Anton, will you be offering the long nose version of the F-4? I'd love to get one in Wild Weasel livery. My dad was with the Wild Weasels before he retired from the USAF.

Sounds good Anton

Thinking about offering a lighting kit with the F4?

Anton, any news on this? Any new pictures? Fuselage joint, engine bay, landing gear, tail, etc.
Are the elevator / fin removable?

Thanks

Had friends at Florida. Are there plans for a top hatch to access the engine. Taking the wing off to access engine is no good. Also it makes it hard to access on/off switch and engine GSU. Also I like to look in hatch during start up to insure no fire has gotten away in engine bay

Love the size though. Just a few changes needed

This looks awesome, Cant wait to see her painted.
Do you perhaps have a picture or two of the full functioning wing with slats.
Thank you once a aging for the assistance with the A 10 Up locks, really works well.

Have a great day

Regards

JB

Looks good, but it would be better if the paint shop would use the correct blue color. Easy to research.

Anton, It's a nice jet. If it's FS 15044 Insignia Blue then it is correct. The paint shop should not need to guess. It should look almost black from some angles. Don't look at color samples on a computer or photos that show faded blue. Gate guard aircraft are rarely painted in proper colors or markings. The attached photo should not be used to match paint, however note even indoors, up close, insignia blue is very dark. It is the colors of the US flag and US star and bar as well. Err on the darker side.
Use IPMS. Oh... and while they are at it get the paint shop to use an accurate US insignia mask. No more free-hand! Lol!

Can't wait to see one at a jet meet near me!

Is this one going to be twin? Would love to see Twin K140 center mounted engines. I am looking forward to flight testing. I am sure I will have to have one.
