F-4EJ Kai - blue scheme decals coming in December

Recommended Posts

DXM has announced via their Facebook page a new decal sheet for sea camo two-tone blue JASDF Phantoms, release in December 2018. 

 

Im already prodding Wolfpack to reissue their conversion set for the EJ Kai. Fingers crossed as this is a plane I’ve been wanting to model for quite a while :coolio:

Don't I wish. I'd eventually like the E, J and C/D, with the E being the most desirable right now.

I so want to do a proper RF-4EJ photo Phantom in that scheme with the Woodpecker on the tail. If only Tamiya had done the decent thing and issued a great 1/32 Photo Phantom kit. 

 

Got Wolfpack bits and Zotz Dragon decals lined up for the gun-toting EJ. It's a much better kit than the F-4E Early Production boxing, with sticky foil "fishplates" doublers for the stabs, a much more accurate rear IP and lovely grey as well as ghastly clear nose parts.

Will be definitely ordering a couple sets of these decals.  Has anyone heard from Wolf Pack on releasing their F-4EJ Kai conversion set again?

I contacted Wolfpack 2 weeks ago about this and no response...

 

So far as converting it goes, you can source the wingtip sensors from an extra set of outer wings of a revell f-4e/f/g (graft onto a hard [non-slatted] wing). Tail sensors look to be easy to add. Ribbing on radome should be easy enough to add, and then the only other external differences are a large spine antenna and larger antenna in the nose gear door. New control panels and HUD will round out the conversion if you’re hellbent on full accuracy.

 

It looks like DXM is going to add the sheets for sale on dec 4 (Tuesday this week) if I read things correctly.

Hi guys, who makes the dry transfers mentioned here? I like using dry transfers, especially for stencils. I've got the Wolfpack conversion and a set of dry transfer JASDF F-4EJ markings would be a great find for me. In the past I have used the verlinden dry transfer aircraft stencils. I like the realism, ease of use and the absence of decal film...

GDW,  the dry transfers you refer to they came out with the first release from Wolf Pack.  They were included with the resin conversion kit #WP32010

Hobby Decal made the dry transfers but I think their blue F4 transfers were not available to buy outside of the original Wolfpack conversion. I won’t be surprised if someone decides to sell their transfers from that set now that decals are coming out, I’d watch eBay in the coming weeks
