Hobby Master Steve Ricthie

A Case of Ritchie Deja Vu



If you missed Hobby Master’s Steve Richie 1:72 scale F-4 Phantom on its first high-speed pass several years ago then you may want to sit up and take notice of this second sortie. Hobby Master just announced that an all-new F-4D version of his Vietnam era warbird is expected this summer, this time bearing all five MiG kills (“red stars”) on the fuselage but more importantly, flashing Ritchie’s signature on the display base.


Naturally enough, this extremely sought after replica will set you back a few dollars more than when his first mount was released, but when you consider what his autograph brings to the table and the relatively low number of models being produced (only 800), we believe that HA1973 is going to be snapped up in a heartbeat. Keep your eye on this one!
