F-4J(UK) – Tamiya (1/32)

August 29, 2021 · in Aviation · · 8 · 1.8K

Greetings all,

This has been a long-time 'as and when' project that I completed this weekend - 's 1/32nd F-4J finished as an F-4J(UK) of the famous 74 'Tiger Squadron' in the mid-1980's.

It was built more or less out of the box, but with Mastercasters' FOD covers and YellowHammer decals. Paints were all Xtracolor enamels.

It's the first time I have added crew figures to a model as my daughter requested that the pilots should be in it. I might add crews in the future as it adds a bit of life to the cockpit!

All the best,

  1. Smart man, choosing the F-4J option that doesn't include ten bazillion stencil decals! 🙂

    Seriously, very nice work and a great result.

  2. Fantastic work on this big bird, Thomas!

  3. Wise request from your daughter, Thomas @vacform
    The pilots are a beautiful addition to this great build.

  4. Great work on a UK "J" bird, I can just here those J79's roaring.

  5. Really nice Phantom, Thomas (@vacform). British Phantoms have a look all their own.

  6. Very nice Phantom! I have one of these in my future (though in a smaller scale)...

  7. Great work on this impressive kit, and I like your daughter's suggestion of adding crew members. Definitely liked.

  8. Lovely work Thomas!
