This is possibly the worst bit of diecast to join my collection this year and is a strong parallel to the last century wings intruder, which was likewise a terrible effort.
Goodness, I've been mulling over buying this this Phantom for some time now and held off because it's not an SEA model.
Glad now I bought Aviation books instead.....
Photo shows a brilliant bit of Diecast/Modelling though.
