  1. Actually FAST pack -- aka "CFT's" for light grays are shaped differently from Strike CFT's. Only slightly. FAST packs are more "straight" when viewing from head on that the more "rounded/bulbous" shape of the Strike CFT. Both types have a different dolly for removal and installation. Found this out while in Saudi Arabia back in the 90's trying to remove a Strike CFT using a dolly for a FAST pack. Also, Pratt powered Strike CFT's now have the same scoop as GE jets. New suite mod.
  2. Yes. The Strike is going through a new "Suite" upgrade. New wheels, tires, radar, 229 style ECS scoops on the CFT's, "tinted" windscreens, and more.
  3. Easily. However, the kit wheels are incorrect for any version of Strike. I don’t know if there are any aftermarket sets of the current wheels (last 3-5 years or so) but North Star makes a great set for Strikes (original wheel configuration).
  4. Make sure you get an aftermarket wheel set. The kit has "C" wheels.
  5. Any GWH reps on this forum? I have some suggestions to improve your F-15's.
  6. From a guy that's spent time in and around those particular jets, he did a mighty fine job!!! If I had a critique it would be that a squadron flagship wouldn't necessarily get THAT dirty. But then again, who cares. I like it A LOT!
  7. Fun fact: The internal ladder WAS referred in the T.O. as the "primary boarding ladder" and the external, the secondary. We started to find internal ladders beginning to crack and the external became the primary.
  8. THANKS! Didn’t think about that. Appreciate the help!
  9. Has anyone seen or know of a S-211 kit somewhere on the planet? I have models of every jet I’m typed in but not of this one. I can’t dig anything up on line. Thanks in advance!
  10. He must not enjoy making money. He could make some side coin just making those.
  11. It’s a good kit. Not completely accurate but the details are better than the outdated Revell kit. It does have the incorrect MLG and missing details from the rear cockpit. For me, not a deal breaker. Overall fit is great.
  12. I believe the OV-10G has the same props as a Metroliner and MU-2. I know the engines are the same. If you can find kits of either, maybe you can cannibalize the props from one to the other. Just a thought.
