Does anyone have any idea where I can get some 1/72 intake bungs to suit an F-4 Phantom? I spent a long time last night looking around the net but couldn't find any. I would prefer resin ones cos I'm lazy and not real good with PE. Ta Paul

Hi Paul
F-4s sure as hell make great bungs for 747s and A380s (TIC). Hope to see ya tomorrow at the Qantas open day.

Cheeky bugger. The way I see it. A 747 has little chance and at the moment, an A380 has no chance of ever catching a Phantom. So you'll have to get your bungs somewhere else LOL I'll be looking after the RFDS Kingair between 9 and 11:30am so come and say hello to the long haired git mate

I remember that there was an article in FSM magazine that included a pattern for 1/72 F-4 intake bungs. And it involved two pieces of plastic card and three bits of plastic rod.

Now, this one time (1985?) at Williamtown when the USAF F-4s were visiting, and me and my mate (who was the base air conditioning contractor) were drunk as...and flightline...and USAF MPs and dogs... but I digress.

I'll see if I can locate the article.

G'day Paul,
Mate, it was certainly good catching up today at the Qantas Open Day, shame about the bloody atrocious weather. Not an F-4 Phantom in sight, but at least there was plenty of 1:1 scale Boeing and Airbus heavy metal laying around, especially that beautiful 707, (and the King Air wasn't half bad either!!!). Hope you enjoyed WINGS.

Yeah mate. Great to meet ya and finally put a face to the login. As for there being no F-4 there. Everyone knows that Airbus's and Boeings are like a%$eholes, everyone has one LOL. Sorry mate. Couldn't help myself. I must say, QF did put on a pretty good show today. And damn JT's 707 is very nice indeed. Didn't quite make Wings today so I'll be off to it tomorrow. Cheers Paul
