  1. Hi all. Can anyone help, has there been a USN ship with the Phalanx mounted on the quarter deck or above the hangar? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, very quick question to the 60 family experts. Has the USCG ever fitted ski shoes to its Jayhawk’s? I’ve seen the USAF with standard ski’s but not the USCG, got to wonder they would need them in Alaska, if so how is the twin tail wheel accommodatated? Cheers in advance.
  3. Hi all, A quick question for all the P-47 experts out there, I’d like to build either a 1/48 or 1/32 P-47 flown by Cptn Quentin Aanenson, USAF in Northern France, 1944. Does or did any of the decal manufacturers print the decals for his machine, I think it’s Topsy, or at least this one was the one he crashed. Thanks in advance.
  4. andyf117, that’s the one I’ve been working on today. Leaking Tail gearbox input shaft seal. That and GZ are the two we have at Newquay. That’s the one I’ve been working on today, leaking tail input seal, not an uncommon fault on the 92.
  5. A really solid start to the build Tim, I do like the modular approach to building.
  6. Well that’s me corrected then😉
  7. I’d buy and build more than one, especially as I work on the U.K. ones with Bristow😁 I guess it’s the old chestnut regarding licensing, greedy corporate suits with deep pockets.
  8. Do you guys know of any of the aftermarket decal manufacturers doing the toned down decals for the B and F kits?
  9. Can anyone point me to some good reference for the White and grey scheme of the early ‘B’s? I’d like to do one of the smaller ship aircraft, not a carrier bird.
  10. Thanks for the replies, it’s much appreciated. After a weekend of google hunting I’ve drawn a blank on the decals recommend. These too seem rare as hens teeth, but thanks for giving me more than one option to look for.
  11. A question for the Eagle guys on here. I’d like to model my Tamiya 1/32 F-15’s in markings of the Lakenheath based squadrons. That’s all well and good but I can’t seem to find any decal options to allow this, can anyone help me with advice on achieving this? I’ve asked Daco to reprint the 1/32 decal sheet but I can’t see this happening this side of my lifetime, so it’s down to you eagle experts to advise me. Thanks in advance
