    1/72 Scale F-8 Crusader Reccomendations

    Another +1 for the Academy kit, and they've been doing some nice repops with LE decals such as the E with VF-111 and VF-162. It's gorgeous, but yes as mentioned, such a lack of scale love for the A, C and RF-8 in both 1/72 and 1/48 unless you want to go crazy and do weird stuff with resin and vac form. I've said it before and I'll say it again... Kits of F-8A, F-8C and damnit an RF-8A/G!
  2. Hey all, I'm currently in the planning stages of a 1/350 diorama of B-59 surfacing during the Missile Crisis. According to the instructions, it is Ocean Gray, and I'm assuming to the waterline before it turns red? Can anyone confirm if this is indeed correct as it's a little hard to find imagery. Furthermore, does anyone know what the colour Ocean Gray could be in an FS equivalent or similar? Thanks everyone, happy building!

    Hobby Boss F/A-18C RAAF 1/48 HB-85809

    Oh and an SJU-5/6 for the Kinetic kit too... From memory they feature the later square head rested SJU-17s only which is also wrong for our Classic Hornets

    Hobby Boss F/A-18C RAAF 1/48 HB-85809

    Exactly the RAAF Hornets are arguably the most advanced A's around... The tails will be wrong and I'm fairly certain the HB C model doesn't have the required ejection seat, IFF antennas et al. The Kinetic A/B will be the best bet. Alternatively, the old faithful Hasegawa with the M sprue should do you wonders...

    Where's Revell's Extra 330!?

    Thanks for the update MoFo... Damn, was hoping to have something more concrete before year's end. But with all things modelling.... patience is a virtue!

    Where's Revell's Extra 330!?

    https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235031248-132-extra-ea330sc-lx-by-revell-release-in-2018/ Heya Folks, as above, there was mention of Revell releasing an Extra 330. I got really excited and have been holding off on purchasing the gorgeous, but resiny and mildly pricey Icaerodesign variant offering. Has anyone heard about this? Is it still on the cards? Happy modelling!

    Fightertown Decals and the Tamiya Tomcat...

    Oh absolutely! Mid 80's would be great too 😉 Although I do remember seeing a bird in the 90s scheme, the sheet featured the Vf-41 Su killer, VF-84 201 and it's final incarnation as a VF-213 before being tragically lost. SB decals maybe?

    Fightertown Decals and the Tamiya Tomcat...

    I know the current tamiya kits don't really represent what I'm about to say as far as fairings, ecm bumps etc (easily fixed), but even when the Hasegawa kit was king, I felt the 1980's was always a bit underrepresented. I'm thinking the all over 16440 and TPS A jets from VF-1, VF-2, VF-142, VF-51, VF-24...
  9. Heya everyone, As per usual, being a late comer to the hobby means i've missed out on a lot of stuff I actually need for builds... Anyhow, I'm after the Model Alliance MA 48109 decal sheet for Operation Telic Part 1. Even just the portion for the 12b Squadron Tornado GR.4 would be all I need as I can get the stencils elsewhere. Any help would be awesome... Many thanks, A
  10. Hey all, I'm on the prowl for some VFC-12 and VFC-13 decals. Specifically I;m looking for complete or partial of these sheets: Fightertown Desert Bogeys Fightertown VFC-12 Ambush Two Bobs Fighting Omars SB Decals Red Star Reserves Can buy, trade etc. Located in Australia. Cheers all and happy building!
  11. Hey all, Due to a major stuff up with a UK store, who have lost my order (long story that's probably worth sharing) I still don't have these decals. I'm looking for the Fightertown Decals Desert Bogeys FTD48051, am located in Melbourne Australia. Thanks for looking and happy building! :-)
  12. Hey man, is a portion of the decal sheet of this ok? http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10031679n3/40/3 PM me if that works for you man... Cheers,

    Early VF-1 F-14A scheme - decals available in 1/48?

    Hey mate, You're looking for Fightertown decals 48014, https://www.scalemates.com/kits/268148-fightertown-decals-48014-vf-1-wolfpack Keep your eyes peeled on eBay and the forums. Monokio decals did these http://zedhobbies.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/review-monokio-f-14a-vf-1-wolfpack-148.html too. Or if you can grab the Hasegawa kit (long out of production) with the decals, or ask nicely elsewhere you may be in luck. :-) Best of luck man, Cheers
  14. I know unfortunately the postage is as much as the decals themselves, but I do thank you anyhow. Cheers! :-)
