Out of the ashes of the F-15/106 that has been languishing for years, I came up with an idea for an even bigger F-4 (donated by Ron ;D.)

Here's how it starts.This will be my long term project for the year, depending on how much help I get from the voices in my head. :rolleyes:

So, erm, why do your Franken-Models look better while still in dissimilar bits and pieces than most of mine do even once they're completed?!  It ain't fair, man!

Hiya Eddie

All I can say is life was easier (not much fun but easier) back in the day when I was on FSM .

Looks interesting so far, Eddie.  Looking forward to seeing more of this monster.

'Monster' is about right isn't it?...amazing stuff...so what's the colour scheme going to be? Any ideas yet?
It's a big, wide world out there...so if it's all the same to you I'll just stay indoors!

Great start Eddie.  I like the extra long Phantom idea.  What other interesting bashing to you have planned for this one?

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.


Couldn't quite work out where the 106 bit(s) were to begin with, but I have got it now.
Wow! How many pylons are you going to hang on that wing?

Thanks Gents! I can't really say what the final scheme will be because I haven't considered it yet.  This is one of those ideas that I had to get into a basic shape and go from there. I see it as a big SAC bomber with lots of MER racks holding lots of mud movers. From the looks of it, I may have to add bigger engines, but I'm not sure yet. ;D
Look behind you!

Excellent idea Eddie! Is that part of the Northwest DC-10 as a piece of the spine? You really are master of the hack and slash school of model building!
