Three days to US release of the F-4E (theoretically).

Surprisingly no pre-order at Sprue Brothers.

 

Anyone from Pensacola area want to split the Volks US Shipping cost? I'll deliver. :thumbsup2:

I just ordered up a sheet of Werner's Wings: Capt. Steve Richie and friends. I'm assuming the F-4E he and Chuck DeBellevue flew were/was early F-4E's. Can anyone confirm that? The sheets are for Monogram/Promodeler (says late slat for wings). If not, I'll save them for a later release from ZM.

Got my 2x pre-orders from SB.

 

The '72 MiG killers all early F-4E or a mix?


Most F-4Es that served in SEA were early “hard wing” aircraft. A few slat equipped  birds made it to theatre late in the war (1973-74) after the last F-4E “kill.”

 

However, many F-4Es that fought, including MiG killers, had the newer Midas 4 gun blast diffuser, the latter apparently not included in this first boxing by ZM.

There’s a report on HS from someone who has the kit that both gun muzzles are in the box.

Yea both muzzles are in the kit.

Parts M33/34 are the late parts.

Single piece for the early muzzle split for the late.

 

 
Good news!

Hey, Steve, how do you understand the SprueBrothers status on the F-4E, which says it's for pre-order only, but also says 'In Stock'.  Which is it, do you know?

They are supposed to arrive tomorrow based on the note Sprue Brothers posted on the “what’s new” page- so, technically a preorder for a few more hours ☺️

I suspect that the “in stock” is there just for their shopping cart system to process an order because it won’t allow anyone to order something that isn’t in stock.  That’s why there is a large explanation on the item page that it is a pre-order only.

Thanks for the info Rich.

 

I imagine most of the Israeli F-4Es used in 1973 Yom Kippur were the early F-4Es? So this kit should work?

 

Any parts in this kit for TISEO sensor? Eh nvm Jeffrey already mentioned on 2nd page no for TISEO parts.

I'm hoping to see my order by the end of next week.

Hey All,

 

Not being a particularly knowledgeable F-4 guy, what are the differences between an early and late production F-4E?  I surmise that the late production F-4E is on the way from ZM, yes?

Curt there is a ton of info in this ARC thread alone. Read through it and if you can't find it here, there are others. Plenty of Phantom Pholloers here that might also give a hand with some links too.

 

I know I'm not helping you here much, but this aircraft has such a fan following that you'll probably find more info out there (easy too) than any other US Jet Fighter.
