Introduced in late 1960 with the U.S. Navy, the F-4 Phantom II has been an incredibly versatile and effective aircraft for numerous national militaries around the world. Amazingly still in operational service after more than a half century, the F-4 — while retired in the United States — continues to perform countless roles including interceptor, reconnaissance, fighter-bomber, and "Wild Weasel" radar destroyer. The aircraft saw extensive use with U.S. forces in Vietnam, serving as the principal air superiority fighter, holding the distinction of being the last 20th century warbird to achieve "ace" status. More than 5,000 units have been manufactured, seeing action in more than ten countries.
This 1/72 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model — an authentic reproduction of an F-4J as it appeared with the VMFA-212 "Lancers" in the 1970s — features engraved panel lines, detailed afterburning exhaust nozzles, an opening canopy, a well-equipped cockpit (with detailed instrumentation and two removable crew figures), full weapons complement, optional-position landing gear, authentic USMC markings, and a mid-flight display stand. Measures approximately 10½" long with a 6½" wingspan.
