F-4E 3rd TFW ‘Bataan’
It was the year of 2002, that I built 1/48 shark-mouthed F-4E. Since 2012, I have focused on 1/72 scale only, but have been eager to make this F-4E again in that scale, wearing this sharkmouth that, I believe, is the most handsome of all shark-mouthed F-4s. This is my outcome in 2019, running 17 years.
Hasegawa F-4E kit, Aires cockpit & Nozzle, XMM seamless Intake, Eduard AIM-9J & Mk.82 bombs are adopted. Sharkmouth decal comes from Hasegawa F-4G #00954 kit, Bataan decal from Microscale, and stencils from IsraDecal. As a weekend modeler with 2 kids, I spent 11 months on building this.
I hope you all enjoy!
