    Cold war, Vietnam, Desert Storm, RAF, RAAF, Israeli and Russian aircraft. (Middle Eastern sometimes...). 72nd has been my chosen scale, but I'm building more 48th these days

  1. The people at RESKIT make outstanding parts. Recently picked up the B-58 wheels and main gear trucks. 48th scale. Can't wait to build them! (Gotta get the fuselage open for the Lonestar cockpits and rescribe it... Wings and engines are done!) Have a few wheel sets that are beautiful... Can't say enough about their quality. DET1460
  2. I was never a fan of the Lightning, George... but you've changed my mind! Awesome build! Beautiful finish! WOW!!! DET1460
  3. Nice job! Especially like the home-made upgrades. Really nice sentry! Well done! DET1460
  4. Never met a 111 I didn't like, especially when it's as nice as you made it! Good job! DET1460
  5. I saw '12200' at the AF Museum in '92. Went back in '11 and it was gone. No one there seemed to know what I was talking about. It was the grandfather of ALL AF Phantoms. I was disappointed, but I managed to survive the trauma! 😉 DET1460
  6. Beautiful job! And the Tiger Meet markings was a great choice! Well done.. DET1460
  7. Agreed. The airplane never got the accolades it deserved... along with those who flew them! Maybe... someday... DET1460
  8. Appreciate all the replies, folks. I was a crew chief at Plattsburgh when they first arrived. Impressive aircraft. At the SALT talks in the early 80's one thing the Soviets demanded was the immediate removal of the Varks from Europe... (England) because they saw what an effective strike platform the machine was. It was never given the celebrity status of the F-15 or F-117, but they dropped more precision weapons in the Gulf war than all the others combined (I believe...) with outstanding results. And the Hobby-Trumpy kit is, pardon the expression, an abortion that went horribly wrong. And I ag
  9. I think if Hasy would re-release the series there might be some interest from the aftermarket folks to make upgrades for them. I've still got enough of the originals that I'd go broke buying them! As I've said before... the best kits ever of the F-111's made. And they're over 34 years old. If only Hasegawa would do a 48th series... Oh ya! Wouldn't that be nice!!! DET1460
  10. Thank god for Reskit, indeed! Let's hope they are well and surviving the Adolph Putin invasion and that the people of Ukraine are going to survive the criminal act of the Russian Third Reich. Sorry, but this whole thing makes me extremely angry. (I needed to vent...) JMHO DET1460 (I love the Reskit products, too!)
  11. Wow! That is sweeeeeeet!!!!!! DET1460
  12. To RichB63 Thanks for the pics! Nice weather detail to add to the 'STAR...' One thing about the kit that's an improvement over the Hasy kit is that there are (correctly) no rivets on the wings. Like I said, nice molds! I like it, anyway! DET1460
  13. Hey F 16 Just got my F-104J/DJ and from the look of the sprues and parts I'm very impressed with the detail and molding of the parts. Gonna make a 'D' of the Puerto Rico Air Guard in VN camou. Looks to be a very nicely done kit. JMHO. DET1460
  14. I was debating on whether or not to buy the early E by ZM... This post convinced me to go for it. Almost done and I've enjoyed the build very much. I only hope when it's finished that it looks half as good as yours!!! Beautiful job! And... Thanks for the posting! DET1460
