  1. I outfit all my aircraft with the Eduard ordnance sets....mainly modern 1/48 USN/USAF. I have been trying to build up some stock and have found that most of the sets are out of stock everywhere. Anybody know what's going on?
  2. National Hobby in Parma, Ohio...dad took me in there and a guy was looking at the newly released Tamiya New Jersey...I was hooked. Same day, we went to Wing's Hobbies in Lakewood, Ohio and I got a Monogram 1/48 F-14. Oh the memories!!!
  3. I think everybody will have their personal favorite. I use a Silentaire DR150. It's pricey (700-800 dollars) but it is so quiet that I have to sometimes check that it's working. I've had one for 5 years and, as long as you remember to check the oil level...it runs beautifully.
  4. Here's the stuff they announced they were working on back in August: F-111 "Aardvark" development plan 2022/23 F-111 BRU-3A Bomb Rack Units F-111 Pylons F-111 Triple Plow I Air Intakes F-111 Triple Plow II Air Intakes F-111 Wheel bay with landing gear F-111 Bomb bay F-111 Front electronic bay
  5. Yes...two ladders per set. Waiting on all the other goodies also. I'm hoping that they include the Pave Tack pod/cradle when they release the bomb bay sets. I've never been able to find detailed photos of this.
  6. Received the late F model cockpit today. It does have the Pacer Strike MFD's on the instrument panel decals. I also picked up three of the ladders and they are absolutely beautiful!!!
  7. Planning for my HpH 1/48 B-52H kit and the major parts are fiberglass. Can anyone suggest a putty/filler to use that's available in USA? I normally use the red Bondo stuff for plastics but I don't think it will work. Must be fine enough to rescribe panel lines. Thank you!!!
  8. Look at the Wikipedia entry for the Pratt and Whitney TF30. Pretty good explanation. The FB used the same wheels as the Reskit E/F/EF-111A set for the increased weight. I have all the RESKIT sets and they're beautiful.
  9. From the Weapons Set E set. I have two of these sets and, if you want the rest, minus the HTS pods, they're yours. Also willing to pay fair price. Thank you!!!!
  10. If somebody didn't use it...I accidentally tossed mine. Thank you!!
  11. Panic?? Really?? Maybe I was just making an inquiry since, for a thousand dollar kit, I wanted to see if they wanted money down or maybe I ordered it incorrectly. Didn't ever know that trying to be honest would result in some stranger accusing me of something. You have a nice day!!
