Very impressive work Sca.  A very pretty scheme for the F-4.   And as others have said - the weathering looks very realistic.  Nice !

I'm a big fan of the Rock River Phantoms, and this one is spectacular! The weathering is spot on!

That F-4 is so nice I had to enlarge each photo for a second look; and it looks even better up close. Excellent work scapilot!

Wow, back when the IPMS Nationals were in Virginia Beach they offered a tour of the USN air base in Norfolk and we got to get up close and personal with the F/A-18s. You've done one of the best jobs I've seen of getting the salt and sun weathering of the paint right there. 

Kudos sir!!! 

 

 

Thanks a lot.

Very nice. An "S" is just a "J" in disguise anyhow.

Lovely work. The weathering is perfect for a Rock Rivers "S" Phantom. What paints did you use? Are there no Hasegawa S Phantoms to be found now days?

What make is this phantom kit? I love the look of the J, I don't know why but the shape of the nose looks the best to me.

Had a guy pick me up to build him a Phantom.  It's technically supposed to be an S variant Phantom, but we had a hard time finding one in 48th scale, and in the end he was more or less just wanting something to represent the markings so we settled with the J model.  Fun build.  Enjoy.
