  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. It was way better than Maroon 5.
  9. The Internet, it’s serious business.
  10. I’ll get in touch with you when I need your parts. I really like your GRU-7 seats.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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."
  14. At least the parts were intact.
  15. 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.
