WOW. :analintruder:

This is one of my absolute favorite aircrafts and in the right colours as well. 

I'll take a seat and will enjoy the show.

Be careful, the gear.

My Kurnas broke down with SAC metal gear, due to the awful Hasegawa gear joint! Strenghten it! My advise after repair.

Happy modelling

Thanks for the advice dov, but I don't have the metal gear. This kit contains the plastic version, and I don't have had a bad experience with that. My previous Phantom was also a Hasegawa kit with plastic landing gear, no problem...but thanks anyway mate!

 

Cheers, Jos.

Black Primer from Gunze Mr Surfacer 1500...but, I forgot one thing that was mentioned by a modeling mate. Those bulges on top of the wings doesn't belong on IAF F-4E's only on USN and USMC versions...

What A2A missile options are you planning? 

 

Two AGM-142 Popeye missiles...they are huge!

 

Actually they're Air-to-Ground missiles...

Yes, p.5 through 9 of the book are dedicated to the Super Phantom.

 

All Double Ugly Phantom pholumes are excellent, highly recommended!

 

Cheers,

 

Andre
