  1. I know! I would love to see 'Punk's Fight' or 'Debt of Honor' made into a movie. (methink the Navy wouldn't want an accurate movie from Ward Carroll though )
  2. Plus that whole thing of us being able to nuke them five ways back to the Hun invasion might put them off a bit...
  3. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Dawn_(2010_film) Yes, the adolescent famous on Nickelodeon, if it follows the plot of the old one, wield a Type 95 against Chinese soldiers in the Ghettos of Michigan. Wow.
  4. Just looked it up, and I have to say that it actually is pretty logically designed given the space constraints. I don't really see what's all that complex about it. It's an unorthodox arrangement but it's not as convoluted or mind-bending as some make it seem like.
  5. This excites me for some reason. Maybe use a OA-4M for a base and add some IR-guided Zunis...:D
  6. Pretty hard for an aircraft to not look good with black/yellow tails and the skull-and-crossbones. Go for it! Also, the customized figures look really nice. that one guy looks like he's drinking from a 2L bottle though. :)
  7. Yes, Macross, and more specifically, Macross Plus.
  8. Well there's something you don't see everyday; a Hornet with the tgt'ing pod on the centerline.
  9. This is looking simply freaking sweet! the detail you're putting into this is just amazing, you should almost make the top removable to see all that detail. Another note, doesn't the Bofors use a 6-round magazine? Never mind, forgot what it looked like.
  10. The 28 has clipped canards too? I'm looking at the photos on wikipedia and the GBU-28 looks like a plain-Jane Paveway-III guidance unit.
  11. Okay, first off you need a GBU-24 and a GBU-10. Lengthen the GBU-24 by cutting and splicing a 7.1cm-long, 8mm OD tube. Then cut off the rear fin section (just fore of the fins) and glue on the fin section of the GBU-10. Leave off the GBU-24's hardpoint saddle and you have a 28.
  12. I more side with this. If there is something glaring with the kit that doesn't look right, then I won't buy it or I'll try to correct the problem. But little details and subtle curve differences don't bug me too much. then again, I haven't been intimate with these machines as some of you have, so my opinion might be skewed by inexperience.
  13. Not quite as bad as was predicted. Only a little more than the current Tamiya Black Nights boxing, so factor in the hours saved scribing lines and all the other work (and possibly resin correction/detail sets not needed), seems like a great price. I believe forecasts were as high as $300 for this?
  14. Reflecting as in relaying. Basically, its like the XFA-27 from Ace 2/X or the 5/0's FALKEN with a glass canopy; the pilot sits above the cockpit tub on an elevated ejection seat with the tub comprised of flatscreen displays linked to cameras on the aircraft's underside to allow a much greater field of view as well as extend the scope of the HUD. A 'bridge' replaces the forward IP with critical instruments and maximizing view of the floors. And about your cute little witty statment; Get yo mind owt o' da gudder boi!
  15. The Academy Slammers have very nice, thin molding on the fins. Not to the standard of whatever resin/photo-etch you originally asked for, but the OIF Academy Strike Eagle comes with two Bravo and four Charlie (but only stencil data for two each). @caiotfjr, the Slammers in the RoG Eurofighter only have fins on three sides, as they're designed to fir in the recesses on the underside, can't use them with rails.
  16. This I'll be following. How does Hase deal with the surround-display cockpit? (the floor and sides of the tub reflecting whats below and around the aircraft when power's on?)
  17. I was very pleasantly surprised during my latest trip to the LHS. The models section as almost literally overflowing with aircraft, among them several 1:72 RoG jets. the choices I was considering for postwar turbine-power were: F-14D---$29.98 F/A-18E---$19.98 F-22---$22.98 Can someone please explain to me why an older tool is up to 50% more expensive than a couple of much more recent toolings? the Delta doesn't even come with much for ordinance, just AAMs, so why the bigger price? Simply plastic volume? It was the 'last cruise' boxing though. On a more positive note, I resoundly support t
  18. Oh, and BTW, that last paint is epic win.
  19. Isn't the base color a very light, beige tan?
  20. I'm sorry, but those new parts are inexcusably pathetic. The level of detail on the bombs is laughable, especially compared to the bombs in the Rafale B kit. And the LANTIRN? The laughably shaped adapter pylon aside, the LANTIRN has only one panel line and next to no detail. Again, even the basic F-15E kit comes with a LANTIRN that is far better. Dragon's 1:144 LANTIRN is better.
  21. Anyone know how to secure a Slam-Eagle decal spread?
  22. Yeah, but Acad's is completely up to date and includes period weapons. just sayin'.
  23. I agree on the EF-2000 in 1:144. Built the one they already have, and while it wasn't horrible, it needs aaaalot. Mainly I'd like to see a comparable cockpit, slight alteration of the canards, and the inclusion of decent weapons and decal choices.
