OUTSTANDING! I've been very vocal about the lack subjects concerning my first command, CV-41... You Sir, have stepped up and represented. Killer work on a subject not covered by many...

Eddie, there's an outfit out of Malaysia called F-4Dable Models that makes VF-151 Hi-Viz and TPS decals for the F-4S during it's final days on Midway (https://www.facebook.com/f4dablemodels/). I got the TPS set for my ZM F-4S. They look nice and are printed by Cartograph. Furball has TPS A-7s with Midway markings too...and the Hi-Tech boxing of the Monogram F/A-18 has Midway-era VFA-151 decals. And the RVHP RF-8G conversion comes with VFP-63 decals from a Midway det.

Kudos to you, brah. You completed one OUTSTANDING build depicting that particular Phantom! Build some more like this so I can get some moto to finish an Academy F-4B. I love looking at these pics. Thanks for sharing!

Semper Fi,

Looks like a nice build of the Academy F-4B, but due to it being a shelf of doom project, why didn't you replace the Stabilators with Hypersonics replacements that correct Academy's horrible blunder?
