This is the Navy's primary multi-role attack fighter. The model is a 1/48th scale Monogram kit, built pretty much, right out of the box. I decided to do a "retro" paint scheme and tail flash based on the old F-4 Vigilantes.

Also dropped flaps and slats along with adding the air intakes back to the engine inlets. The kit came with a PE set for the cockpit and crew ladder.
