Hypersonic Models 1/48 Resin F-4 Phantom Stabilator Upgrade for Zoukei Mura - HMR48032
Designed for Zoukei Mura
This is an upgrade set for Zoukei Mura Phantoms. As per the kit, the stabilators can only be mounted in one (or two) position(s). With this set, you can set the stabilators in any position of your choice and improve the detail on the stabilator pivot cover plates as well. Also included are the reinforcement "fish" plates found on Air Force Phantom stabilators (not found in the ZM kits). Photos show how a "pitch up" and "pitch down" position looks like before the PE cover plates are installed. Note this set does not make the stabilators movable. After the position is selected, everything has to be glued in place.
Even though some modification work on the kit is necessary this set has been designed to be as easy and straight forward as possible. In addition to the new stabilator mounting block there are two resin "plugs" included that just clip into the kit's stabilator mounting slots. You then scribe a line around them to mark exactly where to make the cut out in the correct size and shape.
The instructions also come with a 1:48 line drawing to indicate the exact position for the stabilator reinforcement plates.
