  1. Good evening all, while building a project I like to have a second simpler project of let's say 'lesser importance' running in parallel. Like a B-side to the main project. So while I was building the Arado 196 for the Heller group build I confess I was having an affair with Hasegawa Now that the A-side project is over and done, what was hiding in the shadows comes under the spotlight: The idea is as I understand this, to build a kit without having to worry about accuracy, details, sources, aftermarket products, expensive material etc. I failed.
  2. Hi everyone, now available in my web shop and from a few retailers is my latest set, a slatted wing conversion for the Zoukei Mura F-4E (early) hard wing kit. Yes, I know that ZM will eventually release their own, but this is for those who really want to build their slatted F-4E now and maybe also offers a little bit more than the out-of-the-box option will do later... In the package are: slatted outer wings (the main wing parts are cast in extra strong resin to prevent warping), drop-in slat inserts for the inner wings, ARN-101 system antenna, TISEO, upgraded WSO cockpit conso
  3. F-4Es of the 480th Tac Fighter Squadron, 52nd Tac Fighter Wing out of Spangdahlem AB at Nellis AFB for Red Flag exercise, June 1983. 71-1247 74-1044 74-1048 74-1049 74-1050 74-1057 Thanks for looking, Sven
  4. Kit manufacture: Hasegawa Scale: 1/72 Type: F-4E Phantom II Extras used: Brassin missiles, bombs and bomb racks Paints and colours used: Hataka European One paint set Finished this old kit today. Raised panel lines were sanded down. Minimal weathering added, as this was a trip back to child hood. Built this about 30 years ago. Great fun Best regards Rune Norway
  5. F-4Es of the 339th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 347th Tactical Fighter Wing, based at Moody AFB participating in the Green Flag 81-3 large force exercise at Nellis AFB, April 1981. 67-0375 67-0398 68-0326 - Funny, she's carrying a baggage pod, while the rest of the line has Mk82 bombs. 68-0387 68-0390 - Wing King's aircraft. Thanks for looking, Sven
  6. I have deep-sixed the obnoxious airfix fresco and I'm bringing this project out of cold storage. I feel the few steps I've completed put me well within the 25% threshold, but if GB mods disagree, I'll pull the project. This is the ProModeller boxing of Hasegawa's F-4e. This is the early F-4e with un-slatted wings and two varieties of nose guns. The very nice decal sheet has several options for phantoms from Homestead Airforce Base that spent the summer of 72 in Thailand, helping out with Operation Linebacker II. I'll be building one of the two Mig killers
  7. The 52nd Tac Fighter Wing team out of Spangdahlem AB at the Gunsmoke Aerial Gunnery Competition, Nellis AFB, October 1983 71-1079 72-1067 74-1052 74-1638 74-1639 Gotta love the lo-viz shark mouth... Very odd. This is F-4E 74-1639, yet the "Identi-Plate" looks like it is a generic stencil. It starts with the very first production F-4E, 66-0284, and goes up to 69-0236. Yet this is a 1974 production contract year airframe. Even if it is generic, its use makes no sen
  8. Visited George AFB in March and May 1990. Here are some images of the 562nd Tactical Fighter Squadron F-4E/Gs, of the 35th Tac Fighter Wing. The F-4Es are the "Killer" half of Hunter/Killer tactics, the F-4E serving as a weapons truck and taking targeting information from the F-4G. The F-4G did the "Killer" mission as well, but detecting threats with its on-board sensors, the "Hunter", was its primary mission. Pairing the G with an E conserved F-4Gs which were relatively small fleet in the USAF. Catching the Weasels at their home base was always a hit-or-miss thing. As the only Wea
