  1. I'm looking for the yellow aircav markings in the pic.
  2. Was wondering which AH-64D/E kit comes with the full color Air Cav markings you see nowadays on the sponsons. Its starting to grow on me after seeing them in movies and docus and would like to build one with the markings. Thanks for any info in advance Cheers, Andy
  3. Any idea why the ALQs were mounted on the bottom of the tail boom instead of on top the engine housing like Marine birds? I know Marine birds are N and have a flat top but from the pics the mounting adapter is just a flat plate with 4 legs so theoretically it would also work on top. Just curious since the only hueys I've seen are the local birds which were never ASE equipped, even when they deployed for their only ever trip down range(East Timor).
  4. Thanks folks!
  5. How is the kit? Any one can share pics of the plastic. Being wanting to pick one up but worried cos of the age of the mold. If its the same quality as their F-105 or A-1 then I'll get one! Thanks in advance!
  6. Thks Ioannis looking forward to it! Andy
  7. I'm with you bro! After all the nice noises for almost 2 years (since they didn't actually promised anything according to some), now they're saying essentially they are too busy making money elsewhere and if we want the kit then we need to basically pony up and pay them up front like a corporate manufacturing client for an entire production run so that they will then consider slotting the kit into their schedule in Dec (show faith if that's the word), if there's not enough faith then it will happen as and when they have some slack time in the factory! Hahaha thanks but no thanks! Really liked the Kfir but why get bother into if its only going to be a sideshow for the company? Supplementary income to pay the rent on slow days? At least don't put any timeframe on the releases or just say it up front all releases will happen at the discretion of the company!
  8. Hi Ioannis! I would like to order the stick but worried about the shipping to Singapore. Any chance you can let me know the postage cost? Andy
  9. About time! Woohoo! Thks Floyd!
  10. If I'm not wrong the 3 tone with black scheme is only found on the OH, UH-60s and NH The Hueys never had black added. I could be wrong though
  11. Nice! Tempted to do a Bushranger config myself if the late version ever comes out and with the gunship parts
  12. So in a nutshell- Decals, sharknose and -6 LERXes from your Mig-28. All other parts as per your USAF F-5F. No VHF antenna on spine, just the usual 2 under the nose per your kit instructions. Leave off the CM dispenser under the fuselage and the 4 RWR blisters. Late seats and vented canopy. HTH
  13. The LERX are separate pieces in the AFV kits so you can just use the parts from your Mig-28 kits i.e nose and LERXes. Looking at limited pics on google there seems to be no extra antennas so you are good with the USAF kit, however you will need the later seats with the bigger headrests. Not sure if that's in the kit but you can get aftermarket easy. Only thing I cant make out is the canopy so not sure if its early or late but I just checked the USAF instructions and you have the late vented canopy in there and the Mig-28 instruction shows a late canopy as well so looks like you're good with what you have now. Also just saw the late seats are in the USAF kits.
  14. They probably won't do it at all. Or worse mold it to the struts
  15. Kinda confused on the variants now. Is not the MLU A/Bs being released by Freedom the same as the C/Ds being released by AFV? Or were there 2 separate upgrade programs i.e. half the fleet got the full conversion to C/D version while the rest got a more modest MLU upgrade?
