  1. Sorry I can’t help with parts but there’s a left wing assembly available on EBay. I’ve purchased single spues this way previously.
  2. I’m with you Tim, I didn’t see it at first either. You got any of that sandwich left?🤷‍♂️
  3. There’s nothing in there. It’s a hold over from the A through C’s which had the AFT transmission oil coolers mounted flat to the deck. They changed the layout of the screens and the method of access from earlier models but as far as the D and F models, it’s empty.
  4. I hadn’t but now I have! Looks good! Sorry I couldn’t help sooner 👍
  5. I guess, with this being a ‘what if’ build, you could go in either direction. You could copy an actual in theater customer such as the Brits and model it after HC mk6 or possibly a Japanese CH-47JA with enlarged fuel tanks and radar nose. I’m not real familiar on the German requirements but I’m sure you could research those and add the cabin door hoist and various antennas if needed. The 1/72 MH-47E kit should give you everything you need except the regular non-radar nose.
  6. Back in the 80’s and 90’s, how did the crew secure their Air-60’s in the window when not in use. For example, we Hookers would bungee cord ours in the forward or aft direction when mounted, to prevent them from blowing around. Just curious how you Hawk guys secured yours. Thanks in advance
  7. I got an answer for you Don. This is a quote from ex-Bone avionics guy. “We think the antenna is part of the block 16 upgrades that replace the APQ 164 forward looking radar with SABR-GS which is just a much more capable synthetic aperture radar and integrates with the mapping and sensor operation. Just makes it more capable as far as situational awareness in the cockpit.” He also mentioned the black is a RAM coating associated with the SABR-GS. All this is mentioned in the following article. https://www.airforce-technology.com/news/newsnorthrop-introduces-n
  8. There are 4 “antenna” in that area, it seems the black semi circle corresponds with the direction of orientation. I suspect Habu may be right on this one😉
  9. Title says it all. I know Lonestar re-popped them but the site is down currently. I’m working with the Academy kit to build an early A and it seems to have everything I need with the exemption of the open exhausts. Just wondering if anyone had a set they’d be willing to sell. I figured I’d get more traction here before posting in Buy/ Sell. Thanks in advance.
