  1. Reviving an old thready here, They look similar to the LAU-115 used on Navy Hornets. These would be attached to the unique outboard F-15 pylon, and there are probably some differences to the Navy LAU-115. Any differences will be pretty well hidden between the LAU-128s and missiles though. I really like the look of the test aircraft with all of the Orange markings, none of the pictures I can find are close enough to make out the names on the nose though. Does anybody have a closer picture that would help me get the decal artwork done? Thanks, Hoops
  2. Thank you all very much for the responses. Seeing that the Freightdog drop tanks are available right now, that's what I'll go for. Brengun did purchase all of the masters from Attack Squadron when they got out of the resin business, so I think it's only a matter of time before they are re-released. There is no know when, unfortunately. Cheers! Hoops
  3. Good Evening, I wanted to know if there is a good option out there for a Aero 1C Drop Tank in 1/72 scale? I've got a plenty of 300 Gal 1Ds from various other kits, but I don't seem to have any 150 Gal 1Cs. The drop tank will go on the centerline of an OV-10. The Academy kit has the some drop tanks, but they are not the right type, and the shape is pretty questionable. Thank you for your inputs! Cheers, Hoops
  4. They were in a separate set and box, do a search for PAG-14 Airfield Plates. Cheers, Hoops
  5. Something funny must be going on with the forums, as my mailbox is showing only 24% full. I don't actually have the plastic here yet, it's on it's way from an ebay auction. I think that the spinner is the same diameter, but to my eye it looks like it is longer from front to back, with a more pointed tip. Cheers, Hoops
  6. I dug through my stash and have the top third of the sheet: one full set of Swedish stencils, all the numbers and tail markings for one aircraft, as well as the instructions. I will be on travel all next week, so if Greenghost can't help you, let me know and I can when I get back. Hoops
  7. You and me both man, trying to do a OV-10G+ Barring that I'm considering picking up a set of 1/144 B-29 props from Brengun and scratching the spinner. The sizes are comparable enough to make it work. Cheers, Hoops
  8. Good day, I'm looking at converting an Academy 1/72 OV-10D to a OV-10G+ and one of the largest and most notable differences is that it has four bladed propellers. The Special Hobby CASA-212/Aviacar kit has two different sets of propellers (parts 74 or 75), so I though it might get me closer than trying to do that from scratch. I think that part 75 is closer in shape, but is only a spare if you have the C-41A boxing. Either set would help though. Does anybody have on in the spares box? Cheers, and thanks! Hoops
  9. Gear bays are close enough for modelling work between the 100 and 200
  10. I think that's a 3D render, ships are usually not that clean or uncomplicated. A couple of other possibilities, Again the ground launched version, don't know how different the -15F would be. Hoops
  11. New Tarangus 1/72 Viggen, I'm super excited!
  12. These have been around the longest, on vinyl: http://gatorsmask.com/jetaircraft.html These guys are a bit more recent, I think that it's on yellow masking "tape" sheets: https://dnmodels.com/?s=viggen&product_cat=0&post_type=product Same deal here: https://www.maestromodels.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=viggen Cheers, Hoops
  13. Good Morning, I'm looking for two of the big cruciform winged GBU-15s from the Hasegawa 1/72 scale Weapons set II. It's the only thing that I'm interested in from the set, and I thought that because they are kind of wierd somebody might have them extra. Let me know if anybody has some that they are looking to get rid of, and I'll buy them off your hands. Cheers, and thanks! Hoops
  14. Me too, I think that the ICE test birds look sharp! See some photos here from Sven: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235046071-phancon-at-george-afb-march-1992/ Cheers, Hoops
  15. Basically, anything that would be sold in the squadron spaces is at the gee-dunk. There is usually a corner with candy bars, chips, sodas that sort of thing so that the squadron members can pick up something quick while at work. Also sold there is all of the squadron swag. This could include everything from patches to coins to tshirts, whatever. All the profits from said sales usually go towards the squadron Christmas party or something similar. Hoops
  16. Very nice work, the kit is a good canvas for skilled painting and weathering, as the basic shapes are very simple.
  17. Great looking progress, I'm looking forward to seeing the completed build! Cheers, Hoops
  18. Hoops

    F-14D Tomcat

    Great looking build, congratulations! Hoops
  19. Good Morning, Did you buy one of the Hasegawa Idolmaster boxings in 1/72 because they were on sale and cheap? Did you already have other decals to make a normally marked jet? Do you have those sheets still sitting around somewhere? If so, I'm looking to take some of them off your hands! My two young daughters and I are building a couple of airplanes, and we could use some of the stars/flowers/hearts/whatever to dress up their custom paint schemes. Oldest picked a V-22, youngest picked a F-16 and they are going to have some very bright paint, and could use appropriate decals. Cheers and thanks! Hoops
  20. I've only been waiting for this for 16+ years since I first saw the MKI prototypes. Count me in.
  21. As far as what is legal to load on a P-3, Mk 82,83,84 (depending on which station), Mk 20s, 5" Rockets, 2.75" Rockets (but they need a fairing over the wingtip fuel vents), various mines. Late 70s, maybe Bullpups too, but you'd probably need somebody with more expertise to chime in on the exact timeline. Those may have already fallen out of favor. The bigger question would be, what would actually be loaded. Bombs were probably regularly dropped for training, most likely Mk 82s. I'm curious what others will have to contribute on inputs. Cheers, Hoops
  22. Very nicely done, I think you did an especially good job on the weatheriing. Cheers! Hoops
  23. Congratulations! A well done Tomcat, whose decals are those? Hoops
  24. Very nice looking build, congratulations!
