    Zoukei-Mura F-4D, corrected fuselage?

    the short nose and the long nose are not the same in that area. as Z-M got it (pretty close)right on their short nose phantoms, they'll have to change it on their long nose, because there is a difference in between both (like shown in that post here by MoFo) ...but i wouldn't call that "to correct", they'll need to tool new parts, because those parts are different.
  3. i'd rather wait for ICM to do theirs, or wait for a resin conversion for the ICM kits. boxart might be the best you have when buying some of the KittyHawk kits. if this one is like their early MiG-25PD kit, it'll be a dog of a kit to build...

    Zoukei-Mura F-4D, corrected fuselage?

    Thank you! exactly my thought... and the most ridiculous of all...is that Z-M WILL CORRECT the aft fuselage on their long nose phantoms...

    Zoukei-Mura F-4D, corrected fuselage?

    i don't know, but i'm absolutely sure that there was no change made to the fuselage tooling. i'm not even sure if Z-M have acknowledge yet the shape issue of the aft fuselage of theirs F-4 kits. let's hope they improve it for their long nose phantom series...

    Tarangus/Special Hobby updated Viggen kit

    the new sprue is from their SK-37E kit. so it has the JA-37 tail.... and AJ-37 canards.(but barely noticeable) but as i'm the owner of a few of those kits, i'll take two... when i'll find it!

    Some civilians for your dios by Reedoak

    1/72 ! that's insane! ...just WoW! (but that's just too small for me! ...i'm a 1/48 guy) can't wait to see one day some 1/48 pin-up to join in, in order to do some "Pin-ups&Planes Calendar" photoshoot diorama with the photographer.

    German F-4F Phantom Question

    i can't remember my source, but i remember having read black on white "No Beyond Visual Range" AA missiles for West Germany, it was against their Doctrine, and a wise choice in such cluttered Airspace...

    German F-4F Phantom Question

    IIRC no BVR for the early F-4F. (hence no AIM-7.... later, in the 90's, when upgraded to ICE, they got AIM-120 capability) maybe also ALQ-119 (or some other jamming pod) sorry if that's not very unusual load.

    Calling all F-4J Vandy 1 experts!

    on the 48-061 furball decal set, there is red outlines on the star bands of the XF vandy 9, and gold outlines on the "bunny" vandy 1 ones. they don't have the exact same shape either.

    Calling all F-4J Vandy 1 experts!

    i don't know if the decal sheet is right, but i'm pretty sure that there was some variations in the scheme over the years.
  15. Awesome news! i always wanted to build an early U-2, and now it'll possible soon!
