I will be using the old Italeri 1/48 F4E that I've already got in my stash for this build. The kits not bad,but it does have raised panel lines. I might do a bit of rescribing if in in the mood for it. I've also got a pair of Aires resin ejection seats that I intended to use for the other phantom in my stash,the Hasegawa Royal Navy Phantom kit.Hopefully they will fit this kit. And To finish the model I got a decal sheet from Hannants. In 2014 the Helenic Airforce celebrated 40 years of the Phantom in its service. One aircraft was painted in this scheme. I've spent an hour this evening researching the camouflage colours on the Internet. All Greek F4E's are in the Aegean greys scheme,which aren't the same as American aircraft. I've settled on Tamiya XF55 for FS36307, Humbrol 145 for FS36237 and Tamiya XF20 for FS36251.These are the colours I will be using, unless anyone knows different?. I don't think we have any Greek modellers on the forum who can help me out?.
