  1. I only took around 150 photos in the 4 hours I was there. You're right though, with the size of some of the aircraft it's nearly impossible to get the whole aircraft in one shot.
  2. You can still get good shots...I took these photos with my cellphone without flash in October..
  3. I was there in October, just passing through with my wife. My sister used to live in Farborn, just north of the Museum. At every visit with her I'd go at least once, usually two days. With my wife, this last time, I was only there for around 5 hours since I had to drive the rest of the way home...not nearly as long as I would have liked.
  4. Those look great...If you could get some in 1/72 scale, I'd jump on them in a second...My B-1B and B-52 kits could sure use them.....
  5. Here is the cockpit of the A-1H from the AF Museum....
  6. Hello, I'm looking for the kit decals from the 1/48 61086 Tamiya P-47D kit (https://www.scalemates.com/kits/tamiya-61086-republic-p-47d-thunderbolt-razorback--121538. I managed to get the nose art on, but most of the rest of decals split when trying to apply them. If you have the decals to spare, please let me know and we can work out some type of deal. Thanks, Gary
  7. Maybe it's already been mentioned, but another one I'd like to see would be the AH-54A Cheyenne. The only options that I know of are the Atlantis (a re-pop of the old Aurora kit) and Anigrand (Resin) kits in 1/72. I think either an accurate 1/72 or 1/48 kit would be a seller. I know I'd be interested in it.
  8. I second you there...I have a Fujimi N and have been hoping for an upgrade set...I thought Flying Leathernecks might do a set, but it's been awhile since that was mentioned.
  9. I lived about 3 miles from Blytheville/ Eaker in the late 70s. I sure wish I would have taken shots back then. I used to sit at the end of the runway and watch the touch and go's.
  10. Thanks for the correction. I went ahead and pulled out the tanks and they are the same size as the F-15 tanks from the Academy kit so I guess they were the center tanks.
  11. Where are you located (it isn't in your profile)? I may have either F-15 or F-4 wing tanks (I think they are the same). If you're in the US. I'll look. It's a pain to fill out the custom forms if you're not in the US.
  12. I don't think that they are strictly electric, at least not totally. I know that the horizonal tail uses a self contained hydraulic system, that is, all of the hydraulic fluid used in the actuator is recycled within the actuator assembly via a motor attached to it. I am pretty confident that the flap system uses the same type of setup. Each actuator assembly does have it own electrical control unit. It would make sense that the units wouldn't bleed down with this system.
