US Navy's Naval Flight Demonstration Squadron (Blue Angels)
Model Built by Dan Savage

This sport-scale, radio control model airplane kit of the F-4 Phantom II is designed to use most 900-1500w, 90mm tractor fans. It will accept most mini retractable landing gear or you can use a bungee launch system instead.

The inlet ducts and fuselage have been simplified to speed construction but sacrifice nothing for scale appearance or performance. The full-flow inlet ducting is area-ruled for maximum efficiency.

All fuselage and wing sheeting is of the finest balsa available and is included with the deluxe kit.

Includes laser-cut wood, plans, molded nose cone, engine nozzle, clear canopy and .010" tailpipe plastic sheet. Also included is the sheet and strip balsa wood, magnets and bristol paper. You print your own copy of the construction guide.
