1/72 2-1 12 Squared F-4X(S)-HIAC Phantom II Reconnissance Conversion (F-4E(S))
Plastic Model Kit
Limited run injection molded conversion in white and clear plastic. Includes all parts needed for the conversion including the camera which can be mounted inside the nose or on provided display stands. Uses the Hasegawa F-4E (or other 1/72 F-4E kits) to build one of the three Israeli F-4E(S) aircraft. In the 1960s General Dynamics developed the RB-57F that held the 66 inch focal length HIAC-1 Camera. This amazing camera got smaller with time, and by the early 1970s the Israeli Air Force expressed an interest in having the HIAC mounted in an F-4 Phantom II. Originally mounted in a 22 foot pod, by 1974 the camera had been integrated into the F-4 Fuselage. Originally the F-4X was to have Mach 3.2 capability, but the US Air Force dropped it's support with the F-15 coming on line soon. The IAF completed the project, but only the HIAC nose version, designated F-4E(S) which this kit represents.