  9. F-4Es of the 334th Tac Fighter Squadron "Eagles", 4th Tac Fighter Wing out of Seymour-Johnson AFB at Nellis AFB for the Gunsmoke air-to-ground weapons competition, October 1983. While most of the 4TFW jets back at 'Shady J' were still in wrap-around SEA camouflage at this time, the Gunsmoke candidate airframes were put at the head of the line to get Euro One. Hence, little or no weathering on these jets. Gotta like the green SUU-20 practice bomb dispensers on the inboard wing stations (Stations 2 and 8), they were/are normally overall white. 71-0243 73-1166
  10. Visited George AFB in March and May 1990. Here are some images of the 21st Tactical Fighter Training Squadron, the "Cheetahs", of the 35th Tac Fighter Wing. 66-0356 - looks like she's being kept for Battle Damage Repair (BDR) training. Strange that a seat is still in the front cockpit. 71-0247 72-0159 72-1482 - Squadron commander's bird. 72-1485 74-1038 74-1052 74-1055 - It's a recent acquisition to the squadron waiting for complete mark
  11. Rhinos of the 457th Tac Fighter Squadron, 301st Tac Fighter Wing, Air Force Reserve at Carswell AFB, March 1990. Just a quick visit to the USAF side of the base between meetings at General Dynamics and catching a flight back to Edwards. Not the best lighting, mostly nose on, couldn't quite get the exposure right. 68-0340 68-0342 68-0390 68-0391 68-0392 68-0447 68-0449 66-0450 68-0452 68-0497 68-0511 68-0532
  12. F-4E s/n 66-0291 is an ex-Thunderbird aircraft. She served as a test support aircraft at Edwards AFB from 1978 through 1991. Operated by the 6512th Test Squadron, throughout the early 1980s is was part of the Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) chase flight, hence the white upper wings with the camouflage schemes. The N prefix indicating a permanent flight test modification was installed in/on the airframe. Doing her thing (1980?)... October 1982 January 1985 May 1985 October 1989 - received
  13. Visited George AFB in March and May 1990. The 20th Tactical Fighter Training Squadron, the "Silver Lobos", of the 35th Tac Fighter Wing was the F-4 training squadron for the West German Luftwaffe. The 75 series F-4Es shown here were built for the Luftwaffe as replacement training jets for F-4Fs that were sent back to Germany 66-0292 66-0328 66-0334 66-0359 67-0319 67-0331 68-0400 69-7585 75-0628 75-0629 75-0630 7
  14. F-4Es of the 68th Tac Fighter Squadron, 347th Tac Fighter Wing out of Moody AFB participating in the Red Flag 84-2 large-force exercise, Nellis AFB, February 1984. 68-0328 68-0363 68-0367 68-0373 A very blurry 68-0395 68-0495 68-0515 Thanks for looking, Sven
  15. September 1991: The 163rd Tac Fighter Squadron, 122nd Tac Fighter Wing, Indiana Air National Guard at Baer Field is converting from F-4Es to F-16Cs. These images are of the F-4Es being prepared for transfer to other USAF units or to other air forces. 68-0305, was supposed to go to Turkey, but may not have been delivered. 68-0361, went to Greece. 68-0363, went to Greece. 68-0372, went to the 35th Fighter Wing at George AFB. 68-0377, went to South Korean AF. 68-0381, went to Greece. 68-0393,
  16. Rhinos of the 39th Tac Fighter Squadron, 35th Tac Fighter Wing out of George AFB. Participating in the large force exercise Red Flag 83-4 at Nellis AFB, June 1983. 67-0376 67-0381 67-0396, squadron flagship 68-0338 with MiG kill 68-0345 68-0371 68-0409 68-0410 with Pave Spike 68-0473 68-0474 69-7251 Thanks for looking, Sven
  17. F-4Es of the 335th Tac Fighter Squadron ("The Chiefs"), 4th Tac Fighter Wing out of Seymour-Johnson AFB during Red Flag 84-4 exercise at Nellis AFB, June 1984. 72-0128 72-1478 with ALQ-131 ECM pod. 73-1183 73-1189 73-1196 with AGM-65 training rounds 74-1625 74-1640 74-1643 with Long-Chord Wing (LCW) GBU-15 built on a Mk-84 inert warhead. 74-1645 with replacement TISEO fairing. Thanks for looking, Sven
