  1. I have the same problem.
  2. They are. Lock-On was a predecessor to DCS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lock_On:_Modern_Air_Combat Growling Sidewinder is a pretty cool channel. Grim Reapers is another. Plus, you can get some DCS info/gameplay from Ward Carroll and CW Lemoine.
  3. Can anyone offer suggestions on shipping kits across the USA? Over the years I have been a bit too "optimistic", and eventually will be putting a part of my stash up for sale here. I have been a buyer, but not a seller, so I know little if anything about shipping. Pros and cons of USPS, UPS. Sourcing Boxes...etc. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  4. https://replikator.club/2021/02/06/tamiya-paint-database-us-federal-standard-colours/ your mileage may vary.........
  5. I love my HP-CS. To me, the ease of cleaning, due to the compression fit of the nozzle design is huge. I don't necessarily enjoy the "fiddly" super small threaded nozzles of most other air brushes. Though, I must say, in hindsight, that I should have picked the HP-BS, as it does have that smaller cup. For some reason, I sometimes "look down the shaft" when painting fine lines. and the large cap sometimes gets in my sightline. Though, Dave's points about cup size above are quite valid. Currently, the HP-BS is ~$112 on amazon. I guess it depends on your style and use case.
  6. It does seem to still be available from eduard. https://www.eduard.com/Aircraft-and-helicopters/1-48/F-2A-1-48.html?cur=2 and https://the48ers.com/f-2a-viper-zero-cockpit-detail-set.html
  7. Doesn't look to be, out of box. plus would seem to be a touch of scratch building for cables and connectors...etc. In a DCS video, the control unit looks to be on the right panel, behind the TACAN controls. I haven't seen a close up of the cockpit just yet to see if it is there.

  8. G-man, are you handy with a jig saw, wood glue and drywall screws? maybe you can try your hand and do like I did, where I made my own. It was a fun little protect, DIY'ing allowed me to put in a more powerful fan. I did use MDF, so it is pretty heavy. I paper napkin'ed the dimensions for the air filter I wanted to use. I did have to hire a plumber to drill thru the foundation to mount a new dryer vent...... It isn't the most "beautiful" piece, but it works great, and IIRC, it was less than $100.00US for all of the materials.
  9. My memory is fuzzy, but I remember from the late '70's early '80's Walt's hobby store on the ground level at Century III mall in the South Hills of Pittsburgh PA. Walt even displayed my Tamiya A-10 in his window! I was so proud.....
  10. California Air Tools for the win. Durable, able to be worked on, and (if you get the aluminum tank) light weight. Also, don't know if you perform car work or light house work, but this compressor is truly a "jack of all trades" for a good bit of "light" work. https://www.californiaairtools.com/ultra-quiet-series-of-air-compressor-contractor-grade/1-0-hp-air-compressors/cat-8010a/
  11. perhaps these links can help: https://ak-interactive.com/product/usaf-european-camo-colors-1980s/ and https://www.reidairpublishing.com/decals/usaf-f-4e-gunfighter-phantoms 5th picture and https://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/f-4/f-4_profile08.shtml euro 1 and https://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/a-10/a-10_profile01.shtml somewhat known as euro 2 i *think* the "other" green is fs34092.
  12. go to nachjager's YT url, and read the caption starting at 9:30 just for 15 seconds. At least with their a6m2b.
