Reviewed by Randy Bumgardner

Following their decals for export F/A-18C/D's, F-4Dable Models brings out their inaugural resin and photoetch set. This update set is intended to be used with F-4Dable Model's previous decal releases "Export Bugs (A)" and "Export Bugs (B)", andis perfect for those wishing to build late production Hornets used by the Swiss, Finnish, and Malaysian air forces. A number of USN and USMC units use these Hornets as well.

The set contains five resin parts and a photoetch fret. The resin parts consist of a GPS dome, the chaff/flare dispensers, and the fairings for the main landing gear doors. The resin is finely cast with very little flash and a high level of detail. The flash is restricted to the area between the pour stub and the actual part - minimal effort to remove. The photoetch fret contains the corrected late style fishbone LERX vents. The detail on the photoetch is very well done, as shown in the image below.

For anyone wishing to build a late production Bug, especially an export version, this set is one of those small details that will set your model apart. I highly recommend this set for any large scale export Hornet.

I would like to extend a great big Thank You to Jason Chea and F-4Dable Models for this review sample.
