    Hasegawa KC-10

    Nicely done Els, did you know Draw Decal has a couple of 1/200 KC-10 Sheets in AMC grey scheme? Either Travis or McGuire base aircraft are available. I found my old build from the 80s which was brush painted. I would like to repaint it in the delivery scheme but I have not been able to find an aftermarket sheet yet

    Airfix 1/72 E-8C 93-0597

    Well, I have actually been working on this one the last week. I was not happy with the paint finish and few little things so I have rubbed some of the paint back and filled a few seams that were bugging me. I managed to break off the nose gear leg which will go back on this weekend. After working on a 1/72 E-3D as well I realise the FLightpath antennas are around double the size of the actual. I am not going to bother replacing them. Hope to repaint and progress this one to finally get it off the bench. See it is on the bench!

    Was the A-10 ever considered for export?

    When Australia was in the market for a Mirage III replacement in the late 70s/early 80s the A-10 was one of 12 or so types in the initial list of considered airframes. I think it was culled pretty early in the evaluation process, not sure if it was offered with another airframe to fill the air - air roles the A-10 lacked.

    Some cool Sci Fi from Shizuoka Hobby Show 2018

    I think you mean Jeda on both counts in regard to the X and U wings 🙂

    This forum software does allow for 'likes' to posts, Britmodeller has used them since changing over to the same forum software as ARC. Its just a case of turning the functionality on.

    Revell 1/144 AN-124

    Another lovely build from The MadHatter studios. I didn't know you could get these marking for it. Pitty I got rid of my An124 kit years ago.

    SBY 2202 1/1000 Andromeda

    The added detail looks great Si, not familiar with the kit, how long would it be? I would love to try one of these.

    ModelCollect 1/72 B-2A Stealth

    I am Si, looking forward to seeing this build in the flesh. I am working on a couple for the ACAM display at the moment. At this stage I will be there most of Saturday and Monday Arvo,

    Minicraft 1/144 KC-135 series

    Not sure about the nose shape issue on the KC-135 series, but the windscreen shape is off. This can be fixed with a windscreen decal. The Minicraft 707 series of kits uses the same fuselage parts for civil and military boxings, so if it is boxed as a military version, e.g. E-3, E-8, etc it will still have the same civil fuselage with the shape issues.
  15. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa P-3C kit modified as an interim configured AP-3C. I built the kit as A9-757 with the 10 Squadron 60th Anniversary anniversary tail markings. I added the AP-3C antenna fit with scratch-built parts (using the Hamilton Hobbies AP-3C conversion set and pictures for reference). Decals for the scheme are from DekLs, Harpoons from the Hasegawa IV weapons set and MK36 Destructor mines were modified MK82s from the spares box.
