Another beauty comes of age. I've always rather like the RF4's. Cracking shots by the way!

I think RF C/E are the best looking F-4s too. Those take offs look a bit spirited.
In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.

Great selection! Love the colour schemes , pity they couldn't have waited a few months so they could send one of them to RIAT in 1 of those schemes. :-(.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Alistair :P

More great Toom shots :thumbs:

Those conformals' certainly don't do much for the look of the normally sleek Viper :whistle:

Cheers :thumb:
