Something I've wanted to build for a long time was Phantom FG.1 or FGR.2 in the Grey/green camo. I wanted to do either a 23Sqn or 43 Sqn but deals seemed non-existent. The 1/48 kit is also difficult to find at a reasonable price these days. I found out that Hasegawa do a limited edition Treble One Squadron boxing so I ordered it from HLJ in Japan considerbaly cheaper than a Hasegawa or Revell was priced at in the UK. Anyway, here it is. Finished with a brush in Xtracrylix Dark Green and Dark Sea Grey with Light Aircraft Grey undersides. I changed the roundels for Xtradecal ones as the Hasegawa roundel red was too dark, too like the WW2 brick red.

Top notch. Looks a great kit and that is a job well done. 111 Sqn camo Phantoms looked superb.
He's done another book. You're joking.

Looks great Derek.
I am tempted by that kit - need an FG.1 on my shelf again :)
