Product description

Take to the skies with the Airfix McDonnell Douglas FG.1 Model Kit.

With regard to aircraft that have operated from the decks of a British aircraft carrier, there can be little doubt that the McDonnell Douglas Phantom FG.1 was the most spectacular. The Phantom was the largest and heaviest aircraft ever operated from a British carrier and required a special breed of airmen to fly them.

Fleet Air Arm Phantoms had the primary role of defending the fleet at all times and in all weather, with a secondary role of strike attack. Designated Phantom FG.1, these Navy jets certainly made for an impressive sight and were some of the most attractive aircraft ever to serve with Britain’s armed forces. Operating this huge aircraft from the relatively diminutive deck of HMS Ark Royal required a number of significant modifications to these Phantoms, as well as to the ship itself – they would also require the very cream of Britain’s fast jet pilots to operate these fighters successfully.

With the withdrawal of HMS Ark Royal from service in 1978, all remaining Fleet Air Arm Phantoms were transferred to Royal Air Force operation, but still able to display their naval heritage.

This kit will be the perfect addition to any model-maker's collection.

5 Stars5.0 / 5
Airfix McDonnell Douglas FG.1 Model Kit 1:72 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from F.4 Phantom tops in the sixties tops now. Beautiful model comes in a very sturdy box. The sprues are well made and the F4 has clean lines comes with 3 sets of transfers for its service at Yeovilton and H. M. S. Ark Royal. You can make the model in 3 varieties including one for the carrier hanger deck with nose open and wings folded. Mine will have undercarriage up as it will be on the ceiling. The only thing I don't like is that there's no pilot. But throughly recommended this model and absolutely from hobby craft, your wallet/purse will thank you for it. From now on all my modelling supplies will come from hobby craft.
