  1. The outer wing on the C-130 joins just outboard of the inboard engines and the dihedral angle from this point to the tip is constant in the case of a fully defueled aircraft. The outer wing is angled upward from this joint. Cheers, John
  2. I'll preface my answer by stating I have 10 years heavy maintenance and overhaul experience on the C-130/L-100. The wing thickness does indeed change from the inboard engines to the tips on the outer wings. A C-130 without any fuel on board will have a noticeable dihedral on the outer wings. The 2° 30' of dihedral is for a fully equipped but empty aircraft. When fully fueled there is a noticeable droop to the wings. The following photo illustrates an empty aircraft. Cheers, John
  3. Not much interest at the 50% off price.. Tough crowd Taking 10% more off the asking prices as I really need to get these moved out. Cheers, John
  4. I'll second the Northstar Models wheel recommendation. They are great! Cheers, John
  5. Bump back to page 1. Also reasonable offers will be considered. Cheers, John
  6. I'm building 3 GWH F-15's and the Aires #4336 exhausts for the Hasegawa kit fit fine. The diameter of the part that fits into the fuselage is a bit on the small side but this can be enlarged with tape or styrene stock. I'll post photos of my kit later. Cheers, John
  7. For Sale USS Missouri, WW II late war fit super detail package. I had the intention of building a late war USS Missouri and had acquired this kit and aftermarket to do so. I'm severely downsizing so this one has got to go. The Tamiya kit and Yankee Modelworks items are both discontinued and my asking price is reflective of what they are currently getting on the open market. With that mentioned, you would have to spend around $425 to get all of these items listed today. Not withstanding the discontinued items, I am pricing the remainder at more than 50% off. PayPal payment preferred and buyer pays shipping. No trades on this one. Please send a PM if interested. $250 USD plus shipping.

  8. That's a rather rude remark considering the effort BillS put into a relatively thorough and objective review. Cheers, John
  9. Hi All, I've had to redirect my modeling interests and therefore I've decided to concentrate on post WW II jets in 1/48 or smaller. The following items for sale are listed with all included aftermarket items. I have them priced at about 50% off retail on-line prices mostly obtained from Sprue Brothers and the aftermarket companies listed. Shipping will be from Calgary, Canada and PayPal payment is preferred. All prices are in US Dollars and do not include shipping. Since I am down-sizing I am not interested in trades at this time. Contact me via PM if you find anything interesting. I'll also be posting some ships, armor and decals etc. in the coming days. 1/72 Academy B-29A 'Enola Gay' kit 2154 $55 $49.50 Box open, sprues bagged.
