Alexander Wallgren I got this kit dirt cheap as well. Bought the True Details Ejection Seats. Does anyone know what interior would work with this kit in terms of aftermarket panels? Listed above is Zoukei-Mura. Just for shits and giggles I'm going to spend some time turning this into something nice. I haven't checked to see if the connecting part between the canopies is there. Guess I better do that first. Anyway, if anyone knows what PE pannel would work on this (i've checked all Italeri products and nothing) would you be able to give me a heads up. Enjoying this site so far, amazing resource.
Alexander Wallgren Thank you very much, sir. I'm going to get one and do some custom fitting. Thanks a million!

Hans Robben I built this kit long ago and it is nice but lacking details in some areas, including the cockpit. As far as I know there are no aftermarket cockpits for the ESCI Phantoms. I see you have a Hasegawa F4J in your stash and a Black Box F4J cockpit. Try using the Hasegawa cockpit parts for your ESCI F4B/J. The one Holger suggested is for an Airforce version and that is very different than the Navy cockpit.

Alexander Wallgren Great idea. I was thinking of making whatever cuts and modicifations to an existing resin cockpit and retrofitting. I may just put a better cockpit in, though historically incorrect, for the sake of better detail. The idea of putting water slide decals on the panel just doesn't do it for me. Thank you guys very much. This website is an invaluable asset for gathering good intel from other modelers. Even if I have to burn some money to find out what works, I'm gonna do it. Perhaps fitting a resin cockpit and adding Eduard panel details. Now that I'm retired, I have nothing but time. Thanks fellas.
Modified mine with home-made slats and flaps. [img2]
This kit is an F-4J - deffo not and F-4B. Has thick wing.

Calvin Gifford Nice - you even used the kit decals! I got this same kit off Ebay for cheap because it was started & the decals were junk. I have a spare Academy F-4J "Jolly Rogers" sheet I am going to use, along with a BUNCH of leftover Monogram, Hasegawa and Academy bits (cockpit, cans, wheels, bombs & missiles, ect.)

Tim Mansfield I can't find the build thread, but the decals were rubbish.
I self modified this kit to droop the slats and flaps.
Not the greatest kit, cost me £5, so not a massive loss if the surgery ruined it.

Calvin Gifford Ah - OK! I changed my mind about the 'Jolly Roger' scheme, only because I realized I had two sheets of Microscale's 48-871 "White Bunny" F-4J markings!
Gary Edwards So I got this kit for a really good price on a sale table (for $ . After I thoroughly inventoried the parts, I found it was missing the clear part between the front and back seats. I guess I know why I got is so cheap. Anyone have this old kit that they are using as a parts kit? I could sure use the part. TIA
