Hasegawa 1/72 F-4B Phantom II
VF-84 Jolly Rogers during their 1965 VN tour. Backdated to an early bird, no ECM antennas and un-slotted stabilators. Several details from scratch but I also used photoetched sets, resin weapons, TERs, wheels, afterburner cans, ejection seats and cockpit mirrors, aftermarket decals (with several errors on the graphics) and turned metal probes.
This pair were started in 02/19, by 09/19 I set this one aside in order to finish the F-4S, by late 12/19 I went back to this B-bird to finish it up. So in total, these Rhinos took me a little over 14 months.
My observations about this kit are the same than in the previous S-bird since it is the same basic mold. Hope you like it.
