Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Collect-Aire
Name: Northrop X-4
Scale: 1:48
Kit contents: 22 resin parts
25 white metal parts
2 vacuformed clear canopies
decals
instructions
Comments: The resin parts are solid, with recessed panel lines and no evident airholes. The wing and main fuselage are molded as one piece, with separate nose, tail, and split flap pieces. There is a bit of flash on some of the thinner parts. The white metal parts provide all the probes, mass balances, cockpit detail, and actuators on the aircraft. Two clear vacuformed canopies are included. The instruction booklet includes several exploded drawings, calling the parts out by number... but there are no corresponding numbers on the parts, so you have to match the shapes. Painting and decaling guides for the various schemes, a program history (apparently copied but not credited from Jay Miller's The X-Planes), and several view drawings of the aircraft complete the instructions. The waterslide decals include all markings needed to represent either aircraft.
