F-4B/N/S Set

Recommended Posts

Gary, 

 

 

I was wondering if you have any timeline of when you might be releasing any of the Navy subjects especially the F-4S version.

 

 

Thanks

Stanton

Right now the plan for  â€œB†kit is sometime mid -late November, in time for Christmas.   The S may also be this year, as it will be offered as just a slat wing kit, since Aires already makes a beautiful cockpit and all of the other “S†parts come with the “J†kits like antennas, cameras, etc.  I have not done any intensive research on the S as of yet, so if there is something that I need to be aware of that is not covered in my list here, please bring it to my attention.

 

Thanks for your interest.

Hey Bill,

 

Right now it will contain the following:

 

I have decided to make the kit into two parts.  One is the Airframe Conversion set which contains everything that is required for converting the exterior.    The interior will be a separate kit for the cockpit, and I am undescided at this point whether to offer  one comprehensive cockpit kit, or an early “B†and then a late “B/N†kit.   At this point I am leaning toward just one cockpit kit to cover all of them, and have the builder choose.

  • Thin wing kit including the wheel wells, doors, etc of use with the Tamiya landing gear
  • Plain ALQ-126 Plain, APR-24 snub nose, APR-30  ( the signature “B/N†)tail fin caps
  • Tail fin base vent intake splitter
  • Nose cone with  IRST ,  APR-30 hook,  Apr-25 Shoe Horn, ALQ-126
  • AN/ALQ-51/100 ECM small nodes  ;    AN/ALQ-126 ECM of 1 small, 3 large are included in the F-4J Tamiya kits
  • Instructions to remove the slat from the Elevators for modeling the early jets
  • GT Resin J-79 short exhaust
  • Complete instructions on which parts from the Tamiya kit to use to make the correct “B†or “N†cockpit from what is already supplied in the “J†kit
  • Narrow main landing gear wheels/tires

Cockpit kit:

 

 

  • GT Resin MK 5 USN version Ejection seats
  • Detailed WSO left side panel
  • Detailed WSO lower control panel with scope and control stick
  • Early WSO upper instrument panel
  • Shoehorn WSO upper instrument panel
  • Detailed cockpit tub.

 

I may have missed something as this is from memory, so let me know if I have.   I strongly Recommend getting Daco’s F-B/N book, as this is the best source for USN Phantom documentation.

 

Thanks for asking,

 

Gary
