Just bought this F-4E Phantom II on My Kits Direct:

http://www.mykitsdirect.com/product_p/tm60310.htm

I'm not a huge fan of the paint on this....any suggestions for variations that might work on this aircraft?

I've seen the markings for 469th FS/388th TFW Korat RTAB, 1968 and 469th TFS/388th TFW, but don't really like those either.

Thanks,
Stevie

You could get Isracast's slat set http://www.isradecal.com/) or rob some from a Revell F-4E/F, and that will open up a lot more markings possibilities. Isracast also sells a Kurnass conversion, as well as decals. For USAF slatted F-4Es, you'll probably have to piece together some markings, or use the MO ANG or NJ ANG decals from the Revell kit. Shouldn't be too hard to do.

That's exactly why I turned here...too many choices! It's like one of those 20-page pancake house menus out there...
