Hi-Decal has announced a decal sheet that will be available in 1/72 and 1/48 scales:

I have the great pleasure to send you enclosed the very first scanns of the newest Hi-Decal releases in 1/48th and 1/72nd scales:

HD 48033 & HD 72063

McDonnell F-4E Phantom II "Pharaoh's Ghosts" (4)

222nd Tactical Fighter Brigade, Egyptian Air Force:

  • 66-0366 / 7813 in disruptive "Compass Ghost Grey" camouflage, 1980,

  • 67-0289 / 7827 in "South East Asia" camouflage with orange & black quick ID panels, 1983,

  • 67-0341 / 7818 in "Hill One" scheme, seen in 1988,

  • 67-0239 / 7817 in "Hill Two" scheme with orange & black quick ID panels, 1990. Before being sold to Egypt, this Phantom was credited with the downing of a Vietnamese MiG-21 in August 1972, when serving with the USAF 58th TFS.

Strangely, the Egyptian Air Force F-4Es were the only Phantoms that have never been, till now, available in decal form. 

Therefore, this is the first decal sheet ever covering in detail these long serving Spooks, and offer to the modeller the possibility to make all the schemes that these birds wore during their service with the EAF. 

The decals are ready, but we are currently still working on the instruction sheets. The new decal sets are scheduled for release in early December.

Thanks to HiDecal for the information and images.
