  1. Kursad, Thank you for including the two different styles of SAC sashes on the sheet. I just stumbled across this photo of B-47Es on the ramp at Plattsburg AFB, NY from the Wikipedia entry for the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing (nee Bomb Wing). What is interesting to note is the variety of sashes / badges displayed. The closest B-47E is of particular note. Enjoy! K/r, Dutch
  2. Scot, Did you ever find a 1/144 EA-6B IFR probe? K/r, Dutch
  3. Ah so, desuka! Well, from 1975 to ~1985, I built 60 or so 1/72 Phantoms. I guess it has to be in the last 25 years or so! Good on you. Can't wait to see the results. Will be watching your completed build thread closely. Keep calm, and model on!
  4. Shawn, wait! How did you snag a set so fast? I am still waiting for my backorder from Hannants.co.uk.
  5. Just copying this post from the CD72077 thread, as it fits better over here. For the period 1992-1994 when the two letter codes were authorized, only the following B-52 units carried them, correct? LA = 2nd BW, Barksdale AFB, LA BD = 917th/307th BW (AFRES), Barksdale AFB, LA MT = 5th BW, Minot AFB, ND FC = 92nd BW, Fairchild AFB, WA GR = 416th BW, Griffiss AFB, NY CW = 7th BW, Carswell AFB, TX LZ = 42nd BW, Loring AFB, ME MO = 366th Wg, Mountain Home AFB, ID (but remained at Castle AFB, CA) CA = 93rd BW, Castle AFB, CA KI =
  6. Got my ACC Bomber Triad book in the mail today! Woohoo! How did I miss this book before? Gorgeous, simply gorgeous! Now I know all the 34th BS B-52Gs that carried the MO tailcode at Castle. I am going to spend some time with this book.
  7. Thanks Ray for the suggestion of swapping the kit engines (both CF6-80) to see if the pylons will match the lower wing surface. I will try it! K/r, Dutch
  8. Does anyone know if the Bra.Z Models #BZ4005 Boeing 767 PW4000 engines (x2) will fit the Zvezda kit? I assume they are designed for the Revell kit as they were designed & released well before the Zvezda kit. K/r, Dutch
  9. You can still build the Crown/Revell/Minicraft 1/144 B-52H into a decent kit. Here is my early B-52H from the 843rd BW at Burpelson AFB circa 1964. It just requires new engines, wing tanks and potentially, armaments.
  10. Lucas, I can get you a Rob Taurus 1:72 F-14 canopy from Hannants.co.uk for ~$4.50. (I am fixing to place an order now. Price includes item price: ~$3.20 + a portion of shipping from my larger order.) plus my mailing cost to you. PM me your mailing address and I will calculate USPS postage so you will have a good overall estimate. Once I place an order with Hannants, I usually receive it in 10-14 days. And I can flip it to you in one day. Do you want/need a mask to go with it? Kind regards, Dutch
  11. What Shawn said. The Harrier above the 1/1600 scale ships is pretty amazing. Also the F-14/F-18 over the carrier piers at Norfolk.
