Oh No….Not Another One..!! (addendum)
This is the old (’98) Revell boxing of “Showtime 100” F-4J Mig Ace in 48th scale (which is obviously not the scheme I chose to do). This is quite a difference from the Z-M kits. The fuselage halves were were one solid piece – nose cone, tail hook, etc…all molded into one (no extra parts, Bernard)). Really not many parts on the sprues at all. The decals and bomb racks/bombs are all from the spares box (I think). And I still have 3 F-4’s left! Two in 32nd and one more in 48th. What’s a fella to do when he’s got “Phantomitis”…? 🙂
And I see I didn’t wait long enough for the front canopy to set good (it’s starting to close on it’s own)….oh well, an easy fix.
EDIT: since I first posted this a little while ago, I was gonna start on my last 48th scale F-4.
I say ‘was’, because when I opened the box and started looking at the sprues, it’s painfully obvious what a piece of c**p it is. The [Revell] 1987 release of the Phantom with Chuck Yeager’s endorsement on the box art (kit #4563). OMG, I don’t think I could even use anything in there for spare parts….it’s that bad! I immediately opened one of Tamiya’s 32nd scale kits and I was back in my comfort zone. What a difference! Like night & day.
Anybody want a terrible kit of an F-4? Lemme know. I’ll send it to ya. Free.
