AFTERMARKET REVIEW


CMK Quick & Easy F-4B/J/N/S Phantom II In-Flight Refueling Probe -- 1:72 Scale

vol_2_image

The Hasegawa family of 1:72 scale U.S. Navy Phantom II kits have been out there since 1990, and they remain (in this reviewer’s opinion) excellent and very accurate kits.  One feature that they do not have, however, is a provision for an extended in-flight refueling (IRF) probe.  Navy Phantoms, of course, utilized a probe-and drogue system.  CMK’s Quick & Easy line provides a simple cast resin set to add this feature to your Navy Phantom II.  

This set contains four cast resin parts:  the IFR bay, drag brace/actuator, the IFR door, and the probe itself.  You’ll need to do a little surgery to get the bay incorporated into the kit by cutting away the closed IFR door and removing part of the RIO’s right side console.

CMK’s castings, as usual, are flawless and very nicely detailed.  If you’re interested in adding an interesting feature to your Hasegawa F-4B, J, N, or S, this little set will do the trick to make your model stand out just that much more.   

Sincere thanks are owed to Special Hobby for the review sample.  You can visit them on the web at http://www.specialhobby.info and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/specialhobby
