4 scale inches while the side consoles are correct; both with respect to the canopy sill. Out of that comes the issue that nearly all ejection seats available are sized to sit at the proper height when installed in the Tamiya cockpit and will sit too low in a cockpit with the correct floor depth. So I dug out all of the Phantom ejection seats I have in my stash and here is what I
  9. I have not been happy with any after market Phantom Cockpit. I am not saying anyone's is bad just all have the same problem aft cockpit is too short. The main differences you will see are in the shelves on either side of the aft cockpit. All the current after market kits chop them off thus causing or allowing the rear bulkhead to be slanted to match the seat angle. For the most part the rear bulkhead is actually nearly vertical. I have been kit bashing/scratch building one on and off for "years". I am attempting to make it adaptive to both Tamiya and Revell kits. What you see here is fitted t
  10. I'm all fired up for this one. Here is the history behind the build: In January 1965, VMF(AW)-122 returned after cross-training with the US Air Forces 40th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Yakota AB, Japan. Reformed at MCAS El Toro, Calif. for the transition to the F-4B "Phantom". In the interim phase, the squadron flew F-8Bs. On July 1, 1965, VMF(AW)-122 was redisignated a Marine Fighter Attack (VMFA) squadron. The "Crusaders" served as a replacement training squadron until the first TRANSPAC to the Republic of Vietnam in August 1967. During operations from Da Nang Air Base, the "Crusaders"
