  1. Live your F-4, Jason, and I love it weathered!
    I have seen non weathered, freshly painted F-4s: they look gorgeous, but nothing beats the looks of a used, weathered Phantom!

  2. That's the very early scheme. Beginning in 1980, they did an overall wraparound of the SEA camouflage, which lasted to the late 80s when they got the gray scheme. Looks good.

  3. Great result, Jason.
    The weathering turned out very nicely.
    Well done.

  4. @fiveten - I went flying with the Weasels in 1982 for Air Force magazine (still can't believe I got paid to do that - best rollercoaster ride evah!) I have a bunch of slides from the flight including a beautiful shot of two at the break showing their undersides. I need to find some place to digitize them.

  5. Very nicely built and finished, especially in 1/72 scale, definitely liked.

  6. Looks amazing Jason!
    Nice to see the Tamiya kit built , and completed very nicely! You do not see too many F-4G Wild Weasels built.
    I think it is the Italeri kit reboxed by Tamiya. I cannot believe the original kit is 30 years old.
