McDonnell F-4E Phantom II

Auto Credit Based on EngineerOtaku's McDonnell F4H-1 Phantom II

Hi guys! I’m back but with something I’ve been working on for a long time.
With consent from EngineerOtaku, I brought a new toy to the table. All credit goes to him, as the base was completely his design.
I also need to give credit to CoolPeach, as the tailcode was made by him, but I won’t need to use other people’s letters, names etc soon. As X4JB has allowed himself to start teaching me how to make my own.
I completely forget who created the AIM-9L/N’s. But whoever it was, thank you. (I’m also working on my own AIM-9’s, had to use as a filler)

VTOL down for flaps
Trim / Trim
AG1 Tailhook (note, not a navy version)
AG2 Formation Lights
AG3 Nav Lights
AG4 Jettison Centerline Tank
AG5 Jettison Outboard Tanks
AG6 Jettison Missiles
AG7 Punch Out and Eject
AG8 Masterarm
90% and above is afterburner

I won’t crowd the desc with details, so here’s a link to Wiki

I had fun making this, so Enjoy!

Here’s a video about Eject Safety

    So, I love a good Phantom, this one certainly looks the part, though the flight model is much more accurate on your Marauder. I have to say you’ve really improved your SP skills in the last couple of months; have you considered using the triangle and intake technique for building wings?

    @WolfSpark Yeah same here, it's really good, especially the code included to get it to act realistically, All in all, I'm excited to see your next lot of Aircraft.

    Well, the thing is, this flight model is close to near realism performance. It takes a while to do a 360, giving it the “brick” turnrate as stated, and if trim is applied to help the turn, it makes you go into a stall. Like, I get it, but I got a ways to go. I need to do more experimentation on flight models one day @Alta2809
    I honestly thought the Ejection seat would pick up more attention tho too.

    Don’t stress, it’s most likely the flight model and arcade-ish performance but none the less, if you made it realistic it’d do way better. I like the build btw. Or people are lazy and downloading and not giving you an upvote because they don’t have an account. @WolfSpark

    A majority of the people who downloaded haven’t upvoted. Makes me feel bad. I must work harder on other builds.

    @EngineerOtaku I like the Idea of the F-4G, there isn't enough Wild Weasel aircraft around the site so it would be pretty original

    @ChrisPy Honestly I think his Phantom rolls better with just the custom ailerons than mine with both the custom and stock ailerons.

    I'm debating on and off if I wanna build another set of F-4 Phantoms; another Navy/Marine F-4B or J, an F-4E(J) or F-4G, and an RN FAA F-4K FG.1. I want to see how much I can improve after the F-14, F-15, and F-1.

    Mostly the things that made it different. All except the aircraft itself, the letters and the missiles.

    The cockpit, ejection seat, formation lights, lights, the fuselages on the wings to smooth them, the gun, etc etc. So I’d say maybe 40%, more or less.
