  1. Fujimi has also produced a kit in 1/72 for the F-16N and with a much better and with more options, decals sheet.
  2. Monogram's Tigers are still excellent kits to consider however, you can only built OOB the first ones that the Adversary units had at their disposal. I think it was near the end of the 80's when they introduced the F-5s with the 'shark-nose' random and the LERXs on the wings. For these later ones you will need AFVs excellent kits. By the way, you can improve the landing gear/speed brakes bays with Aires resin sets. I have done so, on one of my Monogram Tigers. The challenge here is to rescribe the Monogram kits. Too many curves and the aft fuselage near the engines' exhausts has raised rivets. Similar situation with Italeri's 1/72 Tigers. They have a very soft plastic and the scale doesn't really help the rescribing.
  3. WOW! it's been 50 years! I'm in with two 1/32 models. Probably a TA-4J and a F-5E with VF-126 paint schemes/markings, though I have to admit making the Skyhawk's marking in 1/32 can be challenging. I only got an inkjet printer.

    Yeap. That's the NSAWC birds! The cockpit/cabin is a model by itself! Fantastic job Oliver.

    Great samples of work. I had a second thought on whether the M60/M16s that Dragon gives would look OK. However, after reading your comment, I obviously need to find some 1/32 weaponry.

    Many Thanks for your reply. I'll try to find items such as the ones you're mentioning, to compare them with what Dragon has in the figures' box.

    Amazing work!! I really like the colours "blending" effect you have achieved Oliver, in the cockpit/cabin. Just one question; I have a 1/32 Revell Huey and some 1/35 Dragon 'Vietnam-era' figures, and I was thinking of making a diorama with both, however, I was wondering do you think that it is possible to combine these two (perhaps the figures will look a bit small....)? Keep up the good work!!!

    Ridiculous pricing on the bay

    Next time I find something that interests me on Ebay and has a ridiculously high shipping cost, I'll give you the web page to see it. What I wrote earlier is exactly what the seller has told me. He had set a specific shipping cost and Ebay changed it, almost tripling it.

    Ridiculous pricing on the bay

    I have experienced a similar case in the past and when I asked the seller, he told me that Ebay had automatically changed the shipping cost he had placed. As someone said earlier, Ebay is also getting fees now from the shipping cost of a kit.

    You mean VFC-111 (redesignated from VFC-13) or, VF-111?
  12. It's all about money nowadays. If someone sees there is an opportunity for profit, believe me, they will give it a second thought!
  13. I agree. It's the photo and title that prompted me to read the article.
  14. I just focused on the title and photo!
  15. Hi All, I was just checking my inbox and when I signed off I saw the following article. http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/f-14-tomcat-the-navy-fighter-it-wishes-it-could-bring-back-24045 Is this just another spread of fake news?
