Feature Article with Dean Large
A note from Geoff C.
Here’s a quick look at how Dean’s lovely conversion from the Revell McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR-2 to Royal Navy FG-1 turned out – very nice isn’t it!
Over to you Dean…
I recently built a Hasegawa 1:48 Phantom, which although it came in the FGR-2 boxing from Revell, I did it as an FG.1 from the Royal Navy instead.
All the parts were in the FGR-2 boxing for the FG-1 version, with the exception of the slotted tailplanes, and I swapped my un-slotted ones for the correct set with another modeller a while ago.
I also got the Quickboost resin ejection seats, the Eduard colour PE set, Aires resin jet pipes and the Alley Cat resin full depth intakes. Model Alliance decals were used, although when I started I hadn’t made a final choice as to which airframe would be represented yet.
