IFR Probe wells on Brit and NAVY Phantoms


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

As some of you might be aware I am slogging my way through a Brit Toom conversion on the WIP section.  Before I epoxy the widened intakes on I thought it might be easier to detail this area, but I just cannot find any info/photo's

 

I was wondering if any of our fellow Britmodeller Phantom guys can help?

 

Cheers

Anthony

Excellent info John, thank you for sharing the pictures🙂

 

Anthony, the kit has a "bulged" cover plate (or door as McDonnel would have called it) for the probe when it should be flat; it is wrong for both British and USN Phantoms. The last picture John Posted shows this well. This will be possibly the easiest fix for anyone building the Tamiya kit.

 

Cheers,

Antti
