@ Palo M, Zoukei Mura until now only has the thick wing versions. This Tamiya F-4B (as the F-4N) has the thinner main wheels and thus the thin original wing. This is therefore not a replacement for the ZM kit but more a parallel kit. :)

Well thank you Patrick, that sounds like another 60 [insert local currency] out of my wallet! :) I have a soft spot for US navy / marines aircraft in the high-vis scheme from 60s - 70s, so the F-4B will fill that well. Can't say I find the F-4 beautiful, but it was definitely an important aircraft of its era.

Before I get this into the stash, I have to get the Tamicat ;)

@ Palo M, there's a reason it'c called 'Double Ugly'. :D
@ Maciej, obviously.......

Probably will be a very nice kit. But the ZM standard already appears to be very high, according to trusted sources like youtube & co...

If I were to build one, I´d go for one of the gorgeous JSDAF "Goodbye Phantom" schemes - like the last one in the ZM line-up... May still happen in the early 2030´s :D

Hi Slavo! Yes, I can fully agree on ZM having a really high standard as I have their F-4S in my stash and a club member built the F-4D and it looked great! Thing is though, that ZM doesn't have an F-4B or F-4N in their line-up yet. Since Tamiya put in an F-4B and knowing Tamiya's quality, I'm more than thrilled right now. If ZM were to bring out an F-4B, then it would be a very hard comparison between the two, but for now I would pick up that Tamiya F-4B blindly. :) I'm hoping though that either one of those companies would bring out a soft wing late F-4E/F/G. Fingers crossed for that! ;) But aren't these glorious times to be a modeler? :D

Those late E/F/G are something missing in this scale, so somebody will release it sooner or later.

I'm also looking forward to the late E and G version.

Anyhow a few days ago I got the new early E from ZM. Awesome looking kit a lot of details and possibilities to show it at the end of the day. The decal sheet looks also very impressive there are more than 400 decals to apply on this one :)!
In case that there is only one decal option you will have to apply them all :)...

I love this plane and I don't know really why but hey yes there are great times for this hobby and I believe once this one is available I put it into my stash :).

weird pick from tamiya i'll be honest
the market have no less than three F-4Bs right now -
hasegawa old yet decent phantoms, academy excellent and very affordable phantoms and ZM with their insanely detailed (and priced) phantoms
so im not sure where tamiya going to fall in here, and how they expect to top the other competition

Öhm ... Did you build Tamiya's F-14s in 48nd scale? This is a dream!

It will be a clear winner for all modelers who apreciate an easy aproach on building without having to worry much about sanding and filing for sure. Also bear in mind that tamiya can compete and deliver the global market. They know exactly what they are doing. Same thing with their F-14s and BF109s (which was an awesome flawless build) in the same scale - you just have have got to keep beeing competitive.

Seeing how there isn't any trace of seamlines I guess it is Tamicat quality. So it will be a no brainer to get one of those.

Well none of the three F-4Bs will do any money for Tamiya right?
Hasegawa kits are really hard to get / Academy is ok, but probably will lose against the Tamiya kit and ZM has NO! F-4B.

So its a great choice from Tamiya, because Phantoms will always be a good seller.

this is big T. Big T doesn't care about the market, it will release whatever it will release and steamroll over anything with great ease, case in point the 48 scale tomcats.

and tbh they will probably milk this puppy iaw the letters of the phantom alphabet from b all the way to j and beyond quite easily and gracefully knowing their level of engineering i am damn sure they will take a modular approach to kit enabling them to produce multiple variants without the causing slightest grief to the modeller. :) that being said, why they didn't do this to f-16 variants, i really wonder.

now what i am awaiting is if and when tamiya will scale their tomcat and this phantom to 32nd. eventho they are available in 32nd scale already, due to their age they leave much to be desired compared to their recent subjects.... now that'll be the day.

A new F-14 from Tamiya would be awesome.
The Phantoms are not that necessary, their 32th kits are still awesomew
27. January, 14:11
i do confess i havn't built their tomcat (yet!), im just sharing my thoughts about it
