McDonnell Douglas F-4N Phantom II – VF-84 “Jolly Rogers”, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. Navy, 1975

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9.75".  Wingspan: 6.25"



VF-84 “Jolly Rogers” received the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II in 1964. In 1970 concerns about the F-4B’s eventually led to 228 being converted to F-4Ns. These aircraft were completely stripped, refurbished and upgraded. The first F-4N flew on June 4, 1972 with F-4B 150415 being the 95th aircraft converted. In 1975, VF-84’s last cruise with the F-4N was in the Mediterranean on board the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt. F-4N 150415 was one of 78 F-4Ns later converted to a QF-4N drone. VF-84 converted to the F/A-18 Hornet in 1976.

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a two-seat twin-engine jet fighter originally developed for the U.S. Navy in the 1950s. Proven to be highly adaptable, it also became a major part of the air wings of the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force. The Phantom was used extensively by all three of these services in the Vietnam War, serving as the principal fighter / bomber for the Navy and Air Force and in ground-attack and reconnaissance roles. The F-4 Phantom II was also sold to and operated by the armed forces of 11 other nations.

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 and F-16 in the U.S Air Force; the F-14 and F/A-18 in the U.S. Navy and the F/A-18 in the U.S Marine Corps. The F-4 was used in the reconnaissance and Wild Weasel roles in the 1991 Gulf War, finally leaving service in 1996. It was produced from 1958 to 1981 with a total of 5,195 built in several variants.
