  1. I’m going to get the MK83 bombs. I need two for VF-102 during OEF. And two for a commission build for a F-18E of VF-115 from OIF. This is good news.
  2. Sprue Brothers is top notch. I ordered some GT Resin F-4 intakes and one was broken. They hooked me up with GT Resin right away. GT got the new intake to me in about a week. BTW, a shout out to GT Resin for their great customer service.
  3. Best wishes. I guess I discovered your products too late. I’m just glad I was able to get the F-14B update.
  4. It’s cool that they don’t have the “tuck and roll” seat cushions.
  5. I'm really happy with the GRU-7 seats in the F-14B set.
  6. It was a pleasure doing business with The 48ers. I ordered the Steel Beach F-14B update set.
  7. That's very good work. See, you around the forum.
  8. The Internet, it’s serious business.
  9. I’ll get in touch with you when I need your parts. I really like your GRU-7 seats.
  10. Back in the mid 80s, I tried doing the Waldron placards on a 1/32 Tamiya F-14A. I got totally frustrated and gave up. Shelf of doom time. I never did finish that kit.
  11. Shep Paine called it "gizmology". And, back then we didn't know any better. Funny thing is Shep Paine sure had a lot models and dioramas on display in museums. I remember guys using model railroad chain hooks for canopy latches.
  12. I'll always remember a Francios Verlinden quote about model building. To paraphrase, "If you are building an F-104, and it looks like an F-104, and it doesn't look like a vacuum cleaner, you have succeeded."
  13. I ordered the Steel Beach F-14B Conversion Set from the The 48ers back in December. I had a good email exchange with Ilias. He tracked down the package about a week ago. It was stuck in ICS for a few weeks. Well the package finally arrived. It looks like someone punted it around the building. The resin set was fine because Ilias and his crew had done a great job of packing it. And, yes I'll be ordering from The 48ers again.
