1/48 Hasegawa FGR.2 Phantom
December 22, 2015 in Aviation
Here is my 1/48 Hasegawa FGR.2 Phantom. I obtained it from another modeller as a “partial build” kit- I think only the wings were asembled- it was so long ago, i forget! I bought some Seamless S****r resin intakes for it (UK Spey engine intakes are different from the other F-4’s) and then after some more assembly, it sat for about 4 years.
I finally worked to complete it this past summer.
As with most Hasegawa kit decals, white is usually “ivory”- so I had to hand paint white on all the kit markings.
I set up a hypothetical load out- I could not find a photo of the setup, but based on the photos I did find, I figured this could have been possible. I had to use bombs from an Airfix Sepcat Jaguar kit.
I left the canopies loose so that they could be removed to view the cockpit, and then replaced. I have a Royal Navy Phantom on the build list so you may see it next year at this time.
