Wild Weasel

Family issues have meant that I've not got near my workbench for the past few weeks but this morning I managed to spend an hour or so painting this USAF Phantom.

It's not a great paint job - just enough to resurrect a rather tatty model I picked up as part of an eBay purchase.

Very roughly it represents a Wild Weasel Phantom II based at Spangdahlem AFB in West Germany in the mid-1980s.  In April's Big Game it will carry HARM or Shrike missiles (treated as PGMs in Cold War Commander).  I'm going to restrict it to attacks on SAM or AAA targets to reflect its doctrinal role.
