  1. Hardcore History. Hours... Days... Weeks... MONTHS worth of material, which is perfect for my glacial building pace. Also, Fighter Pilot Podcast for sure, JRE, Jocko Podcast especially episodes where he interviews various authors - riveting stuff. -Ryan
  2. Were you able to source these, or are you still looking? I have a set that I'm not going to use.
  3. I got a sheet for a B-1 photo, too, LOL. I have a passion (obsesssion?) for scouring the corners of the internet looking for great photos of obscure things like SAC aircraft and facilities in particular, so I'm just elated to have others who apparently share my affliction. As for Kursad, he is very generous indeed. I feel pretty spoiled to begin with just by virtue of the subject decals offered. -Ryan
  4. That is a far better image than those I submitted. I'd like to humbly forfeit my prize to Gator52. -Ryan
  5. These are not my photos, but these are probably the best I've ever seen to illustrate the Malmstrom tail flash in any detail. It was one of the nicest looking in SAC in my opinion, but unfortunately one of the most elusive too since this era of the 301st was so short-lived. -Ryan
  6. Should be a 32. Looks a little smaller since it is set back further on that outboard pylon without the BRU55.
  7. Just ordered your GBU-32's to model this jet last week, LOL... Guess I know where to get my BRU55's from now! https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/82/170607-N-FE442-006_(35183312286).jpg/1280px-170607-N-FE442-006_(35183312286).jpg
  8. Not my photo, but from Bill Word on Flickr. I only now realize that the keeper is clutching lightning bolts like the SAC fist, only with wheat stalks instead of olive branches... AWESOME!
  9. Threw this suggestion out a couple years ago, and I'm so excited to see it come to production, thank you, sir!
  10. Excellent, Dave! I'll be looking forward to them. You just haaad to post this a few days after I was lusting over those Blacklions bomb trucks from OIR. -Ryan
  11. These look really nice. You say they will be available in 1/48th as well, any idea how those will be priced? Also, any chance of a MXU-735 nose plug being designed for the kit? Thanks! -Ryan
  12. I think the F-4 Phantom is one of the best looking jets ever, but when you launch it from a carrier with the nose strut extended it looks corny as hell. I'll echo the sentiment about the F-15's spindly landing gear. Great looking jet, but you can't skip leg-day.
  13. This is something I struggled with, too. Eventually through persistence I ended up scoring a very nice 72" wide glass counter-type display case on Craigslist for $250. The counter style is what worked best for my space, but I would often see the vertical styles as well. It's even lighted, and allegedly belonged to another modeler who had it in his home so it was in really good shape. It did take a lot of watching. Lots of tabs were opened over months of time and 90% of them were closed with a definite "nope", but eventually it worked out. Now I just have to fill in all that be
  14. I wish somebody would paint a Typhoon like that. Maybe Germany could bring back a Norm 81 type scheme. I love the lines of the Typhoon, but operational jets are all just... So. Damn. Boring. 😴 -Ryan
  15. How do the engines differ between the A and C models? Could you use aftermarket parts for the C (like the awesome KA Models exhausts) and still pull off an A model? Excellent choice on the 5th FIS Eagle, by the way. They were the best looking of those ADC F-15's in my opinion. -Ryan
