Good morning all Does anyone know where I can get hold of one of these sets of markings for phamous phighter squadrons in 1/48 please? It doesn't have to be these specific aircraft in terms of serials, just the unit markings. I tried Hannants and RAM and eBay but to no avail.
Already have one build on this GB, this will be my second to be started very soon. I have had this Hasegawa 1/48 Phantom FGR.2 kit #P16 in the stash for a few years now, I purchased it in good faith as a bulk buy of eleven kits a while back however unbeknown to me many parts were missing so I used the cockpit section in an old ESCI kit (which worked out very well) and I was going to break this up for parts. However, recently one of these sold on eBay for over £60 so I reconsidered my options. I have never built an RAF Phantom FGR.2 in this scale and I would rather like to build a RAF Germany 92 Squadron machine in the old grey/green camouflage scheme which was extent until at least 1985. Here is the kit: The parts that are missing are the complete cockpit and seats, stabilators, 1 x main undercarriage leg, all undercarriage doors, and air brakes. However I do have many parts from a broken up Revell F-4C/D, an ancient Italeri F-4G as well as the duplicate parts supplied in the new Academy F-4B and F-4C kits so I am confident I can use these to build something reasonable. After some hesitation I decided to replace the complete missing cockpit with the True Details F-4J Phantom II cockpit detail set. No, it isn't an FGR.2 however at £9.99 from the Big H it is close enough for me. I have never made a replacement cockpit before so could be fun to try. Additionally I did purchase the MIG UK Aircraft Colours Set 'From 50's to Present' a while back and I would like to give these a try. And also some excellent reference material... Michael
