Whoahhhh; that's a nice pair of, ehm, engine nozzles you got there Spinners! How did you get that sorted? Fake pilot method? The nozzles themselves look a lot shorter than the stock 'E' ones.

I'm assuming the RWR fairing on the vertical tail is a fake pilot job.

 

I've already got a few interesting back stories for Dhimari FGR5s going through my head. Hoping for a release to the what-if hangar :flyer:

I've been lucky enough to have been given this 'hybrid' to play with. In the 1970's it was my dream aircraft and, as a prolific modeler, I bashed the Frog F-4M and Hasegawa F-4E together to make one but this one is much more neatly done!

The model spinners is showing is summat I made up a while ago, it's a combination of Oli's FGR2 fuselage with an F-4E nose section grafted on.....I also did a similar one using a RF-4C nose & cockpit
