  1. Hi All I'm after sprue G from the new tool Airfix 1/72 Lancaster B.III Dambuster kit. This sprue contains the bombay parts for carrying the bouncing bomb. If anyone has this sprue in their spares box, I'd be grateful if you're willing to part with it.
  2. Ah sorry I hadn’t updated this post. Sorted the issue by a combination of Eduard PE and Quinta Studios 3D Decals.
  3. Does anyone have the backseat instrument panel from the Trumpeter 1/32 F-14B Tomcat which is part M2 and am also after the LANTIRN controller part S6? Of course if anyone has gone all out and used a resin cockpit, i'd gladly take as many spare cockpit parts as possible including seats.
  4. Apart from knowing an F-16C from an F-16D, E, F, I,X that's about where my F-16 knowledge stops as far as knowing the differences between the different blocks. I have the Tamiya 1/32 F-16CJ Block 50 kit but I'm not a fan of plain grey schemes so I quite like some of the arctic schemes which seems to be mostly Block 30s. What are the major differences between a Block 30 and a Block 50 and what would I need to do if anything to the Tamiya kit?
  5. Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere or even here, only just stumbled across this post. I've read a lot of comments and review about the spine of the Revell 1/32 F/A-18E and subsequent F model being too flat or the outer shoulders being too sharp. I've been looking at a number of builds and review of this kit and to be honest it's very difficult to determine if it is actually right or wrong. There's never going to be a perfect kit however comparing images of the kit and this photo, I find it very hard to see if the kit is actually wrong....
  6. Anyone know why Eduard discontinued their line of FABRIC Remove Before Flight tags? https://www.eduard.com/Eduard/Remove-Before-Flight-FABRIC-1-48.html?cur=2&listtype=search&searchparam=Remove Before Flight I've had horrible experience with the Steel ones and the first time I tried the FABRIC ones on an F/A-18F, I thought they'd nailed the look of an RBF tag.
  7. Am after the decal sheet from the Revell 1/32 F/A-18E, more specifically all the decals for the VX-9 Vampires scheme. https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/1/6/1/975161-71-instructions.pdf Would be grateful for any help.
  8. Looking for these two 1/32 F-14 decal sheets: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/cam-32-112-f-14d-tomcat--931033 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/superscale-international-32-116-f-14-tomcat--1241256 Am also after the VX-9 Vampires decal sheet from the Revell 1/32 F/A-18E if anyone is willing to part with it: https://www.britmodeller.com/reviews/revell/32/04994f18e/f18m.JPG
  9. I'm also looking for these two 1/32 F-14 sheets if you have them? https://www.scalemates.com/kits/cam-32-112-f-14d-tomcat--931033 https://www.scalemates.com/kits/superscale-international-32-116-f-14-tomcat--1241256
  10. I checked out as many Microscale sheets and there's nothing. There is one sheet that has a similar tail band but it's way off for what I'm after for a VX-4 jet. I have just checked my stash of decals and I have the Fightertown Decals Combined test squadrons sheet which has a VX-4 Phantom on there with the black and white XF codes and at least half of the stars and bars so I will order a second sheet to make up the difference. Although sized for a 1/48 Phantom, the stars and bars can be adjusted to fit a 1/48 tomcat even if I have to mask and spray the blue and red bands first. I can scroun
  11. Anyone know where I might get a decal sheet in 1/48 or 1/72 of VX-4 Evaluator F-14A Tomcats in the original white and gull grey retro scheme with the white and black tail and nose codes? There's plenty of sheets with the black bunny and overall gull grey markings out there, i've looked so please don't suggest any of these. I'm only interested in the classic retro scheme markings if there are any out there.
  12. Wouldn’t necessarily need to add Quikboost ESC if you use the EA-18G Growler kit which already has the ECS Bard stacks molded on. Although the Quickboost sets are nicer. I used them a few year ago on the Revell Super Hornet. Although the Block II jets had them from new, many if not all of the Block I jets had the retro fitted to help reduce the heat signature and solve many of the heat damage issues.
  13. Although I mentioned the Hasegawa kit, I guess it’s going to get harder to decide on a receiving kit as the new F/A-18F and G are just around the corner by Meng and Hobby Boss. I digress, this is an F-15 thread!! 😂
  14. Could these IPs be used on a Hasegawa 1/48 Super Hornet to do a Block III aircraft?
  15. What about the outboard wing pylons? Haven't seen them yet on the EX but certainly on the Saudi SE versions which shares come commonality.
