Cutting Edge 1/48 F-4 Unslotted Stabs






1/48 F-4 Phantom II


Scott Van Aken

Well, the 1/32 crowd got unslotted, unreinforced stabs and now the 1/48 group can have them too. These are for those early Phantoms or perhaps an F-4F kit that comes with the wrong ones. Though the majority of users will incorporate these with their Hasegawa builds, the truth is that they will fit just about any 1/48 Phantom kit I can think of. About the only area one will have to be careful is when removing these from the resin sprue. One will have to take care not to accidentally cut the little pin on the stabs where it fits into the fuselage. If you do slip, using a section of paper clip will fix the goof.

As usual with Cutting Edge, the parts are superbly molded and should remove easily from the resin pour stubs. The result will be something a bit different from the norm.
