Hello there !
ESCI is not the best Phantom in 1/48 but that's only E version that I can find, at the moment. Complete scratch-building in cockpit is required in order to look decent, resin replacement is not an option for now. Cheap copy seats made from resin and wheel bays will do the job.
Camouflage is not specified yet, SEA or Aegean blue is in the game for sure, but... I think SEA will win...
Is there any good walkaround of HAF F-4E ? I'll post more progress soon.
