Another quick addition to the lovely new Tamiya 1/48th scale F-4B is this decal set which includes decals to recreate the numerous numbers and cautions found on the aircraft's access doors. Also included are decals to recreate yellow canopy rain seals, as well as adding details to engine nozzles.
Inside the package, there is a large foldout sheet with large enough print to add all the appropriate decals for the door markings. What I found nice is the size of the instructions which open to 10” x 14” and are dual sided; top on one side and bottom on the other. Also included in this set are additional markings for the F-4J. The instructions are color coded with black being both B and J versions; Red is specific for the B version and Green is specific for J versions only. And did I mention they are big enough to actually read!
Also included in the set are canopy seals which can be added. Lastly, exhaust details (the back parts between the petals on the exhausts) are included as decals.
The decal sheet is small but contains 190 small decals for labeling the Phantom. They are small and professionally printed.
This is a great enhancement and will give your Phantom that busy look and take it up a notch. Recommended.
My thanks to Tamiya and IPMS/USA for the chance to review this item.
