F-4EJ Kai - 8th Squadron - "JASDF 50th Anniversary" - Finished


Recommended Posts



What a ride - This was a really fun build and I think it looks pretty cool. I had my own "wow-moment" when I took it off the jig and placed it on the desk by itself.

I will take some better images during the weekend and make an RFI post, so below is just a quick taste of the finished Phantom.. Thanks for following along and all the nice feedback along the way ^_^

WOW that is just unbelievable! what a sharp looking bird. The flat coat seems to have made the graphics pop even more. Crazy good :thumbsup:

I want one! That is such a cool looking model. 

I’ve been looking at the other JASDF Phantom specials.

I’m blown away with this one!  I’ve got the Kai conversion and the Panther blue paints in standby to build it one day. But man, that yellow..if I can get brave enough, might have to take a go at this myself. 


Thanks guys - please check out the Hi-Res pictures in the "Ready For Inspection" forum

Wow, amazing build and super clean finish! Which brand of flat varnish are you using?

Hi Andy


Thanks for the nice words. I always use MRP-127 Super Clear Flat, sprayed straight from the bottle


There are some much nicer images of the finished model here: Finished Build
