    Trying to identify a Seahawk

    Hi all. I found this picture on Pinterest and absolutely love the scheme. I did a image search via google but came up emtpy on additional images. So, does anyone out there have anymore pictures of this helicopter? TIA! https://www.flickr.com/photos/marvinblue007/30731900797/in/dateposted-public/

    Calling all aircraft handlers..

    Thanks heaps for the pics and info Check Six. Love the car parking!! I also got an answer over at steelnavy.com DariusP provided a link to this page: http://navysite.de/cvn/flightdeck.htm Was that what you had put in your first post? Thanks heaps for all of your help!
  4. Hi all. I'm after some information regarding spotting aircraft on a carrier deck. I've heard of places called "the crotch" and "the street", but I don't know where they are. I seem to recall seeing a diagram explaining where different spots on a deck were, do you think I could find it now!?! As I would like to set out the aircraft on my Enterprise model, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks heaps!

    Looking for a 1/48 A-10 DRA

    Thanks for the heads up on this set. I had emailed Wolfpack a while ago about buying a single DRA from them, but they never replied. This, however, is just what I'm after.

    Looking for a 1/48 A-10 DRA

    A Dual Rail Attachment for carrying a pair of Sidewinder missiles. It's a bit frustrating when Tamiya's box art shows it, but the kit doesn't have it.

    Looking for a 1/48 A-10 DRA

    Hi all. Does anyone out there have a spare 1/48 DRA for an A-10? I have the old Tamiya kit and it doesn't have one. I've had a look at Wolfpack's resin set and I can't justify the outlay just for a DRA. Otherwise, can anyone tell me the part numbers for the DRA that comes in Italeri's kit? Maybe I can order some spare parts.. TIA!!

    Looking for 1/48 M-4 Carbines and Flight Helmets

    Thanks heaps for the heads-up.
  9. Hi all. As the heading suggests, I'm looking for a pair of M-4's to put into a 1/48 OH-58D cockpit. I did a bit of a net search and all I could find was Live Resins site. Their wares look incredible, but they don't do 1/48 (as far as I could tell from their website). I'm also toying with the idea of leaving a helmet on a seat, could anyone suggest a place to look for helicopter flight helmets in 1/48? Thanks heaps!

    OH-58D laser detectors

    Another question for you guys; the bar that runs parallel underneath the tail boom: what was its purpose and when was it removed from the fleet?

    OH-58D laser detectors

    Thanks guys for your replies. You've provided the answers that I was after. Strikeeagle801, thanks also for the link to your folder. These pics will certainly help with my build. Andrew.

    OH-58D laser detectors

    Hi all. I was just having a look at Fireball Modelwork's 1/48 decals for the OH-58D. He mentions various subjects, with or without laser detectors. I'm assuming they're little bumps on the nose and body? Could anyone shine some light on some reference pics? TIA!! Also, another question; what version Hellfire are usually fitted to a Kiowa Warrior? TIA!!

    A-10 kits

    Thanks everyone for your replies. Benner; that's a fantastic looking A-10!! Thanks for sharing. That's good news about the Tamiya kit, so I reckon I'll stick with it and try and source a Black Box (Monogram) pit, or at the very least, a resin seat. I'm going to build a Euro-1 bird from the 74th TFS. (Gotta have a shark's mouth on an A-10, its a given!! :D ) My kit decals were already yellowed up, as I bought this kit cheaply from a garage sale, so I bought a SuperScale sheet that will do the trick. Just need some LAU-117's for some Mavericks and a DRA for some Sidewinders to finish it off.

    1/48 Tamiya A-10

    Love this topic! I too have a Tamiya 1/48 A-10 to build eventually and loved the info that you gave. I have a question; did you have any issues with the Black Box tub, even though its made for Monogram? You gave some feedback of your installation, but any details and what you'd do next time to improve the fit (if anything) would be greatly appreciated. TIA!!
