  1. Finemolds is to release in August 2020 new tool 1/72nd McDD F-4EJ Phantom II kits. Source: http://www.finemolds.co.jp/202006-08NEW.html - ref. FP37 - McDD F-4EJ Phantom II JASDF - ref.

  2. This is where I re-enlist for a second tour, with the Academy 1/72 F-4J Phantom - same kit as Enzo. I had this kit earmarked for Aces, but that's not getting to the bunfight. This kit was an Amazon purchase in 2015, for £22.95. An unusual kit in that it can be built snapfit, without cement, AND with stickers as well as decals. Aimed at the toy market - lets see about the model market then. Decals for Showtime 100, the US Navy's only Ace crew - Lieutenant Randall H. Cunningham (pilot) Lieutenant William P. Driscoll (RIO) This aircraft, this F-4J callsign
  3. Hey everyone In conjunction with my Gladiator build and hot on the heals of my 1/48 Eduard Spitfire (with a bit of resin thrown in) I will make a start on this... I have wanted to build a Phantom since I came back to modelling 10 years ago. Its aggressive lines are awesome and painted as an RAF bird I think they look particularly cool. I have a little AM in the way of quick boost Martin Baker Mk.7's and some resin rear view mirrors for the canopy's. I'll make a start on her a little later on today. Cheers Iain

