Default F-4J wing question

Hi Guys

Does anybody have any good pictures of the F-4J wings. I checked in the
old Detail and Scale book and it said that the F-4J didn't have the inner
leading edge flaps. The scale drawings in the book show no lines but it
didn't have any good pics of the forward leading edge of the "J" wing.
Tried Google too but no luck.

What I'd like to know is, would the inner leading edge flap lines still be on
the "J" wings and the inner flaps locked down or should they be puttied
over. I'm working on a Hasegawa F-4J and would like to get it right.

Thanks
Jim

Looks like there's still a seam in this pic. I think it's a British bird but still based on the J

The inner leading-edge flap wasn't functional but the panel lines were present, although not as perceptible as the separation between the outboard flaps and the wing surface aft of them. That section of the leading edge was removable for access to the BLC ducting.
