1/48 Hasegawa F-4D Phantoms No's 128 and 129

Gallery Article by Shawn "phantom" Weiler on Nov 8 2010


Both of these kits are Hasegawa 1/48 scale F-4Ds.  Both are out of the box as far as the actual models go.  With the exception of the decals.   For the South Korean plane I used Hi decal markings.  For the Ohio Air force reserve I used Repli Scale decals.

On the Korean jet I added a Hasegawa weapons set target. Adds some colour.

The Ohio bird was the headliner for the 1988 London International Airshow.  Best airshow ever.  28 of 30 invited Phantoms showed up for the 30th anniversary of the Phantom airshow.  I have not seen an airshow with 30 aircraft lately, forget 30 of one type.
