  1. Yeah I don’t follow them enough to know if the Su-25 is 32 or 48 For whatever reason they both look 32 to me
  2. No confirmation that I could find on scale. Nice how they don’t include any other objects so you get a sense of size. They included in a FB post with 3 other pics of an Su-25. Makes me wonder if it wasn’t an oops
  3. I’d argue that you can still spot trends... x2 35th Zulu Cobra sheets? Hmmm Brookhurst Hobbies in Garden Grove had a stack of Tamiya 14As just after it dropped. I swear I haven’t seen that many boxes of the same kit in the same space since the 80s Omaha NATS. Everybody had a Meng F-35 under one arm and an Eduard Bf under the other. Abrams. It’s the Bf/51/Spit of of the Armored world. Something else that really on fire 50 years after? Moon landing. Mercury Redstone Atlas Gemini Titan Apollo Saturn LEM is all coming out of the woodwork. You see multiple companies doing the same subject...That’s not Socialism (everyone gets the same thing), that’s capitalism at its popularism best. Any threads that starts with “What subject would you like to see a new tool kit of?” You’ll get 51 responses with 68 different subjects (always a cadre that expects instructions are for others and list multiple subjects)....Unpopular, unpopular unpopular x66. If it had any shred of possibility of being at least liked...yup, somebody would tool it. Last hint. Any thread that has a post “why’d they tool that, we have so many already! We really needed a whatever.” Yup, you guessed it again .. the whatever is joykill. The subject we have too many off, wait for it...popular.
  4. Coming from Darren? Now there’s a shocker!
  5. I take that back. AS blue F-15As had an external stffner on the large speed brake https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/f-15-differences-t236442.html i think you can see it in this photo https://static.thisdayinaviation.com/wp-content/uploads/tdia//2012/11/McDonnell-Douglas-F-15A-8-MC-Eagle-73-0090-Air-Superiority-Blue-.jpg
  6. Everything I’ve read is that the small brake/square wingtips/strait (no dog tooth) H Stab would be pre production aircraft only.. (now watch someone throw down a 1st TFW pic of an F-15 with a small speed brake)
  7. Interesting blog site by a former McAir engineer Speed brakes http://aviationarchives.blogspot.com/2014/12/f-15-speed-brake-development.html Wing Tips http://aviationarchives.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-saga-of-f-15-wing-tips-to-clip-or.html http://aviationarchives.net/The%20Saga%20of%20the%20F-15%20Wing%20Tips_Revised%201_.pdf Since production As are externally identical to the C, you’ve got the same amount of work to get to a pre production A from either an ancient F-15A kit or a newer tool C. Wheels, seat, cockpit, and exhausts are the telling differences between non MISP As and C models. Most of that should be covered by AM. Have I missed anything?
  8. Nice work so far. Been thinking about doing this kit. Following with interest
  9. Nice work! Are the hubs the same color as the struts?
  10. United States Naval History and Heritage Command info on Gedunk: https://www.history.navy.mil/research/library/online-reading-room/title-list-alphabetically/g/gedunk.html
  11. This is how I did mine http://zone-five.net/showpost.php?p=86404&postcount=39
  12. It's not fun till somebody says they don't Facebook...
  13. I think this is the latest over at Facebook: There are more comments in the discussion
  14. This paper has some pretty good labeled pictures explaining the links on main gear https://trace.tennessee.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=1110&context=utk_gradthes
  15. In case anybody's interested. According to the Incomplete Guide To Airfoil Usage https://m-selig.ae.illinois.edu/ads/aircraft.html The F-100 used a NACA 64A007 Airfoil for the wing. Naturally I can't find another source to corroborate it, but there you go. So, if you have an F-100 kit wing, measure it's length along the fuselage side, multiply my 7%, (.07) and that length should be the max thickness, at about 40% back from the LE
