  1. Monogram/Revell Monogram F-14A

    Hello Juan. These additional photos should help you: What I did: Also:
  2. F-18 ATARS questions 1:48

    There are good photos of the antenna on page 166 of "The Modern Hornet Guide," by Jake Melampy. Hasegawa part M5 has the correct shape.
  3. F-18 ATARS questions 1:48

    Like I said, part M5 (AN/ALQ-126 mounted on drag brace door). Also included on Sprue M are the chaff/flare dispensers, GPS dome for the spine, IFF antennae, and new centerline pylon.
  4. F-18 ATARS questions 1:48

    Larry, That nose gear door antenna will be found only in later Hasegawa Hornet kits containing sprue M. It is part M5.
  5. Monogram/Revell Monogram F-14A

    Fuselage stiffeners were also removed. I added them back with sheet styrene as well as added the vertical tail stiffeners too. Also rescribed the exhaust shrouds.
  6. The Scale Model Critique Group and ARC.

    True. Plus a visit from Moai Vincent would be excellent.
  7. Does anyone know what happened to James Eberling?

    Yes, James (TomcatFanatic123) passed away early Saturday morning. I received a text from his mom.

    That's the underside of the airbrake which you're seeing along the left wing. :)
  9. Blue Angels A-4F Cockpit

    Yes no HUD, actually gunsight, but the TA-4 the Blues had still had the gunsight. It can be seen in the videos.

  12. New 1/48 Kinetic Hornet Kits

    If referring to my comment, I meant the revised Monogram F/A-18C kit which I thought Monogram had corrected in the early 1990s. It does not have the rounded off tails though, which the original (undersized) 1980s release did have. LOL

    Kinetic also left out the intake splitter brace... Hasegawa instructions (part K28): Kinetic:
