  1. Thought I saw this covered somewhere before but can' t seem to find it in a search. Anybody here ever bought parts stories directly or indirectly from Hasegawa? I'm looking for 1/72nd scale parts from the Eurofighter Typhoon (for extra pylons) and the A-10C parts. Thanks, WARDOG
  2. Thanks again, all. Chris, I'll keep the references in mind, especially if there are lots of weapons load pics! I already have the Flying Colours Aerodecals but will keep an eye out for the correctness of the different masks. MoFo, my friend, since I've had the kit and started buying resin when it became available (this was WAY before Tarangus or Special Hobby put out a "superior" kit!), I do intend to finish the bird I have in hand. I appreciate the link, insightful information (I will actually read it!), AND your opinion but my intent for this post was to ask for information about Hataka colors, not elicit opinions about if something is a waste of time or money. That is something we each determine on an individual basis, as individual modelers. For instance, should I have HOPED & PRAYED that one day, SOMEBODY would make the "perfect", $100.00, 1/72nd B-1B or lay my money down for $50.00 worth of Barracuda resin up-grades for a Monogram kit I bought brand-new for $20.00 a LONG time ago? I'm still $30.00 ahead! Same question with the very old Monogram B-52 kit which has much more expensive contemporaries but they have shape and other issues that will be avoided by the resin items I purchased years ago. I might as well get on with what I have now before I'm either dead or unable to model! Sleepy, yeah, I hear ya! Just want to get closer to the original colors and work from there. Erik_g, got-cha! Mstor, yep! I'm wondering the same thing! :-) Happy modeling, WARDOG
  3. Thanks for the rapid replies, Gents. Eric, I've had the old Heller kit of the Viggen for quite a while (at least 20yrs or so!) and ended up buying resin items from Top Gun, Dr. Pepper Resin, P J Resin and lately, Maestro. When I was able to snag a set of very rare Flying Colours Decals, I jumped on that opportunity to give a fascinating plane the dignity she deserved by finally trying to paint the splinter scheme! I also have the JA version with some resin up-grades and that scheme is ready to go! Wished I had caught you earlier, a visit to the paint shop may have been VERY helpful! :-) JackMan, I have in fact cheched all those sites (and Super Hobby is one of my top sources!) and some of the color info was specious, at best! I ended up with about ten different color guides with only two matching exactly! I love Humbrol and Gunze paints and will probably go with some sort of mixes of those IF the Hataka paints don't pan out! Jenshb, got the info earlier and again from JackMan. Appreciate you all, now I just need some learned opinions about the Hataka colors, hopefully from one of our experienced Swedish mates. Many Thanks, WARDOG
  4. Hi All, About to finish off my last few purchases for my Heller AJSH-37 Viggen Master pitot, Maestro intakes and paint mask in 1/72nd scale and think I might punish myself with the world-famous "Splinter scheme". Problem is, of ALL the color schemes I've looked at on-line, NONE seem to show the correct colors (at least not to my 60-year-old eyes!). I would PAY one of our Swedish mates for a set of color swatches for the two greens, the tan, and the blue-gray used in the splinter scheme! (I can pretty much figure out the Flat Black!). :-) Any way, my question is, does ANYBODY out there know if the Hataka Viggen colors are correct before I lay down my l'Argentine for a set? I'd hate to have to eye-ball the paints by mixing them but this project is on my old modeler's "Bucket List" before my modeler's powers slowly vanish away! Thanks, WARDOG

  6. Hi All, Anybody have resin replacements for the Modelsvit Tu-22 Blinder engine and want to trade or sell their unused kit parts? I would like to attempt to improve my old ESCI kit with resin parts and the better Modelsvit engines. Please contact me at: glynnj(at)swbell(dot)net. Thanks, Glynn "WARDOG" Jacobs
  7. Would also like to see; OH-58D later (larger) engines/sponsors. This would definitely have to be hollow or with metal skids to be able to handle the extra weight of the resin cockpit AND sponsors! WARDOG
  8. OK, I see I jumped the gun on the Gazelle kit. I was under the impression the Heller had a newer release with the Viviane sight and better HOT missiles. My mistake. I have the Heller kit with the extra clear part with the sight and the missile. So I guess I need to add; French Gazelle Viviane sight, HOT missiles and pylons, and antennas - Heller kit Glynn
  9. Man, I didn't know that Heller had a kit for the French Gazelle with the Viviane roof site and HOT missiles! I'm in! ( IF it's 1/72nd scale!). Oooh, I like the idea of updates for the OH-58 too! Let's ask for -58D mods too! I also would like to add; Lynx No. 4(FN) corrected antenna set - any kit (I know, it could be scratch-built by,...). Glynn
  10. I might as well add; Revell Atlantic II conversion - new: avionics cooling intakes on side of nose, forward position in nose, wing pods, dorsal antennas, and corrected vertical stabilizer with short front filet. I KNOW these parts are available from L' arcenal from France but those resin parts are more expensive than the kit! How about making some extra parts for your BEAUTIFUL Atlantic kit to turn it into a proper French bird, Revell?
  11. Wow, ALL good stuff! I guess I should add; Royal Marines AH.1 Gazelle - weps, sight, & cockpit up-date, Bo-105 PAH1-A1 - same as above, and, Super Frelon - corrected, clear resin glazing, & cockpit up-date. Looks like we might be getting some of our wishes done by Air-Graphics (I'm ready to get my hands on the Lynx AH.7!) and I hope they continue to make more stuff. WARDOG
  12. Wow! Rescue types not my cup of tea but, that I'd one NICE- looking Helo! Will wait for a combat version to purchase one. Glynn "WARDOG" Jacobs
