F-4J of VX-4 Point Mugu, 1/72 Monogram

March 17, 2022 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1.4K

The white bunny scheme was only carried on this for a few years in the seventies as opposed to the more famous black bunny. Aircraft was white, the markings were gray with no national insignias. I used Tamiyas US Navy insignia white rattle can AS-20, which might have been a mistake because there's a noticeable hint of grayish blue.

The kit was I used was a F-4C/D, with the appropriate naval modifications, removal of the nose I.R. probe,

proper turkey feathers [exhaust cans] Intake ECM antennas.

  1. This is a beautiful Bunny, Robert @roofrat
    Very nice and clean paintwork.

  2. Nice for something not often seen! Looks great.

  3. Very attractive scheme Robert. I loved build the 1/72 Phantoms and even rescribed a couple. But I used to struggle with those damn intakes. Argh!

  4. A nice out-of-the-ordinary scheme to make an out-of-the-ordinary model.

  5. Truly beautiful, Robert!
    Well done!

  6. Well done, Robert.

  7. Nice work, Robert. That’s a scheme I’ve never seen before.

  8. Nice work Rob, gotta love a Phantom, right ? . Any idea why this scheme was used ?

  9. I am in the middle of making F-4J with my two boys. We decided for Revell easy click, but Yours is way better fitted and made:). Nice job mate.

  10. Nicely done Robert, she's a good looking bunny.
