The kit goes together really well with no issues.  I added Aires exhaust nozzles and cockpit set and also modified the cockpit panels to better suit the AUP variant. I put in Seamless Sucker air intakes. The Lightning Pod was taken from the spares box as were other antennas, the bird slicers were scratch built from Evergreen plastic strip. 

The Phantom II has been painted using AKAN and Gunze acrylics, I used decals from ICARUS DECALS, which also went down flawlessly.
