  1. I don't own any Aires products for the Monogram or Academy F-14's so I can't comment on that. I thought I read though that Aires usually reboxes their items. If they initially made the burner cans for Hasegawa, they will rebox them and just print Academy or Hobby Boss on the package. I know they did that with cockpit sets. If Aires made the burner cans specifically for the Academy kit they should fit the Monogram with no problems. Aires also makes a really nice cockpit set for the Academy F-14A. I don't know if it is just a rebox though from the Hasegawa set.
  2. You also don't always have to have one exhaust open and one closed. Here is an example of both exhausts open. There are quite a few other photos online showing both exhausts open.
  3. The Academy F-14A has two sets of open/closed exhausts. They fit the Monogram kit perfectly. Here is the sprue from the Academy kit. I cut the Monogram outer exhausts off leaving just the burner cans then attached the Academy parts to them. Here is the original Monogram exhaust on the right next to the modified Academy exhausts on the Monogram burner cans. Here are the Academy outer exhaust parts fitted to the Monogram burner cans. Here are the modified Academy exhausts dry fitted to the Monogram kit.

The two on the left and the one top right. LTTF Kitty Hawk 1/48 UH-1D .50cal machine guns with the perforated barrels. I could use two complete 50cals if possible. Part #'s A46 x 2 A47 A48 A49 x 2 A54 x 2 A59 x 2 A61 x 2 A62 A63 A64 A65 LTTF Kinetic 1/48 AGM-119 Penguin Missile from the F-16AM NATO Viper. Kinetic 1/48 F-16. If you used a resin spine or have a trashed kit I could use the spine and related spine parts for an Israeli F-16. I am also seeking the protrusions for the sides of the intakes and on the nose as well. LTTF Kinetic 1/48 A-6E and or Skunkmodels 1/48 F-16XL sprue "V" with the Mk.82 500lb Snake Eyes, Mer's and sway braces. I need "TWO" to "FOUR" of the "V" sprues if you aren't using them. Preferably "FOUR" of the "V" sprues would be greatly appreciated. I contacted Luckymodels/Kinetic/Skunkmodels but they replied they don't offer separate sprues or spare parts for sale. The Kinetic 1/48 A-6E contains 2 each of the "V" sprue. The Skunkmodels 1/48 F-16XL contains 2 each of the "V" sprue.

    Making an AH-1W from an AH-1Z

    Way back in 2012 I cut the nose off the Monogram AH-1F kit and was going to graft it onto the Italeri AH-1W for the NTS nose. You have to cut the front of the Italeri canopy to fit the Monogram nose. Also, the Monogram nose sits a bit higher so the Italeri canopy leaves a gap between the lower edge of the canopy and the top of the cockpit. Even if you get the Olimp set, you are instructed to cut the front of the Italeri canopy to fit the NTS nose. Unfortunately I cracked the canopy on mine and that is why I stopped.

    Thanks! I got the Bronco 1/35 M1114 in a trade. I am still looking to trade for the Academy 1/35 M1151 though.
