Mc Donald Phantom 5 (finished page 3)
« on: April 06, 2020, 05:15:09 am »
As I did with the Tornado becoming Tornanard, my Mc Donnell F-4E Phantom 2 (Academy 1/144, ordered yesterday) will become a very small canard single-seater with maybe rocket engines (or very very short turbojets, depending on the possibility not to include air intakes)… <_<

There was only 1 in stock remaining, I hope this will not be cancelled checking the actual stock... :unsure: :-\

Yes: at the end, with mirror copy, the zwilling version will have a double nose like Buck Roger's craft

I have been informed that the parcel has been sent to me. So... if the virus permits the postman to deliver it, the Phantom 5 will become true (plastic but true)... ;D

News! I received an E-mail: "Are you satisfied with this product? in case you have not received it yet, wait"
So: not immediately, but the parcel is clearly on its way... :-\ ;)

Here is the top view of my project (rocket engine version, hoping the air intakes can can be removed without tons of putty): <_<

In case the plastic will not be exactly what I hope, there is a turbojet version hypothesis: <_<

The 4th of April (Greenwich time) I ordered an ink cartridge (to print the schoolwork of my son at home) then the Phantom model for myself. And today I received the ink cartridge ! So :
1/ The postman is not dead, not even in the hospital
2/ I will probably receive very soon the Phantom model...

Makes me think of the Sky part of the UFO Skydiver.

Drawing the turbojet-version top view, it seemed I cannot shorten the F-4 as much as I wanted.
But, adding the air intake on the profile, I see a possibility: shortening as I wanted while cutting away the wing-fuselage junction to reduce chord (and span, sorry PR19_Kit): :unsure: :-\ ;D

Tut, tut. :(
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I have tried to illustrate my guilty project: :-\

Like Brenda Lee was singing: "Sorry... I'm sorry... So sorry... I was such a fool..." :-\ ;)
