[b] I made versions of this model from a set of Academy + decals for the F-4J. As you can see in the picture box is the version of the F-4C, but no worries in a box manufacturer took care to make a set of existing versions of Reg who dream for example, a rich set of noses, upper parts of vertical ballasts and similar additives not including enough rich weapons.

This model is the F-4J Phantom-30-MC VMFA-115 stationed MCAS Iwakuni, Japan 1976

Do not have a message and just this machine was used in this set of weapons, but I decided to fantasize a little bit and hang the "Christmas trees" .After just so fun and richly looks
Of course there is also something for fans subtitles eksploatacyjnych.Ten model has a surplus, gluing itself this subtitle is the day job !!!!

Ryszard,
What a fantastic build. Simply an outstanding paint scheme and decaling effort.

While I'm certainly no expert in the differences between the F-4C and F-4J, the nose cones are certainly different, and your conversion really looks quite good.

Your choice of paint scheme is certainly a very colorful one, as you really nailed it. Loads out looks like it's loaded for bear with a full load of bombs.

Just a solid build from start to finish.

Joel

I like it, but....

...just a question, as in potos I cannot see it, Have you use the Sidewinders pilonos from the "C"?

Those are the only parts for a naval Phantom not available in the C box

Another part you miss to change are the two "hooks" (I don't know the exact Word) to tie down the aircraft under the fron part of the wings. You have put the plain USAF style parts instead of the Navy parts, I'm refering to the trapezoidal parts next to the outer rear wings of the front Sparrows

The other outside noticeable diference is the position of the in flight refueling device, in the navy planes it's hiden to the right of the copilot (There must be a rectangular register there) and in the USAF models is a receptacle in the upper body behind the cockpit

But the it looks like a Phantom and I like it. You can consider this for your next one...


P.D. In the front landing gear of the Sundowners model, Have you use the "C" front hatch? It looks like the double light equiped one from the C/D and not the Navy style that you have used in th J
