I think I like yours better, Fast Eagle. The Devil insignia looks better on the side. And the black trim around the cockpit always look good.

 

Damn. There is something about the Phantom that screams, "Let's get this sh*t ON!" :twisted:

Hammer, meet nail

 

 

You sure hit the nail right on the head with that thought.

My sentiments exactly

My copies of "McDonnell F-4 Phantom: Spirit in the Skies" and the NATOPS Manual for the F-4J arrived today, so I am in Phantom heaven!

Here's a work-in-progress shot:

Still a lot to do, including some tweaking on the VMFA-232 font and the Red Devil badge, but I think this one will turn out nice. Look for it to be finished this weekend.

The skins are interchangable to I think havent tried it yet, but you should rename them.

I didn't know Coyote had one out. Although I'm eventually going to skin every USN and USMC squadron that flew the Phantom, I've been focusing mainly on squadrons that have not been done yet. Oh well, we'll just have two VMFA-232 skins available! Maybe I'll move the Red Devil insignia to the tail so they will not be completely identical.

 

Also, as Weasel_87FIS said I've been skinning the F-4B. I assumed that dagger's request for an F-4E was a typo since USMC markings on an F-4E would be historcally inaccurate. Sorry Dagger, that's what I get for making assumptions. :oops:

FWIW, I finished my VMFA-232 skin:

As a bonus feature, I've included name tag decals below the canopy. These come blank, but if you have photoshop or a similar program you should be able to easily open the files and add names to them. The real squadron appears to have used a white "font" on the red background.
