1/48 Hasegawa F-4E Early Phatnom II

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents,

I send you some pictures of my other build. I used two models from Hasegawa (due to wing) F-4J (only wings) and F-4E. I used pit, exhaust and wheelbays from Aires and placard form Eduard.

here is a few photos

Your workamnship on the riveting details is VERY NEAT.

May I say that your Cockpit and IP panels is ONE of the NEATEST, TIDIEST

BEST looking that I have ever seen.

Your English is very good! Your model looks very nice too. You may want to repaint the inboard main wheel hubs, on real USAF F-4s they were always unpainted and very rusty. Here's a photo I took:

The outboard wheel is painted but usually dirty. Here's another photo I took:

Hi mate!

I send you email before a month(but I did not arrive), check mailbox (or give me mail and i send you drawnings wich i use for riveting) or go at modelforum.cz and check your PM :) To riveting I use tool from Petr Dousek - Rosie the Rivetter

Hi mate!

no, I do the rivet before using Surfacer.

here is my procedure

- pencil draw rivets on the surface

- riveting freehand

- sanding surface(sandpaper 800/1000/2000) and then I use toothbrush, sanding under water - to get dirt out of rivets

- then up comes the Surfacer :)

I use 0,75mm Rosie the Riveter - It is recommended for 1/48 and 1/32 scale.

cheers

The two antenna lumps on the bottom of the intake ducts just behind the intake part seams that you can see in this photo belong on Navy Phantoms only. They need to be removed for an F-4E. Sorry I didn't notice them earlier, hope that doesn't cause you problems.

Zigi, I don't know how accurate you want this model to be. Some people don't care or bother to change it, but just in case you are interested I wanted to tell you that Hasegawa got some panel lines wrong. In particular for your non-slatted aircraft there are panels on both sides of the model that should only be on one side or the other. For instance, the "Tennessee panel" (shaped like the US state Tennessee) on the vertical fin just under the fincap should only be on the left side. Hasegawa has it on both sides. There are others that are likewise incorrect. Here are admittedly poor drawings from T.O. 1F-4E-2-36 that show all of the access panels on the F-4E. Using these drawings you should be able to tell which panels on the model are incorrect:
