  1. Roden 1/144 C-5

    That link, Aviation Megastore, is listing the kit @ € 99.13 without VAT. This comes to $116.50 USD and $145 CDN not including the shipping. A bit rich for what is appearing to be a simple kit. It better be spectacular given it's priced in the same bracket as most of Tamiya's recent 1/32 offerings, excluding the Mossie. Cheers, John
  2. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Wasn't the 'fire sale' price based on getting the 5000 unit pre-order number? I thought that if the pre-order wasn't met then it's back to the normal retail model, pricing and production schedule. Cheers, John
  3. F-5E lightweight pylon info needed

    Has this mod even reached operational aircraft yet? Cheers, John

  5. The Sea Fury is still available. Please send me a PM with your shipping info if interested. Cheers, John
  6. Trumpeter F-106?

    Go with option C.. The XMM intakes are very nice and are what I used. Cheers, John
  7. F-16 300 gal tank colour (NSAWC)

    Can't help you with the grey but the gold color is a surface treatment on the aluminum tank. It's called alodine and can leave varying degrees of intensity from very light to almost tan. You can do a Google image search for "alodine aluminum" and you will see the effect of alodine on aluminum. Cheers, John
  8. B-45 Tornado ejection seats question

    The ejection seat on the B-45 was as unique as it was on the F-86. The ejection seat for both types was designed by North American. Although they looked similar they were not the same seat. The B-45 ejection seat was only used on the B-45. Cheers, John
  9. Price returned back to $250 USD. Still a killer deal at that price. Cheers, John
  10. RF-4E phantom II retirement

    Great looking Phantoms. This thread should be over in the Research Corner forum though.... http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/forum/113-research-corner/ Cheers, John
  11. Hi, Kit is still for sale. Send me a PM. John
  12. wheel wells color on f-101

    Just to add to what Rick said. The inside of the MLG leg doors is red as well and the landing gear itself is painted silver. Cheers, John
  13. Skyblazers Sabre

    Hi Steve, The Skyblazers Sabres, 1954-55, were NMF. Skyblazers Sabres Cheers, John
  14. Still have it for sale. PM me with your peaked interest. Cheers, John
  15. 1/48 T-38C?

    The Wolfpack T-38 has much more accurate lines. The Trumpeter T-38 forward fuselage and canopy are completely buggered in my opinion. Cheers, John
