Great to have you on board guys! 👍 It's been a while between packing, traveling, waiting for my stuff to arrive and finally unpacking that I was touching plastic and being active on Scalemates. I had one of those kits packed up, but couldn't resist the urge to buy one while rummaging around shops here. I didn't commit on buying tools though as I knew those would come in eventually. So, at my workplace I started clipping parts and dryfitting and glued all stuff that had to be glued anyway. The fit is awesome! Every part literally falls into place for now. More pictures to follow from my work-workbence later this week.

Another Tamiya, great 🙂
I tried shaking my box a few times, model did not yet self-assemble. Caveat emptor!!

While I know its an excellent kit, the Academy is superb as well and half the cost. I just cant abide paying twice the amount for this. Especially since its a B, and not really a big interest to me.

That being said, cant wait to see what you do with it. 🙂

Well Sergej, you have to add cement before shaking..... You know that, right? 😄

You're absolutely right Donald! There is nothing wrong with the Academy kit, but neither is with the Tamiya one. 😉 I just wanted to spoil myself, that's all. The Academy kits needs a bit of attention in places, but I just wanted to toss some cement in a box, shake it and have an F-4B....N in this case. 😉

I'll take my seat. !!! And beware the Tamiya decals, they really ARE THICK and don't like settling very well… best off obtaining some aftermarket. No point cost cutting on this kit. Don't ask how I know !!

Ah, I see you have. 😂😂😂

I'm in, good luck with the build. Tamiya engineered it well as I saw in some (video)builds.

Hi David, yes I'm trying my luck on Caracal's Cartograf decals instead. 😉
Welcome Daniel, Murad and Mark. I follow Matt McDougal's build closely on Doog's models and have some nice hints at how he tackles this kit. A lot of awesome engineering with only some little tidbits to watch out for.
