  1. 1/48 RF-4 Phantom. Which Kit Is "Good"?

    Ah yes ... now I remember those threads - thanks, Don. Glad someone found it useful. Thanks. Yes, flew the C,D, E and Slatted E (and ferried an RF). Great airplane ... way back when! Gene K
  2. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Thanks for the words, Bob, in particular about the FB groups. Sad if in fact ARC, BM, HS, LSP, Z-5, etc are "drying up" since I really enjoy the folks on those forums. The format of forums seem to be much more organized and easier to follow than the FB links I've visited ... but then, my FB experience is extremely limited. At any rate, I spend way too much time as it is on the computer, so a FB account is not in my future. Gene K
  3. 1/48 RF-4 Phantom. Which Kit Is "Good"?

    Thanks for that info - makes the kit worth a second look. Have you seen sprue shots, and if so, can you provide the lin(s), please? So the question would be: does the nose fit any other 1/48 kit ... like perhaps Academy? Gene K
  4. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    "Some" of us don't do Facebook ... maybe more than you realize as concerns the [more mature] modelling community. That's really too bad for me since your communications are the reason I'm interested in and buy AMK. I agree totally with Red Dog as concerns the silent rational majority. Gene K
  5. 1/72 Revell Mystére IVA

    Gianni, Hello from long ago. I really admire this build so far ... outstanding details. Did you finish???? Gene K
  6. Yes, I'm interested also!! I'm late to the party - excellent build, as usual for you. I have to be more vigilant ... so have checked your profile box that says "Follow Member". Gene K
  7. Zoukei-Mura 1/48 F-4S Phantom Build

    Gary, What needed correction on the kit's splitter plates? Just one magnificent build with an extraordinary paint job!! Gene K
  8. Good grief ... your glass really is 1/4 full ... almost. You had to resurrect the "Phantom fuselage bug"?? My ZM Phantom kit is magnificent, including the fit!!! Gene K
  9. CBU-2 Cluster Bombs on F-105's

    Thanks for that link ... impressive web site! Gene K
  10. Two F-4J Blue Angel questions

    Gene K
  11. Any further thoughts, Darren? Gene K
  12. Good info, as usual, Ben. Thanks. Gene K P.S. I like your Profile picture ... memories of Chicago?
  13. 1/48 Zoukei Mura F-4C and F-4D

    Me too!! Along those same lines (but seriously), I was bemused and amused at last year's IPMS Nationals watching a couple of brash modellers obsequiously fawning The Old Man trying to get free kits in return for "reviews". He graciously took their names. The ZM "crew" and their displays at IPMS shows are always a highlight for me! Gene K
  14. 1/48 Zoukei Mura F-4C and F-4D

    GOOD GRIEF!! Someone at ZM/Volks should really (!) ask an English speaking person who has some knowledge of airplanes to proof product descriptions ... . For example, on the page linked above (that has the descriptions of the differences between a C and J&S models) there are errors such as: calling the Air Refueling Receptacle an "Oil Receptacle"; the location pointed to for "Cartridge Starter" is not even close to where it should be; etc; etc; etc. Makes an absolutely thoroughly researched product appear not so. Gene K
  15. Ed, Magnificently crafted threads ... I really appreciate how much time and effort you put into them (as well as the models, of course). Thanks so very much! Gene K
