Historical Note:


The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a two-seat supersonic long-range all-weather fighter-bomber originally developed for the U.S. Navy by McDonnell Aircraft. The Phantom was used by the U.S. military from 1960 to 1996, and was the primary air superiority fighter and a workhorse fighter-bomber for the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps during the Vietnam war. Replicating the CAG aircraft of CVW-7 aboard the USS Independence with 18 mission markings, lost to enemy fire on September 1, 1965. This limited edition, 1/72 scale, die cast replica of the warbird includes an amazing attention to detail and features an opening canopy, a well-equipped cockpit with hand-painted crew figures, optional-position landing gear, and so much more!

    The VF-84 Jolly Rogers is an iconic squadron name. It has been around since WWII, if not before. However, the Phantom II Jolly Rogers squadron, I believe, is the best.

    The quality of this model is incredible. I have been making models for a long time, but as I am getting older, it is becoming more difficult to continue. I could not have done a better job than what you get with this airplane. The decals, insignia, the call-outs, the cockpit have such detail it is stunning. The model is expensive, but what you get is worth it. It is a true collectors piece.

    I highly recommend Aiken's Airplanes. The order was shipped promptly and arrived with no problems.
