  1. They’ll need to do better than Italeri’s F release. Like include the things that obviously make an F an F such as the IR suppression louvres, outward canted -714 exhausts and double pitot probes. Otherwise, it’ll just be a D boxed as an F.
  2. Thanks for the reply! That’s perfect, I’m ordering both of those today! Obviously I’ll need to test it out but I think this just might work. Again, great build and thanks for being so open to revealing your secrets!
  3. Janman, fantastic looking build! I’m not an armor guy so I really don’t know what I’m looking at but I do recognize a skilled modeler! I was curious as to how you accomplished some of your weathering. Specifically the oil spots on the front right fender. You see, I’m interested because this is often seen on rotary wing aircraft which have a leaking seal on the rotor head. As the head turns it slings oil across the top of the fuselage creating these random soaked-in oil spots. This is the first time I’ve seen this effect pulled of realistically! Again, fantastic build a
  4. Great news! Anytime the Hook gets some love I’m in. Hopefully they put some effort into detailing the ramp and cabin. But I’m skeptical that they’ll be anything more than scaled down versions of Trumpy’s 1/35 kits. Although, 1/48 scale MH versions would be a gold mine should they release them!
  5. It seems like things are back to normal or at least ARC Forums feels better while using it. Maybe a add banner at the top and bottom but not the intrusive embedded or pop up like earlier. So, thanks for fixing it Steve, we really do appreciate all that you do for our hobby! Although, the ‘Free roofing estimate’ add at the bottom certainly isn’t as exciting as what I was getting yesterday 😂
  6. And that folks, is why I love this group! @Dutch @KursadA
  7. Steve, I totally apologize for the tone of this post, but is there a way that we can “opt out” of these ads? In other words, can we pay a nominal fee to be free of these annoying adds? I’ve really enjoyed my experience here on ARC for the past 15 years. The guys on here are truly considered friends and I’ve learned so much from them, I don’t want to give that up but I’m seriously considering taking a break from ARC because of these annoying adds. It’s simply too distracting. Thanks in advance
  8. I totally agree! Wading through the “Retire in Belize” and “Available Singles” advertisements just to read this post is a hassle not to mention slightly inappropriate......
  9. I’m interested in some feedback also, Dutch. I’ve got an AMT “G” In the stash waiting to be built for a co-worker. It’s a Loring jet so it needs the non-ALCM wings. That’s a pretty big chunk of resin, would shrinkage be an issue?
  10. These are fantastic Kursad! I’m just sorry I couldn’t contribute references, all my pics are boring pre-9/11 airframes with vanilla markings. I’ll be ordering several sets!
  11. Awesome news Kursad! We knew these sheets would be a hit!
  12. This B-47E belonged to the 100th BW at Pease AFB. It was lost along with 3 of 4 crew members In November 1961.
  13. I don’t recall anything in 1/48 but Wolfpack made a Super D conversion for the Italeri 1/72 kit. Maybe that’s what you’re thinking of?
  14. Ditto, I’m super pumped for the second 1/72 sheet also!
  15. MC has already said the D will be a completely retooled kit.
  16. All H kits have the corrected nose and flaps. Unfortunately all G kits produced require the correction set ordered separately. The set is free but you’ll have to foot the tab for shipping direct from Modelcollect.
  17. Thanks Ish, that would certainly explain it. Hopefully they can work that that into the plot well enough that it all coalesces but on the surface I have to admit it kinda feels lame.
  18. I’m looking forward to it! Just wondering what the F-14 tease is for at the end of the trailer? Oh, and watch his shoulder straps slip off at the end when they go inverted.....
  19. Ya, it was a bit much so I vowed to throttle back a tad......... then Kursad released several more awesome batches and blew that right out of the water. But I can stop whenever I want.......😬
  20. Looks like MC added a new flap sprue complete with flap tracks! A welcomed addition to the G update set!
  21. I see your 410th BW and I raise you a 42nd BW!!
  22. Order places for 2 copies, Also can’t wait for the second sheet! Nice work Kursad!
  23. I see a resemblance also but that squatting stance just feels awkward as all get out. I think the Black hawk remains one of the sexiest looking aircraft, in my opinion, while this thing is obviously the ugly step sister who never married🤢
