  1. Glad it worked out for you @skarpins25. Give us a rundown of the parts included when you get a chance. I know it’s been hit or miss when ordering from these guys so maybe a little bit about how you ordered and your opinions on the process.
  2. Looks good Dutch! There’s definitely some quirks to the build I wasn’t aware of before, thanks for doing it. Hope the hand feels better 👍
  3. Thanks for doing this comparison, it’s very helpful and you nailed most of the differences between the two kits. The inaccuracies of each kit in regards to the actual aircraft is an entirely different subject and would need its own thread. But one of my pet peeves is how wrong both kits got the blade droop. In my opinion it’s the biggest visual distraction of all CH-47 kits. Yes, it’s a ‘Hook’, the blades do in fact droop but not how or where depicted in the kits. From the vertical hinge pin to the blade tip the blade in fact only sags roughly 12 1/2 inches. Now, there are obv
  4. I found some online for you Dutch, I’m having them shipped to your address 👍 That’s such a great livery, I really wish they’d bring it back. I worked those “Mad Dogs” for 21 years till they parked them all last year. Bitter sweet really, they made us a ton of money but I spent way too much time sweating my butt off working on Pack problems in the tail! Otherwise a great jet, I miss it. Let me know when you get them👍
  5. Gino beat me to it, that’s what I was trying to describe 👍
  6. Not sure of the actual strut extension in inches but if you drew a line flat across the belly from gear to gear, the top of each tire would be 4 to 5 inches below that line. I know it might be hard to picture so I’ll see if I can find a reference for you.
  7. In your opinion Jim, does the correction set fix the profile 100%? From that angle it looks pretty darn good to me!
  8. Looks good Jim, thanks for the update!
  9. Hey fellas, I’m looking for sheet 48-092, specifically the VMA-322 “QR” A-4M. I don’t need the whole sheet, I’ll take center portion with the markings for this particular jet. I’ve looked all over the inter webs to no avail. I’ll pay for both the sheet and shipping of course. Thanks in advance!
  10. Incredible as always Oliver! Your “quick and dirty” builds are better than my best ever builds! Nice work Jeff, search for Oliver’s Seahawk diorama build thread. Trust me when I say you’ve never seen anything like it before!
