  1. Thank you for the quick responses guys. I thought that all new cockpits were overall black now for NVG use so this is news to me.
  2. Looking at reference photos it looks like the inside of the canopy frame is light ghost gray. Is this correct for current active duty aircraft?
  3. ES I was thinking the same as you. dealing with seams on 2 large pieces sounds better than 6 smaller ones. I've been doing all the sub assemblies I can that don't require PE so far. I have the big Ed set and it's a lot of brass so that's next. Anything I need to watch out for with the PE?
  4. For anybody that has built the kit. Is it better to follow the instructions when building the fuselage and build the outer wings and center separate then join as sub assemblies? Or is it better to add the outer wings to the center top and bottom halves and them put them together as two large parts like with the Testors kit?
  5. If you can get ahold of them try the glow in the dark emergency trunk release handles in modern cars. They look about the right color and made of plastic.
  6. Just learned that Eddie has passed at age 65 from cancer.
  7. Got a question: is it really possible for a jet to make manouver like that (0:54)? Sure it is. Just hit the brakes and he'll fly right by.

So after checking Google and every model site I can think of I have a few questions. What colors are the exterior of the reduction gear section, compressor section, turbine section? Also what colors for the inside of the same sections? Also what colors for the compressor blades and stators? What about the colors of accessory parts on the case? I know that most of it will be metallic colors just want to get them at least close because I would l
  9. Unless something has changed in the last couple years it does not.
  10. Thanks for sharing those pics of the F-104 at Edwards. They were a real blast from the past. My house was about a 1/4 mile from those planes. I used to walk out there all the time growing up.
  11. I got the Meng 1/35 D9R, M1A1 AIM Tusk 1, M1A2 SEP ver2 Tusk 1/2 and some tools. So it was a very good Christmas.
  12. Just found out that Stan Lee has passed away at 95. R.I.P. Mr. Lee.
  13. I three say go with scale hobbyist. Been ordering from them for years never a problem. Good prices and shipping is low.
