    YES!

        the Vietcong in the fields on the flyby was a nice touch. Great choice in music too.. It was like an F4 was on a mission heading north to play with Migs

          So, reverse engineer the Skymaster airframe , mold it in foam , make it a twin 80 or single 90. Offer it in USAF C,D,E models or Navy/Marines in the B or J liveries. Voila !

                  • I've been wanting a nice quality scale F4 in my hangar for over 10 years. Had a 70mm Blue Angel one from Banana years and years ago. Man that thing flew like a brick but I just loved that it was a Phantom.

                    • Need to have the F-4, preferably a D model. And it needs to scale, like you did for the A-10 (and yes, twin 80's). All the smaller planes are blown around the field, so it will need to be on the heavier side. For the Navy guys, a nice gadget would be a retractable hook.

                      If you do decide on the smaller side (like a single 80) then do it up like the Avanti. Less realism would be needed then on the gear as most folks wanting the lesser expensive model. (BTW, I used FW Super Scorpion mains on my F-86 and now I land it lightly - probably a training / fear issue for the pilot). And as an additional ask, when will MRC stock nerf whistles? Makes my A-10 sweet sounding.

                        I am all for the large twin 80mm for the ultimate in scale look and performance! But I do understand the need for a smaller less expensive model.
                        From what I have seen on this forum there seems to be an equal demand for a simple and and an all out large model with all the bells and whistles.
                        So I think there would be enough demand to support two F4 models just like the 70mm and 90mm F-16.

                        The small one could be a single 90mm or twin 70mm
                        The large - Twin 80mm or heck why not just go super scale with twin 90mm! The real F4 actually did have large twin engines.

                          • So the 80mm A-4 finally was announced, ha-ha. I was wondering when someone was going to end this silence of new models on the forums . Now follow that with an F-4 for everyone else .

                                Um.... I may have missed something..... Are we talking a Freewing A-4..... as in " Good morning gentlemen the temperature is 110 degrees HOLYS**T its Viper" A-4?

                                Couldn't find the announcement. ......

                                    Now that would be fine with me. I like the F-4 enough to go with both of them. My main desire is a good handling scale bird that has people stop and look as it flys by.

                                    The single would need most likely be a 70mm while the bigger bird would need to be a twin 80. Like the A-10, while some will want to put 90's in it, twin 80s are fine and keep it scale, so that would be my vote.

                                    My other bird would be a 1700 to 2000 mm B-25 (but then my Dad flew those in WWII) of the 487th (but hey, I would glad paint it to get exactly what I want). Needs to be scale and durable like the FW Avanti and A-10 (can you tell I like them).

                                        • That's why I deleted my comment. I ASSumed the link was the the box that was shown. I went to the link and saw it was not what I assumed so I removed my comment.
