Zoukei-Mura F-4EJ Kai Phantom II Phantom Forever 2020


Recommended Posts

Hi to all

I did not get the chance to order the Zoukei-Mura F-4EJ Kai Phantom II Phantom Forever 2020.

Will they run another production batch in the future?

Did they announce anything ?

 

Thanks and stay safe!

I believe the only kits released so far are for the pre sale release.  I ordered one and it was supposed to arrive a bit sooner than the general release shipped direct from Japan and includes a smal commemorative item.  It arrived two weeks ago.  I believe a full general release will happen soon.  Great kit.

Picked one up at Spruebros. Anyone know the difference between the RF-4EJ and the regular F-4ej?


The RF-4EJ (as opposed to the recon nose RF-4E) is just an gun nosed F-4EJ that can carry a large recon pod on the centerline pylon.  There may be some cockpit differences for controls for the pod, but I haven’t seen any obvious external differences (other than the pod when carried).  I’ve seen both Kai and non-Kai RF-4EJs

Attached shows the changes FineMolds is incorporating into their 1/72 F-4EJKai kit to produce the RF-4EJ (use Chrome translate or google Translate). Note that the radome is pre-Kai (old radar), and small changes to the gun cover around the vents (gun remains in the nose). The cockpit changes are also shown.
