One of the most recognizable fighters in history, the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II has been an incredibly versatile and effective aircraft for numerous national militaries around the world, first introduced in late 1960 with the U.S. Navy. Amazingly still in operational service after more than a half century, the Phantom II performs countless roles including interceptor, reconnaissance, fighter-bomber, and "Wild Weasel" radar destroyer duties. The aircraft saw extensive use for the U.S. military during the Vietnam War, serving as the principal air superiority fighter, holding the distinction of being the last 20th century warbird to achieve "ace" status.
This 1/72 scale, die cast replica of an F-4E — a Hobby Master replica of a warbird flying with the 32nd TFS "Wolfhounds" in 1978 — features realistic panel lines, an opening canopy, a well-equipped cockpit, two removable pilot figures, detailed turbofan engines, full weapons complement, authentic markings, optional-position landing gear, and a display stand. Measures approximately 10½" long with a 6¼" wingspan.
