The mission continue with mainline from Hobby Master brand. This time, the Turkish F4E Phantom II aka Terminator on the line.

McDonnell F-4E 77-0308 was originally built in 1977 for the Turkish Air Force as c/n 5030. In the  late 1990s Turkey decided to upgrade the F-4E so it would be able to perform the tasks that  would be necessary until all the F-4s could be replaced by the F-35 Lightning II by 2020 or later. Extensive modifications were carried out on these aircraft by Israeli Aircraft Industries with the major upgrades being internal, new wiring, computers, radar and new weapons carrying capabilities. The new upgraded aircraft were named F-4E / 2020 “Terminators” and they first entered service on January 27, 2000 with the 111 “Panthers” and 171 Filo. 111 Filo is located at  Eski┼čehir in northwest Turkey.
