    Century Series fighters, Esp. F-100s and F-104s, and USAFE in the 60s
  1. That's correct. There was / is a Victor Alert area at Wethersfield, where nuke armed F - 100's sat on alert, as did the 48th. TFW at Lakenheath. As you say, The nukes were carried on the centreline pylon.
  2. The UK based F - 100's mostly carried the 335 gal. wing tanks after camouflage was introduced, although there were still some 450 gal. and 275 gal. tanks in use. They mostly had the centreline pylon fitted at all times with the MN 1 ( SUU 21 ) practice bomb carrier fitted from time to time. also, occasionally outer wing pylons were fitted. At the moment I'm building the Trumpeter 1/32 F - 100D, although mine is in the earlier " Aluminium " finish of a 20th. TFW bird. Hopefully i can post some pics when finished. HTH 🙂
  3. Looking good, dai phan. Those Fundekal sheets are superb, although I used Xtradecals for my P - 38., I did use Fundekals for my F -102A Delta Dagger, and they went on no problem at all. I think they must be one of the best researched sheets, and they're worth it just for the instruction sheets alone.😀
  4. Well, your model is looking good so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing it when finished. I love Tamiya kits, as they are such a joy to build. 🙂.
  5. You won't need any filler for this . . . I had this as a present last Christmas, and finished it in March, and have to say it's the best fitting kit I've ever built , so enjoy !
  6. Hi Karl, My e mail address is : patemm17@gmail.com Part E 21 is the part I need, but you can send me a pic just to make sure if you want. 🙂
  7. Thanks for that, Karl, but I think the F - 100C is a 1/48th. scale, and my model is 1/32 scale, but thanks for your offer, it's much appreciated. Of course, if you have the 1/32 kit as well that would be great.🙂
  8. Hi Karl, The C sprue has the wings,so not the same. The part I need is E 21, which is part of the landing gear( Left )
  9. Hi guys, Hoping someone can help me here. I'm looking for a replacement part ( E 21 ) which is part of the retraction mechanism of the left main landing gear. Unfortunately this part is missing from my kit, which I bought second hand some time ago, and I've only just discovered this 🙁. I know the kit originally came with metal parts as well, but they too are missing. If anyone can help me out I'd be eternally grateful, and would of course be willing to pay any costs ( ie : postage to the UK, etc. ) I could try and make the part, but I don't think my scratch building skills would
  10. I'll let you know when I get to that stage, but it looks OK at the moment. Guess I'll find out when I get the fuselage together !
  11. Funny you should say that, Curt. I'm building the 1/48 Bf 109F 4 at the moment, and I too had a short shot horizontal stabiliser . Luckily I managed to fill it with some Perfect Plastic Putty ( Wonderful stuff ! ) Haven't looked at the windscreen yet, so hopefully that will be OK.
  12. Oh wow ! Thay's a lovely model of my favourite airplane. 😍
  13. That Belcher bits set looks just the part for your model, Spruemeister, and it's probably a lot cheaper than the Daco set ( Although that is very comprehensive ). 😀
  14. VERY nice indeed ! I must say that the Tamiya Mossie is a joy to build, with no filler required, and fits like a dream. If only all models were like that ! 😀
