Finished my Fujimi Phantom FG.1 XT864/007 today. Shown is "007" as she appeared in early December 1977 as a member of 892 Squadron deployed on HMS Ark Royal. The kit is a fairly decent replication, but there are a few nice additions, like rubber wheels, and multiple version capability with the decals.

 

As many know, the primary role of the FG.1s was fleet defence, which consisted at that time of numerous flights to intercept the Soviet Tu-95s as they roamed the North Atlantic.

 

"007" is depicted on station, ready, armed and about to go "Hunting for Bear".

 

Enjoy

I still like F-4s. I remember them flying in and out of Bergstrom AFB in Austin!

Really like the exhaust staining on the hot parts. Nothing says fighter like a Phantom. Thanks for posting it.
