Zoukei Mura F-4 short nose re-release, any ideas when?

Recommended Posts

I have read in several places that ZM is planning to re-release the 1:48 short nosed Phantom series, specifically the C/D. Any firm answers as to when?  As a side note I am willing to trade my ZM F-4 J and or S for a C or a D variant.

The Zoukei Mura / Volks website. For the short nosed Phantom’s it says awaiting restock, while the sold out special editions say End Sale. Plus I thought I read it in an old man blog, but can not seem to put my eyes on it at the moment.

Hopefully Tamiya beats them to it 😜

I agree, but I feel that’s at least two years in the future.

I had sent an email to the volksusa people back in early June asking about a restock on the F-4D, and their reply was: 


"Currently, we do not know when the 1/48 F-4D will be restocked.
Due to the limited nature of our products, we may be unable to provide estimated restock dates for items that have sold out.


If we ever receive news from our HQ regarding a rerun for this particular kit and option parts,

we’ll be sure to make an announcement on our Social Media and Email Newsletter."


That might be a standard canned answer, so it's hard to say if they have any intentions to restock any time soon. I agree, I'd love to see Tamiya kit a C/D version, but I'd be perfectly happy to get my hands on the ZM D as well. I'm building the Tamiya B right now, and there's ample evidence that they've left themselves the option to tool them in the future, but we know that might be a crapshoot.
