Here are some images of Dave Porter's F-4E Phantom and here in his own words is his description.
This a 1/48 scale F-4E Phantom from Esci. I built the kit straight from the box and I used Aeromaster paint and decals. It has nice recessed panel lines and it fit together very well. The F-4E was a logical development of the F-4C and F-4D as the Air Force’s front line fighter. The “tree” and the gun were important additions that made the F-4 come into it’s own. No Viet Nam era Navy Phantoms were equipped with a gun.
