1/72 F-4J/ tribute, group build
This is Monograms 1/72 F-4J, of VF-31 in 1976. I used aeromaster , homemade, and spare decals to represent the one I was assigned as plane captain . Standard load of missiles,and a blivet [used to carry the aircrew’s luggage on cross country hops. The kit needed a lot of filler and was slightly warp around the cockpit.
The aircrew names are real – LT Robert Hutchison- Line Div. Division officer and LTJG Michael Collins, They were lost in The Med.when their F-4 crashed .Their names were not on this a/c, I don’t know which one they were in when they were lost. Both are in the last photo, Don’t look to long at the close-ups you’ll see my gaffs, Thanks for looking
