I use the eduard F-4 pe sets for the Hasegawa F-4's on all my Phanthom models. Hasegawa, Esci, Monogram, Revell etc. I have not found one yet that it did not work on.

Thanks for that bit of info! What I've done so far is replace the rear IP with one from (I *think*) a Hasegawa kit and the front IP with one from an Academy F-4D. I will be replacing the rear consoles with some leftover Academy D ones and what I was planning on doing for the front consoles was photocopying the Eduard PE ones and just printing them out and gluing them on! LOL Cheating, I know, but I want to save the actually PE sets for my Hasegawa builds. ;-D

BTW, I found out from a friend of mine that has done literally hundreds of Phantom builds that I don't need to worry about putting weight in the nose of ANY F-4. So I will be saving the metal Aeroclub seats and installing some leftover Hasegawa bang chairs.

I have never had one be a tail sitter. Cool idea on copying the pe, never thought of that. It would save me a lot. I just bought an aeroclub MK 9 bang seat for mt jaguar, first one I have ever bought, and was the only MK9 I could find.

Not cheap but if you get two from them and maybe some other seats you can spread the S&H out:

Thanks Calvin. I forgot all about NeoMega. I have ordered stuff from them before, cockpits for my Mirage F-1''s J-37 Viggen and SU-27.
