Final completed images of my Tamiya F4e Phantom build.

Finished in USAF 67-0309 "El Toro Bravo, 388th TFW 469th TFS Korat RTAFB, approx 1968

The Mig Kill star is confusing in that neither the pilot Lt Col Ericksen or the backseater Lt Williams were ever credited with a "confirmed" kill. One source thinks it may be present as a kill recorded by the aircraft prior to its transfer to the 388th, another source credits the kill as "unconfirmed" because it occurred during a period of ceasefire... so who knows.

Aftermarket:
Brassin burners and a set of Aires seats.
Zotz decal set.
Centreline drop tank a left over from a Trumpeter A4 kit
Model Master paint, including metalisers.
HGW RBF tags

Issues:
None at all with the Tamiya kit or resin parts as expected. Decals a bit thick and silvered in places but nothing major!

Excuse the wonky rear canopy in the front on shot, has been fixed!