  18. I have three weeks off from work, so what better way to spend those weeks than building a pair of F-4's. I will be building a very early F-4E, with the original gun fairing, non slatted wings, and not even formation lights, and a mid 80's F-4G in Euro 1 camo. Both are the 1/72 Hasegawa kit, which is, as you can see on the pic below, very modular. As of now, I could fit the wings of the E (white plastic) on the fuselage of the G, and it wouldn't matter. The E will be done as one based at Torrejon in Spain circa 1971, back when they didn't have a single tail code for the Wing yet, bu
  19. Wing commander's jet, F-4E 69-0305, of the 414th Fighter Weapons Squadron (the F-4 Fighter Weapons School), 57th Fighter Weapons Wing, Tac Fighter Weapons Center, Nellis AFB. Seen visiting Edwards AFB, August 1984. Unusual presentation of the 57th tail code, "WA" Thanks fo looking, Sven
  20. Found these slides in the drawer of a vacant desk while doing a clear out at the 6512th Test Squadron at Edwards AFB in 1984. Obvious from the slide frames that these were processed at the base photo lab, but no other info with them. The jet is F-4E 67-0392 of the 33rd Tac Fighter Wing. The "ED" tail code on a 33TFW jet would indicate this is late '60s or early '70s. (The 6510th Test Wing adopted the "ED" tail code in 1982). It looks like it is an Integrated combat turn that is being evaluated, though there are two different store loadings shown here. It looks like Eglin AFB, consistent with t
  21. F-4Es of the 70th Tac Fighter Squadron, 347th Tac Fighter Wing out of Moody AFB. At Green Flag 81-3, Nellis AFB, March 1981. Some have bullet fairings on the vertical tails, some don't. 66-0309 68-0358 - Squadron CO's bird. AVQ-23 Pave Spike laser designator pod on the forward left missile station. 68-0385 - AVQ-23 Pave Spike laser designator pod on the forward left missile station. 68-0423 - AVQ-23 Pave Spike laser designator pod on the forward left missile station. 68-0498 68-0511 - ALQ-119 on the forward left
  22. F-4Es of the 334th Tac Fighter Squadron, 4th Tac Fighter Wing out of Seymour-Johnson AFB. At Nellis AFB for Red Flag Exercise 81-1, October 1980. 72-1493 73-1171 73-1174 73-1180, squadron commander's jet 73-1183 73-1187 74-1039 on the Nellis transient ramp before the exercise. Crew participating in planning sessions. 74-1621 74-1627 74-1645 Thanks for looking, Sven
  23. The 4th Tac Fighter Wing team out of Seymour-Johnson AFB at the Gunsmoke Aerial Gunnery Competition, Nellis AFB, October 1983 71-0243 73-1166 73-1166 73-1196 74-1625 Thanks for looking, Sven
  24. F-4E s/n 66-0289 is an ex-Thunderbird and served as a test support aircraft at Edwards AFB, 1978 through 1991. Operated by the 6512th Test Squadron, throughout the early 1980s is was part of the Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) chase flight, hence the white upper wings with the camouflage schemes. Safety chase proficiency mission, August 1984. That's a deer silhouette in grey on the left intake vari-ramp. In January 1984 we took '289 to Eglin AFB. On landing we took a deer down the left side damaging the external tank and the main gear door. We left the jet for repairs and
  25. The 3rd Tac Fighter Wing team out of George AFB at the Gunsmoke Aerial Gunnery Competition, Nellis AFB, October 1983. All the other F-4E teams (4, 35, and 52 TFWs) at Gunsmoke 1983 were in Euro 1 camouflage. The specification for Euro 1 on the F-4E only came out in Early 1983 and the stateside units received the required paint stocks first. The 52nd out of Spangdahlem received the paint stocks before Gunsmoke and painted their Gunsmoke participants Euro 1 while the rest of the wing didn't get Euro 1 for at least a couple of months. The 3TFW at Clark probably had not received the Eu
