  2. http://tailspintopics.blogspot.com/2015/?m=1 According to the link above, wingtip slime lights didn’t hit production on the Intruder until 1982. Confirms my thoughts above that your during your specific timeframe, a converted A-6A to a KA-6D would not have them. Collin
  3. No slime lights. This is around '73-ish: Note this is probably all Indy had (early KA-6D's), later variants had the slime lights added. Below are two tanker intruders...you can see the different wingtip variants: Older: Newer:
  4. I just recently finished a TPS F-14 with AK Interactive Real Colors, those were pretty good for color match.
  5. Raised panel lines which actually come pretty close to the real aircraft. There are these strange recessed panel lines on the wings, easy to fill in and rub smooth with some thinner/q-tip ( my preferred method with mr surfaces products. Or use miliput and wipe it away with water. Cheers Collin
  6. I would stick with the Hasegawa kit with extras. I have the same kit with extras myself. The shape of the Trump is just something I can’t get over. Collin
  7. I got slammed for brining that topic up in another forum when I suggested Eduard just size up their 1/48 kit. Oh boy did I step in it. But again, I will say just size up the Eduard F6F-3/5 series to 32nd scale and 90%+ of the modeling Hellcat fans would be happy. Cheers Collin
  8. Both. I own both, and I seem to use the PS-270 a bit more with the crown off and the .2mm needle. That is not to say the 2020 belongs in the garbage. When I am working tight camo pattern...I use both and it depends on the type of paint type and how it spray's out of each airbrush. If one type of paint mixed to such and such level sprays the fine lines I need...I use it. I have both set up when doing that close up/tight work...so it's easy to switch between the two and mix & match. Cleaning the 2020 is easier. Cheers Collin
  9. Specifically the ones from the 1/32 Revell Tornado kits (Mk 13/18 variants). Cheers Collin

  11. Looks like GBU-31(V)4/B's loaded up in the background
