F-4S Phantom II

by Jürgen Jaacks



Revell-Monogram's 1/48 scale F-4J Phantom II is available online from Squadron.com




This model started out life some 10 years ago as a Monogram 1/48 scale F-4J Phantom II.

I modified it at that time with Italeri F-4 E/F outer wings and by that (and some other things), converted it to a F-4 S.



Last summer I took that old model with silvering decals etc. and thought "throw it away or refurbish it ". I decided for refurbishing.

I rescribed the lines, a first for me, added a selfmade infrared sensor under the nose, added Paragon inner slats and sanded away some humps and bumps not present on this highly modified J. For reference I used several pictures in various Phantom books.

The masking almost killed my motivation, but the model survived...

I used the old Superscale Decals, which are not 100% correct, i.e. the bird on the nose is far too big and not outlined in red, but besides the Hasegawa decal, which is as wrong, there is nothing else available.
