Hi there.
This will be the first topic I start on my Phantom build. It will a topic where I hope to get as much information, tips and hints about 2 big American Heroes from the Vietnam War. "Blackman and Robin".
One off these planes I want to build. The easy way, build the Tamiya C/D and there you are. Well I don't think that way, so the challenge might be to build 'Chappie's' bird, his wingman's plane, who knows. It all depends on...

Maybe a group build is a good idea. I live in Thailand nowadays and it is interesting to know USAF mission was a very delicate and top secret enterprise from several airbases (more than Ubon and Udorn).

Anyone with information, like the Wiki pages, but also other in links, books, etc., please feel free to co-host this topic.
Sort of remembrance to Robin Olds last flight over Vietnam, September 23, 1967. Ode to campaigns they flew. Night Owl, Bolo, etc.

Hope you all appreciate this to set up a build topic, sharing information everybody can use for reference, techniques and much more (I hope).

Kind regards,

Robert Jan
