The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is an iconic jet fighter which first flew for the USA in 1958. In Japan, it was introduced into the Air Self-Defense Force, and manufactured and licensed as the F-4EJ. F-4EJ Kai was the designation applied to existing Japanese-built F-4EJ fighters that were upgraded in a modernisation program initiated in July of 1984 by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, with the objective of updating JASDF F-4Es to standards appropriate for the 1990s and beyond.

The JASDF boasts F-4 squadrons that trace histories back over decades; some F-4EJ Phantom squadrons have been celebrating decades since the start of their operations, and 2020 marks a landmark as these warbirds are slowly retired, resulting in fantastic, colourful markings commemorating over 40 years of sterling service.

Following the popularity of the SWS 1/48 F-4E (Early), the JASDF's F-4EJ Kai Phantom II is finally here in a special limited edition release, exclusively released by Zoukei-Mura to celebrate one of the country's most famous jet fighters.
