Hasegawa RF-4B model in 1/72 scale
1/72 scale kit of the RF-4B was "limited edition kit" with only 1 set of
decals for a RF-4B of the VMFP-3 MARINE Corps with decals provided
in this kit #Ka-9.
The first RF-4B flew on March 1965 and all went to the US Marine Corps to different units. 46 planes were manufactured. Planes were also used in Vietnam and several updates done during its service life. For example later on the J79-GE-8 engines were replaced by J79-GE-10 engines and new avionics fitted.
RF-4B went to a new squadron, VMFP-3, based at MCAS El Toro in 1975.
This version will be made out of the
kit. The parts are fine with recessed panels and
good parts although there are not many of them.
The decals gave no problems and went on very good after the kit got a gloss base coat of Johnson Future.
