The Three Highlights of the F-4EJ Kai:
The F-4EJ Kai is recreated in its special commemorative JASDF retirement markings, as one of the seven releases in the SWS long-nose F-4 kit lineup (F-4E Early/Late, F-4EJ/EJ Kai, F-4F/F ICE, and F-4G).
Don’t miss the elongated nose for mounting the Vulcan cannon as well as the fairing under the nose for the cannon, distinctive of long-nose F-4 Phantom II aircraft. The F-4EJ Kai utilizes seven additional lightning strips (static dischargers) on the nose radome as well as a long flash suppressor at the tip of the fairing.
In 2020, the 301st Tactical Fighter Squadron of the 7th Air Wing based at Hyakuri Air Base flew F-4EJ Kai aircraft with the special “Go for it!! 301sq” retirement markings. The squadron’s signature frog marking on the vertical stabilizer was selected as the commemorative motif for the aircraft’s final flight with the 301st Tactical Fighter Squadron on November 20th, 2020. The five stars on the upper surface of the left wing signify that the aircraft was previously assigned to the 5th Air Wing at the Nyutabaru Air Base, and the seven stars on the right wing signify the 7th Air Wing of the Hyakuri Air Base. The brilliant yellow bandana design with the symbolic stars on each side is particularly distinctive.

No details left out, including the faithfully-replicated engines.
F-4EJ Kai J/APR-6 antennas for the new RWR (radar warning receivers) on the fin tip caused a blind spot for the tail light at the tip of the tail, so an additional tail light was added to the tailcone popup door. The stabilators have slots on the leading edge, and there are additional arrow-shaped reinforcement panels on upper and lower surfaces for both sides for some of the aircraft. The engines are the same as U.S. F-4 aircraft, General Electric’s J79 jet engines. The specific type used, J79-GE(IHI)-17, is almost exactly the same as the J79-GE-17 used to power the USAF F-4E, and can be self-started with MXU-4/A gunpowder cartridge starters. This SWS kit gives the option to assemble with the nozzles opened or closed.
