Tamiya 1/48 F-4B Phantom
Most enjoyable build of the Tamiya F-4B depicting an aircraft of VF-111 Sundowners when on March 6,1972 destroyed a Mig-17 north of Quang Lang airfield. Pilot and radar intercept officer at that time were Lt.Gary Weigand and Lt.Bill Freckleton respectively.
Paints used were Tamiya for the most part and Model Master for the 16440 fuselage color. I did not use the kit decals but instead used the Eduard sheet D48096 "Good morning Da Nang" . Very minimum weathering and no stenciling as this aircraft was supposedly repainted at squadron level.
