    ZM SWS 1/48 Phantom

    I got one set of the Hypersonic corrrection set and have had a play with it. As well as correcting the barely noticeable error, it goes together really well. I have taken some pics and I'll try and get them up shortly if the interest is there.

    F-4J UK questions

    If you are doing the F-4J pre delivery, they did not have the periscopes fitted.

    1/144 F-4 Phantom?

    There is one manufaturer doing 1/144th resin kits, can't remember who immediately. These look nice with etched detail parts. I can provide more details this weekend if needed.

    The Radar will be deleted on the FGR.2 version when it is released.

    3-tone green F-4Ds

    My understanding was that it was FS34201 mis labelled. The UK and PACAF aircrafrt were either totally repainted, or in some cases touched up. I have seen a picture somewhere of a 48th TFW F-4D with the area behind the LN tailcode still in FS30219. There was an example of a US based test aircraft with this green but that was an experimental camouflage scheme. This debate has been going on for years and I suspect no resolution is forthcoming unfortunately.
  9. Every time I walk past 15 dock (and 14 dock, I now imagine Dreadnoughts in there. Though it is very different from then, the extension is still very much a part of the dock. Also, I showed your pics to some modern Navy guys and they were impressed too. Thank you for teaching me a bit more about the environment I work in.

    USAF Two letter Tail codes

    There is a Schiffer tail code book out there which has a good listing, and being an older book it will have the earlier tail codes.

    RAF Phantom snow camo?

    I have never seen a pic of a snow toom, nice idea. The ground attack RAFG sqdn's would be prime candidates for this. Hmm, I picked up a part built 1/48th Phantom at Perth that would be perfect for this. I think the grey ones would not have been white washed as the grey is fairly light in colour and would blend in OK.

    Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    I ordered 4 despite the high postage (knowing Ali's work), and I got an email giving some of the postage back. That was a bonus.

    The 'ball thing' is the Sampson multi function radar (MFR), and the aerial things are lightning conductors.

    Can I build an F4J(uk) from the 1/72 Academy kit?

    Also, the slime lights from the F-4S were fitted, but is an easy fix.

    Oman Air Force Jaguar

    The shape of the HAS doors were different to what we see in Europe, they had a cut out for the fin, with the rest being lower down, sort of an inverted T.
