In the heat of the Vietnam War, two USAF Phantoms wreak havoc on Vietcong emplacements.
First introduced in 1960, the McDonnell Douglas The F-4 Phantom II is arguably the most prominent American fighter of the last half century, serving the US Navy, Marines and Air Force. Capable of the interceptor, air superiority fighter and fighter bomber roles, the type still serves the interests of a handful of countries today. With a less than elegant shape, it was often called ungainly names like "Lead Sled" and "Flying Anvil".

I wanted to try designing something non-humanoid for a change. Studied a few camels for this one, before proceeding with a sketch and trying out a kitbashing method to flesh out the mechanical parts. I also tried to avoid over-rendering the entire thing, spending most of my time on the head and the front leg.
I keep telling myself to draw more, but I always end up painting instead. Therefore, I shall vow that the next post be purely lines.
