    Tamiya 1/48 F-16C. Was it a sales disappointment?

    I have three in the stash and I'm primarily an armour builder! I think it did all right... Jim

    Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey Team tragedy

    Parker Tobin was in the same grade as my daughter at MCHS in Stony Plain - it really is a small world. I'm with you Scooby, no sympathy for that driver... Jim
  3. I realize this is an older post, but yes, they did. M50 with composite hull. Jim

    Whatcha gonna build?

    I think I'll start out with an armour piece, one I've had my eye on for a while, a Husky AVGP with late upgrades. Will be using the Trumpeter kit. Also a PB test... Jim

    Happy 150th Canada!

    Happy Canada Day Gary! Went to my little home town July 1 parade and two Hornets flew over at 10.44! Wasn't ready for a pic, they just roared over and were gone! Nice and low... Jim

    Canada 150 Group Build?

    I'm in! Would be my first GB here, at least they give me some motivation. Have to narrow down a subject, but the new Kinetic Hornet has been calling out..."buy me, buy me". Jim

    CD72058 - B-52H Stratofortress

    Timely thread - I scored an Italeri reissue B-52H (have the LSM engine set but never found the kit!) and the Monogram B-52D at a recent show. For obvious reasons I'd be interested in Carswell AFB birds - the Italeri kit has one scheme for Carswell at least. Chris - we'll have to order a couple sets, one for each of us!! Jim Carswell

    CT-133 detail pics needed

    Timely request, I took these last week from the one at the Comox Museum in BC. The chromate colour is at odds with previous info though, maybe both are correct? HTH, Jim

    Where to buy R&R Hawk 127 Cockpit/Nose Correction?

    Yeh, I e-mailed him a few days ago too, no response yet. Jim

    What did you get at the Hobby Shop today?

    A couple things found in Calgary yesterday - a R-G 1:48 Gr.7/9 Harrier for $35 CAD and the Trumpeter 1:72 F-105G for $26. Not bad deals! Jim

    Aaargh! 1:72 Italeri Griffon vent

    Hey, thanks for the lesson Junior, I was building crappy fitting Monogram kits before you were even born. What is this 'adjusting and dry-fitting' you speak of? ;) Not that it's a big deal, just wondering if it had been encountered before. Just another typical (sh)Italeri kit. Kudos to you Guys who built them. Anyhoo, some filler will be required after said adjusting/dryfitting/sanding/filing/shimming/cursing: Jim
  13. Has anyone successfully built the 1:72 Italeri Griffon or Twin Huey? Any builds on-line somewhere? Could they make the engine housing/shroud area any more complicated and poor fitting? I don't remember the Fujimi kit giving me so much grief... Jim

    Alaska Airlines Salmon Thirty Salmon Decals

    Here's one I spied in October at Seattle, passing through on the way to California. Thought it was pretty neat. If it's even the same thing yer talking about. I'm baffled by the incredible array of airline markings visible at any major airport. And I thought there were a lot for F-18's! Jim Edit-A-ha! I finally got it! 737= "Salmon Thirty Salmon" D'oh.

    The new Academy F-18A is almost here.....

    So yer saying I shouldn't be in a rush to convert the Academy 'C' kit I just got . No problem - I'm sure I can figure out something to do with it... Hey Scoob - don't forget my Harrier next week! Jim
