Really nice!  I didn't recognize that as an F-4S without the intake antennas (had to look under the wings).

Me like all Phantoms!!!!   :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

well it it is an S trying to pass as a J after all lol.

and heres a pic of the bird with full war load.


So its a Phantom F Mk-1 of 892 squadron, fleet Air Arm. operating from HMS Queen Elizabeth some time in the mid 1970's.

Why F-1 rather than FG-1? simple, the Navy wanted its Phantoms for CAP work not ground pounding, thats what the Buccaneer was for.

experience has taught me to expect the worst.

And heres were the decals for the Italeri F-4S went to............


This is an F-4L of VF301 based at mirimar in 1983. An americanized F-4K. Apparently it was looked at. Of course its a Matchbox kit.

The two aquatic canberra's are on hold for now (got bored of em ) so heres another one. photo shamelessly pinched from the Cosford show thread.thanks to brother narses for the photo :)

Its an Airfix mash up. The fuss is the Airfix B-57, with the wings pinched from yee olde Airfix Canberra B(I) 6. So its powered by RR Avons rather than the usual B-57 American engines. The decals came from the same B(I) 6 kit. It also has the Gun pod from the B 6 kit :) althou you cant see it or the hard points under the wings :)

The B 57 wings will find their way onto the rest of the afore mentioned B 6 at some point.
