  1. We need that new CH-47 to be modified to a MH-47....big time... Jeff
  2. Modern Viper Guide 2nd Edition

    Pics of the new "I-Pad" on the lower IP panel between the pilots legs on Blk 30's? Jeff
  3. F-101b Vodoo Revell 1/72

    Just started checking this thread out, awesome work! I have one to build myself...great reference work! Jeff
  4. FB-111A in 1/72 by Hasegawa

    Yes, the astrotracker was a cool backup system. I built my FB-111A in 48th. The tracker was such a detail rich feature, I just glossed over it like you did, it would be a separate model in itself. Great job on your Dark Dark. Jeff
  5. Hasegawa 1/72 OV-1B Mohawk - Options?

    The B is the best start to make a D, because the wings are the same length and the SLAR is the same for the most part as well. The rest you have to modify yourself or try and find one of the rare Cobra Co. kits. There was an article how to do it in an old Scale Modeler magazine in the early 80's if you can find it... Jeff
  6. We need a 1/48 MH-60R

    We need an entire new series of 48th scale Blackhawks, across the board, Army, Navy, AF, CG... Jeff
  7. P-3 Orion sheet ideas

    Low vis for sure, anything that may be unique markings wise... Jeff
  8. 1/72 VS-32 decals for S-3?

    Lotsa high vis S-3 decals in 72nd, very few low vis...I guess when the Hasegawa kit came out they went wild, then forgot about it because nobody has Hoover love but a few of us weirdos. Jeff
  9. Agreed, I thought it was gonna be 48th, given previous discussions with my fellow LEO.... Jeff
  10. Michigan ANG 100th anniversary

    Got my sheet, thought I'd ask this to help guys here, what should be the width for the invasion stripes, or are we winging it so to speak? Thanks. Jeff
  11. Minicraft T-34A/B Mentor

    Can't wait to build the Lima Lima bird I got to fly in 20+ years ago... Jeff
  12. R/MQ-1?

    Go 147th!!! Jeff
  13. Source for 1/48th USN Pilot Heads

    Fred, if you use the head from one of the later C model boxing F-16's, the block 50's, you'll be fine. The early model ones (A,B,C,D's) all have the old helmets, the block 50's (C,D's) have the 55's on the sprue with the newer incorrect wheels, and LAU missile rails. There are 2 sprue per kit, as long as you have the right one. Jeff
  14. Source for 1/48th USN Pilot Heads

    Same helmets for both, HGU'-55P, AF is painted gray with gray leather sides to keep the visor from scratching, Navy tapes over theirs with white reflective tape and black leather sides. Both use the JHMCS which is gray. The USMC puts a cloth BDU style cover on their helmets sometimes. The only different USN helmets are the 68's with the weird visor, and helo drivers which I'm not familiar with. Hope I helped. Jeff
  15. Revell F/A-18E Super Hornet questions

    No need for an aftermarket cockpit, it's pretty good as is actually, all it needs is a JHMCS sensor and maybe a pilot. As for the vents, sorry, I'm at work or I'd be able to show you. Good kit to start off with, good luck. Jeff
