Academy 1/48 Phantom F-4B `Sundowners`

Post by tc2324 » Tue May 21, 2013 9:48 am

Again this is for my upgrade to 1/48 scale VF-111 collection. A nice collection of sprues which brought back memories of the old Matchbox kits as you shall see.

A few things of note.

1. Picture one shows the outside and inner covering. A nice touch.
2. Picture two shows the paint list on the outside of the box with a nice conversion list. Saves you a bit of time searching for yourself.
3. Picture three shows the A3 colour decal sheet and you also get a weapons load sheet depending on what you want.
4. Picture four. If you have a nervous disposition when it comes to the smaller decals..., look away now.
5. Picture five. The instruction manual is nice and big with your standard Tom Cruise `Maverick` figure listed.

The rest of the pictures show the decals and sprues and note that the last two pictures are x2.
