Tamiya 1/32 F-4J Phantom II Showtime 100

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


This post has been a long time coming. I started this building back in 2016 and have been working on it sporadically ever since. I started with the Tamiya F-4J kit and got a little carried away with the aftermarket. There are flaws in the build that I am not happy with but visually I think it turned out pretty well. Here is a list of included aftermarket.


Aires resin cockpit

Eduard exhaust nozzles, TERs, and AIM-7 Sparrows

Zactoman AIM-9 sidewinders

Rhino seamless intakes. 

Video Aviation Rockeye cluster bombs 


Hope you enjoy the pics.

Sure looks great to me. Nice job on the overall grey, very smooth. Unique loadout too, haven’t seen that one before!

Thank you very much. For the load out I went as historically accurate as I could. I did my best to replicate the load out from Cunningham and Driscoll's May 10th 1972 mission where they shot down 3 Migs. After several sources I was able to devise that they were carrying 4 Sidewinders on the inboard pylons with four Rockeye cluster bombs on TERs below them. There was some discrepancy on whether they carried 2 or 4 Sparrows but the best sources I could find said 2 in the rear pockets. I have seen it written that they had empty outboard bomb pylons on but the only ones I could find were attached to drop tanks and the only drop tank they carried was the center line. The outboard pylons look detachable in reference photos so I took some artistic license and left them off all together. 


Thanks for all the great comments guys!

Out of curiosity, any resin aftermarket pylons available? A number of Phantoms photographed with the outboard pylons fitted, but nothing attached.

I could not find any when I looked.
