  1. USMC M1151 HUMVEE questions

    I have been out of armor modeling for quite a few years and have not kept up with the most up to date versions available. Hoping someone can answer a few questions about USMC M1151 HUMVEES. I would like to get a couple of the Academy 1/35 M1151 Enhanced Armament Carriers to do two USMC versions with the Live Resin MCTAGS turrets. Did the USMC remove the extended exhaust pipe from the M1151 while used in Iraq? I noticed that Academy didn't include it but also from the few photos I found online I didn't see the extended exhaust pipe. I am planning to do one with the .50cal and one with the M240. Is the Academy kit the correct kit for the USMC to use with those Live Resin turrets? These are the Live Resin turrets I am planning to use. Would these turrets work with the Academy M1151 or could I use them on the older Tamiya M1025 and or M1046? Thanks for any help you could provide.

  3. Those intake filters look really good. Can't wait to see the ones for the MH-60S. I would be in for at least two sets.
  4. They are the same and the USN even borrowed some from the US Army. In some photos the front is opened and some are closed giving the impression they are different. The front part is spring loaded and can be opened inwards if the outer filters get too clogged.
  5. 1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Revell released the 1/48 F-14D with the VF-124 decals.
  6. John, I hope you tackle them soon. Please take note they are multi angled in shape.
  7. Great job on those exhausts. How about some 1/48 engine intake barrier filters? The USN also used them on the MH-60S and the HH-60H. Here is an MH-60S with them.
  8. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

  9. Start the speculation....

    AMK is doing the molds for a company called Annetra. Original post but due to Photobucket the images are gone. A link to Britmodeller here that has more about it http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/301375-annetra-mi-8mt17-hip/&tab=comments#comment-2886954 From a Czech site https://ipmsnymburk.com/forum/viewtema.php?ID_tema=38974&page_d=0&idp_d=0&idc_d=1&show_html=
