I have built two RCM F-4 (#1076) in the last year. The plans were made by a Pavel Bosak that somehow got messecd up RCM in translations. However this model is nice flying and easy to build (if you have done three or four buildings from plans alone before).
RCM text instructions are incomplete (when compared to the RCJI text)and are totaly lacking in the critical pictures of sub-assemblies. Plus RCM is out of back issues of the F-4 article. You need to get a RCJI back issue for Dec/Jan 1999 from www.Traplet.com
A few notes to help you from my building are: 1) Use Sullivan D-11 saddle tanks installed in fan bay between f-5&6 (you then have the fuel nearer to cg for easier flying and access to the fuel tanks). Need to extend this bay back about 1-3/4'' to accommodate. 2). Do not try to get 5/8"x5/8" maple mounts at LHS. Just make some from maple stock. 3) Plans call for Rohm Air retracts but to use Springair retracts the f-2&3 must be changed for the nose gear. 4) On fuselage formers f-2,-4&-5 laminate from 1/8" lite ply core and 1/64" ply cover on both side with carbon fibre mat or weave. This same lamination is made on the f-8 tail support. This makes for a stronger and lighter critical parts. 5) Ah the beast: The exhaust tube from f-6 to f-7 is the hardest part. I made a hot wire cut styrofoam mold for mine. Then I made two part (top and bottom) kraft (shopping bag grade) paper mache molding (using thinned carpenter glue) that was finshed with carbon mat/weave and expoxy resin. 6) Lightening holes put in the wing ribs and carbon fibre stringers aadded to the wing sheeting. 7) Put a 1/64 ply vertical sheet in the centerline of the nose block (final shape) to keep it correct. 8) Make the cockpit removable so that you can use a starter probe thru f-4.
My F-4 Phantom uses a Dynamax fan, K&B .82, Mac pipe, BVM fairings on fan unit and is guided with Airtronics Quantum 8 PCM. I finished mine like the designer and used wet tissue and Aerogloss dope covering. This is nice size stand off scale flyer. Enjoy.
