  1. I'm a huge fan of the Gunze Aqueous paints. I thin them with plain old rubbing alcohol and do not put a primer coat down first. I've never had an issue with them peeling when I mask over them. Regards, Murph
  2. Just an observation, my father-in-law and mother-in-law both died within the past thirteen months. They had detailed, precise wills and there have been no disputes amongst the children about anything, but the lawyers are still sorting through the details while the children wait for the estate paperwork to be settled. Bottom line; it isn't a short process even in the best case. In Mark's case, Mill Creek Consultants covered not just his decal and resin ranges but also was the umbrella for his professional engineering services, so there's an added layer of complexity for the family to work th
  3. I would post pictures, but the boards seem a bit weird about that right now.
  4. Some of the Bitburg jets were MSIP by that point, none of the CR jets were though. As you mentioned, the chaff/flare mod was separate from MSIP, and started around 1987 or 1988. By the time Desert Storm came around, most (probably all) active duty Eagles had the chaff/flare dispensers installed, and I would be shocked if they deployed a jet for Desert Shield/Storm without those fitted.

  5. In Desert Storm they dropped some inert GBU-12s on Iraqi equipment that the Iraqis had purposely placed close to cultural monuments. Regards, Murph
  6. I would imagine the list of good points was very short. Regards, Murph
  7. R.I.P. Mark. He was a good friend and will be missed. Regards, Murph
  8. Gilligan begs to differ. Regards, Murph
  9. Happy birthday Steve, and many more. Regards, Murph
  10. Looks good to me, I'd certainly be willing to order a set. Regards, Murph
  11. A four ship of Strike Eagles has brought 80 SDBs to a fight. That would take ten F-35s. If you assume that past the initial days of a conflict the IADS has been degraded enough to allow non-LO platforms to operate then there's a place for a bomb truck. Regards, Murph
  12. NATO was formed to counter the Soviet Union and what became the Warsaw Pact. Both of those went away almost thirty years ago. It certainly is not out of order to rethink U.S. commitments or at the very least question their rationale. If you're interested in where this is trending I would suggest reading one of Peter Zeihan's books or watching one of his YouTube presentations. LINK Regards, Murph
  13. My hovercraft is full of eels.
  14. The Von Karman radome was introduced during the AIM-7F production run, so some had it, some didn't. Regards, Murph
