  1. The F-86H in SEA camouflage is the most interesting for me. Too meek to take up the challenge of converting any of the Sabre kits to represent an F-86H so good on you to consider doing so.
  2. I know, this seems like beating the proverbial dead horse but I have to ask. Why beyond the 1/72nd scale F-86H and the OOP/OOB Collectaire 1/48th F-86H there is no normal injection moulded 1/48th scale F-86H for the rest of us to enjoy?
  3. Sad to see that price-gouging is alive and well for what was at one time an affordable accessory for models.

  4. Don. The fire bomb stores you are looking for were also available in resin from KMC many moons ago and later on under the Squadron "True Details" brand name as the BLU-10 Napalm Bomb.

  5. Sorry about sending you on a snipe hunt. I should have taken time to check the details further. :/
  6. There are four of those missile shapes included in the [url=https://www.scalemates.com/kits/dml-5511-ho-229b-nachtjager--1191213]DML/Dragon (5511) 1/48th scale Horten Ho 229B Nachtjager[/url]
  7. Always happy to be of assistance. I am surprised that no one has provided us with a better SUU-13 now that 3D printing is available.
  8. DesignationSystems.net has some information on the SUU-13 munitions dispenser at this link: http://www.designation-systems.net/usmilav/asetds/u-s.html#_SUU13 The list of sub-munitions includes the CBU-30 and has a link to that weapon within the listing. The early Minicraft/Academy 1/48th scale UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter kits used to include two SUU-13 munitions dispenser shapes..

Depending on the time of day that you visit Skyway Model Shop the traffic might be a only slightly annoying to downright impossible to comprehend. So it might be in your best interest to just sit it out for a spell and doing that at the aforementioned eating establishment will go a very long way towards reducing the str
  12. Skyway Model Shop located just south of Seattle in Skyway-Renton will be your best option. Emil is the owner/operator and he stocks a lot of interesting things including acquisitions from estate sales. Address/location, hours of operation and contact information can be found at this link to his web page: Skyway Model Shop
  13. Encountered the same crew at HyperScale replying to my post. Same set up, contact the "Friend" that has the items. It smelled sketchy from the start and when I checked the IP address it was showing up being located in Central Africa. Nope, Nope, Nope!
  14. An explanation has been provided courtesy of another modeler via the HyperScale Plane Talking Forum that has built the Tarangus Lansen and is much more knowledgeable on the subject: [quote]Those are shields to deflect cartridge casings away from the belly tank. You're right, they're not in the instructions but they are visible in the marking and painting profiles.[/quote] Link to thread: Tarangus 1/48th scale A32 and J32 Lansen mystery parts.
