Phantom F-4C from 1:32 Tamiya kit

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

when I retired from business, in early 2008, I resumed my old hobby and started building plastic model kits in 1:32 scale.

From the beginning I concentrated on props, with two significant exceptions: A Canadair CL-13 under Italian flag done in 2009 and Thunderjet, still under construction.


Then last Summer, I had the opportunity to read the very nice book on Robin Olds and decided that the F-4C will be my first "modern" jet.

Some details on what I've done so far in the next post.

Besides there are still some little gaps, the job is almost done using plasticard and putty.

Second, I tried to take care of the several raised panels that, I understood, were not present on the real bird.

And finally, at least for the time being, the pylon for the belly thank.
