From Wiki: The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) operated 24 McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II fighter-bomber aircraft in the ground attack role between 1970 and 1973. The Phantoms were leased from the United States Air Force (USAF) as an interim measure owing to delays in the delivery of the RAAF's 24 General Dynamics F-111C bombers. The F-4Es were considered successful in this role, but the government did not agree to a proposal from the RAAF to retain the aircraft after the F-111s entered service in 1973.

This is not one of those Phantoms. lol But it's my interpretation with limited resources.

Here's my reveal for the Phantom GB. A quick summary of the build, it was a great little kit for the novice. It went together well and wasn't problematic.
It's my second Aircraft since I re-entered modelling, the first being a, literally OOB, Spitfire starter kit fom Airfix I built in a weekend the day after I watched a few of Bobby's videos to see if I still ... had it?

First time I've used lots of things, too many to mention here without boring the pants off everyone.

Anyway, the GB was a lot of fun. Challenging, frustrating at times, but a very nice experience overall.

Here's the pics, I hope you like them:











No, not a tail-sitter, just the angle the shot was taken. :/




The cockpit is a bit of a mess, a job for later when I have a few more skills under my belt.
















Thanks for viewing. [smile]

Lol thanks Fabian, although I've only jumped up one scale to a much smaller plane so I don't think I've gained much. [smile]

Thanks Aidan. I just read your thread I'm sorry you can't be there for the finish. But thanks for chipping in and encouraging others anyway, it's certainly appreciated from my end. Look forward to you getting some new mojo mate. [smile]
