  2. ok so since it is getting hard to find the monogram/revell F-5e jets in 1/48 scale i know AFV club still makes them but which kit that they make now would work to build a F-5e like do they all have the same parts?

  3. ok every body time for a update i was waiting for a new copy of the daco tomcat book because mine went missing so now that i have a new copy of the book tomorrow i will start building the vents on the left nose part . ill post a picture when i get them done. and the cockpit i orded and should be at my local hobby shop soon. but i have a question aires makes landing gear bays for the tamyia f-14 in 1/32 scale do you think it would fit my revell tomcat?

  4. OK so i am about ready to paint my air wolf model and i found out from one of the stars that was on the show that air wolf wasn't black at all it was actually a dark grey green color that was solid not metallic in any way. so i was thinking of using a RLM color maybe RLM70 or what would u guys suggest for a dark grey green color?

  5. don't worried ill post more pictures soon i am working on the gas gun vent grill area. i am building that area. i hope to get the get don in time for decmeber. to day i spent most of my time figuring out how am i going to light this model and what lights it has and what it has to do

  6. ok so i am going to make the HUD turn on. thanks Andrew for the help. and for every thing else i am going to make the engines light up using flickering orange and yellow LEDs and i will even have a sound chip in the jet so u can hear the engines start. and for the lights on the out side of the plane they will be on a separate system so i can turn them on when ever.

  7. ok so i have figured out how to add the

    Navigation lights

    Anti-collision lights

    Position lights. on the tom cat i will even try to make the engines light up but what in the cockpit be lit up and how will the HUD projection part be lit.if any tomcat pilots on on ARC can u help me with this idea?

  8. no i wanted a digital copy of the book so if i lost the paper book i can look at the scanned one and keep modeling. i have this problem with my daco tomcat book wick i lost yesterday and i cant model tomcats un till i get a new copy

  9. ok so the tomcat i am doing has the 2 hole gas gun vent door. but i cut out the grill area. so now i need to build that area so dose any body have a picture that shows that part really clearly so can see how many grill vent lines there are on that part?

  10. ok so since i have till December to get this bird done. i am going to add the fallowing things to it.....

    a resin 1/32 cockpit yes i know they are made for tamyia but i am sure i can find on that fits

    photo etch for the inside and out side from eduard

    resin wheels and fuel tanks from wolf pack just need to find out what style main wheels the top gun movie cats had

    so for the landing gear i might combine metal and plastic because i want the front lit

    and stuff like the main landing gear bays will have wire to make them look right or should i buy the resin ones made for the tamyia cat and use those?

    all of the vents on the air plane will have them added so u can see though

    and pilots will be added but can any body help me with how they would be painted around the 1986 time frame like oxygen mask flight suit and the like

    and thank u every body for the help in this
