  3. pics/info for American MiG-29's

    I am not sure that the USAF ever fielded an aggressor Squadron of Fulcrums. I know they completely disassembled the airframes they got from Moldavia. I also know that they (and other NATO forces) flew training missions against Luftwaffe Fulcrums. But, I think there are only two airworthy Fulcrums in the US and both are in private hands that I know of. This article may help though: https://www.airspacemag.com/military-aviation/truth-about-mig-29-180952403/?page=3 HTH, Rick

    Ernie, I have a 1 72 Hasegawa P-3C (kit #K15), that is complete nib, parts still in bags. I will also throw in some Brassin 72nd Aim-9B missiles, since I only model in 48th.

  10. HpH Models 1:18 MiG-23BN Flogger - 2018 Release

    Just using it to create the masters, I believe. My question is why 1/18??? We desperately need an accurate MiG-23/27 family in quarter scale and I'd be ALL over even a decent resin model! Especially since building even a somewhat accurate version is going to require lots of resin corrections anyway.
  11. H-21 Shawnee "Flying Banana" Blue/White FS number?

    According to the Caracal instructions, the blue is FS15183. Humbrol reportedly makes the color under Hu25, XtraColor X146 & Tamiya XF8 (although that is a flat color). HTH, Rick

    I understand what your intent is and believe me, if I were in your shoes, I would be plenty pissed too. However, when it comes to these flame wars, usually everybody comes away looking "bad," fair or not. It is sad that there are people in this world that can't do what you and others can, so they think it a viable alternative to just take what never was or never will be theirs. But, I am a firm believer that the cream always rises and that someone with your talents, will come out on top in the end. I can assure you that if you produce anything in my chosen scale (48th), I will support you 100% (I am waiting the Bronco with bated breath btw). Just as I have the other cottage industries, that produce wonderful products.

    And please pray tell, what does someones' knowledge or know-how have to do with all the back and forth about who stole what or who didn't pay agreed upon fees etc., etc.? The fact is this has NO place here, as there is no way that these issues are going to be resolved here. I am sympathetic to those members of our community that may have had their intellectual property stolen, mis-appropriated or otherwise hi-jacked, but the fact is that it is clear that there are forums for that sort of thing and it usually involves a judge, court or some other legal entity. This type of "forum" will never result in any agreement between the parties and it only is salacious "gossip" here. Again, I want to reiterate, I am not taking sides as I do not know all the facts of this matter. My opinion is simply that all this mud-slinging will only serve to bring all relevant parties down to a common level, which I don't think is a positive outcome for any involved.

    WOW, I cannot remember when I have been so thoroughly confused after reading forum postings. What I can say with certainty is that I don't think this is the place to air all this dirty laundry. I personally don't know who did what to whom, but there appear to be some VERY hard feelings over this and there is NO way it will ever be resolved through forum postings. In many ways this reminds me strongly of the controversy surrounding Buff Master, Super Bug et al. So I can assure you all that I will steering WELL clear of any model kit(s) that may arise from this abortion of a project. I also must reiterate that I don't believe this is the appropriate place for all these recriminations. And absolutely NOT the place for Nationalistic jingoisms of any ilk. Rick
