  1. Thanks guys for all the advice - exactly what I was looking for. Monogram it is and I plan to go to town on this one. I will make the D as a late 60's Vietnam based airframe. So far I have the Legend set (I understand it has issues itself, particularly the seat), the Eduard etched set, plus the photoetch from the hi tech version of the kit. Anything else out there worth getting? Will keep you posted. Will
  2. I have the Monogram F-100D and am not afraid to reescribe it. My concern is on dimensional accuracy - Is the Trumpeter kit as accurate? I know about the bottom of the intake but is there anything else to be aware of? Thanks in Advance Will
  3. This is a kit that has been woefully overlooked from an aftermarket perspective. It makes into an impressive model but definitely needs help, paricularly with the engines and interior. It has been around since the '80s and there must be some serious demand for detail sets for the beast. Will
  4. The credit crunch finally has to be acknowledged as is the gargantuan nature of my stash.

  5. I also have the beast. There were some aftermarket intake sets produced by a british company about 4 years ago but haven't heard from them for a while. Curtting Edge also produces a fix for the canopy which looks good (I haven't fitted mine yet). The biggest problem with the kit (and it shares this with the Monogram kit) is the nose. It looks pinched and not the constant ogive from behind the the cockpit almost. I wish someone would make a fix for this. Way beyond my modelling skills I am afraid. Will
  6. Chris That is a significant improvement. Some featrures are always more obvious than others and the F100 intake falls into that category. You are not thinking of fixing the nose on the 32nd scale Trumpeter F105D by any chance. That is something else that is very wrong? Will
  7. I recently won a 1/48th Revell CH53G from eBay (not the later CH53GS). What US versions can I make form this kit? I am particularly interested in doing a Vietnam era HH53C or Marines CH53 A/D. I hadn't appreciated there were differences between the 2 kits. In addition are there any detail sets available? Thanks in advance Will
