1/72 F-4EJ Kai Phantom II

1/72 F-4EJ Kai Phantom II

Custom-built for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force.

After much consideration, Japan chose the McDonnell-Douglas F-4 Phantom II to be the country's newest fighter in November 1968. In fact, Japan was one of the very few non-U.S. countries that could produce Phantom IIs under license. Built by Mitsubishi®, the subsequent F-4EJ Kai upgrade was delivered to the JASDF in November 1989. It featured updated electronics, including an improved central computer, AN/APG-66J pulse Doppler radar and the J/APR-6 homing and warning system. Many were also equipped with ASM-1 or ASM-2 anti-ship missiles mounted underneath the aircraft's wings.

Decal Options:

  1. JASDF 83rd AG 302nd SQ., Code: 414, Naha A.B.
  2. JASDF 6th AW 306th SQ., Code: 416, Komatsu A.B.
  3. JASDF 5th AW 301st SQ., Code 417, Nyutabaru A.B.
