1:48 Phantom FGR 2 92Sqn Special anniversary scheme

Recommended Posts

This is the quarter scale Phantom FGR 2 92Sqn special blue scheme by Hasegawa. Difficult and expensive to come by, but still the only one on the market. As always an excellent kit with few hangups.  Extra detail was provided by eduard PE and resin. The base is home made.

 

Built for one if the aircrew of this aircraft with only three training missiles. This aircraft is being restored at my local museum: Tangmere Military Aviation Museum.

DANG! awesome, great, stunning, drop dead phantomesque! Hmm...Better look for a Revell 1/48 box of a FGR.2, it contains Hasegawa sprues AND also a blue special scheme. Not sure if that one or the other (as there have been 2 Phantoms in blue). Cheap times are gone but for 20-25 € still availabe second hand.

Anyway, have I told you that I love that blue scheme? Still on my unwritten list for modelling projects.

R Spreckly,

 

Very handsome paint job and looks well constructed.

 

You can’t go wrong with those now “old Hasegawa Phantom’’  molds. They are still the most accurate in overall shape.

 

Well done good sir
