After all the battles with scale model intake seams, they got seams after all. Makes sense when you think about it. Be difficult to produce an intake in one piece. Unless real planes could order resin AM STUFF!! Lol

That is a nice video. Very well done. The Phantom is the plane that the end of "Top Gun" was based on. In the real story the Phantom has a Mig closing on their 6. The pilot actually tumbled the Phantom backwards over the Mig, regained level flight and shot the Mig down. True story. The co-pilot did not know what the pilot was going to do till it was virtually over with.

Read it by accident on a site where real pilots share history. I still have my Academy Phantom, unfinished from a GB way back . I will finish it! Good luck with your kit.

Not a project to take lightly. The decals are insane!

Yeah I can imagine! The mig-21 wasn't a walk in the park and the f-4 has a lot more!

Yeah nice video that one. The F-4 in the pics from my link is at the RAAF museum at Pt Cook in Victoria here in Australia. My brother lives at Pt Cook and my father served there in national service when he was younger. I haven't been to the museum yet (it was closed the day I decided to go! Grrr), when I do finally get there I'll take a shipload of pics of everything I see there and load them up somewhere for people to reference. 😊
