Version 2 of my F-4 Phantom. This time the E Version with the nose cannon.
About this creation
This model represents Fighter Squadron 84 (VF-84) Jolly Rogers. Built to "minifig" scale with 1 stud equals 1 foot. I spent a lot of time to get the nose with cannon and functional landing gear all working. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The rear landing gear under the winds is also functional. I'm not as happy about it as the front since it doesn't fold flat to the bottom of the wing, it sticks out by a plate or two, but at this scale it was the closest I could come.
The stripe on the side was added after I had completed a first version of the model before I decided on a VF-84 scheme. Kind of a pain to rip apart and put back together but I think it came out pretty well.
Under the wings on the outside are fuel tanks follow sidewinder missiles and then sparrow missiles held close to the fuselage.
