  1. Just to expand, in the F-15 the cockpit indications for a live missile and a CATM are the same. You have to know from the preflight whether or not the missile is live. Regards, Murph
  2. In general each missile type will have a default station that is the first in priority when that missile type is selected. Depending on the aircraft the pilot will have the option of "stepping" between the missiles or the aircraft may do it itself if it thinks the missile is bad, or in the case of an IR missile if the fuselage is blocking the view (missile on the left wing and target off the right side) it may step on its own to a missile on the appropriate side. In the case of the Alaskan F-15 the pilot did not know that he had a live missile on board the aircraft. Regards,
  3. If you're looking for a "go to war" load, then a B28 on the centerline and an ALQ-71 pod on one of the outboard wing pylons would work. Regards, Murph
  4. Courtesy of John Eaton; I can't remember which website these came from. Regards, Murph
  5. Aluminum paint. These are the casings of two B28RI weapons recovered from the B-52 crash over Spain. Regards, Murph
  6. Dave, Have you given any consideration to doing a Mk-82 AIR with the BSU-49/B high drag tail assembly in 1/72 scale? They were done long ago in a mixed resin/etched metal format (can't remember who it was), but have been unavailable for over a decade. Also, the B61 nuke is poorly served in 1/72 scale. The currently available injection molded ones from Italeri/Testors kits are inaccurate and the resin and 3D printed ones are distinctly underwhelming in their quality. Given the high quality of your products which I've seen, they would be distinct step up from those I mentioned above.
  7. Gentlemen, These are last sheets done by Mark Bilas at Wolfpak. Mark had sent these sheets to the printers (Fantasy Printshop) before his untimely passing and they are being issued by Fantasy. They are the company that did all of the printing for Wolfpak and would also offer his sheets for sale at their website, so they are continuing that. Here’s what it contains: Sheet 72-136, On The Prowl. First is an F/A-18C+ from VMFA-112 at JRB Fort Worth in 2020. It is followed by an F/A-18E from the VFA-143 “Pukin Dogs” while aboard the U.S.S. Lincoln in 2020 with Christmas
  8. One of the big advantages of CSWs are their ease of employment. Get in the LAR and hit the pickle button. Regards, Murph
  9. B-52H fuselage wheel wells are primarily gray FS #16473 with some elements remaining in interior green. The wing wheel wells are usually yellow zinc chromate; although, some aircraft appear to have them repainted gray. Regards, Murph
  10. Got mine last week. Very nice. Regards, Murph
  11. This. They also have a host of other resin corrections and additions for the Bone. Regards, Murph
  12. For the D model the primary cockpit color was black. The seats could be either interior green or dark gull gray, depending on the timeframe. Regards, Murph
  13. Had the first Pfizer shot in January and the second in February resulting in nothing more than a mildly sore arm. Regards, Murph
  14. It's great to see those Mk-82s with BSU-86 fins done in 72 scale. I'll definitely be picking up some of those. Regards, Murph
