  2. Hi There Wonder if someone could please help I recently came across picture of a 43 Sqn Phantom taken at Soesterberg airbase on a Sqn exchange but one of the aircraft in the background looked to have overal dark sea grey fuel tank like on the RN FG-1 Phantoms would anyone please know whether these where ever carried the picture was taken in the early 70,s and I believe the RN training squadron was based at Leuchars alongside 43 Sqn and 111sqn at the time. Many Thanks Craig

      Ok - are you after the full set of markings then. I assume red/blue roundels on the upper wing and fuselage and red/white/blue on the lower wings. checkers on either side of the fuselage roundel? checkers on the rwr on the fin? serial numbers in black - fuselage and underwing? individual letter code on the fin? number or letter on the front u/c door?


      All the best - I'll have a serious look tomorrow.

      I have looked through the spares box and don't have spare 43 sqd markings in that scheme. However, it is one of the options in the first boxing of the new(ish) Airfix Phantom - the one with the RN a/c on the box so that might be an option for you.


      I do have some for 92 (the Fujimi markings) if you're prepared to pretend an FG.1 is an FGR.2!
