Recommended Posts

Extreme appreciation to Academy and their USA distributor Model Rectifier Corporation for sending out this new version of their venerable F-4B/N kit, and the usual cheerleading wave of thanks to the IPMS USA leadership for sending it to me. 

This kit sat a while in the link.  I've built two of the Academy F-4's, a "B" and a "J", and had impressive results from even MY feeble modeling skills.  Kits like this take a bit of time to construct, but are well worth it in the end.

What's in the box are the same parts from the previous Academy Rhinos, with the exception of single color gray plastic, with no white, black, and gray parts.  Yes, also clear parts.  The decal sheet is new, for two plain-Jane gull gray over white F-4B's from the Vietnam era for VMFA 531, The "Gray Ghosts".  The last version is the overall Light Gull Gray scheme with a Dark blue fin and markings.  Yep, I went for some original color!
