no. 48-102 Phantoms Phorever is a new offering from CAM Decals that
features two F4E Phantom II airframes in South East Asian camouflage
schemes and a single airframe in three-colour wraparound. The artwork
was prepared by Kamikaze Studio Concepts. The sheet is beautifully
printed and in perfect register.
The first aircraft is 70-0306 ‘War Lover” from the 34th TFS, 388th TFW
based at Korat in Thailand, 1972. This shark mouthed aircraft is coded
JJ and features nose art on the left hand intake. The shark mouth is
of a different shape and size to the traditional F4E type and will
make an interesting change for Phantom Phreaks.
The second airframe is 67-0288 “Arkansas Traveler” of the 469th TFS,
388th TFW also based at Korat, 1970. These markings will be familiar
to those that built the old 1/72nd Hasegawa F4E. This aircraft
features a the traditional shark mouth, a green fin top, is coded JV
and has a large nose art marking, a blue disk with a hillbilly riding
a bomb, for the left hand intake. There are also eight swastika kill
markings below the windshield.
Finally, 79-0040 is a 4th TFW Seymour Johnson based Phantom that has a
five colour chevron that is painted over the mid spine of the
fuselage, 4th Air Force and TACAIR Command shields, black fin top and
black low visibility stars and bars.
A range of warning and caution markings are supplied for each airframe
as is a red stripe for the turbine plane.
This is another quality offering covering interesting subjects from
Brookhurst Hobbies for
the review sample.
