Response to Academy's F-4J is available as Sprue Brothers...

Several years ago before Eduard issued their MiG-21 series they announced they were going to do the Phantom series after the MiG. They cancelled it later explaining another company was going to do a Phantom series and they didn't want their product to have to compete with another. At the time they didn't mention who the other company was. Shortly after, Academy announced their intent to issue the Phantom. A lot of people were concerned thinking an Eduard Phantom would have been much better than an Academy kit. That has proven to be a mistake but I was wondering if back during the planning stages shortly after Eduard canceled their Phantom, Eduard may have entered into a secret sort of agreement offering their assistance and perhaps some of their data research to Academy as Eduard is now issuing the Academy kit but under their own label. Any thoughts?
A pipe gives a wise man time to think,
and a fool something to stick in his mouth.
