Historical Note:         Historical Note:     On April 16, 1972, pilot Maj. Dan Cherry, flying a F-4 Phantom was engaged in an air-to-air combat battle with North Vietnamese Mig-21's. After a harrowing event of twisting and turning for position, Maj. Dan Cherry successfully landed a missle into the right wing of the Mig-21. The Mig-21 pilot,  Nguyen Hong My, ejected from his plummeting aircraft and survived the event. Years later Maj. Dan Cherry, now a retired U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen., and Mig pilot Nguyen Hong My became life long friends! Hobby Master has captured this engaging story of two enemy's becoming best friends in their release of both pilots aircraft as they flew on that fateful day in April 16, 1972! Both the F-4 Phantom and the Mig-21 are being release with the respective pilot's signature! (also available unsigned). Check out the video below for the story!

About the F-4 Phantom:           The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engined, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor fighter/fighter-bomber originally developed for the United States Navy by McDonnell Aircraft. It first entered service in 1960 with the U.S. Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it was adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Air Force by the mid-1960s and became a major part of their air wings. The Phantom is a large fighter with a top speed of over Mach 2. It can carry over 18,000 pounds (8,400 kg) of weapons on nine external hardpoints, including air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles, and various bombs. The F-4 was used extensively by these three U.S. services during the Vietnam War, serving as the principal air superiority fighter for both the Navy and Air Force, as well as being important in the ground-attack and reconnaissance roles by the close of U.S. involvement in the war. The Phantom has the distinction of being the last U.S. fighter flown to attain ace status in the 20th century. During the Vietnam War, the USAF had one pilot and two WSOs, and the US Navy one pilot and one RIO, become aces in air-to-air combat. It was also the only aircraft used by both U.S. flight demonstration teams: the USAF Thunderbirds (F-4E) and the US Navy Blue Angels (F-4J). The F-4 was also operated by the armed forces of 11 other nations. Israeli Phantoms saw extensive combat in several Arab–Israeli conflicts, while Iran used its large fleet of Phantoms in the Iran–Iraq War. Phantoms remain in front line service with seven countries, and in use as an unmanned target in the U.S. Air Force. Phantom production ran from 1958 to 1981, with a total of 5,195 built, making it the most numerous American supersonic military aircraft.

  1. Phantom Phanatic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2017

    I have purchased eight of these models. As a young marine I worked on a photo/recon version of this airframe '70-'74. I enjoy the attention to detail and paint schemes on all my HM F-4s (Navy, Air Force, Marines). My only wish is that 1:48 scale could be used in the future. They may be only half again as heavy as my 1:32 Bf 109. Thank you HM and Aikens for these wonderful planes and great customer service.
