The Fine Molds F-4 Phantom II Production Guide shares how to get the most out of Fine Molds’ superb 1/72 Phantoms.


In Japan for about half a century The F-4 Phantom II is widely known for its continued flight in the sky. Fine Molds F-4 Phantom II Production Guide thoroughly explains how to make the 1/72 Fine Molds kit, released as the definitive version of such a popular model.

In order to make it easy for beginners to understand, we will divide the process into chapters in the order of production, such as cockpit production, line carving, basic painting, etc., and carefully explain each process along with large photos.

Chapter 1 introduces the basics of assembly and painting of the most familiar “F-4EJ Kai Air Self-Defense Force specification”. We have significantly added and revised the content published in the November 2022 issue of the aircraft model magazine “Bimonthly Scale Aviation” to reduce the basics of F-4 production. In the second chapter, we will explain how to paint camouflage using the “F-4D Vietnam camouflage specification”, and in the third chapter, we will explain the weathering techniques to make the Phantom even more realistic using the “F-4J US Navy specification”.

Fine Molds F-4 Phantom II Production Guide is a must-have book for those who know the basics but want to take it to the next level, or who want to know techniques that can be applied not only to Phantoms but also to working plastic models, as it includes two additional how-tos using newly created examples.
