A new F-4 Phantom have been added! For some odd reason I haven´t done any VF-201 aircraft despite their very sharp looking paint schemes. So naturally I had to get one done. While working on it I realized that I wanted to add both as a profile and in a 3d scene and now both are complete. But more on that later. The depicted aircraft sports a paint scheme the squadron used on the late 70s (more specific in 1978). There´s a few unusual features in the paint scheme which is covered in the podcast, however to me the most important thing is that i have reworked my Phantom basemodels fuselage! Perhaps not noticable to anyone but me, but there were some slight errors that would show up in 3d scenes, so i decided to redo the entire fuselage. I´m pretty happy with the outcome! Don´t forget to check out the podcast that deals with the very colorful CAG bird from [...]
The illusive F-8E Crusader from VF-111 "Sundowners" have finally been depicted. This aircraft served with the Sundowners in 1965 while CVW-16 was embarked on USS Oriskany (CVA-34) on their very first combat deployment. The E-model Crusader was in VF-111 service for a very short time, so finding reference to this rendition was very difficult indeed, but now it´s done, and added to the VF-111 "Sundowners" section. As a new feature you can also hear Aircraftprofiles.net new podcast, which deals with this exact aircraft. Hear the story about the aircraft and the creation of the profile by watching the video below. You can subscribe to the channel to make sure you´ll not miss future podcasts:
Here´s a print that was completed very recently. It depicts Lt. Tony Nargis MIG kill, on spe. 9th, 1968. This was the last MIG kill of the Vietnam war, by a F-8 Crusader (although VF-211 would down a MIG in 1972 without even firing a shot). The flight of two F-8Cs from VF-111 Det. 11 encountered two MIG-21s and Nargi followed one of them as it tried to evade the approaching Crusaders by making a steep climb and a loop. A single Sidewinder was fired and blew off the MIG-21s tail section. The print is available for sale via aircraftprofileprints.com, both on paper and as a "ready-to-hang" aluminium print.

Time to yet again build the RAF/RN section. This time with a Phantom FGR.2 of No. 74 Squadron. Complete with both roaring tiger head and tiger stripes. The Spey power Phantoms differed from the US versions in more ways than what is readily visible, the entire intake section is wider and deeper, and the exhaust feathers used on the US versions is gone. But apart from that the good ol´ Spook does look like it´s suppose to, in fact it looks like a fighter is suppose to :) Click the link below to be taken to the 74.
