I'll try my best to complete 1 phantom..

I'll most probably build a machine from one of the squadrons belonging to Her Majestry's Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm...

f-4dablemodels - February 15, 2012 04:28 PM (GMT)
Thanks for taking this on, Eng Hui!

Apologies to all for the slightly delayed launch.

Have been inundated with work.

druid_99 - March 12, 2012 04:33 AM (GMT)
Guys, I have the ESCI 1/48 F-4 C/D Phantom (thanks to Landyshah) but no decal. Any suggestions on aftermarket decals that I can use for the kit? I would like suggestions on any brand of decal manufacturers that I can use for the kit. Suggestions on the pilot and wizzo office aftermarket are welcomed as well... :D

Thanks in advance. :)

enghui - March 12, 2012 05:30 AM (GMT)
Perhaps try Hobby HQ for the decals.Sorry that's the best I can do.

f-4dablemodels - March 12, 2012 05:46 AM (GMT)
Musang,

You should be able to get the Hi-Decal Line F-4E/RF-4E decal sheet from Hobby HQ if this is suitable for you?

Druid,

F-4C/D decal sheets seem to be pretty hard to come by these days.

Here is one for the F-4D that is available at Hobby HQ:

Nevermind, will try to sourced it online.

Musang,

You're right of course.

However, Israeli RF-4E's were allocated in such a way that every F-4E squadron had one (or two) RF-4E's on strength.

The HDL sheet has the various squadron markings, so it is technically feasible to mix and match the tail numbers according to photographic references, or according to the ones provided in the Hasegawa kit.

druid_99 - March 12, 2012 08:21 AM (GMT)
Thanks Jason. I did came across the decal last few weeks but that was before I got the Phantom. Hope it's still there when I visit HHQ sometime this week. :)

As far as I know, there's ample stock in the country.

Unfortunately, there are no SEA camo schemes in this sheet.

The sheet only includes:

- the Iranian scheme (2 jets),
- the Euro 1 scheme (2 jets),
- the non-standard 'Cloud' scheme used by a Texas-based AFRES unit which later transferred their jets to the Koreans, and
- another non-standard 3-tone grey scheme used by a Florida-based AFRES unit.

Kuman,

The sheet shown only covers the F-4D model.

Hi-Decal did another sheet which covers the F-4E, and includes markings for Iranian jets, Korean jets and a solitary US AFRES jet.

That's probably what you are looking for, and it is available at Hobby HQ.
