  1. Looks good so far. You may want to add some wheels to your aftermarket, the wheels from the kit are for C/D/E/F/G versions. RAF used F-4J (USN) type wheels.
  2. The RoG F-16C Block 50 kit has intakes and nozzles for Block 52, plus HTS pod and MO/366FW decals. HTH
  3. Decent 1/48 F-105D/G, F-111 and A-10A/C kits are what I'd like to see most. I don't care for open avionics or engine bays, radar, etc. (most guys that like that go aftermarket or scratch anyways), but it is pathetic when modern kits have worse shape issues than Monogram or Academy kits from the last millenium. Also hope for a 1/72 B-1B (and that Modelcollect does a better job than with the B-52G/H).
  4. Just some food for thought:: - I believe it is fair to say that both LtGen Hertling (cited above) and LtGen Hodges as former commanders of US Army Europe (USAREUR) know what they are talking about when they assess the announced troop reductions in Germany as detrimental to the strategic posture of the U.S. and the security of all NATO members. - LtGen Hertling was strictly opposed to the withdrawal of the last 2 heavy Infantry Brigades from Germany between 2012 and 2014 by the Obama administration. Coincidentally (?), Russia occupied the Crimea peninsula, sent troops to
  5. I still think the Monogram kit has the best shape ... and you are right, the old Revell had sink marks, awful fit and detail, but IMO had a much better overall shape than the Tamiya, Italeri or the 32nd Trumpeter kits.
  6. You're spot on. The pictures I saw appear to be from early 2014.
  7. Hi, looking for Afterburner Decals 48-023 "The Big 22" and 48-002 "Shaw Shooters"/ F-16CJ. Complete or partial sheets. Thanks for looking.
  8. Stunning craftsmanship. I am waiting to see how you tackle the infamous wing/fuselage joint.
  9. That's excellent all around...I don't know your references; the pictures I saw show untinted canopy with black frame. Are you going to replicate this?
  10. Chris, I agree it's a F-111 tank; however, one caveat - I don't think it's from a FB. This tank has the pylon spacer only used on D,E and F models so the tanks would not interfere with the flaps; IIRC the FB had different wing pylons that did not require spacers. Also, the underside of the tank is black; FB's never had black undersides.
  11. IIRC, 5580 was the replacement for 5800 after it got lost. So the Fujimi markings do not represent Showtime 100 on 10 May 72 (at least as shown on the boxart).
  12. Chuck, I got both sets. If you still need the instructions, pm your email address and I will scan them in for you. Kai
  13. Lothar, If you just care about the plastic, I still have the old boxing with VFA-82 markings. PM me if you are interested. Kai
