M.D. Douglas F-4 Phantom

25.6k agnanSatrio  5 months ago

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor and 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 also adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Air Force, and by the mid-1960s had become a major part of their air arms. The Phantom is a large fighter with a top speed of over Mach 2.2. It can carry more than 18,000 pounds (8,400 kg) of weapons on nine external hardpoints, including air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground missiles, and various bombs.

The F-4, like other interceptors of its time, was designed without an internal cannon. Later models incorporated an M61 Vulcan rotary cannon. Beginning in 1959, it set 15 world records for in-flight performance, including an absolute speed record, and an absolute altitude record.

    that osean livery from ace combat is what tops this thing off

    This plane looks very nice, but you can do better. You captured the overall shape very well, the outline looks great and everything is pretty much to scale. The cockpit area and air intakes look great.

    But there are problems here. Your tail has split elevators, that's a big no-no for anything supersonic. All superson aircraft have all-moving horizontal tails, no exceptions. You left out the "dog-tooth" on the leading edge of the main wings, one of the Phantom's most distinguishing features. Aside from that, consider putting more effort into the tail instead of attaching vanilla wings back there and building your own landing gear.

    I know this is pretty harsh, but you're gold now and you've been building for a long time. This is a great looking build and I can see from the parts of the plane that you got right that you've got the skills to improve the parts you missed.

    It flies really well! I activated the weapons, and I thought, “no cannon..?” Oh... Wait, it’s the F-4. Hahaha.

    The nose is short, but it looks great other than that!
