If you were to build just one Phantom F4E, which kit/scale would you build? I have a friend who flew Phantoms and spent most of his time in an F4E. I was thinking of building him one to replicate what he flew and need some guidance as I am mostly an armor guy. I have asked him to provide me with a picture or pictures so I'll have wait to see what he provides for particular references.

Can't go wrong with the Tamiya 1/32 kit. As I recall, they used to do early and late E kits but it looks like the early one may be the only one available right now. 'Course my memory may be off. Still, a great kit (if pricey)!
