  1. Executive Officer Kane - Alien

    Looks good from here.
  2. F/A-18F update for Hasegawa 1/48 kits

    This is the best price I've found on a Growler, or F-18F: https://smile.amazon.com/Hasegawa-1-48-EA-18G-Growler/dp/B004OSIKVA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1515936563&sr=8-4&keywords=18+growler Avionix/Black Box has a late model cockpit as well. If you watch Amazon, you can find Avionix stuff at really good prices. I think I got mine for 12$ or so.
  3. Executive Officer Kane - Alien

    If your looking for 1-1 scale reference, they used chicken breast for the scene where the egg opened and Kane looked in.
  4. The Book Thread

    That's an excellent book. Check out "War of the Rats" by David Robbins. A fictionalized account of Zaitsev and Stalingrad. It compliments Zaitsev's book.
  5. Best panel wash, non enamel based?

    I use Roy Sutherland's recipe. 50/50 Future and water. A couple drops of your favorite color of Tamiya paint, and a drop or two of Liquitex flow aid. Apply over a lacquer of enamel based gloss/semi gloss. You can then use a swab and Windex to clean up if needed. It will work over an acrylic gloss as well, just need to be careful using Windex to clean it up.
  6. Looking for reference pics of F-14 intakes.

    Check here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/133600999@N07/albums/72157672955408356/page1 and here: https://www.facebook.com/Gunfighter-Models-599423356891663/ Verlinden's F-14 walk around book also has some good intake shots.
  7. Horrifying Landing!

    And any landing you can still you the airplane after is even better....

  10. Specific kits you sold and bought back later?

    I actually sold and bought the same kit. Sold an Italeri Ah-1 at a club swap meet. About a year later I decided I needed another one. Went to a shop in the same town the swap meet had been and found one. Got home and looked closer at the box, and it still had my hand writing on it.

    Hopeful;y these will help, A-6E at the Naval Aviation Museum.Click on picture for more.
  12. I saw this one on the Ebay looking for something else. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Box-Cockpit-F-4B-PHANTOM-NAVY-Set-Item-48056-J4-19-/152595011729?hash=item23875f1891:g:8-sAAOSw6ShZSt-Z
  13. The Book Thread

    Finished this one a short time ago. It's provided inspiration for at least four different builds. https://smile.amazon.com/Vietnam-Air-War-First-Person-ebook/dp/B01M2BJNF2/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1503265338&sr=1-1&keywords=the+vietnam+air+war+first+person
  14. Wild Weasel Phantom.

    There's no kit yet in 1/48. Gtresin mentioned he's got a conversion in the pipeline though. He also makes a 1/32 updated for the C/D Weasel. The 4 antennae on the nose, and a jamming pod (looks like the strike camera) in the front Sparrow bay are the two biggest visual differences. There's a couple other antennae here and there as well. Here's a link to some pictures I have found on the net: There are a couple threads here on ARC, (where I found some of the pictures), and Large Scale planes also.
  15. Call or send them an email. I think it was in their modern aircraft decal binder. I thought I saw it when I was looking for Tomcat decals. They don't have everything on their website.
