  2. Hello my Dear Fellow Modellers A former RAF Phantom Navigator David Gledhill wrote in his excellent book: " You could love the Phantom or hate the Phantom but you could never ignore the Phantom". I certainly love the Phantom! Especially the British Phantom. I started this project last September and I was seriously planning a conversion to FG.1 or FGR.2. I spent hours searching for measurements, photographs and so on. I calculated and made sketches until I realized that rear fuselage will need a complete rebuild from thin styrene strips. The surface detailing would be problematic and
  3. F-4J, Bureau Number 155792, at Nellis AFB, October 1980. Thanks for looking, Sven
  4. Morning Folk's,back in 1972 when I was just settling into my second year at comprehensive school every night the news was full of doom and gloom about the state of the country,the Middle East and some far of war in Vietnam,think Vietnam air war and the Phantom will always come to mind. Academy's kit is of the famous Showtime 100 the mount of Randy "Duke" Cunningham and his RIO Willie Driscoll on a return from a strike on Haiphong they got into a bit of a scrap.https://theaviationgeekclub.com/showtime-100-vs-colonel-toon-the-most-epic-1-v-1-dogfight-in-the-history-of-naval-aviati

  7. Hi friends , my last completed model. It is a Monogram's model in the Accurate Miniatures box. I am pleased that the model is made, so here's the picture. Enjoy.

  9. Dear Brit modellers, This is my 3rd model this year, the awesome F-4J Phantom II by Zoukei Mura. The kit is really awesome, Full of details and all parts fits together without gaps. Aditionally I've purchased several aftermarkets: Pilot & operator crew with ejection seats by Aerobonus Resin Exhaust noozles by Eduard Wheels by Eduard With this model I've tried for the first time to use oil washes to cover the pane lines.
  10. Hello gentlement, I have a weapon question for you, regarding F-4J (UK) weapon configuration. I'm currently building a 1/32 F-4J Toom and will go with centerline SUU-23 gun pod (painted dark/olive green). I have a reference pic, showing such a green painted pod under a J, it seems there is as well two inert skyflash or Sparrow, one dark blue and another some kind of light grey, the pic caption states that these are ballast missiles ... That's OK, I will remove the kit Sparrow fins and that'l doo the trick. My question is, will there be can an inert AIM-9 be
  11. F-4J Phantom - Rockin Rhino 1:48 Eduard Limted Edition If you have not heard of the Phabulos F-4 Phantom then where have you been! The F-4J was an improved version of the F-4B Used by the US Navy and Marine Corps. Improvements were centred on improving the Phantoms air-to-air combat capability. J79-GE-10 engines were fitted which could provide 17844lbf of thrust. A new AN/APG-59 pulse Doppler radar was fitted which was combined with the AN/AWG-10 fire control system to provide look-down, shoot-down capability. Additional avionics in the form of an AN/AJB-7 bombing system were also added
  12. F-4J interior 1975 modification - for Academy Kit 1:48 Eduard The Academy F-4's are now becoming the new standard for this legendary aircraft. This set from Eduard provides one colour fret on nickel plated metal and one brass fret. The coloured fret provides mainly cockpit details with new instrument panels side consoles, and cockpit interior parts. The brass fret provides details for the canopy rails and sills, plus the canopy frames. A new HUD is provided along with framing for the parts between the cockpits. Conclusion These frets should enhance an already great kit. Highly Rec
  13. F-4J Phantom Update Sets 1:48Eduard - For Academy kit The Academy F-4 series are great kits in their own right, even in today's world of ever expanding mould quality there are areas in which resin still provides extra detail. Exhausts These three part resin and two part PE exhausts really do pop with the detail. Wheels The resin wheels do pop with detail you just dont see o the kit parts. Overall these new parts from Eduard do provide an advancement over the kit parts. Highly recommended. Review samples courtesy of
  14. F-4J Exhaust Nozzles (For Academy kit) 1:72 Eduard Brassin The new tool Academy F-4J is a great kit. Like any plastic kit, injection moulding can only do so much and resin replacements can enhance some parts. These new exhausts from Eduard are a direct drop in replacement for the kit parts. The two PE parts must first be added at the engine end, then the engine end cap put on. Once this is done they go straight onto the kit. Review sample courtesy of
  15. Hello all, First WIP on britmodeller and I begin with some phantom builds, maybe 4-5 by the end (If I stick with them all long enough ). Some will be in flight, some parked with possibly flaps down. I know they will not be up to some of the standards set here (unbelievable dedication to detail on this forums) but I hope to learn a lot in the thread and you guys enjoy as much as I do some of my builds. So first up, some of the decals. The airdoc sheets are excellent, especially the grouped stencils for the luftwaffe jets, some are unbelievably tiny! The model decal sheet is old but hopefully
  16. F-4J VF-96 Showtime 100 1:72 Academy Does the F-4 Phantom really need an introduction? Probably one of the most recognisable aircraft ever which severed with many NATO and Allied Nations Air Forces. The aircraft was originally developed by McDonnell Aircraft as a long range, supersonic interceptor/fighter bomber for the US Navy. Its use would then expand to the US Marine Corps, the US Air Force and many other nations. The F-4J model was an improvement of the original F-4B for the US Navy and Marine Corps, the emphasis to was improve air-to-air capability. new engines would give additi
  17. We are delighted to bring you the the latest new models from Academy, including the new 1/72nd scale Phantom! They're all available this week from good model shops! http://www.pocketbond.co.uk
  18. The second of my three completed 1/48th F-4 Phantom IIs is this ancient ESCI F-4J, this was the Item 4067 boxing 'Bicentennial Phantom' which was released in 1982. I have made several of these kits and I wanted to try out more weathering. The original kit does not include weapons or alternative decals so I had to source these elsewhere. This was supposed to be a quick build but it still took a while! The markings are mainly from Superscale 48-857 'F-4J Phantom, VF74 USS America, 1972' with stencils and walkways taken from an old Hasegawa kit in the stash. The Superscale decals went on well
  19. Don't know if this has been covered before but I'm sure someone will point me in the right direction. I picked up a bargain QF-4S Hasegawa Bloodhounds boxing, with the engraved panel lines, and looking at options. I would prefer to do a Hi-Viz F-4J instead of a Low-Viz F-4S and wondered about the conversion. Other than the minor surgery the big one is the slatted wing (Sprue M) and wondered if anyone has converted a slatted wing to non slatted. If its straightforward I'l give it a go. Cheers
  20. US Navy Group Build? There just has to be a McDonnell-Douglas F-4 Phantom II somewhere here! Back in the later half of the 60's the F-4 Phantom *was* the US Navy and the 'Double Ugly' reigned supreme and she was probably the aircraft that became most publicly associated with the Vietnam War. Currently I have got the midsummer building blues so I want to do something which is easy and gives a good visual result. As a result I have chosen to start another ancient ESCI 1/48th scale F-4J Phantom. The kit is ESCI 4067 'Bicentennial Phantom II' which suggests that it is an F-4B but in reality is an
  21. Has anyone used these? Are they good and do they fit well, or are they undersized like others? Thanks Andrew
