    Just finished this. In the late 60's/early 70's, I was in the USAF, assigned to the 307th Tac Fighter Squadron at Torrejon AB, Spain. When I initially arrived we had F-100s, but soon got the F-4E's. I've marked this model with the 307th TFS and 401st TFW markings and colors. The tail markings are from one of the actual F-4E's we had. I also made the stand.

    Very nice. I believe that camo was referred to as the 'Snake Scheme'

    I probably loaded the practice weapons and ammo used on this aircraft. I was on Pete Cuti's and then, Larry Odom's load crew.
