Brilliant 1/72 scale model of the British Spey engined Phantom: McDonnell Douglas F-4K Phantom FG1 XT872 004 in the markings of 892 Sqn Royal Navy, while aboard the carrier HMS Ark Royal in 1977. The aircraft is adorned with Queens Silver Jubilee markings from that year, in addition to the lovely looking 892 Sqn Omega insignia. This model features the British Phantom with wider fuselage to accommodate the Rolls Royce Spey engines. Also includes optional undercarriage positions, opening canopies, moving control surfaces, full weapon load, optional guns and drop tanks plus a normal or extended nose leg to display the model in carrier take-off mode. Looks amazing on display. Limited edition of only 1,250 pieces. It was originally intended to produce only 750 of this model, but demand was so huge that production was extended. Therefore some models will have cards stating the run to be only 750 pieces. In my opinion this is one of the best 1/72 scale diecast models to date by any manufacturer
