  1. Now we're cooking. I thought that the pylon was offset to the opposite side of the gun blister...good intel there. The top photo from the thread earlier this year is of the aft ECM pylon IIRC, it looks like one of the rear under-fuselage strakes is in the background. Cameron
  2. Maybe Jim Rotramel will see this and chime in. Working on a Hasegawa 1/72 F-111A during Constant Guard in 1972 and am trying to find more/any decent photos or drawings of the pylon used to mount the ALQ-87 ECM pod to the weapons bay door. Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. I've got a partial photo that suggests that the F-82 used a plywood seat similar to that found in the mid-late P-51B/C. Does anyone have any photo or reference documentation that can help me establish what seats were used in the F-82F/G Twin Mustang? TIA. Cameron
  4. I'd love to throw a nice SAC sash on my 1/144 Minicraft kit. Any word? Cameron
  5. Any developments on the 1/48 Vietnam B-57 sheet? Keen on 888. Cameron
  6. Thompson's Hobbies in Lakewood is closed now. The property is up for sale. We'll probably end up with another car wash or self storage. Really was surprised how long they lasted. 80% of the store was focused on crafting...it was Hobby Lobby long before there were any Hobby Lobby's around.
  7. Very much looking forward to the 1/144 B-58 and C-133 sheets. Any word on a 1/144 B-47 sheet and a reprint on the C-5 sheets?
  8. I'm looking for someone with the Classic Airframes Meteor NF.11/13 kit who would be willing to let me borrow the resin for a couple of weeks. After the Special Hobby NF14 kit came out I sold mine, and only now realize that the cockpits were almost identical and the resin from the CA kit would go a long way toward helping with the Special Hobby kit. Of course now I can't buy the kit for twice what I sold mine for. If possible, I'd like to borrow your set of resin and pressure cast a copy, then send back the originals to you. They'd be undamaged and I'd be happy to talk about some sort of co
  9. There was actually a very detailed discussion about the Blues transition from Hornet to Super Hornet on the Fighter Pilot Podcast featuring a former Blue Angels "Boss" who was also in charge of the transition team. It's a fascinating discussion and talks about all of the work that went into the project. The "Spring" is the Artificial Feel System. Prior to the F-18 all of the aircraft the Blues flew had manual trim...which allowed the pilots to dial in trim that would push them away from the formation if they relaxed the pressure on the control stick. This provid
  10. I understand and appreciate all the deficiencies in the Hobby Boss f-111 kits. That's why I haven't ever bought one. I was just struck that Reskit put in the time and effort to produce a cockpit set for a version of the F-111 that Hobby Boss never appeared to have released. I was planning on waiting for their cockpits for the Academy kits...for which I already have the full meal deal. Dmold TP II intakes, Reskit Exhausts, Scaledown wings and mainwheel well. I've got the old Verlinden update (yes I know), the Flightpath Pave Tack pod and picked up a lovely Eduard Brassin Pave Ta
  11. Did Hobby Boss actually produce a 1/48 F-111F kit? I've looked all over the webs and found no evidence of one. I've seen the F-111A, FB-111, F-111C and F-111D/E, but no F-111F or EF-111A? Just making sure I didn't miss something. Keenly waiting for Reskit to release cockpits for the Academy kits I've collected all the fixings for. Cameron
  12. I know that I'm tilting at windmills here, but I'd love to see reprints of the 1/144 C-5 Galaxy sheets and the 1/144 C-133 Cargomaster sheet. I've had an alert on ebay for them for almost two years (maybe a little longer) and have NEVER seen one come up. Even the really obscure retailers don't have any. They are unobtanium. Keep up the great work. Cameron PS any word on that 1/144 B-58 Hustler sheet?
  13. I need to update this. Matt Bole did in fact send a refund last week when he said that he had. Unfortunately he sent it to an incorrect email address. So some other guy on gmail has spent the last week wondering why in the hell he just got $31.50 from Hobbyworld USA. After trading a couple of messages last night...Matt sent me a full refund for the balance of my order this morning via Paypal. So we're good at this point.
  14. Many of you saw, read or commented on my post last Tuesday, May 24th regarding Matt Bole and Hobbyworld USA. I’m not interested in re-hashing that whole thing. But I am going to provide an update. First of all, there were some who doubted the veracity of my story…attached is a scan of the original invoice that came in the box with my order. For those not familiar, Matt highlights the items on the invoice that are on backorder. I didn’t do that. I did however write Matt’s phone number on the bottom of the invoice so that it was easier when I tried to contact him later to inquire about the
