1/600th Aircraft - USN F-4 Phantom Mig Killer project.

It has been a while since I did any work on USN aircraft and a spare hour or two over last weekend gave me time to dust off some bare metal and get them undercoated.  Normally I concentrate on one aircraft at a time but that is taking a lot of time so I thought I would batch process the next ones up to try and see if I could produce all the F-4 Phantom Mig Killers from the two Osprey books

Current situation on aircraft as of today (9th July 2014) means that I need 16 air frames to start the project keeping some of the old models (10 B models and 6 Js) which is 6 packs of models, and 20 if I keep the old models and replace them with new metal (11 B Models and 9 Js) which is 7 packs .  The beauty of 1/600th aircraft means that it isn't too expensive :) and I can always find a use for the spare aircraft.....

Old and new scheme for those interested in the differences

Couple of shots of the ones in the new scheme.


  1. They are fantastic. I'm rather fond of the 1/600th stuff myself. How about a full squadron next?
