    Last September I posted a (crappy) pic of the Testors F4 Phantom that I had started.

    Well, I finally finished it (as far as I care to, it's not my favorite model).

    Here 'tis.

    Thank you. Yes, it's straight from the box. I spent more time filling gaps and scraping, filing, and sanding seams, etc.

    Testors are decently priced, but they make you appreciate the obscenely priced kits more.

    Another bird to add to my wishlist, not the Testors kit though! You did a great job with that one, love that scheme! 8)


    Ever see the video on youtube of the German Phantom nearly barbecuing some spectators in a low pass back in the 80's??

    I was at an airshow here when i was a kid at fairyhouse racecourse, there was an RAF Phantom doing a display at it. It did a mach 1+ lowpass at about 50 feet! Afterwards it was on the news that it broke windows around the area! Apparently there was bit of a mixup, the pilot was told not to go lower that 50 meters, not 50 feet. :lol:

    It's something I'll remember till the end of my days.

    Dunno Colin, I just remember that bird swooping down out of the clouds and the noise as it passed!
