My repaint, mod and build of Bruno's Kfir. I had already done an F-21 repaint and build and this one was repainted at the same time. I finally was able to build it. I have a few camo alignment issues to fix.
I also modified and repainted Yoav's Kfir in the same scheme, so if I ever decide to build a big model one day I will be ready.

Thanks,
Brent

Thanks Péricles, yes I always liked the F-21. I think they are still flown by a private aggressor company.

Next up "Shamrock 201" the only Marine jet with a Mig kill during the Vietnam War.

Maj Lee ‘Bear’ Lasseter and Capt ‘Lil’ John’ Cummings were experienced aviators serving with VMFA-333 ‘Shamrocks’, which was assigned to Carrier Air Wing 8 aboard USS America (CVA-66). The only Marine F-4 squadron embark on a US Navy carrier during the Vietnam War, VMFA-333 had commenced combat operations on Jul. 14, 1972. Initially flying CAP and strike missions in Route Packages III and IV, VMFA-333 had been committed to the US Navy’s ‘hot’ Route Package VIB by September. Targets in this area included the heavily defended areas around Haiphong.
Thanks largely to the expertise of veteran RIO John Cummings, the AWG-10 radars fitted in the unit’s F-4Js were among the most reliable anywhere. His pilot, ‘Bear’ Lasseter, had been a leading figure in the Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron, which developed and taught Topgun-style ACM tactics. Following Lasseter’s training, ‘Shamrocks’ crews were highly proficient in air-to-air combat.
Their Sep. 11, mission was a MiGCAP orbit north of Haiphong from which they were vectored onto MiGs circling Phuc Yen airfield. Capt Cummings picked them up on radar at 19 miles, despite the VPAF jets being at low altitude, and the ‘Shamrocks” wingman, Capt Scotty Dudley, saw the leading silver MiG-21 at six miles. Lasseter launched two AIM-7E-2 Sparrows, but the MiG pilot evaded both weapons. A turning fight then developed immediately over Phuc Yen, with copious AAA fired the Phantom IIs. ‘Bear’ loosed off his other two Sparrows and two AIM-9Ds, but the MiG pilot kept up his low-altitude evasion.
Dudley soon had to break away with fuel starvation, as his jet had only received a partial in-flight ‘plug’ earlier in the mission. The MiG pilot chose that moment to reverse his turn, possibly assuming that Lasseter’s Phantom II (BuNo 155526) was out of missiles. However, ‘Bear’ still had two Sidewinders left, and he fired one of them. As John Cummings told to Davies, ‘The growl of the Sidewinder tone was loud enough to drive you from the cockpit, and it really did a job on that MiG. Everything of the cockpit was gone’.
Maj Lasseter then saw a black MiG-21 threatening Dudley’s departing Phantom II, and he warned his wingman to ‘break’ before firing his remaining Sidewinder, which also guided successfully. They saw the MiG diving away, trailing smoke, but then had to concentrate on urgent SAM warnings and a chronic shortage of fuel that compelled them to egress directly over Hanoi city. Moments later an SA-2 exploded near their right wing, and Lasseter regained control long enough for them to reach a safe over-water ejection, albeit at up to -6g. Dudley’s F-4J (BuNo 154784) was hit by AAA minutes later, and its remaining fuel gushed out. However he and his RIO, 1Lt J W Brady, also made it ‘feet wet’ over the ocean and eventually joined Lasseter and Cummings back aboard CVA-66 to celebrate the only all-Marines MiG kill, and another ‘damaged’.

I have repainted 5 Navy and Marine Phantoms, 4 of them Mig killers. I am just finishing up on the second build.

Brent

Thanks for your kind comments, here are profiles of the repaints I have completed. I just have to build them to test the alignment. Screaming Eagle 113 is almost done.

Thanks,
Brent
