First Look

Here is an excellent detail set for your Tamiya 1/32 F-4B or F-4J kit. This is a thorough airframe stencil set designed for the high-visibility paint schemes and includes five pages of diagrams and an addendum to show you where each of those stencils is placed. The instructions show you where F-4B and F-4J-specific markings are applied.

This set will compliment the kit's decals as well as provide that extra visual detail to one of the other F-4B/J specialty sets also released by AOA decals. Converting your Tamiya F-4B to an F-4N or perhaps the F-4J to an F-4S? These stencils will also work with those subjects as they appeared early in their service before they transitioned to the low-visibility paint schemes. Just note that this set doesn't include specific stencils unique to the F-4N or F-4S, but the majority of the stencils are common to all USN/USMC high-visibility F-4s.
