Wingman Models has released a very nice resin conversion set to update the Tamiya 1/32 scale Tamiya F-4E kit. 

The Tamiya F-4E kit includes unslatted wings which only allows the modeller to build the early version of this type.  This conversion includes the outer wings and slats plus the inner wing actuators. 



To make the attachment of the parts easier, the inner wings hinges are already part of the outer wings.  For late block F-4Es the TISEO is included as well. 



The TISEO requires some minor kit surgery to install and there are some panel lines that need to be filled and the inner wing slat panel lines need to be inscribed on the original kit.  The remainder of the assembly is very straight forward replacement. 



The resin is beautifully cast and should look superb when installed.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Wingman Models for the sample
