RF-4E Phantom II JASDF (Hasegawa 1:48)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This is my first submission here, Hasegawa RF-4EJ in JASDF marking. I used Eduard Zoom to enhance cockpit, aires resin exhausts (original ones are awful) and QB resin seats (just less work :) ).

For the first time I didnt use marking from box; sharkmouth is airbrushed using hand made masks and eyes are decals, drawn by my colleague. I really like this marking so I think it deserved that additional time.

Hope you enjoy it.

Regards Jiri

Great first post. Really nice build. I bet it was tricky painting the shark mouth on those curves.

What a beauty...one day I'll get to a JASDF Phantom. I swear, F-4 Phantom builders always have outstanding work...must be about the huge love for this ugly but sexy workhorse plane....Amazing.

Hi Gents,

thanks for your feedbacks! It´s really nice to hear you like it :worship:

ForestFan - all colors are Gunze C, original japanese shades as per kit instructions

EagleAviation - I didn´t want to have lower surfaces too dark and I think it dissapeared a bit on photos. But I got the same point on our local forum so maybe you guys are right :-)

Els - I was affraid before painting it but finally it wasn´t as difficult as it seems, look at photo

The weathering on this build is fantastic! The custom shark-mouth is great too. How'd you like the Hasegawa kit btw? I'm thinking about getting a JASDF F-4EJ for my next build.

Incredible work. Your paint work is absolutely beautiful. I thought it had to be a 1/32 scale model and wondered where you found such a kit until I saw the photo with your fingers in it! Unbelieveable!
