Revells 1/48 Phantom, disguised as 892 squadron  from Ark Royal. 

Had this one sitting in the corner for a while now, not even sure why I abandoned it. Finished off this weekend, sprayed on the black panels along the spin (although they may be a bit small) and attached some sidewinders.  

Xtradecal decals used for 892 markings. Sits nicely next to the buccaneer.

I've always liked the Royal Navy Phantoms. Yours looks very good to me.

Very nice. Back in the 70s they used to live at Leuchars when the Ark was in port.  Did the tail markings wrap around the front of the fin though?

No, that's my mistake, I think on the xtradecal it shows that it wraps around, or at least goes to the very edge of the tail. I havnt got the confidence to run a scalpel along the tail to trim it back a bit.

Beautiful.  The Phantom looks so good in FAA colours.  A very nice Buccaneer too.
