The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engined, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor fighter/fighter-bomber. First entering service in 1960, the Phantom continued to form a major part of U.S. military air power throughout the 1970s and 1980s, being gradually replaced by more modern aircraft such as the F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon in the U.S. Air Force; the F-14 Tomcat and F/A-18 Hornet in the U.S. Navy; and the F/A-18 in the U.S. Marine Corps. It remained in use by the U.S. in the reconnaissance and Wild Weasel roles in the 1991 Gulf War, finally leaving service in 1996.

Eduard Brassin wheels for F-4 1/48

This month I have received two new Eduard Brassin products:

648014 F-4 J/N wheels 1/48 http://www.eduard.cz/products/card.php?id_product=6673

648015 F-4 S wheels 1/48 http://www.eduard.cz/products/card.php?id_product=6674

Both sets come packed in beautiful Eduard blister packs and they include:

  • 4 super-detailed resin wheels
  • Includes 6 brakes as bonus!
  • Photo-etched details
  • Express mask

Wheels are beautifully molded in resin and with outstanding level of details. Small photo-etched fret contains brake installations and they are spot-on. Small masks are also provided for precise painting the wheels. These wheels look great and add more realistic look to Hasegawa F-4 kit.

New Eduard Brassin line has truly established itself among modeling community as the best combination of resin and photo-etched parts and masks for precise painting available on the market. These products are highly recommended!
