  1. Apologies to you who have seen these before but since the 'Photobucket event' I have only just got around to loading these on to a new server. In no particular order... XT596 FG.1 No.2 as delivered to A&AEE 1968. XT597 FG.1 A&AEE circa 1982. XT861 FG.1 767 NAS 1970. XV484 FGR.2 31 Squadron 1976. XV492 FGR.2 92 Squadron 1985. XV498 FGR.2 92 Squadron 1983. XV470 FGR.2 19 Squadron 1989. XV492 (again) FGR.2 56 Squadron 1991. All built from the Hasegawa (or Revell) kit in 1/48 using an assortment of aftermarket bits and bobs. Enjoy!
  2. Hi, There is a lot of knowledge about the Spey Phantom on this site, some of it from people who actually worked on them in service. I thought I would start this thread to pick people's brains and allow others to learn a bit too. To kick off I'm keen to learn more about dummy Sparrows... I have read that the Spey Phantoms carried dummy Sparrows in the forward bays: "...as fuel was used, in fact the F-4K/M became dangerously close to having a C of G problem in certain conditions" The thing is I cannot seem to find any pictures of early FG.1 with them, and frequently these aircraft in RN service have empty bays. Was it only really an issue later, or with the RAF preferring wing tanks. Was this partly off set by the FAA preference for the centre tank. Was this why the RN preferred the centre tank. (Did they even or is that another dubious fact?) I am having to collate info from various sources to jump to these scanty assumptions and if someone hands on would like to correct me I would be delighted. Not just from a modelling point of view (no Spey Phantom will ever have a C of G problem now sadly) but more to improve my knowledge of what is rapidly becoming my favourite aircraft. Thanks.
  3. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234992412-hasegawa-phantom-fgr2-92-squadron-148/ After building the above kit in a week I enjoyed it so much I could not help but dig the other one out of the stash! We have all agonised over which scheme to build, simple answer is build both! Eduard zoom cockpit, tamiya tape seat belts, Aires wheels, AirDoc decals, Humbrol Aerosols and Tamiya acrylics. Enjoy. :-)
  4. First model of the year, last model of 2015, who knows... Cheers, S.
  5. Hi folks, I was happily putting an AMK Kfir C2 together when a Tornado subrepticiously crept up on my table. I couldn't resist its brutish charm, and a weekend later, there it was: Some grey paint(s) later: The laser rangefinder is from Italeri kit. And now, it's masking time. Borrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring... Really boring... And now for some Gunze dark green (H330): Masks away! The flaps are on: Next, the slats and I'll start the loooong decalling process, thanks to the Xtradecals stencils sheet. If anybody could point me to a RAF 1500l external fuel tank, I'd be delighted... Cheers, S.
