  1. So I was wondering does the F-4E Phantom II 'Chico the Gunfighter' have the early or late model centerline drop tank? From the reference photos I have its hard to tell, I know the plane was used at the end of the Vietnam War but when it comes to ordnance and equipment it wouldn't be surprising if its the early war version. My OCD/AMS was hoping someone may have the answer or some info to cure this terrible affliction ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Dan
  2. "The Golden BB!", I saw it looking at me in the mirror clear as day!"
  3. So I'm hoping to do a Tamiya 1/32 F-14D Tomcat conversion of the last F-14D Tomcat catapult shot BuNo 164341. I have been able to find some photos of it so far via google and such but was wondering if anyone has any or knows where to find some that depict some of the upper surface of the fuselage for weathering and such. I found one photo like this but its mostly in shadow/dark lighting and would love to do the last F-14D flown at sea (and I do love USN weathering....) Any help is appreciated. Dan
  4. sounds like a plan! I'll get the payment made once you've got the total with shipping calculated. Thanks again! Dan
  5. Actually if itโ€™s not too late could I also have the 600 gallon fuel tanks too please?
  6. Thanks for letting me know, I think just the conversion set is what Iโ€™ll go with. Please let me know the total amount with shipping and I will arrange the payment. thanks so much! Dan
  7. Sounds good to me, do you accept PayPal? My address is as follows: Daniel Sahling 5155 W. Quincy Ave M102 Denver, CO 80236
  8. That's it! Do you have it available? If so, how much would you be willing to sell it for?
  9. Title says it all, after the USPS fracked up the delivery yesterday Iโ€™m on the hunt again for an Isracast 1/32 F-16D/I Tamiya conversion, please send PM .
  10. Thanks for the heads up, any good recommendations for brand or where to purchase?
  11. So after spending quite a bit of time fixing a resin part that I wasn't able to place properly before the CA glue dried (I fixed it and got it into position after much swearing and CA debonder) I was wondering if there is an alternative glue/epoxy? for resin items that gives you a little more time than 3 seconds ๐Ÿ™‚ or so , any advice is appreciated, thanks. Dan
  12. So I'm researching a couple builds I'd like to do soon, one of which is an F-16CJ from the 77th FS 'Gamblers' based out of Shaw AFB around 2003 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. I've been hunting for reference photos from that time period and it seems that at least some of the F-16s there have a slightly different camouflage that has the darker grey FS 36118 not go as far forward on the front fuselage, and I was wondering if anyone had some good photos of the F-16CJs from that time period I could use, specifically if anyone has photos of serial number 94-0044 I would be most grateful.

    If you're going for a mottled effect, filtering, heavily weathered airbrush work, think Su-27s up around the arctic circle, certain types of Luftwaffe WWII camouflage
  14. I sat down today to get started on decalling the Tamiya 1/32 F-14A Tomcat I've spent the past 8-9 months working on however the decals were terrible and broke apart and I could fix it; so I'm not sure if it was an old and/or bad set of the of the Phoenix Decals 1/32 F-14A Tomcat VF-1. They're out of print and I can't find them anywhere so I was wondering if someone had a set for sale? Please send a PM Thanks Dan
  15. I'm making very good progress on an 1/32 F-14A from early VF-1, circa 1975-76 and I noticed something from some photos (I'll try to post them soon) that the exhausts seem to have this bright metallic "ring" or "sealing plates" and its not just VF-1, several other early F-14 squadrons had these. However, most of the aftermarket exhausts out there don't seem to depict this, and I was thinking of trying to scratch build some but I need some good reference photos of these sealing plates and I was wondering if anyone had such photos? From what I can tell a piece of strip styrene put over the exha
