Good Morning Da Nang is a re-boxed Academy 1/48th F-4B Phantom II, with a ton of resin and photo etch added.
Andy Brazier delves into the very large box.

Andy, nice review thank you, now to weigh up the options and decide if I should get another Academy kit or the Eduard offering with AM decals in either case.

Andy,
Just an outstanding review. You went into great detail especially with the Eduard additions. And thanks for being so kind as to offer a link to my current F4_B build.

I've been looking forward to purchasing the Academy F4-C for my 2nd F4 build this year. But now I think I'll wait to see if they kit is reboxed by Eduard's with all that PE and resin AM parts.

Terrific review. How I wish Tamiya would issue an F-4B in 1/32nd scale.

And I've heard rumors that Academy will be issuing a "J" late this year. Looks like by the end of 2015, I'll have 3 1/48 scale F4's in my display case.
