Tamiya 1/32 F-4C Phantom USAF early scheme. Vietnam 1965
February 8, 2017 in Aviation
This is my Tamiya Phantom in the early USAF gull gray & white colour scheme used until around 1966 when the SEA camo scheme came into use.
I loved building this kit even though it was a few years ago now. Cockpit is Black Box and there are Aires, Quickboost & Cutting Edge resin detail sets used as well.
The seats were very unusual in that they both had their respective belts arranged differently! – Very cool as you never see 2 seats looking alike in that respect.
Stencils were by Isradecals while the main decals I think, were by Cutting Edge.
I’ll start with a few light construction pics to show some progress before moving onto the finished article.
I was seeing stancils in my sleep when I’d finished this one!
The last picture, courtesy of the USAF – Special thanks guys! It shows the look I was aiming for in the phinished Phantom.
Please excuse the ‘Kamikaze’ Spitfire pilot trying to scupper the build in one picture – You’ll all be pleased to know he missed! 🙂
I hope all you Phantom Phans out there like it!
