  1. This is going to the British Phantom Aviation Group. 'Oscar' is the last surviving F4 J in the UK. As always the Tamiya kit was sublime, with excellent PE from Eduard.
  2. This is the1/48 Academy F4N Phantom which I recently completed. This represents the F4N version as flown by VMFA-531 “Gray Ghosts” of the USMC from the USS Coral Sea around April 1980. At the time the Coral Sea was on station in the Indian Ocean and Gulf in response to the Iranian hostage situation. The F4N was a refurbished and modernised F4B which extended the life of the older airframes and enabled sufficient Phantoms to remain in service pending the introduction of F14’s and F18’s. It has been built OOB. It's painted with Tamiya acrylics. The main colour was a custom mix to replicate Light Gull Grey. The tail was X-3 Royal Blue and the rest were various blacks, metallics X-2 And XF-2 whites. Weathering was fairly minimal with Flory dark dirt and grime washes plus Abteilung oils. The build was good and any issues were entirely my own making. The instructions call for the undercarriage to be put in early in the build as well as the ejection seats and crew figures. I left the wheels to last. It was a bit tricky to get them in but it meant they didn't get knocked off along the way. I had to scratch build a few small pieces after the originals pinged off into the dark recesses of the cave.
  3. Here is my completed 1/72 F-4J Phantom. It is the Revell kit which re-srcribed and riveted. It was a fun kit to build, the details of which can be seen at the link below.
  4. Sorry if this is a stupid question but it popped into my head randomly today and I’m wondering if any Phantom experts could put this one to bed for me. i grew up in the English Lake District and please believe me when I say that every day was a free air show. For someone with an interest in planes I doubt there could have been a better place to be at the time. Throughout the 1980s I frequently saw RAF Phantoms overhead, and apart from Tornados, Jags, Harriers and F111s they were one of the most common types to be seen. Thinking about it, I can’t understand why; by that point in history surely they were interceptors? What possible advantage could there be in training interceptor pilots to fly at low level in mountainous terrain? In case anyone thinks I’m mixing them up with someone else’s F4s, trust me I’m not. I saw a few of the other sort as well from NATO members but these were definitely RAF. By contrast I can only say for definite that I saw a Lightning come over one time at low level and that was actually after they left service. When I was sitting one of my GCSEs in 1989 one came barrelling over making a ton of noise; I think British Aerospace at Wharton were still operating a couple at that time as chase planes or something. Any thoughts appreciated - I know nothing about the role specific training that RAF Phantom crews undertook so I realise there may be a good reason for what I saw but it seems counter intuitive when I think about.
  5. I just finish 1/48 Hasegawa F-4J Phantom II . Very nice kit , alot of details and decal. Overall a very nice kit. Some issue im running into is that there are still some gap between the fuselage and decal is a little bit fragile. But its just minor issue. It a very nice kit. I have the full build video link in my signature , feel free to check it out , thank you so much
