  1. Saw a USAF image yesterday of one of the F-15E StrikeEagle of the 492EFS returning home @ RAF Lakenheath after their 6 month tour flying combat operations over Syria,proudly wearing a green kill star for the shootdown of the Iranian made UAV over Syria back in June. This got me thinking are UAV's classed as legitimate kills nowdays?...I mean the classic shootdowns of Vietnam/Desert Storm/Balkans are pretty much a thing of the past now unless your some poor Syrian Fitter pilot who picked the wrong piece of airspace to be flying through. And i don't recall other Drone shootdown getting kill markings...maybe in this occasion it was just because it was the Sqn Commanding Officer who got the credit. Anyone have any thoughts on this without getting political and taking sides... And for the sake of the discussion F-15E 97-0219 492EFS Credit USAF.
  2. .

    Buy the Eduard rebox of the P-40N,it can be built as a P-40M too P-40K....good luck...kinda got my fingers crossed Eduard will rebox the K too
  3. Roden 1/144 C-5

    Had planned on getting one of these to go with my Roden C-141 and Revell C-17 as soon as possible after release....i think i may just wait awhile now and see how much various online stores start to discount them...when they don't sell at full retail
  4. 1/144 C-5 Galaxy decals

    Looking forward to what Kursad has in the works for the C-5... Hope Roden adds a bit more detail this time,as their Starlifter was alittle underwelming..but I bought one anyway as i doubt anyone else will do one. Don't suppose anyones done a cockpit for the Roden C-141 have they???
  5. Good luck with that...I'm 99.9% sure it never got printed. Teaser profiles were posted,but Afterburner Decals imploded before it ever when to print. Geoff has since done one or two VF-142 Cat's in his Furball range.
  6. For me maybe acouple of Vietnam era helo's Post Vietnam boxing with the later mods....well Air Cav Maybe one of these... Or maybe USAF... God help me...if Kittyhawk decide to give us a new UH-1N down the road
  7. Combat F-16's in 32nd scale

    Badly want to do sharkmouth Spang Blk30A in 1/32 Oh and some nice SEAD hunter/killer combo's F-4E/G, F-4G/F-16C...Love the first 1/32 F-4E/G sheet you did,just wish you'd give us some long nose Phantom love with the classic South East Asia scheme or the later wrapaound SEA. Cheers, Gary
  8. 1/32 Tamiya announcement ?

    Well Marcus Nichols just posted this on Facebook...guess we are getting a 1/32 F4U-1D/FG-1D.
  9. 366th FW F-15Es transit the UK.

    Been very busy putting warheads on foreheads if those mission tallies are anything to go by.... Thanks for sharing with us Gary
  10. CD72058 - B-52H Stratofortress

    I predict a bunch of B-52 builds appearing with this sheet..be it the AMT/Italeri kit or that new tool kit we are all waiting for. For me...the only way the sheet could have been improved was if a 49TES 'OT' option of 60-0049 was included...I'm a sucker for test jets...actually the main reason i picked up the Caracal Bone sheet was for the 'OT' option.... Nevermind maybe on a follow up sheet....cough,cough...
  11. CD72058 - B-52H Stratofortress

    Really looking forward to this sheet...Good BUFF sheets are hard to find thesedays unless you strike it lucky on Ebay. Hopefully it'll sell well enough for Kursad to give us another sheet or two of 1980's vintage G/H models plus Desert Storm options(yes these have been done before but they all seem to be OOP,plus the transitional period from SAC to ACC with the then new tailcodes. I may never have the space for a dozen or so B-52's but awesome new decals would be a great start.

    Me too!
  13. Request of Aftermarket Decal Makers

    Damned if you do,damned if you don't....the ongoing struggle of a decal manufacturer trying to please everyone...its never gonna happen. Builders/decal collectors just need to suck it up and diversify if its subject you really want,I'm still a committed 1/48-1/32 guy at heart but find myself buying more & more 1/72 and even 1/144 stuff simply because of the subject matter is only available in that scale from that manufacturer...Wolfpak Decals have done so many subjects in 1/72 that i would love to see in larger scale,but given the choice of downscaling or missing out completely...its a no brainer.
  14. Glad to see VF-45 options and i hope the images of the jets i gave you guys were of some use...Will defo pick the 1/48 sheets up when funds allow....still hope oneday you guys will do both the Tiger VF-45 jets in 1/32 cheers, Gary
