  1. Sprue "S" parts if you're not going to use them. Thank you bunches!!! pbtomcatfan@gmail.com
  2. Tamiya X-22 thinned 50/50 with Mr Color Leveling thinner. Spray at 18psi
  3. I'm on my sixth Rhino and have also not seen large loadouts on fleet birds. All of the suggestions are correct. One thing...when ATFLIR pod is mounted, the drop tank isn't normally carried on the port wing as it blocks the FLIR line of sight at certain angles of attack. The starbooard wing usually has a tank on the inner pylon and the port inner pylon usually holds a GBU-12 or GBU-38 for even weight distribution.
  4. Can't remember the FS number but the only match is Life Color Emerald Green. I have a couple from Spru Bros on order now. Humbrol #3 is pretty close...add a little gloss black to it.
  5. It's well documented that the TF-30 engine installed in the F-14A was prone to compressor stalls due to the disruption of airflow at the intake. This caused the flameout of one engine while the opposite continued thrust inducing a spin. It was also susceptable to severe throttle changes and the pilot had to use extreme care on throttle settings during high g maneuvering. A digital engine control was eventually fitted to the A model but it didn't completely alleviate the problem and there were several flight restrictions that remained until retirement. The F-110 was very forgiving of airflo
  6. Got a great deal on a few single seaters. I'll use the new Growler kit for the "F"s but would like updated Echos. Need 4 sets but will take whatever you have. project is every CAG bird Thanks!! Pete pbtomcatfan@gmail.com
  7. For those lucky enough to have gotten one: 1. Does it include the E/F gun port or just the G's faired over item?? 2. Does it include the wing tip launch rails from the E/F kit?? You can see where I'm going from here. Thanks for the tips. Pete pbtomcatfan@gmail.com
  8. I have an old set of Paragon resin F-111 afterburners. Kit was destroyed in a move and I'm making another one with a little better skills after 15 years. The burner cans were painted with a combination of Testors Model master enamels and Metalizer colors. I've used the old trick of soaking in automotive brake fluid before but only on plastic...never on resin. My questions: 1. Will the resin absorb the brake fluid?? I can see oil leeching out of the resin long after the paint has been applied. 2. Will the brake fluid lift the Metalizer?? It works great on enamels but I've never tried
  9. Pretty low on stuff for trade but will pay good $$$...needed to complete an F-4G project. Thank you. pbtomcatfan@gmail.com
  10. This is the sheet with the Idaho ANG F-4G's...thank you!!!
  11. Calling Ghost Rider from Zone Five...can't email you from there...have a brand new F/A-18F Canopy (Hasegawa) with your name on it.
  12. Looking for one of the tanks from either of the IsraCast detail sets...they come with the mount. Doing a US Army bird so am trying not to have to buy the whole set. Thanks!! Pete
  13. Anybody have any idea what color the wheel bays are painted?? Can't find a photo anywhere. Thanks!!
  14. Found the F-111 set (in the mail) and thought I might get lucky again. Thank you!!