  5. Look at this beauty! A bit more expensive than I'd usually pay with postage, but I couldn't resist as it was still a bargain for 1/48 Hasegawa! Looks like a great kit, can't wait to start. I'll be doing her as a Euro I camo 52nd TFW jet from around 1987. Has anyone made this kit and got any advice?
  6. looking forward to this GB, hopefully I can finish this one, my track record is getting worse. This little lady is winging its way to me Perhaps the phantom will be a popular choice in this GB? I think it will be an exciting chance to try some tricky metallic work at the rear and I love the Phantom in SEA schemes. I’ll enliven it with just a touch of AM mainly this.... and a montex canopy mask Hope it fits in my display cabinet The phantom is a big beast in 1/48!
  7. This project started last winter as FGR.2 XV436 of No. 6 Squadron. Then I read Aircraft Artificer Lionel A. Smith's "Phantom at sea" from the book "Phantom from the cockpit". It was "hook-up" for the FG.1 and "bolter" for the FGR.2. Lionel Smith was sent ashore to NAS Roosevelt Roads (Puerto Rico) on June 1971 when XT861 was diverted to the island to make some repairs on the "Cab". His style impressed me at once and I started to build my first ever RN aircraft. I built the model using Aires seats, jet pipes, wheels and air scoops. A lot of scratch building was required because I made the keel
  8. Hallo, this is my latest Jet built during Lockdown times. The old kit is still worth to build! Added some parts like Aires nozzle and PE parts in the cockpit. Also added complete rivets wich is hard to see. Decals were from Airdoc and colours came from AK Real colours wich appears quite dark, so that I light them up a little bit. Please enjoy the pic’s! Cheers Andy
  9. Currently in progress after being rescued from the shelf of doom is a Tamiya F-4J. I bought the kit in around 2001 and it has been around a bit, started in Germany, then to Africa, then Borneo, back to Germany and now down under. The Black Box (now Avionix) pit was originally painted with enamels, but I was not happy with the finish, so it has been stripped back down and restarted using Gunze and oils. Currently I am finishing off some detailing work on it before it receives a gloss coat, a detail wash and then matt coat to complete. The intention is to finish it as either an F-4J or F-4
  10. Kit manufacture: Hasegawa Scale: 1/72 Type: F-4E Phantom II Extras used: Brassin missiles, bombs and bomb racks Paints and colours used: Hataka European One paint set Finished this old kit today. Raised panel lines were sanded down. Minimal weathering added, as this was a trip back to child hood. Built this about 30 years ago. Great fun Best regards Rune Norway
  11. Phantom FG.1 Cockpit Set (for Airfix Kit) 1:72 CMK by Special Hobby The new tool from Airfix is very welcome, Here from CMK we get a complete new cockpit for the FG.1. There is the main cockpit tub, front and back sets, instruments consoles, and side consoles; as well as the cockpit interior sides. PE setbelts and firing handles are supplied for the ejection seats. Also supplied are the front coaming and a film for the instrument panel/. The instructions dont mention much surgery is needed for the kit but im sure some will be needed. Lastly there is new part for
  12. My take on the Airfix 1/72 McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom (493) Since contracting Covid-19 earlier this year, I am finding modelling can be bit of a trial sometimes. I'm fine for a while but then I find it almost impossible to do anything. To help combat this, I decided that my contribution to a current ATF GB was going to be the 1971 boxing of the Airfix Phantom. It was supposed to be completely OOB, with no aftermarket stuff, no weathering, no scribing and a hairy stick finish. However, I had to use aftermarket decals as the 49-year old kit decals were pants and decided the IAF sc
  13. Do any of the boxes of the FGR.2 or F-4M match the quality of the FGR.1 with the art flying by the oil rig?
  14. I've just started a build of a F-4 Phantom II to be done in the all blue scheme as worn by XT899 of 19 Squadron in 1991 (?) My questions are about what it carried underneath Firstly, I'm a numpty when it comes to various missiles etc carried by jets. I can recognise an AIM-9 Sidewinder type but an AIM 7 from an AIM-120 AMRAAM, uh, no On to the 19 squadron Phantom. Most photos show it with an auxiliary fuel tank (aka a 'drop' tank) under each wing. I presume these would be mounted on the outer wing hard points, as 1. some photos show it with a pylon (blue
  15. McDonnell Douglas Phantom FG.1 1:72 Airfix A true cold war icon, the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II was conceived as an all-weather, long-range fighter bomber for the US Navy. It flew for the first time in 1958 and, over fifty years later, it is still in service with modern air forces such as that of Greece. More than five thousand Phantoms have been built, making it one of the most successful post-war fighter aircraft. The F-4K, known in Royal Navy/RAF service as the FG.1, was developed from the F-4J, itself a development of the original F-4B used b
  16. Hi everybody; after a couple of propeller builds, here I am back to a jet, and in 1/72! A few words to introduce this project: almost one year ago, I started the build of a Hasegawa 1/72 F-4 J Phantom II, this one: It was my first serious venture in 1/72 scale, and was a lot of fun. I learnt a lot from all the people who followed that WIP, and one in particular is Gene K; former USAF F4 pilot, he has been very helpful both in terms of technical info on the AC and in terms of modelling tips. Long story short, we became friends an I offered him, as a sort of way to thank him for the great he
  17. Good evening mates, to be honest, at the moment my Jaguars’ main wheel bays are a little too demanding in terms of …inspiration and I’ve ended up postponing and postponing them. Now there are a few things happening to other members that have let me understand that probably…it’s normal to loose a bit of motivation when a project is taking too long to be brought to an end. Fritag has a perseverance I admire, but we’ve just seen he just went through what first it looked like an experiment (with those PE) and it may turn out as a new job!!! Ex-FAAWAFU was a bit tired with
  18. Second completed lockdown build and this one i'm pretty happy with. A nice kit which went together alright although there were a few fit issues with the top of the air intakes. Unfortunately the primer gave it a horrible grainy texture which is accentuated by the light in these pictures but it looks alright in person. I'm not sure if Black Mike ever actually carried armament, let along black drop tanks, after being repainted, but I just thought it looked good.
  19. I just came across this ad in the latest issue (May 2020) of Model Airplane International -- finally! Looking forward to this even more than as the FineMolds F-4EJ. ZM will have seven long nose variants: F-4 Early (hardwing) and Late (slats); F-4EJ and EJ Kai; F-4F and F ICE; and G. Gene K
  20. Hornby just charged me for my pre-order on the new 1/72 Phantom FG.1 so these should start showing up in people's mailboxes and in stores soon. I can't wait to get mine; I ordered 5 to get free shipping to the US.
  21. Here is my attempt at the ESCI RAF F-4J(UK) of 74 Sqn, RAF Wattisham circa 1984. Completed as ZE355 / S with the original grey fin before the squadron was repainted with black fins. Built OOB apart from a few different aftermarket decals as the ones that came with the kit were awful.

  24. Hi all. With the Spitfire complete, I've changed scale, era and propulsion method and have gone to the recent 1/72 Airfix FGR.2 Phantom with a few extras. It'll be built with kit decals of the white tailed aircraft while it was working out of RAF Mount Pleasant. I'll replace the kit lumps that are supposed to represent Sidewinders with the much nicer versions from Eduard. I love Adam Toobey's artwork. I've got a bit done on it already however I've hit a bit of an 'ugh' moment. The cockpit is fine out of the box as the cockpit wil
  25. Hi all. This one has been sitting on the shelf for a while, so with other bits and pieces drying for other kits, I got back into painting it. It's the 1/72 Hasegawa F-4EJ Phantom with Hawkeye decals to be dressed as a 1 squadron jet. This one one will be on a stick, hence the gear up. The tan had been applied quite some time ago so on Saturday night I pencilled in the camo scheme using a Faber Castell water colour pencil and then applied the light green. Sunday was the darker green’s turn. The paint has been applied freehand and this is the second model I’ve tried it on.
