Corgi Aviation Archive Series Diecast Model

McDonnell Douglas F-4J Phantom II - VX-4 Evaluators, "Bicentennial Special", U.S. Navy, NAS Point Magu, California, 1976

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9.5".  Wingspan: 6.25"



In November of 1975, to commemorate the USA Bicentennial Anniversary in 1976, the US Navy chose an F-4 Phantom II, BuNo 153088, to be repainted in an American flag scheme in time for the celebrations the following year. This model faithfully depicts that special paint scheme.

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom is a two-seat, twin-engine, supersonic jet fighter originally developed for the U.S. Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it became a major part of the air wings of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. The F-4 Phantom was used extensively by all three of these services in the Vietnam War, serving as the principal fighter/bomber for the U.S. Navy and Air Force, as well as being important in the ground-attack and air reconnaissance roles.

The F-4 Phantom entered service in 1960 and continued to form a major part of U.S. military air power throughout the 1970s and 1980s, being gradually replaced by more modern aircraft such as the F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon in the U.S. Air Force; the F-14 Tomcat and F/A-18 Hornet in the U.S. Navy and the F/A-18 in the Marine Corps. It remained in use by the U.S. in the reconnaissance and Wild Weasel roles in the 1991 Gulf War, finally leaving service in 1996. The Phantom was also operated by the armed forces of 11 other nations.


The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built with diecast metal and some plastic components.
