Thought I'd better start posting some pics before I get accused of either not doing anything, or trying to enter something I've already built!! :)

So... current state of play of F-4C no.1. This is being built straight from the Hasegawa kit, the only change being the addition of some aftermarket ejection seats, and decals from Eagle Strike sheet 72025.

It will represent a/c 63-7604 from the 559th TFS, 12th TFW tail coded "XN" in the standard SEA scheme.

Hi,

Any update on your phantom? I'd love to see it after seeing your flipper coming along so well. But now I realize that you wrote in the thread that you have not to much time to spend on it so guess that applies for this one too :pray:

Curious for any development anyway!

Greetings!

Funny you should ask! I made a real effort to move things on today, and here's the current state of progress...

I'd sprayed the underside a few weeks ago, and here's the tan sprayed (FS30219):-

Need to go back and tidy up now, then spray the radome...

As usual, somewhat delayed, but it's finished! Well, apart from the odd last minute detail...

Just to recap it's an F-4C 63-7604 "XN" of the 559th TFS, 12th TFW from Cam Rahn Bay during September 1969. It's the Hasegawa F-4C kit in 1/72, basically box stock but with Quickboost seats and decals from Eagle Strike sheet 72025.

Very lovely Phantom indeed !!! I got the same decals over here, good to know how they look on the model it self !!!

Got one question;

F-4.jpg

Is that a AN/APR-30 RHAW as found on old F-4B's ? Did you make that, or is it aftermarket ??

Greetings,

Daniël
