New Academy 1:48 F-4B Phantom
Yes, you are reading right. There’s a new treat to us from Academy Models in the shape of an all new tooled F-4B Phantom. One thing you can notice on the pictures below is the ”one piece” fuselage. Judging by the tooling pictures, this is a similar approach to Tamiya’s 1/32 Phantom featured here last year.
I’m not surprised at all to see this model kit sporting Cartograf decals and somehow I have the hunch that it will be priced at a realistic price. Time only will tell. The release date is set to the 3rd quarter of 2012 which if true, it is just around the corner. The waiting game is on again, I look forward to getting one of these.
If you have news, pictures or other new model kit releases, help me spread the word. Post them below or send them in. Due credit will be given if you want to ;o)
