    CD48111 - FB-111A

    Thanks Rod! That's what I suspected. I knew the Hasegawa 1/72 kits had the profile right, but didn't think the Academy kit had this feature. Ron

    CD48111 - FB-111A

    Question about FB-111's. Did all FB's have the Astro Tracker System in the nose? And does the Academy FB-111 kit have a different nose than there other kits that include this? Thanks, Ron

    Kitty Hawk AH-6J/M replacing rivets (finished)

    Thanks for the answer Jorge, I appreciate it! Sorry to hear the Catzilla did damage. It's a great build!

    Kitty Hawk AH-6J/M replacing rivets (finished)

    Did you just heat the skids and spread them out or did you actually make cuts to them?

    I'm still alive, but sometimes I question it! I sent you a message through ARC.
  6. I'm still alive, but some times I don't know by how much! How have you been doing? I need to get your phone number again. I was just looking for it a few weeks ago and couldn't find it.


    Here is my info if you don't have it:

      All is good, working midnights all summer, trying to see if I can build something to take to Nats, but I kinda doubt it. My model room/workshop construction is due in August, so I'd like to check yours out (despite it being taken over) sometime this summer , maybe buy you a beer or the like. Hope all is well in Montgomery!

    Just an fyi Kursad, but the link for 144010 EC-121 takes you to the KC-135 sheet.

    Black Buch Shrike Question

    Great, and thank you for the picture! I figured that would be the configuration, but I couldn't find a picture of it anywhere.

    Black Buch Shrike Question

    Hopefully I explain this right. I know I read that one of the Black Buck missions carried 4 shrike's. I have seen pictures of the dual shrike launcher on the left side of the aircraft and the missiles have a staggered configuration with the left shrike being further back of the right. So my question is was the right side configuration the same? Was the left missile staggered behind the right or did the launcher have a mirrored configuration with the left side missile being ahead of the right? Hope that question makes sense. I've been looking at my Great Wall kit that only has 1 launcher and wanted to see if I were to get another kit if the configuration would be correct. Thanks for any assistance.

    Any Ma.K fans here?

    I'm an fan of all those as well. I would love to see a Macross movie, but doubt it will ever happen.

    I just saw this yesterday. https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-producer-behind-it-is-bringing-the-japanese-mecha-p-1818585193 I always loved seeing these back in the old Hobby Japan magazines and it's been nice to see these kits being produced by a few manufacture's of the years. I'm hoping this movie will pan out especially since the original creator is on board as a producer. It would be really cool to see some of these creations come to life with modern CGI.

    Some Deuce help

    I don't think there is enough water to help! I'll bring what I have got done for the next meeting. See you then.

    Some Deuce help

    Thanks Rick and Andrew! I didn't know that sheet existed. Andrew, if you are willing to part with them I could use the number "12" and the bureau number for that Wisconsin jet. All the other markings I have through different sheets. I will gladly pay you for them.
