I have several of the old Monogram F-4s that I want to build. It still in my mind has probably the best Phantom outline of any of the kits. I have several plans to to some in a flying mode and want to spend more time on paint and finish than any super detail. What I do need is a way to take care of the intakes which I feel is the weakest part of the kit. Does anybody have some advice on the best AM intakes I can use?
Hi, Dave -
To my knowledge, no one made aftermarket intakes specifically for the Monogram Phantom kits. It would take a lot of plastic surgery, but you might try using the True Details resin Phantom intakes, made for the Hasegawa F-4's, and modifying them to fit the Monogram kit. The True Details intakes have scribed panel lines, though, as opposed to the raised lines on the Monogram kit.
