Hasegawa 1/48 RF-4 camera fairing: late, smooth style not included?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I just want to make sure I'm not losing my mind. Can someone familiar with the 1/48 RF-4 kits please confirm that the later smooth camera fairing is NOT included? I've seen reviews that say both styles are included, but parts W1 & W2, which are often referred to as the later version, appear to be identical in shape to the early version parts (X1 & X2), except for the missing KA-55 camera window. Did Hasegawa produce a third sprue with the later fairing?

From my IDF/AF RF-4E boxing:




Parts on sprue W are definitly for the later version. The curve is much smoother than on sprue X, and the forward diagonal bit is both longer and flatter, if that makes sense.
