Its been over a year since I built a Phantom. Guess its time for number 204. This is a 1/48 Hasegawa special addition kit from back in around 1986.

The decals have long since yellowed, and the rubber wheels have gone bad over the years. However the metal photo etch and great metal landing gear still work as well as ever. The decals used are Furball. I went with a cleaner well maintained model this time.

This kit was built with an Academy model for a group build on the forums.
