  1. But, but those props are driven by JET engines!?!!! And I realize we are splitting large rabbits!!
  2. Now I just have to get a Leo 2A4CAN done to go on the ramp, or maybe a 2A6, which will be easier!?!?!
  3. Yeah maybe, but not a pilot - a navigator. How many flights do you need? Is there a minimum # of hours, or hour?
  4. Check with Westjet maybe they flew it to another province?? As to the original question you may want to spend a bit of time browsing pics on the net of jet exhausts. There are many different shades around and I bought a couple of the small square Testors Steel paints and some spare bottles and started mixing colours, adding black, & various greys. If you decide to look at some pics save them and print them later for a reference when painting your jet. HTH
  5. Everything that has been said above!! You must advise the seller of his transgression and if you choose to have him continue then donate the profits, get Ebay involved and get then to have Paypal forward the sale to the appropriate charity. I believe I have heard of Ebay pulling auctions where it was found that someone's intellectual property was improperly used!
  6. Could this be one of the company demos?? It looks like a 'Banana' flying in the background and there is a 'Roo' on the fuse - a zap by the Aussie Huey Squadron? Cannot remember how long the RAAF had the Hueys in 'Nam?
  7. Mark, could you give us a time frame for the release of these 2 sets? Thanks
  8. Depending on how they are 'popping' mines there is more detail to add. When I was stationed in Shearwater, many years ago, a harbour mine ex was held. The USN brought in IIRC 6 of these beasts, 5 flew in, one was transported in the back of a C-5!!! That one was to train the crews in setting up a -53 for air transport. WRT mine clearing, got a chance to talk to one of the crew chiefs and he explained the types of mines. Moored mines are floating close to the surface and anchored to the bottom, they are cleared with a bunch of cutters (similar to wire strike devices on choppers) attached to a long chain set up in a triangle with floats at the corners. The mines popped to the surface and were gunned down with a MG. All of this was carried in the chopper!! So add a bunch of chains and a couple of floats. The other mines were acoustic / magnetic, for these they had a gizmo on 2 floats that they towed, it was too big to go inside so it was floating in the water and the chopper came over and hovered as the crew hooked up the cable(s), it would be nice to see a model of one of these!! HTH
  9. Mark is there an error in the title? Since I have tried to find these sheets on your site I'm guessing it should read 2017!? Great markings gotta get both!!!
  10. Thanks Chris but that one is old!! The Cold Lake Airshow that we had when I was there with the B-One was IIRC in '89? That's 28 years ago!?! So just in case I do another display where there is another B-One crew I want this to be a better model!! And you only have one in 48th???? You're slipping?!?!?
  11. ............and let me say they are SUPERB!!!
  12. This will make your wife extremely happy!!!?!!! Get one of those rechargeable hand vacs, see what I am saying!? They have a foam filter so the tiny parts don't go thru the motor! Once you figure you have covered the area get a kit box lid, preferably one that isn't folded, so the tiny bits don't have somewhere to hide, Hasegawa lids are great! Empty the catch bin of the vac and clean off the filter into the lid, then do your best CSI impersonation. Having one of those head band magnifiers helps and your favourite tweezers; latex gloves, little tabs with numbers on them, paper bags and the chain of evidence are your choice! I have found some tiny bits that I was not interested in folding or scratch building again and even a couple that managed to sneak off the bench when I wasn't looking!!! HTH
  13. I have dealt with these chaps quite a lot, don't know if they have Mr. Colour but you can always ask??? Shipping is reasonable and quick. Pretty sure they have the rest of the items on your list. http://www.wheelswingshobbies.com/
  14. Hey; we are from this Nation's Capital and the board doesn't want politics so what else do we have!?!?!? Sunny Days, especially next weekend!!
  15. Well then things should be OK, there have been times when I have been able to compare the WN with real radar images and I really wonder where theirs come from???? I plan to stage out of P'Boro so if I get there then the wx here may not matter!? Am keeping my eye on Environment Canada's forecast which I value more than the WN! Keeping my fingers crossed!!
