It just so happens I started in on a Phantom over the weekend, so I decided to join in here. OY 463 is an F-4D that was piloted by Steve Ritchie (the first U.S. Air Force ace of the Vietnam war) during his 1st and 5th kills. This particular airplane also shot down four other Migs during it's tour making it the most prolific Mig killer of the conflict. This is kinda my holy grail build. I've wanted to build this airframe in all out mode since I was a kid. I have a decal sheet from Microscale that I've been hoarding for several years waiting for both a new tooled F-4C/D kit and my skills to progress. I feel like I'm there, so here we go. The kit: The aftermarket: Aires cockpit, Eduard Brassin exhaust, wheels and weapons sets, Eduard fabric belts and masks, DEF Models FOD covers, and Steel Beach slime lights.
