F-4E/F/G/EJ Seamless Intakes

Cutting Edge 1/48 F-4E/F/G/EJ Seamless Intakes First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review September 2004 Manufacturer Cutting Edge
Subject F-4E/F/G/EJ Seamless Intakes Scale 1/48
Kit Number CEC48458 Primary Media Resin
Pros Drop-in replacements for kit parts Cons Careful surgery of Monogram fuselage required
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) OOP

First Look

You can see in the photo how the resin intake literally does drop into the Hasegawa fuselage.

F-4E/F/G/EJ Seamless Intakes
  • The resin intake ducts are pre-molded to resin intakes that perfectly replace the kit parts.
  • Replacement splitter plates are included.
  • The inside of the intake and duct are molded in white, making painting optional (or at least easier).
  • The twin J79 engine faces are cast as one part to be installed like a fuselage bulkhead. This makes installation and alignment of the ducts much simpler!

These will be very welcome additions for quarter-scale Phantom Phreaks everywhere. When you see one of these sets installed in the beautiful Hasegawa F-4, the illusion of reality is nicely achieved. If you see one of these parked next to a ‘stock’ F-4 kit on a contest table, the difference will be striking. Recommended!

This is a nicely done enhancement for the Hasegawa kit!

My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
