Tamiya 1/32 F-4EJ Phantom
By Niels Sørensen
This is a JASDF F-4EJ Kai of the 3rd Wing, 8 Squadron "Black Panthers" based at Misawa Air Base. It is painted in the 50th Anniversary markings of the 3rd Wing in 2007.
It is based on the Tamiya F-4EJ kit with some additional goodies:
- Kopecky Rear end and exhaust
- Sparkit Ejection Seats
- Wolfpack F-4EJ Kai ("Kai" is the Japanese word "Modified") conversion set
- DN Model Paint Masks
- DXM Decal set
It was painted using a combination of Mr. Hobby paints and MRP.
This was part of the Turning Japanese Group Build and here is my thread for more info on the build.
This was a really fun model to build and I am a bit sad to finish it. Luckily, there are many cool JASDF aircraft out there waiting to be built!
