The F-4 Phantom's air conditioning system used two small intake scoops, which were mounted on either side of the nose just behind the radome.
These intakes are drop-fit replacements for the Academy kit parts
Air conditioning intakes
Moulding these intakes from injection plastic has historically been difficult due to their small size and thickness which approached the limits to which plastic can be formed economically. Resin is capable of holding thin detail much better.
These scoops are made to be glued directly in place of the Academy kit parts. Once freed from their moulding plinths and cleaned up, mounting them in place will be simplicity itself.
update from the manufacturer
Since posting this review, I have been contacted by Hypersonic models who have explained a few matters. In Hypersonic's words "The intake part in the kit is overly simplified/incorrect in shape and also in the wrong location, hence the rather odd looking insert piece on my part that fills the recess in the fuselage and has the corrected intake sitting on top."
