  1. My first Academy 1/48th F-4B Phantom, I started this kit three years ago however she went on the shelf of suspended doom when I started to get frustrated with airbrushing with acrylic paints. I re-started her a few weeks ago, to be quite honest it was a 'just get it finished' job and it remained that way until I started to apply the decals. Somehow the ugly duckling turned into a swan, or at least something approaching that. This is the end result: 20201018_124319 (2) by Ghostbase, on Flickr This was my first build of the Academy Phantom. I am used to the ESCI/Italeri a
  2. Lt Victor Kovaleski was a pilot with VF-161, flying F-4Bs from USS Midway at the tail end of the Vietnam War. In January 1973, 6 months before I was born, he had a bit of a mixed week, achieving two "lasts". On 12 January 1973 Lt Kovaleski, with Lt(jg) Jim Wise in the back seat, was flying F-4B 153045 on a combat air patrol. Kovaleski and Wise were vectored to intercept a VPAF MiG-17 flown by Liu Kim Ngo. After a brief dogfight, Kovaleski got into a firing position and blew the MiG-17's tail off with a Sidewinder. Luu Kim Ngo got out, but his parachute failed to open. This was the
  3. Announced (sort of) on their FB page. https://www.facebook.com/Hong-Kong-Models-Co-Ltd-1375731456009809/timeline/ Cheers, Andrew
  4. Hi, Just finished this F-4B in VF-51 Screaming Eagles CAG Colors. This jet Killed one MIG and displayed the 4 MIG kills the squadron scored on its last Vietnam cruise. The kit is the new Zoukei-Mura F-4J kit with the following additions: Accessories used: Eduard Brassin F-4B wheels Master Metal Pitot tubes and AOA Sensor Eduard Brassin Seats w/ PE Furball Decals - They Fit Perfect! Scratch Built items are: Chin Pod Fin Cap Thin wing including the wheel well and speed brakes Non-Slatted Plain Elevator F-4B WSO lef
  5. As 1/72 Hasegawa F-4N kits are easier to get today than their F-4Bs I'd like to know, whether slatted tailplanes and ECM fairings above the engine intakes are the only external differences to be retro-modified when aiming to model the F-4B. Cheers Michael
  6. Hi guys! This is my another project in 1/48 - Eduard (Academy) Good Morning Da Nang. I have started it some months ago and now decided to continue my build here. I'll be very glad to hear any comments of my work. P.S. I beg you pardon but my english is not very good now because I've got out of practice for a long time!
  7. Hey everyone and here's the latest from me, finished for the Phantom GB here on Britmodeller. Yes, it's Airfix's ancient (1971 issue) F-4B Phantom that I think I bought out of sheer nostalgia and also after reading the excellent Osprey book pictured below (which has the kit's wingman on the cover). The full WIP thread is here but to recap: Kit: Airfix 04013 F-4B Phantom 1/72 Details: Some panel lines rescribed, Eduard Zoom photoetch for the kits seats and cockpit (which was scratchbuilt) Paint: White from a rattle can, all other paints Revell Acrylic, brush-painted. Johnson' Klear, Flo
  8. Hi everyone, I'm in with this old relic, also pulled deep from the stash. I think I bought it in a fit of nostalgia and never considered building it...until now and will be my first Phantom! Markings will be from Afterburner decals for one of the first Mig kills from Vietnam. Will give it a little bit of a attention and just have some fun with it. Really looking forward to this GB! All the best, Dermot
  9. My marker for this GB, the Academy 1/48th F-4B Phantom II, with a choice from the kit decals VF-111 'Sundowners', or the Furball 'Air Wing All Stars - Phantoms Part Two', or Warbird Decals USAF F-110A or VMFA-321. Some modellers are getting excellent results with this kit, this is my first attempt. I am more used to the old Esci and Monogram products so this will stretch me a bit Michael
  10. McDonnell Douglas F-4B Phantom Seamless Intakes AlleyCat 1:48 The Academy F-4B Phantom has already been praised for it’s detail and accuracy, but there are always areas that need upgrading in any kit. This new set from AlleyCat provides the modeller two seamless intakes along with separate splitter plates. The parts are made of white resin and are very nicely moulded, with fine panel lines, sharp edges and smooth intakes. There is a small amount of cutting to remove an area of the kits lower wing, but this is well described in the instructions, including a diagram of the offending a
  11. McDonnell Douglas F-4B Phantom Detail Sets 1:48 Eduard and Brassin Continuing Eduards releases for the Academy F-4B Phantom are these two sets. The first is a new style set of fabric seatbelts and the second, in their Brassin range is a set of replacement wheels. Seatbelt set, - (49064). The set comes in the standard flat pack style with card backing and contains a small sheet of fabric belts, which are made in conjunction with HGW, with enough parts for both seats, including the shoulder straps, lap straps and seat cover. There is also a small sheet of pre-painted etched ni
  12. McDonnell Douglas F-4B Phantom 1:48 Eduard Etch Sets for Academy To compliment the already released etched flap set, Eduard have now produced two new sets for the Academy F-4B Phantom. Each set comes packaged in the usual poly sleeve with protective card inserts. Interior Set (49644). This set comes on two sheets, one partially pre-painted and wholly self adhesive, the other standard relief etched brass. There is also a small sheet of acetate for the HUD glass. The detail on the kits cockpit parts needs to be removed first otherwise the etched parts will not stick well. The unpa
  13. F-4B Phantom Airbrake set 1/48 Eduard Etch Set for Academy The Academy F-4B Phantom seems to have been very well received by modellers, but there is always something that aftermarket companies find to add to the finished model. Eduard have done this with the release of a very nice etched airbrake set. Naturally comprising parts for both airbrakes they have come up with an arrangement which not only gives an improved scale thickness of the outer skin, but also provides the internal airbrake structure by producing the airbrake in three sections, each folded onto each other in a concer
