  1. Some A-37s from the from the 604th SOS, 3rd TFW were painted in a pale blue and light gray scheme in Vietnam. Squadron's A-37 in Action book has 5 photos of them plus a color side view. In black and white photos it looks like ADC gray. Print Scale decals has a sheet with the markings for one of the aircraft. OA-37s that were operated out of Osan, South Korea were painted in overall gunship gray. Microscale had a sheet with these markings. As a side note a good friend of mine was able to fly the A-37 when he was in test pilot school at Edwards. He said it surprisingly had a lot of power
  2. Mine looks nothing like the photos. It did have a rough pebbly surface which I have for the most part sanded smooth. Mine does not have the sty rations that yours has. That looks awful. If mine would have looked like yours I would not have recommended it. Terry

  4. The feathers were removed in the early 80's. A friend of mine was an Eagle pilot and he said they were removed because they kept falling off in flight. So the remedy was simply to take them off the engines.
  5. The squadrons that fly the D are converting to F-35s. The D models are being distributed to the remaining C model squadrons. You can find both the C and D models operating side by side. I'm thinking they are probably going to increase the legacy squadron size by doing this and lower the flight hours per airframe.
  6. I would say the detail is good for a 1/144 scale kit. I haven't painted mine yet so I don't know about paint adhesion. And the prices have gone through the roof. They are almost unaffordable.
  7. I don't think it would really matter. If I remember correctly it was only in white when I ordered mine. Also the plastic is really hard so don't be expecting a styrene type of plastic. I need to get busy and finish mine.
  8. It is all one piece. The down side is it has landing gear attached with no gear doors or wheel wells. I build my 1/144 aircraft with the gear up and put them on a stand so that wasn't a detriment to me.
  9. I have this one. It has increased in price since I bought mine. The surface texture is like a fine sandpaper. I have sanded it down some and I believe once I apply some primer I think I can get a smooth surface. Overall it looks accurate with good shapes. Outside of this one I have never seen another 1/144 WB-57F. https://www.shapeways.com/product/96W7AV3AR/martin-wb-57f-canberra?optionId=63380083&li=marketplace
  10. There is a photo of that aircraft in Schiffer Publishings Northop's T-38 Talon from 1974. The aircraft has the early style headrests and has a spoked front wheel. Other photos dated 1976 shows other Navy T-38's still had the early style headrest. It also still had the USAF on the bottom left wing as it is visible on the landing gear door. Other T-38's also still had the national insignia on the bottom right. Hope that helps.
  11. Definitely not FS36440. I always thought they were dark gull gray FS36231.
  12. I've tried Eduard and GT resin. I even thought about building up the opening on the kit with strip styrene but the opening would be to thick. It is going to be something that is difficult to correct.
  13. From what I can tell the burner cans are the same or if different it is hard to tell the differences. Be advised I haven't found any aftermarket burner cans that fit properly. The exhaust cans are extremely tight fitting to the exhaust openings on the real aircraft. All the burner cans I have tried are to small leaving a much larger gap around the opening. If I ever get around to building the model I will probably just have to live with that inaccuracy.
  14. Aggressor TA-4s used the 150 gallon tank on the centerline station on a regular basis. There are quit a few photos out there with TA-4s carrying them.
