  1. Fast Eagle 100 as she looked in 1993 I figured I'd post a WIP thread even though my camera charger is AWOL at the moment, so there are no pictures for now. Not to worry, nothing done yet makes for good pictures, anyway. I will be using the Fujimi 1/72 F-14A kit for this build, but I have a Fujimi F-14D as a backup as well as some spare pieces from a trashed build of another Fujimi kit. The most important parts being the nose half with the NACA gun vents and extra Sidewinder rails. Why do I need a backup kit, you ask? Because I will attempt to build this as an in-flight
  2. I was looking at the sprues for their VF-1 boxing of this kit and I don't see the pieces to make the 4 Aim-9's work. The 4 missiles are there, but only 2 rails and the pylons provided only give you the choice of the Sparrow or Phoenix missiles.
  3. Cool idea for a project. Doe this older Academy kit allow for the 4 Aim-9 loud out as shown on the box art?
  4. Great news. I'm down for a pilot and RIO as long as they can be used for in-flight displays. Really, I was looking over your site the day before you posted this figure and if there were figures like this one with the MBU-14/P masks I would have bought them on the spot.
  5. Your figures look amazing. Do you have any plans to make these seated figures with HGU-55/P or HGU-68/P helmets with the MBU-14/P oxygen mask? These are needed for Tomcats and Hornets from the 1990's and early 2000's.
  6. Thanks! I was looking in the "profile" section.
  7. How can you change sig banners? I can't figure out how to do it on here after the forum software was changed.
  8. I've got a pair of Fujimi 1/72 tomcats. First, I'll build Fast Eagle 100 from 1993 using Furball decals. I plan to build it in-flight, so the second kit may be used as a on-deck build in case I mess up the first one. If build one goes smoothly, then I'll build up #2 with another scheme from the sheet.
  9. More so layering, but being able to mix paints for custom colors would be a nice option.
  10. With MM paints nearing total extinction, I figure I will need to change paint brands in the near future. But seeing that I still have dozens of good MM paint jars, I'd like to choose a brand whose paints will work well with my MM paints instead of starting from scratch with an entire new paint line. What are my options?
  11. As a wise man once told me, "Falling knives don't have handles."
