  1. Years ago I built a F-4E late model from an early model E and an S Hasegawa kits in1/72. I am wondering if anyone has tried doing the same thing in 1/48 using the SWS kits?
  2. Im looking for some advice on Alclad Metal colours for P-51s. The Eduard 48th instructions say Silver for most and the control surfaces super Silver.
  3. I am trying to research what would be a standard load for a Gulf War F-4G. Most of the reference material I have seems to contradict and good clear pictures are limited. In thinking 2 Harm, 2 sparrow, 3 tanks and an ALQ-184 would be a fairly standard load. Other loads suggested are 4 Harm, 2 sparrow and jammer or 2 Harm, 2 Mavic, 2 sparrow and a jammer and also suggestion that they may have used Harms and cluster bombs towards the end of the conflict. Any guidance would be great.
  4. Hi, I have just purchaced the Hasegawa 48th Hellenic F-16 Two seater kit. It doenst come with much in the way of a weapons load and have been uanble to find a decent reference. Could anyone tell me what the current load out would be?
  5. I received a Kinetic Hawkeye from my good lady for Xmas, a great kit but i was a bit disappointed by the lack of decal options does anyone know if there are any bright coloured sheets in the pipeline? Regards Pete
  6. I could do with some serious advice before tackling my next project, a current Lakenheath based F-15C using the Hasegawa early boxing in 48th. The 48th kit I have looks great although I realised as soon as I opened the box that it is very early 'C' model. I dont have a bottomless budget but do plan on getting the Airies Burner cans and cockpit but what else do i need to get this up scratch???
  7. Good Morning, Im looking for some help and advice with Hasegawas new 1-32 P-40E kit, before i start attacking the sprues I would like to know if anyone has found any pit falls with the kit? or anything i should look out for on the build. Im not convinced of the two decal options but there doesnt seem to be too much else out there. Im Tempted to try an RAF Kitty Hawk but not sure what conversions are needed from the E.
  8. Hi, can anyone tell me how much work a Hasegawa F-15C needs to make an accurate representation of an F-15C in current deployment? I know the Revell Kit only takes a few mods to represent an E model but i would also like to do an up to date C in 1-48th . Regards
  9. Thats good news, My best mate will be happy he loves the KC-135 no other kit ever made requires so much, filler, masking tape or swearing to build!
  10. For Mildenhall 100th ARW decals check out Wolfpak decals, sheet number 72-005
  11. Its really strange as i can't find this kit listed anywhere in the UK or on the HLJ site. Was this a limited release to the USA only? it does seem very exspensive compared to earlier releases of this kit.
  12. Good day to all, can anyone confirm that Italeri are re-releasing the AMT kit of the KC-135 Stratotanker with USAF/French markings??? Regards
  13. Im working on a Hasegawa block 25 F-16 in 1/48 Im going to use the great lookiing Afterburner decals for Viper Wing Kings and model an ANG aircraft as in Combat in Iraq 2005 -2007. What i'm looking for is some suggestions of typical load outs for for this sort of time period. Regards
  14. Many thanks for your help have ordered 2 sets of Afterburner decals (never tried them before) Think i better order myself a couple of Tamiya C models while im at it!!
