  1. Was a great aircraft for a NFO to learn in. Good for cross country excursions as well. Cheers Collin
  2. SuCAP is a balance of a number/type of weapons Vs. potential target, and time-on-station/bring back, deck cycle timing, tanker support. When I planned S-3's, F-18's (baby), and F-14's I took all the above into account. That is still being done with Navy and USAF (and other country assets) out here in theater (my current deployed job). Never had A-7E's specifically to plan (I'm NOT that old), but they couldn't use Harpoon, not really a primary LGB player (although they could carry and buddy drop), didn't have LMAV (AGM-65E) or IR MAV (AGM-65F)...although they were teste
  3. You have picked an airframe with a lot....I mean a lot of options. Cool? Whatever catches you eye and screams "cool'...that's the one. https://www.key.aero/forum/modern-military-aviation/127603-amazing-weapons-loads-a-7-corsair-ii http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/281365-a-7e-loadout/ https://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/2/t/90514.aspx https://www.google.com/search?q=A-7E+loadout&newwindow=1&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwismPaHzY74AhWciv0HHWw-Bi44HhD8BSgBegQIARAD&biw=1916&bih=857&dpr
  4. That's not just a Navy problem these days....very unfortunate. Collin
  5. NAS Pensacola VT-86 T-39's need to be part of the mix. Every Naval Flight Officer that tracked Jets/E-2's in the late 80's to the early 2000's flew these in the training track. Lots of good (and some bad) memories of cross countries, low level navigation, and some pretty boring racetrack overwater surface search flights. She was a safe and smooth aircraft (even on those hot Summer days at 500ft). Cheers Collin
  6. Is that red Bondo putty you are using? How is it to scribe? Excellent effort here. Cheers Collin
  7. Boy…I thought a photo conversion of the upcoming Tamiya P-38J was going to be easy 🤔. Great info here. Cheers Collin
  8. If able, throw the answer out here. Curt isn't the only one thinking of this conversion. Collin
  9. Ladies and Gentlemen: I think we have a new paint scheme for Super Hornets? Or maybe they are just really.....I mean really clean.
  10. Podcast I listen to a few days ago...the Tamiya USA rep said June/July 2022. Cheers Collin
  11. Mine was mailed to me the day before the invasion. Their website is still up, they say go ahead and place your order(s). Once they kick the Russians out…they will ship. Collin
  12. TAKE MY MONEY. I was just wondering about this...since I just picked up the CAT4 resin intake and tail correction for the HB A-7A kit. Cheers Collin
