Airfix''s Phantom FG.1 has been out a while now, and I did buy it when it first appeared but surprisingly I have only just opened the box and looked at the contents, so with that in mind here is a inbox review of the kit.

Andy,

Great review, and great history. Thanks for getting this up, and looks like another potential hit to the wallet.

Trivia, but it was actually an F4H-1F (subsequently designated F-4A) that visited RNAS Yeovilton on 9 June 1961 and RAE Bedford on 10 June during a European tour following the Paris Air Show that year.
