FirstLook

 

Icarus Productions continue their anniversary tail art schemes with this colourful tail for the RF-4E.

First seen at the Royal International Air Tattoo in 2005 Icarus Productions have faithfully reproduced this great looking display scheme. The base camouflage is based on the Luftwaffe Norm 83 wraparound scheme with the colourful tail art comprised of the famous Phantom character leering through a monocular onto the Greek Islands.

The benefit of the tail art is that it is provided as a two piece item that is split at the base of the fin. This will allow easy positioning of the tail decal after which the fuselage part of the decal can be lined up against. It is important to note that the light and dark blue colours on the fin need to be painted before applying the tail art decal. The instructions suggest that a copy of the tail art to help determine the border location of the two tail colours before decal placement. Colour suggestions from manufacturers are provided for the light and dark blue.
