1/48 Hasegawa RF-4C Phantom (#135)

Gallery Article by Shawn "phantom" Weiler on Feb 7 2011


This was built for the recee group build. This is a Spanish air force recon phantom using Hi Decal markings and the ultimate in high tech model tools to fabricate the refueling probe.......A Q-tip. Yep, used a Q-tip and the end of a spare Hasegawa A-4 probe that was lying around my spare bin for a few years. I used a past build as the example to create the refueling probe.

This is my 135th phantom I have put on display here on ARC. As with a good chunk of my recent builds this one (the final flight scheme) was made to replace a older Egypt one scheme in 1/72 that is no longer worthy to keep on the shelves.

Also included is a shot of some of my recent builds, all together for a family shot.
