The Tailwinds tandem two seat, twin engine F-4E Phantom II was developed for the US Navy for McDonnell Douglas and had its first flight in 1958. We love how they continued the P-40 Tiger Shark nose are in this jet. The F4 Phantoms were the only aircraft used by both US demonstration teams the Thunderbirds used the 4E and the Blue Angels used the F-NJ. The aircraft has most recently been in service against the Islamic State group in the Middle East.
Our F-4e Phantom II model is crafted from pressure cast composite resin, and is a striking aviation gift with its impressive looks. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and proudly put on display. The model requires minor assembly as the wings need to be inserted into the fuselage. A handsome display base is included.
