  1. Thanks Jim for weighing in. Also thanks for posting your articles on the TP II intakes and astrotracker.
  2. Thanks guys for the input. I couldn't figure out where this supposedly extra 2 feet was in the fuselage length so I asked. Maybe it's an extra two feet over the F-111B which also had the larger wings. In any case, I'll just use the Academy fuselage as is and not worry about it. The Academy fuselage has enough issues to start without having to insert a scale 2 feet into it.....
  3. I've always loved the look of SAC's early FB-111's in the SIOP camo. I'd like to do one up in 1/48 and was curious if the Academy kit has the proper dimensions. I've read where the FB was 2 feet longer than the standard TAC F-111's. Does anyone know where the additional 2 feet were included when GD built them and does the Academy FB-111 include the extra 2 foot fuselage length? I did a commission build of the F-111A many years back which included all the Paragon resin as well as Verlinden bits so I'm sort of aware of the basic kits shortcomings.
  4. Have you tried to contact Joseph directly to see if he might still have a soft copy on file? I realize he's out of the helo resin/decal business but he may still have what you need. You can contact him at Fireballmodelworks@gmail.com
  5. Hello all, Looking to see if anyone has the pylons that come in Revells 1/144 B-52G kit with the Harpoon missiles. This is the kit that has the strakelettes on the fuselage. The pylons are parts #31, 32, 46, and 47. I don't need the Harpoon missiles, just the pylons. I could use several sets for different BUFF projects. I'm in Colorado Springs, CO. Will pay for parts/shipping. Thanks for looking.
  6. Heck, any news at all on this kit? A search of the interweb only shows the Scalemates announcement.
  7. I've heard that about the 18" extension and won't be including it. Builds are too far along to worry about it.
  8. Any news or updates? Ducking for cover now.....
  9. Nice C-133. Thanks for the link Dutchmaster.
  10. Order just placed. These look amazing.
  11. Nice. You want to place at a major IPMS show, scratch build one of these and put it in the bomb-bay of a 1/144 BUFF. Maybe Academy will include one in their forthcoming kit.
  12. He is. Goes by Harold. Profile here. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/profile/8775-harold/
  13. To close this one down at least for me, I plan to paint my ALCM's Neutral Grey. Whether that is the official FS number remains to be seen but this post has gone sideways.
  14. I did find this link on the interweb but it still doesn't say what the FS number is. Looks like a pretty decent representation of current missiles. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/XZr3a In other pics, it's almost looking like the same shade as Aggressor Grey (36251). The paint color paint used on current F-15C's.
  15. So isn't neutral grey, ADC grey and aircraft grey all very similar? Not sure what shade of grey your bottom pic is Rob but it seems to be consistent with contemporary AGM-86's that you see used operationally here of late. Don
