Agreed that's a good price, the downside is of course the original kit needs a lot more than £50 spent on it to bring it up to something approaching current standards  , (New accurate pit, intakes, wheel bays and a new nose )

Well, with all due respect, it does not actually NEED anything extra spent on it.!!

That's a matter of choice for the modeller😉😊.

 

I can work with what I'm given! I'm a firm believer in the TLAR (That Looks About Right) principle of modelling!

John  I agree to a certain extent , BUT....

 

Revell F-4 Tweak list

 

That's a LOT wrong , and having built 9 Tamiya F-4s over the years the issues with the Revell are just glaring to me  - but each to his own!

Fair enough 👍!

Well, I haven't built a single Tamiya F-4. Completely unaffordable, like every other 1/32 Tamiya kit.

I can get two of these for the cost of one Tamiya.

Besides, the finished article cannot be mistaken for anything other than a Phantom!! 😉😊

Works for me!

The Tamiya Phantoms are not perfect by any means, but I suspect that most people who buy the Revell Phantom will not be aware or care of it short comings and will build it as it comes out of the box and enjoy it. That list of corrections has been around for sometime and is nothing new and some of it really picky. As a matter of interest I have several of both makes as well as the old 1/32 Revell Phantom made in to late 60's which some people back then made into reasonable example which is what modelling is all about? There are several on ebay at the moment and are priced at more than some of the Tamiya ones.
