F-4J Phantom II (oz9272)
About this Plan
F-4J Phantom II. Radio control scale model. Tractor-prop model, for 40 - 60 power. Scale is 1 in = 4-5/8 in.
Quote: "The McDonnell Phantom II. Commonly known as the F-4 this plane is called Phantom II because there really was a Phantom I. The Phantom I was tested then accepted by the Navy in 1946 and was the first Navy jet fighter. Because there really was a Phantom I, it is correct to refer to this craft as the Phantom II, or for simplicity, (and like the military does) just the F-4.
Your choice of this particular kit was an excellent one for numerous reasons. It is a beautiful project and as a 'jet job' will really stand out in todays run of the mill RCgroup. Another really great benefit for your choice is the wealth of current information regarding the F-4. It is really abundant.
The first thing you might do is locate a copy of the May 1970 American Aircraft Modeler magazine because Don Berliner wrote a very comprehensive article on the F-4 and accompanied it with four beautiful photos as well. As a priceless additional bonus the centerfold of this same magazine is a perfectly detailed set of drawings by Bjorn Karlstrom complete with many details of the variants such as extended noses on RF-4C and F-4D models..."

ScaleType: This (oz9272) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_Douglas_F-4_Phantom_II
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
