  1. The Dragon kit has now been earmarked for conversion to a Little Joe booster, teamed with the Mercury boilerplate parts from the Horizon kit :)
  2. There are several builds of this kit in the ARC gallery. http://www.arcair.com/Gal-Archives/jet/F-107-Ultra-Sabre/01.shtm
  3. Ha same here. Dreamed of making a Goshawk but that Premier kit was so bad it became a No-Goshawk. However the PM Model kit of a 1/72 F-16 was far far worse. Tube glue was too good for that steaming pile of shtyrene...

  13. lol good one
  14. I read the same thing about the F-117 back in the 90s, not exactly a "new" threat to stealth.
  15. New technology ??? Rushed ??? The TACAIR MNS (Mission Needs Statement) for EMALS was put out in 1995. EMALS first land-based launch, a T-45, was in 2010. Westinghouse developed a similar electric aircraft catapult in 1946, around the time linear induction motors were first developed. When compared to EMALS, the whole JSF > X-35 > F-35 program is "rushed"....
