Default F-4C Canopy Sills

Iím looking for photographs that show the aircraft canopy sills showing the exact location of the slots and holes the canopy hooks and guide pins go into. If anyone has any such photographs of actual aircraft, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance, John

I will have to look up the book you reference, what is the title?
I have not found any clear pictures on line, the search continues. Thanks

It's called The Modern Phantom Guide Book, from Reid Air Publications. It's a great reference!

So far I have tried to contact Jake and one other person trying to obtain a copy of Jakeís book. No replies from either, thereís one on Amazon but I canít see paying $220 for the reference.
Any sources out there would be greatly appreciated.

You can order directly from Reid Air Publications. Last time I looked they were still available.

I have been to the web site several times and have not been able to find it listed. I will check again, but I donít believe he has them any more on his web site.

Take a look over on Aircraft Resource Center’s walk arounds. There’s some photos of F-4 cockpits showing the canopy sills.

Sting,
It has been so long since I looked at this site that I forgot the cockpit shots it had. I think I have what I need to accurately place the slots and guide pin holes.
Thank you very much for your help!
John

GEH737,
I have frequented cybermodeler many times and you are correct, they are a good reference site. Their web site has undergone some improvements over the years in how well it delivers content also.
Thank you for the feedback,
John
