Sincere appreciation to Eduard for providing yet another review item, and to the IPMS USA reviewer corps leaders for sending it to me!
This set continues Eduard’s effort to provide modelers with previously unavailable, well detailed resin sets. Forty-one resin parts, and photoetch - both color and unpainted, make up this set. You can assemble one F-4J cockpit with late model Mark IV Martin Baker Ejection seats.
F-4’s are the poverbial dog’s breakfast when it comes to cockpit configuration. All Naval aviation varieties have the provision for the aerial refueling probe taking up the upper starboard side of the radar navigator (GIB or “Guy in Back”) compartment, and therefore have lots of cobbled-together configurations as to black boxes, communication gear, controls, etc. The front pit is more common, but still varies from bureau number to bureau number, and upgrade to upgrade. I would never attempt to figure out what is on any given F-4B or J at any given time. We won’t address the USAF and foreign versions.
