First Look

Hi-Decal Line has done it again. Here are seven distinctive F-4E/RF-4C Phantom IIs to choose from with RoKAF, IIAF, IRIAF, and USAF Reserve examples. The seven aircraft covered in this sheet are:

Hi-Decal Line Hi-Decal Line

  • F-4E, 67-0392, 457 TFS/301 TFW/USAFR, Carswell AFB, TX, 1989
  • F-4E, 71-1121, 3-6658, 11 TFS, IIAF, TFB.1 Mehrabad, 1978
  • F-4E, 73-1547, 3-6645, 61 TFW, IRIAF, TFB.6 Bushehr, 1980

  • F-4E, 68-0421, 156 TFS/10 TFW, RoKAF, Suwon AB, 1998

These markings will definitely set your favorite 1/48 F-4E/RF-4C kit apart from the usual decal subjects! I wish this set were available in 1/32 for the Tamiya kit! This set is also available in 1/72 as 72057.

Hi-Decal Line are available from many online retailers.

My sincere thanks to Hi-Decal Line for this review sample!
