Spotlight Review

 
"Old mould, but not bad. Little rough"
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
This is a different version of the phantom II, as it has fixed slats on the dihedral part of the wing, and it was the first version to have a cannon fixed to the fuselage. It is not as finelly detailed as one may hope, but it can become interesting. I've installed extra weapons on mine, and gave it a nice look. Not very troublesome to build, but require some sanding and filling. Appart from that, go ahead and give it a try!

"good not great"
pamason (Entiat, WA)
This is a good plane but not a great one. The parts fit well but some sanding is needed there is some detale but much. The canopy is only in down setting but with some work the landing gear can be up or down. The inst art good but show some parts that are not in the kit. The decals are good and are easy to use. But the one down side is the lack of arment. The f-4e was a fighter bomber and much could be carred on the plane there only tanks and four missiles. But a good plane for all.

 
"F-4E"
mlaponte
This was one of the first few jets I have built since restarting the hobby. I really took my time with it. It did not require much sanding and filing. I did have to trim the rear seat. It was hitting the canopy. The lack of underwing stores was bothersome. The directions showed Falcon missles being installed, but the kit did not come with them. I used the 5 underwing fuel tanks. It was a good kit to build. The price point is low enough to make it worthwhile trying new things.

 
"Vintage kit features good detail but raised panel lines"
james.white (Portland, Oregon, USA)
Other reviewers have pointed out that this old 1985 beauty has its quirks. I had to do significant putty work at the jet intakes and on the nose. The sanding combined with the raised panel lines made it impossible for someone of my limited skills to restore the detail. Having said all that, the fit was otherwise very good and the results were striking. I would like to have seen more detail in the exhaust nozzles, and their fit onto the fuselage required some serious effort due to the misalignment of the fuselage top/bottom (more sanding). 2-color instructions were clear and sufficiently detailed. If you are interested in my approach to the kit, I posted a video of my build at https://youtu.be/qyuuG6c0ERI
