  1. Hi Gang: I picked up Hobbyboss' new YF-23 and want to build it as a fictional German fighter. I'm having a real issue finding any aftermarket decals. Revell's Eurofighter includes a huge decal sheet but I really don't want to pay $30 or 40 dollars for the decals. Perhaps you guys have a better idea?

  3. You may be right. The Typhoon is one of today's birds but the YF-23 isn't. Maybe the mods can move the thread for me.
  4. Not a one. In fact there are few modern aircraft in my collection. I own a couple A-10s and Academy's 1/48 F-22A and that's about it. Plenty of WWII Luftwaffe, armor and sci-fi.

  6. A better bet would be our club's site: http://www.fpkclub.com/index.htm Erin has an extensive gallery. Tom
  7. Ok guys...I'm not the aircraft expert here and I could use some advise. What aftermarket parts would you recommend to update my 1/32 Trump Hog to a upgraded LASTE version?
  8. Hi Gang: Just picked up Trumpeter's 1/32 A10-A. I would like to update the kit to the post-LASTE version. I should tell you all, I'm new to aircraft so please bear with me. I've looked around and read several build-up articles looking for aftermarket part info. I know I will need the True Detail (formally Black Box) cockpit set as I understand the other options are for the Desert Storm version of the tub. I want to replace the kit's jammer with Flightpath's ALQ-131. Maybe pick up new TER Racks? A new Fueling Receptacle Door - part of the Cutting Exterior detail set - I think... Improve
  9. Hi Gang: Starting a new project this week. Picked this kit up from my LHS a few months back. After the last few resin kits, I'm looking forward to building a well engineered, highly detailed injection molded model. I may even build it straight from the box! Well, almost - I'll be adding seat belts, antennas and brake lines. I will be updating this thread with my progress. Revell's 1/72 BV P. 194 Do me a favor - take a look at the attached art and let me know what RLM color you think are being used. THANKS!
  10. Hi: I am a recent Luft 46 enthusiast and would love to get my hands on the Pend Oreille 1/48 Heinkel Lerche II. I know they have been out of production for some time and a willing to PAY TOP DOLLAR for the model. If you can help me, please feel free to contact me at: madk001@hotmail.com with your asking price. Thanks and I hope to hear from you! Tom
  11. Hi Guys: I recently purchased Planet Model's 1/48 Treibflugel. Great little kit, simple build - interesting subject! The included vac canopy has yellowed and I was wondering if there is a way to return the plastic to clear? Sunshine perhaps? I know it works for decals... Any suggestions?
  12. Thanks guys for all the help. Shhh - don't tell anyone, but I am really an armor guy and don't build a lot of aircraft but I am big believer in trying new subjects and ever since I saw the 111, I knew I had to build it. Plus, the more show categories you enter the more trophies you can win! That's not why I build, but it sure is motivating! I will order the canopies from Squadron today, thanks again for all the help. chukw: Your He.111 looks great! The weathering in superb and I love the turntable base. Is it Verlinden's? I didn't know it was that large...I might have to add that to the o
  13. Ok. Ordered that. Now I have noticed the cockpit blister is slightly different with the 20mm cannon. I think I need a new one...who makes a replacement?
  14. I am starting the ol' 1/48 Monogram He-111 kit and I wanted to include the 20mm cannon instead of the machine gun. Does anyone make an aftermarket replacement or maybe I can swipe one from another kit. Thanks! Tom
