  1. Forums are working again.

    Can we fix the search function??? Tim
  2. Yes, I'm talking about the Academy kit. Tim
  3. Ditto! I like Ramon was an ex crew chief and let's start, shall we. Exhausts are totally shaped wrong, APU exhaust opening is in the wrong place, no pitot tube mounting "bumps", the fuselage contours near the tailboom section are way off, nose is misshapen, no cockpit floor chin bubble structures, pilot's seats don't set down in the stroke wells, H-bar is wrong, no camber to the tail pylon camber fin, rotorhead is pitiful, no rotating scissor assemblies, instrument panel interfering with the windshield, whole cockpit lacks proper detailing, gaps everywhere around the cabin, no broom closets on the crew cabin walls. And that's just off the top of my head! Tim
  4. Lone Star Models bought out Cobra Company and all his sets. The last update on the Cobra Company sets he has available says "9-6-17". That's almost 2 months ago. When I emailed him last month, I got no reply. For somebody that has been in business as long as he claims, that's not very good business practice. What's up with him? Is he sick or lazy or what??? I know, I know, before you say it, he says CC had over 50 molds and it takes time, but come on! It's as if no one is even there at all. This is ridiculous. No one has the sets anymore and he's the only source, but no joy on his end. I have a veterans memorial build that is waiting for 2 CC sets to be rereleased and until that happens, his build is on hold! Very, very disappointed in LSM right now!!!!! Tim

  10. Kitty Hawk's newest 1/35th scale helicopters- AH-6J and MH-6J

    That project was cancelled because the 160th wanted to be anal and withdraw their support! Believe me, I was looking forward to that book!!! Tim

  12. Kitty Hawk 1/48th scale Huey

    I could definitely go for a new tooled 1/35 Huey, Cobra, Kiowa (not D model) and especially a new tooled H-60. (Not a rebox either! Sounds like a Christmas list!!! Lol Tim
  13. Kitty Hawk's newest 1/35th scale helicopters- AH-6J and MH-6J

    Oh yeah, some 1/35 160th SOAR aircrew in Somalia gear would be awesome. Both little birds and hawks pilots and crew chiefs. I'll be buying this kit for sure! Tim
  14. Good searchwords on ebay

    Don't go to Google and type in plus models. Just sayin!!! (Now of course, people will) Tim
  15. It's 2017 and the Army still can't decide on uniforms

    Coming from an 82nd airborne guy who went through jump school to EARN!! my beret, I totally 100% agree. If you didn't earn the beret, you shouldn't be wearing one. Go and put back on your LEG CAP!!! As for the dress uniforms, sorry, it looks to WW2ish. Stay with the dress blues. I think they look sharp! Tim
