    Blimey ! How did I miss THAT ??? Time to break out my slides to see if I shot any Alconbury birds carrying the pod. Deffo didn't notice at the time........

    I never saw a Pave Tack carried by an Alconbury Phantom...........

    F-101B soon from Kitty Hawk

    The single-seat Voodoos from Kitty Hawk need a resin correction set for the intakes.

    I have never got around to scanning my own slides, which probably aren't that great quality either. There are several excellent images of bombed-up Gs at Fairford in 1991 here: http://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=109005

    Modelcollect B-52H

    Indeed, you are right, thanks for pointing out my error - I must stop posting before my morning coffee.......... I do have images of G-models launching with live external munitions from RAF Fairford, but these were taken in 1991 and using iron-bombs. The B-52s deployed to Fairford in 1999/2003 carrying the LGBs, JDAMs and AGM-142s were H-models, so I will obviously need the new H kit to build one of these. I think these already had the 20mm canon deleted.......... so was that the latest rear fuselage configuration ?

    I want to build a G-model with pylon-mounted LGBs, as a watched flying out of RAF Fairford during the Gulf War. Which kit is my best starting point ?

    I'd prefer to read/discuss building kits, learning from others' experience and sharing my own.............

    I definitely don't hate AMK. I'm looking forward to this kit tremendously............. and happy to wait.

    I understand some dealers may have done so.......... but has AMK actually taken any money of anyone yet ?

    Well, I can confirm that this image was taken at Telford yesterday, as I bought one of those Su-27 Flanker books from them - and I picked up several of Hypersonic's correction sets for ZM Phantoms from Jeffrey's stand next door........

    Where was the AMK Tomcat on show at Telford ? I was there yesterday and didn't see it..........

    It might be for you, Galfa........ I'm sure the majority of us are happy to wait until Telford to see the plastic and (almost certainly) to buy the kit(s). See you there, Martin !
