    Revell GT-40 MKII questions

    Has anybody built this kit? I mean I'm sure there are those who have as the kit is 30 years old. I'm just asking if it's worth picking up. Does it compare evenly to the Fujimi kit or surpass it? Any tips would be helpful.

    New F-15E Nose Art Photos

    Probably more interesting than being in a Herc going across the Atlantic. Did it one time and I hated every minute of it.
  3. If that is similar in any way to the movie plot, I can tell ya right now Tom Cruise and Paramount Pictures will probably never be able to make movies again.

    He has a history of screwing people over if you look at some of the bad trader alerts over the years.

    Mk19's and helicopters

    The chunker. At least that's what I recall the 40mm being nicknamed. The M28 was an upgrade from the first batches of AH-1Gs that had the TAT-102 subarmament system that only utilized one 7.62mm gun. The M28 could, although it was rare, be used with two 40mm grenade launcher however it was more common to see it with two miniguns during Vietnam. A lot of this info can be found in Jonathan Bernstein's 'US Army AH-1 Cobra Units in Vietnam's book. Highly recommended for any snake fan. The M-28 was retained through the Cobra's Army service until the introduction of the ECAS (Enhanced Cobra Armament System) or AH-1E. It get really confusing with Cobras because of the Army's designation system changed. There's the AH-1S, or AH-1F (Fully Modernized). All of the get confusing but it's important to remember that basically any flate-plate canopy AH-1 will be outfitted with the M-197 Gatling gun. I have a few photos with the M-28 on them but this was basically an in-between timeframe. Here's a breakdown Floyd did that was converted to an image by another member on Hyperscale: As far as modelling go, it's the standard subarmament system on any AH-1G in any scale. 1/72 and the Revell 1/32 AH-1G are just about your only option right now as you'd have to convert a Fujimi AH-1J to a G to get it in 1/48. Check out one of @Floyd S. Werner, Jr. and his 1/32 Cobra build here: http://www.scale-rotors.com/galerie/2-attack-helicopters/2938-ah-1g-cobra-.html

    Hasegawa 1/48 F/A-18A - VMFA-115

    Cool. I have that microscale sheet, always wanted to do a collection of aircraft from the Libya strikes. Early Hasegawa hornets are still a bit overpriced in my view, with the newer Chinese companies making them I would have liked to have seen a little bit more of a drop before I picked on up. Anyway this looks like you're having some fun to yourself finally!
