Mat Irvine: The Pharewell Phantom’s phlight marked 40 years of continuous Luftwaffe service, a career that started with the first delivery, on May 18, 1973.
The box-art shows the Pharewell Phantom during its final air display. The Phantom in the background is one of the others that flew that day.
The essential reason for this particular Phantom variant is the unique colour scheme, as depicted in the decal sheet. Metallic colours are the most difficult to print, but the gold here comes over very well indeed.
