Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

McDonnell Douglas RF-4E Phantom II – “488”, Israeli Air Force, 119 Squadron "Bat"

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9.75".  Wingspan: 6.25"

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) received RF-4E Phantom II ex-USAF 69-7594 c/n 4080 as part of Operation Peace Echo I with aircraft delivery starting in 1969. This aircraft was with the 119th Squadron, originally as “198” but in 1976, when the new F-4E(S) arrived, it was re-registered as “488”. In 1976 the 119th transferred its RF-4Es to the 69th Squadron “The Hammers”.

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.

  • Realistic panel lines
