  1. I made a seamless intake for the F-2A/B, it’s available at Phase Hangar Resin: https://phasehangarresin.com/collections/48001-1-48/products/48043-mitsubishi-f-2a-b-seamless-intake
  2. I saw some more photos of this build on FB; does the kit seem to sit a bit low?
  3. Monogram AV-8A has the seat you want. http://www.zone-five.net/showthread.php?t=24725
  4. No more hobby shops near the base, Nick’s Hobby Shop (formerly Don’s Hobby) closed up shop in the early 2000s. There is a gaming shop near the Michael’s store across from Solano Mall but not much model stuff. The Loose Caboose would be a fun trip to make, just note that Bottle Rock will be happening on May 24-26 so expect lots of traffic in and out of Napa during those days.
  5. Check out Craig’s build here to get an idea of what mods you need to do for the centerline pylon: http://kiwimodeller.com/~kmodel/index.php/forum/38-follow-as-i-build/24670-hasegawa-1-48-av-8b-harrier-ii-vma-231?start=60
  6. If you can find the out-of-production AMRAAM Resin conversion (released in the late 1990s) for the Monogram kit, you can make either a GR.5 or 7. They used to have the Harrier Plus conversion as well.
  7. You can, but you must modify both parts.
  8. Oh I see. Those photos were of the test casts, the main intake and resin parts are smooth. Better photos will be shared (I didn’t take the latest photos LOL).
  9. The photo is a resin copy of the master pattern. I still don’t understand the “outward intake cover” you mention as I didn’t make any intake covers (I don’t use intake covers in any of my builds BTW 😎).
