The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom was the principal multi-role aircraft for the US Military for over twenty years. The F-4E variant was an improved version of the C and D with an elongated nose and compact radar. These two things made it possible to install a 20 mm M61A1 6 barrel Vulcan gun pod in the nose. The F-4E was the most produced variant with 1,387 aircraft being made over its twelve year production run. The E also equipped more air forces than any other variant of the Phantom. The RF-4E variant was an unarmed reconnaissance version for export only. But, it was retrofitted to carry weapons by most customers.
Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
