Phun GB - Phabulous Phantoms! was created by Xtr3meNZer
Bit of talk going through on the "New Acquisitions" thread about a few of us having some Phantoms in the stash, and potentially a fun build.

Not sure if we're going to have time limits or anything like that, I'm just creating the thread for discussion. Either way I am going to be building this model :)

Thought I would just kick off the thread and go from there.

I've been looking for an excuse to build the 1/32 Revell kit that I bought some nice aftermarket Luftwaffe decals for, so count me in. B)

Nice.

Just added a poll so people can say "yay" or "nay" for the GB - put "nay" in there so people can still see the numbers :)

That will be awesome K2. Are you going to look at any AM?

Also, if anyone has a Wild Weasel Phantom they want to get rid of, or know of someone selling one, let me know. I will probably look at picking one up.

I was lucky enough to get a 1:48 'B' from our very own G1 last week (from his TM auction) but was planning to hold-off until the Vietnam War GB at the end of this year, that said I have so many F-4's in all versions & scales that I would happily jump-in if only to clear out some shelf space !! - Perhaps a 'G' in 'Euro 1' camo:

I'll definitely be in, I am however like Fritz where my track record is 0 for all the GB's I've ever joined in on. :blush:
But you never know how I'll go. I have got a 1/48 Hase G that is part started so I could either do that one and keep the academy C for the vietnam build or just do the C for this one instead.
I do like the euro phantoms but I prefer the Egypt 1 scheme, like the below pic.

Just remember, we're talking fun build, no prize, just a fun GB we all can be involved in, or not... I don't even think it would need a time limit... I don't know :P I don't normally organise these things.

OK, so NOT part of this phun build,... erm, I just cracked-open an old Hasegawa 1:48 'C'/D' kit and started building it. I take no responsibility for my actions, it's all the fault of everybody here... maybe :whistle: - There'll be a thread in due course. I'm just so weak :blush:

It's a fun build - there's a fair bit of interest... why not just kick it off now? I don't know anything about how to make GB threads.. Maybe one of the Admins can set something up?

I'll be hoping to start mine in the next two weeks

I think it should be the rule that PH gets used instead of F for any words involved with this GB, it will be a phun way to liven up the group build... :lol:

I'll be a mod with you Kane, just PM our benevolent dictator (G1) and ask him to start the thread/forum for the GB.

Easy Kane, I don't know about phinishing it.... especially with my track record. We will see how I go.

Hmmmm. Got a few planned builds coming up. But if I can get hold of a 1/48er for cheap, I could be tempted... or a 1/32 F-4C/D for that matter :whistle:
