  1. I have an idea... ( I know, before anybody says "don't hurt yourself, go take a nap")... Bandai's Y-Wing is much more refined than F-Toys. BUT F-Toys Y-Wing is a bit LARGER than Bandai's. So here's what I'm considering... Making a Y-Wing "HEAVY" Attack ship... Using the larger engines from F-Toys with the Bandai body. Making the F-Toys main cabin larger with a quad gun, BUT using Bandai's smaller cockpit glazing, (mucho modified) with a 2 person crew. Also because I'll be enlarging the forward section, having 4 torpedo tubes instead of 2. This where I'm at right now. It's an idea, and I'm getting my kits in place. In the STAR WARS Universe why not... WHAT SAY YOU BUILDERS!!!
  2. WOW! I forgot about this. And Yes Kevin, I've already done this very thing. I was at the local Hobby Lobby while my wife got something she "needed"... I saw the kit there. I waited until last Sunday, when I cut out the coupon, and Monday I bought it (Actually bought 2 because I had 2 coupons). I may buy a lighting kit and light the engines up! Thanks for checking the thread and replying! MattP
  3. Quixote74, I'm talking about the large intakes just aft of mid-wing. In the supplied pic, there's only one visible. It's the largest of the intakes. As for the late model type. thank you for the "Su-15TM-Flagon F" designation. That's a great help in defining just what I'm looking for! Thanks for the reply! Matt
  4. I have a bunch of pix of the Su-15 Flagon. What I need to know is on the later models, the large intake 'scoops' that are present on the top and bottom of the aft air frame sides, in some of the pix, are still on the bottom in the later models? I'm doing a 1/144 scale conversion of Trumpeters F-8II on a bet. See pic... Thanks in advance for any assist! Matt
  5. There's a new tool Hawk out in 1/72 scale: https://starshipmodeler.biz/shop/index.cfm/product/8521_59/172-hawk-mk-ix-space1999.html Also there's a Photo-etched fret to got with it: https://starshipmodeler.biz/shop/index.cfm/product/8525/172-hawk-mk-ix-cockpit-brian-johnson-concept.html HTH MattP
  6. I have the "1/1000 BLOCKADE RUNNER & 1/350 MILLENNIUM FALCON" Model set. I would like to make an even trade for my "1/350 Millennium Falcon" for your unwanted 1/1000 Blockade Runner. I am in the U.S. (18517 Zip Code). If you are, interested in making the trade, please let me know.
  7. Hoops, You ROCK!!! Thanks for the major assist!!! Matt
  8. I'm looking for the airfield planking that believe came with ICM's "1/72 Modern Soviet Weapons". If anybody has some and would be willing to part with them, I have quite a bit of 1/72 scale A/C kits + resin stuff that I am more than happy to trade or pay for them. GREAT Thanks in advance for any help! MattP
  9. Awe CRAP!!! I found a large pic of Typhoon 'F=Faith' making a turn to port and I see a red Maltese cross with some type of insignia in the middle. I'll have to look for one of those. I'm sure when find the rest of the F.3 decals... Found them! Not sure which kit they came from (they're a bit chopped up), but they're of F.3 ZE736... WITH the Maltese cross with the insignia... Will see what else I'm going to need. I'm still searching, but does anybody have a decent 'side-view' of one of the 4 air frames?
  10. I have decals from a failed Tornado F.3 project. I'm going to cobble a 'set' together. The pix of the Falklands 1435 Flight seem to be the same red Maltese cross on a white shield background. I want to do H (As in Hope). I'm now thinking of a doing "war-load" of the outer pylons with AIM132s and the conformal sets with AIM-120's along with a set of 'drop-tanks'... Opinions??? TIA MattP
  11. Thanks Dmanton300! I'm going to go with AIM-132s on the out most pylons 2 drop tanks, and AIM-120s for the rest. I seem to have seen a pic somewhere with that type of load-out. MattP
  12. Does anybody know what the standard load-out of the Typhoon GR4s that patrol the Falkland Islands is? Is it AIM-9's and AMRAAMs? Or is it AIM-132 ASRAAMs and Meteors" Amy help is greatly appreciated!!! MattP
  13. Thanks Murph and Hoops!!! Looks like Dark Sea Grey it is! They're going to be slung under a Swedish JAS-39. Thanks again! MattP
  14. Does anybody have pix of a live RBS-15 Gungnir ASM, or can you point me to a site that does? I have pix of the missile with a black nose, and a dark sea grey body. Is that the marking of a LIVE unit? Or is the actual live missile have a white/light grey body? Thank you in advance for your help! MattP
