Using a standard new style Hasegawa RF-4C kit I have produced this model from the 10th TRW from RAF Alconbury as seen in 1978 from a photo I found on 5057 Phantoms gallery. This is done in the original Gull Grey and White scheme as when delivered. The photo looks like it has some sort of sealing tape around the photoflash ejectors on the rear of the aircraft, which I have simulated with some paint.

The kit goes together well as is usual with Hasegawa although care in assembly is important!
