Spruebrothers partnership new 1/32 Phantoms?


Recommended Posts

I'm sceptic for Big scale new tool Phantom II. I hope in Academy, but this is a rebox only of Revell kit. Phantom is popular subject but too big and expensive.

Looks like they are going all out on these kits. I wonder who will be doing the tooling. The price I am not concerned about too much. I know it will be high considering what goes into tooling these up and the level of detail they are proposing. My guess is somewhere around $250-300. Of course, just pure speculation at this point.

Help me out folks because I am no Phantom expert.  I count 11 major variants, assuming they will duplicate the Tamiya kits.  Would be so nice to add the British Phantoms to this list, but I would assume they are avoiding those as HK is supposedly working on them.  What do you think?

 

F-4B, F-4C, F-4D, F-4E, F-4G, F-4J, F-4N, F-4S, RF-4B, RF-4C, RF-4E,

I wonder if they picked up where Tanmodel,which apparently is MIA,has stopped.

The most recent message I've had from Baris was back in June. There were a number of reasons the kit production from Tanmodel stopped.

The most important being Baris had a heart attack in January '21. He's on the road to recovery, but it's a long road with more than a few bumps along the way.

I'm sure that everyone on here will wish him well and hope for a complete recovery.

Second reason was the company were contracted to the Turkish Military.

Simply a "F" to be added

Morning @Hobo :hmmm: There was the XF4H-1 prototype. F4H-1F original production, became the F-4A including the USN 'Sageburner' and the USAF 'Skyburner'.

F-4B / RF-4B, F-4C / RF-4C, F-4D, F-4E / F4-EJ (+variants) F-4G, F-4J, F-4K (Royal Navy FG.1), F-4M (RAF FGR.2), F-4N (upgraded -B) F-4S (upgraded -J).

Upshot is, we'll get what we get! Think of it like Christmas, you may THINK you know what your getting but until the wrappings are removed..................

There are no other options.

If they do the SPEY Phantom, they probably do this after the earlier versions (B,N,E,J etc). For the modular approach the whole fuselage needs changing. Practically another design...🤨

It's just a question of priorities... :smile:

Here's hoping they maintain the drive and have access to enough money to make this  venture truly successful.

As successful as Spruebrothers is, I think they will have the capital to invest in such a project. I think where they would need help is in the research, development, and tooling phases. In my opinion, I think this is where the partnership with Phantom Phreaks is beneficial.

The way I see this work is to adopt the approach I see with Jetmads: have people sign up for kits to be issued. That way you have a good view on interest, cost etc.
