Robert W Martel Just got this from Korea, $39. Looks like super nice kit! Cartograf decals. Vietnam era. SWEET!!!

Rex Yes, that is "Vietnam era", but, just for info, that is not a Vietnam paint scheme. VF-84 didn't deploy to Vietnam after they got the F-4J.

Robert W Martel Thanks Rex, Hmmm, Interesting. They did have one with a camo scheme. Well........I still like it.

Rex Oh, yes, I like it too. I build just about half of my USN models while the aircraft were assigned to the Atlantic Fleet, instead of PACFLT at Vietnam. The camo'd aircraft were the F-4G used by VF-213. Some of which were operated by VF-121 afterwards, and the other survivors converted back into F-4B afterwards.(with minor visual differences from other F-4B) One of those F-4B-then-F-4G then-F-4B again aircraft went on to kill a MiG after re-conversion.

Robert W Martel Ah Ha! Yea I looked at the camo one & I liked it too, but I got this one cheaper $38.99 inc. shipping. That's kinda why I bought it I guess, but I like the look of this one too. Price is always a big factor.
I have the Revell 1/32 Wild Weasel (and it's a great kit too) that I got at HL, but it's pretty BIG, so I thought I'd be better off in 1/48. Even in 48th it's good size, a little easier for me to do. I've traded in several of my HUGE kits for smaller scales, like the B-29 & 17 from 48th to 72nd. Even at that scale they're still not SMALL. I'm limited to work space & doing it all in my bedroom!
I like that a lot of you folks here have that knowledge, keeps me thinking. Glad I joined up!
Thanks for the info Rex, I didn't have a clue! Best Regards.

Rex ahh, and I just realized that you meant USAF by "camo'd version" (I got too fixated on my own area of interest) File that USN F-4G stuff I posted under "interesting, but useless today". You could need it later on, if you build any of the thin winged Phantom versions.
If you have any Phantom questions, there are quite a few on here with Phantom knowledge. I am sure that any of us would help you out if you need some info.

Robert W Martel Ok, now I'm confused. LOL. I guess your right, this one is Navy, the other green camo one, F-4C was Air Force. I had to go back and look again. I'm pretty ignorant to all those details. well....I still have a lot to learn! Actually I like them both, but can't really afford and/or have room for more than one of any particular aircraft. I have just 100 now with this one! I'll never build them all!!
And to top it off all of a sudden I've got bitten by the Aircraft Carrier bug, so I'll be getting those for a while. I'm nearly out of space now! lol.
