  1. Hi, Please come by the GTR Tables and say hello. I will have some new items in both scales for sale as well as many kits...cleaning out my stash. Jake Melampy will be with me at the GTR tables, which are located between Zoukei Mura and Wing Nut Wings tables. Hope to see everyone there! Gary
  2. HI Dan, This week. They shipped the end of last week Thx GH
  3. Dunlop does not make tires for the F-15. Your choices are Goodyear or Michelin, and the choice is yours unless you have a specific reference you are duplicating. Tires are not assigned like engines. With the GT Resin wheel set, you get your choice of both sizes of lightening holes for the main wheels in each set. The set also cones with the shimmy dampener.
  4. I would suggest that you contact them and point out the issues you have. Most all of the companies farm out the Decal Art work, ( I know GWH did this for the F-15 series). to private parties and don't get into the details as you do. They may very well do as you mention, but you will never know if you don't ask. It may save you lots of unnecessary aggravation. GH PS: I really like you stuff!
  5. Thanks for the kind words guys, IT was real relief when I finally finished it as it was a huge project. Next up is a RF-4C/E based on a Tamiya kit. Either going to do a USAF ODS "C" or the Greek "RF-4E". I am very intrigued by the Greek jet as it was the only Recce built with Slatted wings and elevator. Cheers, GH
  6. Hi, , What I should have said is that we never sold them separately. They do come as part of the F-15 Vent set GTR 32015. SB should have them listed in a day or so as I just sent them a restocking order that arrives today. Sorry for the confusion. THX, GH
  7. HI, with the Trumpy 1/32 F-105s, the problem that caused the flattening out of the canopy profile is just the opposite of what you describe. It is the Instrument panels that is too tall that has caused the issue. When they designed the fuselage to fit the panel it effectively pushed up on the fuselage part flattening it out thereby removing the curve of the real aircraft. Thinks of the tall panel as pushing up on the fuselage. The canopies were then made to fit the fuselage eliminating the curve flare of the true profile and causing the error. The issue with pouring Clear canopies it one of material make up. Mercury used to be a prominent component of clear resin and made it possible to cast clear copies, as it requires mold and resin temps to fall within a specific range while under vacuum for hours. Clear resin of the past 10-15 years is formulated to be safer to use by eliminating the mercury, but the affect is clear parts, especially of any size, almost impossible to make. China does not have these restrictions on resin composition, but in the US and Europe we do....hence the lack of clear parts that are cost effective and of an acceptable quality.
  8. My latest recently finished project. Pictures up close not the best as it is an old I phone. F-4G Wild Weasel - Details Base kit is Tamiya F-4EJ with extensive scratch building to convert to an F-4G Wild Weasel. This model served as the basis for the GT Resin F-4G Wild Weasel Super Set available at Sprue Brothers. The model took many hundreds of hours to complete over a six year period. The markings represent an aircraft that took part in Operation Desert shied, Operation Desert Storm, and Operation Southern Watch. These aircraft were maintained I pristine condition, even in an extreme desert environment. The biggest component was the fading of the paint. The aircraft represent the condition it was in as it returned to Nellis Air Force Base at the end of OSW. Shown are the 8 confirmed SAM Radar kills and the Wild Weasel mascot on the left splitter plate. Stencil markings were very basic. I chose to build the model with the Slats and flaps extended to develop those products for possible future release and as something different to display. Scratch Built parts of Build: · GT Resin Entire Cockpit including Accurate WSO radar officer panel and controls and accurate pilot office changes of the Geasels. · G Resin Mk 7 USAF Seats w/Eduard seat belts · Air Scale Instrument and Placard decals · Air Scale PE instrument faces · PE Detailed canopy frames with Air Scale decals · GT Resin Chin pod with Scratch PE WW antennas · GT Resin Slatted outer wings · GT Resin Extended inner wing slats · GT Resin Dropped flaps with fuselage details · GT Resin Belly strap · Eduard Brassin Wheels and tires · Additional Landing gear details · GT Resin TACAN, UHF, antennas on fuselage top. UHF is at an angle per the actual airframe, it is not crooked. · GT Resin Wild Weasel fin cap · GT Resin Wild Weasel Small antennas on each side of nose and fin · Brass tubing for Rear drain and Parachute door “T” handle · GT Resin LAU-118 Launch rails · GT Resin AGM-88 HARM B Missiles · GT Resin AIM-7M Sparrow Missiles · GT Resin ALQ-184 ECM pod with Sparrow well mount · Master Model Pitots and AOA probe · Eduard F-4E exterior PE set · GT Resin seamless intakes and fan faces · GT Resin Exhausts · GT Resin Correct fuel tank vents over engine nozzles · GT Resin F-15 Style Center Line Drop tank with Anti-sway bracing · All stores have threaded metal anti-sway braces installed · Speed Hunter decals · Mr. Color Finishes · Model Master Finishes · Tamiya detail chalks · Various oils

  13. I'm building the 1/48 Has. RF-4B and I'm installing the GT Resin seamless intakes, but my instruction sheet is dark and I can't tell for sure where I need to be cutting the kit parts to accommodate the resin. If someone has photos of their  mod. or can help me determine where I need to cut I would sure appreciate the help! thanks! 

  14. Harrier please????? You have been teasing us for years now.
