  1. 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🤢
  2. That might possibly be the UGLIEST rotary winged aircraft I've ever seen!! No offense,,,,,,, And how exactly did they taxi with the stinger dragging?
  3. Got a reply from MC today regarding the G correction set. Apparently they had a setback during ‘mass production’. He said he hopes to begin shipping next week. FYI
  4. I’ve reached out to MC several times over the last few weeks with zero replies. So it seems my source has dried up.
  5. @DutchGotcha Dutch! I must’ve missed those posts. I’ll try to dig my MC ‘G’ out next week and see how they match up.
  6. Hey Dutch, check these pics out. I think this might be what MC saw when they drew the CAD for the tanks. Check out that dip in the upper tank surface just about fwd-mid pylon.
  7. Interesting take, thanks for the input..... While I wouldn’t label Paul a huge MC Buff fanboy, I would however say he’s a good modeler and apparently climbed the modeling Mt. Everest, by your estimation and achieved very good results with his MC build.
  8. Email sent! Here’s a link Btw barracudacomments@gmail.com
  9. Kursad, you’ve GOT to put this jet on your second sheet! It’s simply too BA not to. And Dutch and I promise not to ask for any more Loring aircraft,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, until you get to the SAC KC-135 sheet that is😉
  10. Great news Kursad!! I’m down for a couple sheets ‘fo sho’!! 379 has been covered but not these tail numbers, not sure about 416.
  11. Last I checked MC were to start shipping the sets last weekend.
  12. Here’s one more, you can just barely make out the black triangle with gray outline. Kursad, you’ve probably already seen photo on dstorm.eu showing the cockpit area after harvesting the nose art. So these ‘K’ would obviously be inline with that same timeframe.
  13. The photo listed this as 58-0249 which arrived AMARC September 1991
  14. I’m looking! You’d figure this one would’ve been photographed a bunch on the air show circuit.
  15. Look at this gem! Note the bloodshot eyeballs on the EVS
  16. Copy that, Kursad! Let me see what else I can scrape together.
  17. Here’s a new one of Lorings ‘Pterodactyl Courier’ 58-0241
  18. Great info @Quixote74! Now we need a MC tank added to that pic!
  19. Did Buff Master take over the DB molds or are his original?
  20. Paul , is it the diameter of the tanks that’s off or is it length which could be rectified by cutting out a section? As for antennas, I’ve approached MC about the antenna issue and even had another ARC member with detailed information offer his assistance. So far, no joy. The motivation on MC’s part to fix the issues may have run it’s course, at least until the D retooling begins.
  21. One fellow on the 97th BW FB page thinks he may have black and white pics of ‘Miss Piggy’ during the actual 1980 ‘Giant Strike V’ bomb comp but he’s not sure if they show the nose art. He’s looking though.
  22. Update: MC plans to start shipping G correction sets this weekend. Also, Paul your build looks awesome, can’t wait to see the article!
  23. As of this morning MC is working on the G correction set packaging. He said it caused a delay but wouldn’t elaborate. I completely understand the frustration but at least we’re headed in the right direction....
