The Rhine

Just spent a few days working on the banks of the Rhine just up river from Bonn at Königswinter.

I thought I might see a few Phantoms there, knowing there are a number used on that river, sadly though, I only saw this Bernico.

Looks like it's stepped. And they've splashed the V24 tail fin.

Cors you can, I'm sure it'll meet minimum length & weight without too much trouble. Might struggle a bit with a 130 though.

... only looks like a bernico bigfish, its a 1.gen romulan warbird repainted, the romulans make their tourist-tours in that corner
... most of the phantoms are here around km 500 mainz/wiesbaden, königswinter is ~ km 645

I think you have been fooled a little here by JF if you look close you can see it's not a Bernico, but a rather shabby Chaudr*n copy
My first thought was a V24 due to wing at the back but it's longer than one of those
