    I think that the germans really knows how to deal with the Nazi thing, and it's all in their honor.

    KA Models aftermarket parts

    YMMV i've bought the F-4B nozzles, and they were way too thin... they have some bubble holes... and the F-4B PE colors is too dark...(bought at the same time, when they were the first AM stuff available for the Academy kit)

    Russian jet pilot coming from Reedoak

    the details look amazing... but, to me, it feels a bit weird, because it has its helmet visor down... something i haven't see quite often on a "standing" russian pilot...

    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.
