    1/32 TAMIYA RAF PHANTOM CAMO XV498 KIT

    Yes, a 1/32 RAF PHANTOM CAMO. sadly a F-4J as a proper FGR hasn't been done yet. HK MODELS are 'supposed' to be doing one soon, but will cost an 'arm and a leg' plus a kidney! so I got my guy Alistair to see if he could do a f-4j for me. and this is the result. main problem was up scaling decals to 1/32. kit cost me 50 off ebay and he charged 90 to build it. fantastic job he has done. have included a few progress pictures as well. This will give me SIX 1/32 F-4s.

    Outstanding. It must be huge. I have a 1/32 scale Hawker Hurricane that takes up a massive amount of space.

    Very good! I built this kit many moons ago and finished it as a 43 Squadron RAF aircraft.

    Any reason why you chose 92 Squadron Robert?
    Adrian

    The missing B.707s still needed to be done: Ethiopian, Uganda Airlines, Air Zimbabwe (rainbow scheme), Kenya Airway, Air Niugini.

    DC-8s still needed to be done: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Surinam Airways, Air Spain.



    1/400 scale new mould wish list ; Tupolev Tu-114, Tu-134, Antonov An-12, An-24, Bristol 170 Freighter Mk.31, Armstrong-Whitworth Argosy, Airspeed Ambassador, Avro York

    not really Adrian. numbered squadrons don't mean a lot to me. just wanted one with an 'R' for Robert on the tail. he has also done 3 other 1/48 camo's with my initials R, J + W on them and an ALCOCK + BROWN.

















    he has also going to do a 1/48 BLACK MIKE + BLUE 75TH SPECIAL. and he is going to change a 1/32 SHAMROCKS with shot decals on one side into an ALCOCK + BROWN.

    a 1/72 phantom is around 9 inches long. most popular scale! a 1/48 14 inches. and a 1/32 around 22 inches. at least these are not very wide like the hurricane.

    For many years on a shelf in my office at work. These days carefully stored in it's original packaging in my shed. I have many models I can't display, so rotate through them.
