  1. So I’m looking into doing one of their block 30 jets from around 92 into 93. Specifically either 85-1455 or 85-1458. I’m using the 1/72 Tamiya F-16 and I know most of the tweets that I need to do like add the lights to the main gear and delete them off of the nose gear, make a small mouth intake (hardest part) and swap out the later bulged MLG doors for the earlier one’s. but one thing I cant really find out is if those jet were fitted with the beer can RWR on the wing leading edge. I can’t remember if the block 30 had those standard from the factory or if they were a retro fit later on. Does any body know if they had them around this point? One more thing too, did the 86 TFW use the shallow or deep ALQ-131? Also so here’s a full list of tweaks that I have made is there anything else I should add? -Fill two chaff and flare buckets on port side (not the ones right across from each other) -Add lights to the main gear and delete them off NLG door -Make a small mouth intake -Use older style block 30 wheels -Battery is blue -Add actuator to NLG door -Tail top beacon needs to be square? -Early style main gear doors and actuators -Smaller center line pylon off a Revell kit.
  2. They got a beyond line of sight communications antenna in that area.
  3. Shoot makes me even pouder that my states ANG unit is in A-Stan dishing out Hell one price of ordnance at a time.
  4.

  5. I don’t think they fixed the back end of it yet
  6. On a lighter note the first F-35 for the Vermont ANG took its first flight. https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2506657366022327&id=132106696810751&set=pcb.2506661106021953&source=48
  7. Lol. That’s like saying we don’t have good cheese or have crappy winters. Of course we drink good beer here. The problem usually is which one to choose from.
  8. Well when WiANG gets their F-35’s in a few years just go over and ask for some so you can!
  9. Hasegawa is going to reissue their F-111G kit here some time and you can build a FB-111A from it so that would be some great timing!
  10. Unfortunately I’m doing the 1/72 Revell kit. But I could use that as a reference for making a scratched one as I have that kit. I didn’t know they were the same adapter.
  11. I’m normally a jet guy but I go to the dark side from time to time and build helicopters. I’m not as up to speed as I am with jet so any info is appreciated.
  12. Does anyone know or have references for the whiskey cobra from the late 80’s. All I can find are mostly newer stuff. Also does anyone one know if the cockpit was all black around this time as well? also does anyone know which type of hellfire middle they used back then? Or have a decent side view shot of the adapter for the LAU-7 they some times carried for sidewinders?
  13. Turkey is out as of today. https://www.defensenews.com/air/2019/07/17/turkey-officially-kicked-out-of-f-35-program/
  14. Add this one to it as well? https://imgur.com/a/RWI2RY4
  15. Well looks like I need to get kit or two!
