  1. Yep definitely happy news! And the Chinook is back too! Looking forward to finally getting one!
  2. Wow that sucks! Wondered what the guy who sold you the kits want with 2 early tanks
  3. Hi Dean,

  4. Isradecal used to do a set for a mix of their choppers including the Defender and a separate sheet for the yellow chevrons. Might still be available at some online shops
  5. Hi phantom, Thanks for the info but I'm looking for the low G early tank not the F-15 style one. And the Marine boxing of the Tamiya kit do include the tank, not sure about the Navy box though
  6. Anybody a set of the tank and pylon they are willing to spare? Thanks in advance! Andy
  7. Oh man another one for the library! Dunno whether to rejoice or cry hahaha!
  8. Hi Darren Any chance you can list the item nos here as there's lots of different tomcat parts and I don't wanna end up with the wrong sets. Also is it possible to backdate the Tamiya 1/32 Black Knights kit to a 80s bird? Are the early parts still in the box or I need resin? Thanks and regards, Andy
  9. Wow love this! Couple of questions- are decals available to build this scheme and any mods needed to the Tamiya kit????
  10. Hahaha we had a test pilot that was way worse! He would cancel test flights for the slightest slights like the line crew not lined up to welcome him or there was the slightest noise on the flightline while he was there i.e. everyone else had to shut down while he was doing his brief until after he took off! God help you if even a single switch was in the wrong posit or the elevator trim wasn't exactly at 8degon the gauge. We would be starting up for low power or comp wash or some other shoot and suddenly the test line crew would bomb burst out of their trailer, cut throating everyone. A couple of times you would see the staff car turn around and head back cos somebody got the signal late or was too slow and he already heard the noise! Granted he was a LT Col and head of the test unit but still... We nicknamed him Emperor. Even his own AF guys don't like him much, famous service wide. USNTPS grad, even used his own personal USN spec flight gear. Must not have much friends the SOB!
  11. Thanks Brian! Andy
  12. Any idea what was the loadout for both birds? Thks!
  13. Any news on the JHMCS sensors? Would you be doing the helmets as well in 1/48? And maybe DASH helmets as well since many countries are using those? Andy
  14. Holy smokes! I see at least 6 kits in there! Will you be doing a write up or review of the kit???
