Hi guys!

 

Well, I didn't resist to the temptation of trying this.

 

This is the Mirage Factory RF-4C and I tried a stock ThirdWire F-4B skin on it.

After few modifications, here she is!

 

Now it needs some decals and I cannot do that.

So, here's my request to the decals makers :

 

I need the vertical tail squadron marking and the fuselage squadron number decals.

Maybe few other numbers if you think it's necessary.

 

Is there a decal maker that wants to do that?

You choose the USMC recce squad you want, as long as it used that generic USMC grey skin.

 

Thanks for reading :)

Cliff:

 

You might want to check the SF2V Air & Ground Expansion Pack. We essentially did the same thing as you to make an RF-4B, and we have two skins for it. There might be something in our version that you could use for yours.

 

Best,

For a Vietnam Era VMCJ-1 or VMCJ-2, A white Tail will do. VMCJ-1 had a "RM" on them. J-2 had a "CY" with a Playboy Bunny on the Rudder. If it's post-Vietnam, VMCJ-1,2,3 and VMFP-3 were the most painted up'd Phantoms in the Marine Corps. There are so many different Tail Paint Jobs that it would take weeks to do them all. RF-4B's of the Marines had 17 different Paint Jobs. The Vietnam-Era ones are the easiest to do.

 

VMCJ-1 had a Standard Tail with a canted "RM" Tail Code on them.

 

VMCJ-2 had a Standard Tail with a canted "CY" Tail Code with a Black Playboy Bunny Symbol outlined in Red on the Rudder.

 

VMCJ-3 had a Standard Tail with a canted "TN" Tail Code with a Dark Green Delta Symbol in front of the Tail Code.

Slightly OT - I know the USN did not operate the RF-4B but did the USMC RF-4B's ever serve aboard a carrier?

Hey, if your OT brings such RF-4 picture from Soulfreak everytime, be my guest Spinners, go ahead and OT to the max! rofl.gif

 

Yes those USMC RF-4B tails are quiet numerous and colourfull. I like the Fox from the VMFP-3 as much as Spook (Soulfreak pic).

 

 

Thank you very much Mr Howes!

 

Your RF-4B skin contains everything needed to make a good mod.

My main regret is not being able to use all of your decals because of the "transparent thing" issue (more than 6 decals on the same mesh...)

 

So here's the result, this skin is from eburger68 SF2V Air & Ground Expansion Pack drinks.gif

 

Let's Recce!
