  1. Albion Alloys do a google search. I have .3mm tubes and up.
  2. Mark, some more great sheets, want items on both!!!! Will these be ready for Chattanooga and came we pick up the decals at the show? Thanks
  3. I would really luv to see the bird in the second link since I have 1.1 hrs in the back seat!!!! So if a 72nd Phantom sheet comes along please include it!!!!!!
  4. If you compare the two; at the gun end, there is a marked difference in width, with Monogram being correct. I base that on measurements and common sense, since a company doesn't change the build jigs just because no one is sitting back there!!?!
  5. OK, just for fun dry fit the fuses and compare the stern parts to each other!! You may change your mind about the non-Monogram kit!!?? If you scout around the vapour world you will find a better price for the MoC kit(s)......
  6. It just arrived at 'the place of my front door', well driveway, as I was outside when it arrived! What do you get; new nose; new tail ( short version I think???), strakelets and bits (didn't look hard at them), flaps with tracks attached and as advertised the cruise missile weapons set!!! Time to build a BUFF!!!!
  7. I do the same as Chris, no global shipping for me!!! It takes longer since there is an extra stop and the knobs (I say that with all the respect I can muster) who 'guess' at the duty & taxes; then don't even have the courtesy to advise one that they are going into your paypal account and removing 'X' dollars??????????? I say guess, because in the last 5 - 10 years of online shopping only 2 - 3 packages that have gone through Canada Customs have been dinged with - any - charges!!! I asked a merchant about the global crap program and he said evil bay encourages sellers to enroll but it is not mandatory!?!?! Maybe a tax attorney or accountant will pop up and explain the fine print!!
  8. Well tracking has revealed my correction package has 'reached the place of arrival', which means it could soon reach 'the place of my front door'!!?!! So that means it could be in Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal??????
  9. Just be aware that those drawings were a guide!!! By all means take the info BUT before acting on it compare to pics of the real a/c. I have seen this book and compared the drawings to the real birds and in some cases there were large differences between book and what the paint shop applied to the a/c!! Sometimes it's a long way from the table where the plans are to the a/c you are painting!! HTH
  10. .....has shipped, so should see it in about a week!?!?!?
  11. With credit to John Gillespie McGee; Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air... Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark or even eagle flew -- And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God. From one aviator to another, may all your days be CAVOK. Great story, my condolences.
  12. For sure but with the usual caveat; weather and will M. Nature be good to us??
  13. This is great, you could almost take up one sheet with Canadian stuff!!! The 600 srs alone came in the F-18 grey scheme, the newer overall grey (36170???), white 'family' model scheme with and without the racing stripe!!! They carried markings for 414 Sqn, 434 Sqn, 412 Sqn & AETE!! The newer birds have been pretty much the same with the 'family' scheme and the dark blue ones with the small nose art!!! Yes, I'm in for one of these!!!!
  14. That's why I only build AA armour!! 😉
  15. That's funny (not ha ha) because a while back I asked if I could buy a photo-etch set from an armour kit since the vehicle had 5 crew platforms and they only gave us 4!!? After explaining clearly what I wanted all I got was crickets.............
