Academy F-4B VF-111
By Collin S. August 9, 2017
This kit greatly exemplifies the quality of Academy models. Although somewhat challenging during construction, this kit is highly detailed, and well worth any headache from the sheer number of parts. An oil wash will help bring out the great detail in this plane, as it doesn't lack any inch of detail. The cockpit alone includes many parts integral in accuracy, and the weaponry provided by Academy proves to be as detailed as the rest of the model. However, if you are a beginner who is a perfectionist, this model is probably not for you, as it is hard to achieve the full impression of this aircraft unless you are an advanced modeler. If you are a Moreno intermediate modeler like me, I will say that it provides a unique challenge that will show you what you are or aren't made of. If you do purchase this model then I would recommend certain tools. Some sort of putty or filler will be helpful if you make an error while glueing, regardless, the model does need filler in certain spots. You will benefit from modeling tweezers because they are critical in the decal process, not just with this model, but with any as there are small size decals. Finally, remember that modeling is a hobby, and it should be fun. Best of luck if you do choose this model, and if you don't, make sure to continue modeling.
