My take on the Tamiya F-4B Phantom.
This was my first jet build(3rd 1/48 plane), so ofc I had to challenge myself and use aftermarket parts and oil weathering for the first time.
I wanted to try and make this a really weathered and used jet - I think I succeeded in that!
Overall I'm really pleased with the build! Some minor things could be better, but i learned from them and the Phantom earned its place on the display shelf.
I mainly use Instagram for my models, so there is a bit more info and updates there. However I will update my projects here from time to time!
