  1. I have a package of the Flightpath antennas and thought they looked a wee on the large side as well. I'll scale down like you did for your Sentry. And your E-8 is looking great. You're so close to having it done.
  2. Nice review Paul. I'm a little disappointed in the obvious fit issues but still plan to buy/build a couple of these kits. Looking forward to part 2 of your review.
  3. Thanks Ray. I'll punch some out in 2 and 3 mm and see which conform closest to what Rob suggested. BTW - your RAF Sentry looks spot on. Great job! Don
  4. Super nice build. What did you use as a panel line wash against the dark blue paint? Very effective.
  5. Out-friggin-standing Derek! I'm trying to whip this puppy into submission myself and was ready to toss it on the shelf of shame but you've rekindled my desire to see it through to the end. And your build is every bit as good as anything Carl has done.
  6. Thanks Rob. This gives me a starting point.
  7. Completely agree about them not being Sigint antennas. The Rivet Joints and Cobra Balls all bristle with these antennas down the spine.
  8. I'm trying to find out what the dimensions are of the small dish antennas on the spine of the RC-135 Rivet Joint aircraft. They carry five of them. You can see them in this photo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signals_intelligence_operational_platforms_by_nation#/media/File:RC-135_Rivet_Joint.jpg FlightPath UK calls them Sigint Antennas https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/FHP72221. I've done a google search and the only thing I can come up with is some type of Satcom antenna but no idea how big they are. I'm looking for the diameter of the dish so I can punch out a bunch of the discs in 1/144 for all the RC-'s and other large elint types that I have in the pipeline.
  9. I preordered a pair of each (4). Gotta keep my budget in check as well.
  10. And will be the first one I build! Great sheet sir.
  11. Absolutely no problem Kursad. Still lots of great subjects on this sheet that I'll still have to decide which three I want to build.
  12. Awesome! One of those looks like the bird from Strategic Air Command when they load up and move the entire wing to Yokota. Like Scott, I'm easily in for 3 sheets. Another grand slam home run Kursad. You wouldn't have the time and room to add a white CONTINENTAL for the blue/yellow tail band of this bird would you? Looks like you have the other marking included that we could piece together. https://antarctica.recollect.co.nz/nodes/view/30541
