Fujumi 1/72 Phantom FG1

Recommended Posts

Evening All,

 

This is one of two recent builds I have completed depicting RAF jet fighters,

 

I used the Fujimi 1/72 Phantom FGR2 kit which was pretty easy to work with. It just needed a brace across the airframe to ensure no gaps between that and the upper wing surfaces.

 

I decided to depict the FG1 aircarft XV571 using the colour scheme from late 1986 from Model Decal set 89. As you will see this has the black and white check on the tail only.

 

Enjoy.

Lovely job on your FG1. I would change the weapons load out to an air to air load though or just take the inappropriate rocket pods off.

You know I sold one of those on eBay a few years ago. Sold it to some chap in the Ukraine. I regret that. They're good kits.

Nice.

 

It looks a lot like the Fujimi kit, actually.

 

👌

... but someone’s corrected the armament!

Lovely job.  I haven't seen one built with that black and white spine before.  Well done.

In fact they have incorrected the Armament !   That aircraft is  depicted as being fitted with Sparrow and AIM9G  (painted white).  The grey Phantom in that particular colour scheme would have only carried  Skyflash and Aim9L which were grey.
