  1. Guys..it's a movie..there is no real life timeline. The story could take place any year since the last movie.
  2. Tank...excellent article. Just what I was looking for. I've realized that for the price of any resin or brass update, I can buy an old Airfix kit as a donor for a few needed parts such as the beacons. Did the SH-3 have one or two windows on the port side? I think I see two windows on some photos, the most forward one partially hidden by the brace for the sponson. Thanks for your assistance.
  3. Merry Christmas guys!! Just a thought while I was on the CPU before dinner. I just got hold of the "new" Airfix Westland Sea KIng HAR.3 and it appears to be a fine kit. I will build it as such, although I do also like the Revell offering also in 1/72. My question is simple. I always wanted to do a nice US Navy SH-3 like the famed " Helicopter 66". Is either the Revell or new Airfix offering buildable as an early US Navy version? I know I'd have leave off and shave off all of those add-on pieces for starters such as any ECM./radars etc. I can also also come up with the appropriate tail rotor from an old AIrfix kit if I have too. . I am mostly concerned about any major surgery on the fuselage. Any thoughts or suggestions will be appreciated.
  4. Hi gents..I see Revell is releasing a 1/72 F-104G soon. As I have been out of the cycle for a while, i've lost track of what is what. Is this a new mold or a re-boxing of someone else's kit? I know Hasagawa has a nice kit of the F-104G but that has its faults and is a bit long in the tooth. Thanks in advance for any info.
  5. I'd love an EB-57 sheet, but there are no real kits of that version, and the conversion isn't easy. We need some enterprising resin company to release a conversion in conjunction with the decal sheet. Perhaps a package deal.
  6. Meng--worst best kit I ever built. I think I'm a good modeler but this one took me three (yes three) tries to get it right. Tolerances are so tight that tube glue can make the build very difficult . Lots of tibs and bits on the parts, some are locating pins, some are sprue attachments which can affect mating surfaces. More later.
  7. The the original kit from the fifties might be worth $50-60. The release is probably $20 or so.
  8. Here....

  9. Excuse my stupidity gents..but just where do I find pictures of Shawn's F-4's??
  10. Hi guys... Time to downsize. Ive got about every Detail and Scale and "In Action". Too numerous to mention. Price is $5.00 each, D'&S,. "In Actions are $4 each..3/$10. 00,. Also other Squadron Signal publications. Combined shipping if course. Send me a list of what your looking for. Let's make a deal.
  11. A couple of general notes: beware of one day strikes in France. there was some spoofing on rail websites especially from U S origin searches. Make sure you are where you really want to be before submitting credit card numbers. there are both national and privately owned fast train companies, at least in Italy. Prices vary wildly so be careful. when in doubt, a good old fashioned travel agent (even American Express) will get it done. It's worth a few extra dollars and you can insure that you got it right and get "paper" tickets in advance for your main trip. Local day trips are best done on the spot; your hotel can help. Lots of English spoken in Germany at the ticket windows, machines are sometimes bilingual . trains are very punctual. My wife and I made the mistake of trying to catch a train scheduled at 1220 so we got on the train sitting on the same track at 1217 thinking a few minutes didn't matter. They do, it was a 1217 train . If they say 1220 they mean 1220.
  12. Well done....VF-11 is a great scheme
