Mc Donnell Douglas RF-4E Phantom II Revell 1/72
July 1, 2014 in Aviation
Hi, here is my Recce – Phantom from the german Luftwaffe. It was one of the aircrafts from “AG 52″ that took part in the NATO exercise ” Best Focus 82″ in Karup, Denmark.
There is a special painting on the fin.
The Revell kit suffer from flaws on it s outlines, canopy too low, nose too slim, intakes
too wide, but they are cheap and go very well together, the Hasegawa kit is also not perfect and expensive !
If you look inside the intakes, there are the engines, the cockpit is great for this scale as well the wheel wells. The surfaces are deeper engraved than Hasegawa s, but petite !
The Phantom is one of my favorite Jet airfcraft and like most legendary aircrafts, their are
a lot of nice and interesting schemes.
The kit is Revell, the decals came from Airdoc ( markings and stencils seperate ), the colour is Xtra colours, but self mixed with others to match the camo shades better.
It is not my best kit, but the photo session, outside, came out nice, i managed to damage the tailplane, it hangs in the false angle, you will notice it !
I hope you like it
