Thinking about Texan and Mentor precedent - there was a F-Toys´ F-4J, wasn´t it ?

I have their F-4EJ, which is pretty nice except for a fairly primitive cockpit - it's meant to be displayed with the included pilot figures.
I believe it is simply an unpainted kit version of the F-Toys F-4EJ.
It will be great to have a nice looking Navy Phantom - I've already put one on order, along with their F-104 with the cool NASA marking options.

On the Hobby Search site it said it is from F-Toys, I believe it is the F-4J Phantom from the first US Navy Collection series released back in 2008. In the original issues, there was a Blue Angel Phantom which is hard to come by on ebay now. It would be good to have a Phantom kit that can be built as the Navy version instead of the Trumpeter knockoff of the LS F-4E model that only had Navy decals.

Is it just one or two kits in the box?

Hopefully it really is 2 kits in the box. It would make it quite interesting package. Too bad Platz is hard to get outside Japan (in regular stores), this puppy is just calling for some nice Marines and Navy decals but I'm not sure whether they would sell enough to at least pay the costs...

I'm very confident it will be a two-kit box, their F4-EJ has two.
