    Volcanic Aggressor

    from that photo, it looks more like the usual thing... and that photo was taken before the paint job (but retain the same fuel tanks) shows the "light" color of the engine area. the photos come from "flyteam.jp" and they have a few photos of 32-8082 airframe.

    F-4EJ Stencils in 1/48 Blue on Blue scheme

    long ago, but now discontinued, there was the HobbyDecal "dry transfer" & decals set, in the three main scales.

    F-4EJ Stencils in 1/48 Blue on Blue scheme

    if you're using the kit's decals you won't have to overlay stencils over the light gray background, as it's already there with the stencils. on the "plus" side, on the Oceanic scheme EJ that i did, the stencils where often "bundled" in such fashion it wasn't that tedious to add all the stencils.

    F-4EJ Stencils in 1/48 Blue on Blue scheme

    if you look closely to the stencils provided with the kit, you should see the light grey "outline" on many of them.

    What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    what justifies the DACO upgrade sets? ...some people knows the aircraft, some even have flew it or have worked on...and some others have just better sight than others! the DACO set is for them! for example : the wings and tailplanes of the hasegawa 1/48 F-104 are covered with rivets... which don't show on the real thing!

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    sorry wasn't intended that way... i was just answering because it was too obvious. in no way i was daring to tell you to be patient. i'm now of those who have been burned by AMK's announcements that weren't realistic... my main interest in AMK's Tomcat was for seeing them doing something else after...

    F-4 White Stencil Decal

    even if they are designed for f-4E , icarus makes a white stencil decal sheet, most should be usable. and are easily available . like at the48ers.com (i have no share in that business, just a very satisfied customer)
