    I like military, mainly aircraft, but also armor and ships. Usually 1/72nd scale, other scales, too.

  1. Patchcraft Hobby in Sioux City, Iowa. It's still there and I've known the owner for over 50 years. It likely won't be there too much longer, though, unless he sells it when he retires. I still go once or twice a year and have a great time with him. Tom
  2. So sorry to hear this, Steve! Get well soon and no worries about the site. Your health is paramount. Tom
  3. Hope you eventually (emphasis on eventually) downsize this sheet to 1/72nd.
  4. My order arrived and oh, my, VERY nice decals, as always! Kursad, I am so glad you are in the business! You do such great work! Tom
  5. Would the radar reflectors be integral to the jet and retractable like the F-22?
  6. Well, phooey! I had designs on their 1/144 CFM-56 engines for more modeling ideas and their B-52D/E/F models. I have their B-52H model, but it's an early bird and the later decal version of today's birds doesn't include the longer fuselage from the Phase VI upgrades. Guess it's time to look here and there.

  8. Thanks for that info! I really appreciate it. I wish they'd they would have sold Testors to someone else, too. I really like the MM paints and don't have a good replacement. I may have to try True North or someone similar.
  9. PS What I wrote is what I've heard about the situation and I'm happy to hear more and better information from someone better informed.
  10. So, Rustoleum bought Testors. However, apparently, they couldn't deal with Testors method of making paint, which supposedly was make a batch of a color or colors (55 gallon drum(s) and make more once they ran out. hence, they discontinued Testors. Also, they didn't think it was profitable. Personally, I'd love to buy Rustoleum and force them to make Testors, but... If I could, some head would roll... Tom
  11. I was at Vance AFB, OK, when this raid happened. One of the Student Squadron instructors was an F-111 pilot and knew the crew that was lost. Quite an event, too. Tom
  12. The pod was fielded on the 174th Fighter Wing's F-16s for about a day in Desert Storm, but the strong vibrations and the pylon problems (alignment and stability) meant that accuracy problems prompted its removal the first day. Looking at Desert Storm loadouts (https://www.dstorm.eu/pages/loadout/f-16.html), apparently the 174th used a single AGM-65D along with the belly GPU-5, but quickly transitioned to other loads. It does mention that F-16s carried AGM-65s, but I suspect only one, as a three round loadout was very draggy, even for the A-10. Not sure about after Dese
  13. I see a couple I need,in multiples, and then there're the two or three others I need. Time for a package buy...
