Hello dear friends!

The F3H-2N Demon is a typical example of forgotten aircraft which I thought that I'd never find in the office of my favourite kit dealer!

Serious error since Czech manufacturer Grand Phoenix have released this very nice aircraft in 1/48 scale!

This high class short run kit, included resin and photoetched parts

Some little improvements were made with my old good friend "scratch", the forward landing gear was completely rebuild and two sidewinders pylons were added.

I've used an Eagle Strike decal sheet to create a VF14 aircraft seen in 1957.

Hope you will like this illustrious ancestor of fabulous F-4 Phantom!
