Awesome, what a great looking bird. Love the weapons too....one thing I've always loved about the Phantom, all the many and varied weapons loads you can attach.

I had built ( or half built ) a Desert Storm RCAF Phantom a few years back, and I've always been after some low viz coloured markings like the RAF had, I think they would work really good on a scheme like this as well.
