If you've been keeping up with recent events, you've seen the nice array of AMS Resin detailed resin cockpits for the Revell/Monogram, Kinetic, and FM/Heller F-84F kits as well as for the FM/Heller RF-84F kits. Well AMS Resin didn't stop there. They've been working on a variety of new subjects, and this set takes care of another pet peeve out there in the modeling world.
Following the release of the FOD covers for the Tamiya 1/32 Phantoms, AMS has returned with a similar set designed for Revell's impressive 1/32 F-4E, F-4F, RF-4C, and RF-4E kits.
AMS Resin has created crisply detailed resin FOD covers for your intakes. No need for surgery or mods to the kit, just insert these into the intakes just like the real covers, and you're finished. Oh yes, you might want to paint them first...
These intakes are good for all of the later Revell Phantom kits and are not designed for the Tamiya kits nor do I believe they will work with the really ancient F-4E and F-4J kits released by Revell many decades ago. This is a simple conversion to help cover up those empty intake ducts.
Recommended for experienced modelers!
My sincere thanks to AMS Resin for this review sample!
