Kit Reviews
Fujimi F-4K/M/FG1/FGR2
The Fujimi range of F-4's used to be the best until the Hasegawa late tool came out. Because Fujimi is the only brand to offer the Spey engined variants, it is the most complete range of F-4's. The Spey variant has separate auxiliary intakes on fuselage sides as per the real thing. For ordnance it has 4 AIM-7E Sparrows, 4 AIM-9E Sidewinders, 2 good wing drop tanks, an SUU-23A centerline gun pod, and a centreline drop tank. The centreline tank is inaccurate because it features a parallel constant cross section not appropriate to UK F-4's, and it is too large to be an F-15 item. The kit also features an optional extended front oleo, the deepest main wheel wells of all the brands, optional 4 piece or single piece canopies, raised cockpit detail, acceptable detail on undercarriage doors, and has a slotted tailplane. The join at the outer wing panels has been engineered in such a way that the wing hinges are correctly portrayed as one-piece components, and is the only kit of the three brands reviewed here to do so.

Even though this kit is not quite as accurate as the Hasegawa kit, it has very pleasing lines, and is more accurate than the Revell toolling in the areas of the canopy, nose, fin cap, and rear empenage. Compared to Detail & Scale & Aerofax Minigraph drawings, the fuselage length may be undersize, but judgement on this is reserved until more precise drawings are obtained. The Spey fuselage width does not seem to cater for mainwheel accomodation in the wheel wells, the fuselage spine has a slight longitudinal bulge when viewed from front-on, and the fin is a little too thick.

Hasegawa late tool
A very complete tooling, it caters comprehensively for all the US engined variants. Subtle details are rendered correctly: it has the most accurate rear empenage, well rendered fin tip, and the forward missile troughs have the correct rounded rear end, whereas the other brands finish more abruptly. It has the most accurate canopy of all the brands with separate canopy pieces. F-4E tooling has early & late styles of gun muzzle, TISEO, and the option of slatted wings. Overlapping panelling on the rear efflux is portayed more subtley than the Revell tooling but is still slightly overscale. The kit includes original teardrop & F-15 style centreline tanks, but no missiles. There are some drawbacks: no raised cockpit detail, and the wing drop tanks and original centreline tank is inaccurate. The wing tanks are tapered where there should be a constant cross section, and the centreline tank has a clumbsy curve line to it. Main wheel wells are too shallow, fin fuel dump vent is indistinct, the upward curve on the leading edge of the tailplane is too pronounced, and the panel lines on the tanks and pylons are a little heavy. A small omission is the lack of a raised teardrop panel at the centreline pylon attachment point,which was only noticed because the Revell kit does include this. Wing join line goes right through wing hinge fairing, compromising what should be a single component. Compared to the Detail & Scale drawings the fuselage length is undersize, but again, judgement is reserved for the time being.

It is very important not to confuse the late tooling of F-4E's and F-4EJ's with Hasegawa's old generation tooling which is substantially inferior. The old tooling can easily be recognised by raised panel lines, a single piece canopy, a good deal


less parts in the box, and ironically, more accurate drop tanks. For some bizarre reason Hasegawa still produces this old tool. Some known catalogue nos of this old tool are listed above. If you happen to stumble across one of these old tool kits at a garage sale for a couple of bucks, get it for the drop tanks, and use the rest of the parts to practise your airbrushing on. Hasegawa also produced a kit of the F-4K/M at one time, but it was substantially inferior to the Fujimi kit.

Revell F-4F
The most positive aspect of this tooling is that small details have been rendered particularly well; it is noticeably superior to the other brands. An example is the beautifully rendered fin fuel dump vent, which makes the other brands look decidedly crude. It has superior rivet detail, cockpit & undercarriage door detail, weighted tyres, a rendition of the engine front fan blades (the only kit to do so) and very fine Sidewinder launch rails. The tooling is dimensionally accurate compared to drawings published by Detail & Scale, and it is the only tooling to sport the auxiliary intakes underneath the fuselage. The F-4F offers the option of slatted wings. As well as surpassing the Hasegawa tooling in the rendering of fine detail, this kit offers more ordnance: 4 AIM-120 AMRAAM's, 4 AIM-9L Sidewinders, an ALQ-119 ECM pod, an F-15 centreline tank, very good wing drop tanks.

There are weaknesses that let this kit down from what should be the No1 spot. The longitudinal crease that separates the fuselage spine from the engine nacelles continues too far back towards the jet pipes resulting in an overly abrupt change in contour at the rear empenage. The fin tip cap has slight downward taper/rake, the canopy is too flat/shallow, the rear empenage is too slender when viewed from side-on, main wheel wells are too shallow, there is no leading edge slot on the tailplane, and the nose is slightly too slender. The kit tries valliantly to portray the overlapping panelling on the rear efflux but the result is overscale. As on the Hasegawa kit, the wing join line goes right through the wing hinge.

Summary
Overall for accuracy, the later tool Hasegawa kits are still best offering of the F-4 in this scale, although the gap has closed somewhat with the release of the new tool Revell kits. A universal failure is a lack of separate airbrakes, and the lack of subtle 'waisting' or area ruling evident in the pilot's canopy of the real thing. Those who consider accuracy to be critical may wish to try grafting the pertinent parts of a Spey engined Fujimi F-4 and its wing drop tanks onto a Hasegawa US F-4 for the ideal result. Combining the major components and canopy of a Hasegawa F-4 with the smaller parts and ordnance from a Revell kit would produce the ideal J79 engined F-4.

The Monogram tooling is included in the Census because the kit was so highly recommended by the Author of the F-4C/D Detail & Scale book; it possibly does include separate air brakes. I have not personally seen one of these kits 1st hand, so I cannot vouch for its accuracy. For a review of this tooling, go offsite to Modelling Madness.
