Academy 1/48 Phantom decals and instruction booklet - Sorted!


Recommended Posts

I just got the Academy 1/48 F-4J phantom Jolly Rogers kit for Christmas and as grateful as I am for it, I’m not a Jolly Rogers fan.

 

So as both kits are same and have all the parts to make any Naval phantom, I’d like to swap the decals and instruction booklet from this kit:

...in preference for the decals and instruction booklet from this kit:

Send me a PM if interested in this swap.

Are you sure both kits have the same parts?  The sprue with the wings should be different since the B/N has the thin, flat wing, and the J has the bulged wing.  Scalemates shows that the wing sprues are different.

 

The B/N kit has the B and E wing sprues

The J kit has the C and D wing sprues

Oops well spotted but it’s not something I’m concerned about.  Just not a fan of Jolly Rogers markings although I do have a couple of the Eduard boxing’s of the B kit if I decided to use the thin wings.

Hi Dustin

Thanks for the offer but some one beat you to the post!  A member has donated the entire sheet from his kit.  I just hadn't had chance to update this post to state everything has been sorted.  Thanks again for the offer though.

 

Regards

Andrew
