I like fighters too. I used to go to Homestead AB and watch the Rhinos take off in full AB. Thats why we all have bought this plane. We may not fly the full size, but we sure can turn and burn these babies. Kick the tire and light the fire and see if this dog will hunt.

Back to our birds, when is someone gonna paint up a SEA AF bird?

Don't forget Cpt Ritchie. Most of his kills were in an F4D

I don't like the foamy "Sidewinders" and rails that came with the kit. I made some replacements on my 3D printer and posted the files at

if anyone is interested.

That looks really good! Do you plan to knock some of the shine off with some Testor's Dullcote, or keep it airshow shiny?

Dullcoat or Semi Gloss would knock down the heavy gatoring that the gloss coat highlights.

Thanks!

I think I’m going to leave it as is. It actually doesn’t look nearly as shiny in person as it does in that last picture. The sun was hitting it really hard at that angle and made it look extra shiny and gatored where i peeled off the old decals.

Plus, I’m really lazy lol.

Gooniac...flew several F-4 flights this weekend and the Afterburner setup is still working great...no issues.
The F-4 is still great at handling the cross-wind landings, its such a great all-around performer...sweet spot for size, motor, and looks!
