Default This Looks Cool For 2022

Apparently twin JC P300s for power.

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year

I’m sure it will be amazing with twin JM300 turbines …

Why did they not make it look more like an F4?

Looks like a C/D model version. Maybe where the nose cone detaches one could get an optional longer nose (F-4G)? How about a single version with a JC P-500 and bifurcated pipe lol.

It does look cool, although there are quite a few F-4's out there - some really big ones too. I think that his Mig-17 is cooler.

As far as the size is concerned, keep in mind that the max. weight under the LTMA program in the U.S. is 100 lbs and the max installed thrust is 90 lbs. I doubt that this F-4 would meet either of those limits.

I saw that something nice in perfect size is coming from MIBO JETS in 2022 too. Su - 22 Fitter in 1:5 scale.

Looks nice, but to my untrained eye the canopy looks a bit “off”, any Phantom experts able to tell me that I’m wrong?

hopefully the bifurcated pipes hold together at those higher thrust settings.

This is a beautiful piece of work, front to back. Very few on this forum have any idea just how much work is involved in the tooling for a model like this. I know a little about Phantoms and this is by far the best one yet.

that is a definite plus one on the twins should be twins, always.
same applies to trimotors and quad motors right on up to 8 on a B-52 type.

Looks like it just had a price drop to 1.5, always better to wait for the after Xmas sales.
