Tamiya 1/48 F-4B. VF-111, Sundowners 1972, NAS Miramar.
I haven’t built an F-4 since 1978. So this looked like a good start.
Added Bullseye decal set and resin seats.
Quinta 3D Cockpit set.
Weathered with airbrush, acrylic and oil washes.
I hand painted the bare metal with Vallejo Metal Colors and turned very well.
Unfortunately the canopy had some fogging after all was done.
Hope you like it.
Looks great, and you have given it a superb finish. Wonderful build
I’m sure you’ll get nothing but praise on this model Anthony @Alpha23, that is one sharp looking bird and who doesn’t love the “Sundowner’s” markings! Nice clean build and something to aspire to. Love those Phantoms!
So beautiful, the F-4 is my favourite aircraft and you have done a great job here. Love it!
Looks stunning Anthony, thanks for posting
beautiful. how were the bullseye decals?
Yes passion is still the best tool great work
Thanks for all the kind words from you all.
The Bullseye decals are really nice but need to be careful not to touch them after each coat of decal set. Let them dry several hours between setting coats.
Gorgeous work! There is no better advertising for this kit than a well built model such as yours!
Sweet looking! Great job there! I’ve been doing armor for years now. I just started adding some birds to the stash. Maybe it’s time to switch gears? Thank you for the inspiration!
Thanks Gil. Lately I’ve been alternating between armor and planes.
Fantastic looking F-4B, congrats!!!
Phantastic build ! Thank you for sharing !
That looks awesome, well done . Cheers.
Really nice job!
But as an aside, for other modelers, they upgraded to the Mk-H7 rocket seats in mid 1968…
Good to know. Are the seats in mine not correct?
