FOD covers

I did a quick search and found FOD covers for Phantoms in 1/48 and 1/72, but not in 1/32. :smiley19:

 

They're not too difficult to build. What style did you want? That might give an idea as to how to advise you on building them yourself.

Try this:

 

  • Hold a piece of paper over the inlet opening (easier if the airframe isn't together yet).
  • Rub a pencil around the whole area of the inlet, holding the pencil flat against the paper
  • Once you get an outline of the inlet on the paper, cut it out and trace around it on whatever you're making the cover out of.
  • Cut it out, and....
  • Viola'! A FOD cover.
  • Make a handle out of stretched sprue or whatever.
Hope that helps!

Does anyone know who makes FOD covers for Tamya's 1/32 F-4 Phantom? Thanks

AMS Resins makes intake covers in, well, resin for the Tamiya kit. Quickboost makes a set, too. CAM made some at one point. The F-4 intake cover has some depths and angles to it, but they're buildable with sheet plastic if you want to go that route.
