    Airbrushes Question

    Are you in the US? If so, I highly recommend Coast Airbrush in Anaheim.. Excellent customer service with fast shipping and decent prices.

    1/35 modern MBT best kits

    I think the Meng M1A1 AIM kit(TS-032) is amazing. Edit: Sorry for resurrecting a year dead thread....but I'm building this one now and the thing fits together beautifully, has a fully functional suspension with torsion bars and is incredibly accurate.

    Academy 1/48 F-15E "Seymour Johnson"

    I thought the instrument panels were different.

    I already bought the GWH F-15K, but what needs to change from the F-15I to make it an F-15E?

    Academy 1/48 F-15E "Seymour Johnson"

    I figured by your name that was the case. Everything I've read said that the GWH Eagle is the best and I've been meaning to build it. This gives me a reason. I already nabbed one of the D-Corp Slam Eagles off of eBay.

    Academy 1/48 F-15E "Seymour Johnson"

    Are the short cft stub pylons included in the box, too? Or do I need to find resin ones?

    Otherwise, visually, everything on the F-15K is the same as the F-15E except for the engines?

    By non-extended cft stubs, you mean the port and starboard side weapons mounts that were replaced with shorter ones because the originals were cracking?

    Thanks for responding. So Revell kit it is! I already have a Hasegawa weapons kit, so I'm only concerned about the OIF updates to include GPS and the LAU-128 missile launchers....And decals, as the ones provided with the kit are garbage.
  10. Has anyone built it? If so, what were your thoughts on construction and accuracy? I know that the engine bulges are over-pronounced, but what else? Wanting to know if this is an acceptable substitute to the Revell F-15E.

    No grenades for you!

    MCT is Marine Combat Training, it's where all Marines who aren't Infantry go for 3 weeks before we go to our MOS school. I was Amphibious Assault. ITB, which is the Infantry Training Battalion, I think that lasts 2 months, maybe 3. And that is after the 13wk boot camp.

    No grenades for you!

    That's what you get out of 8 weeks of basic, I guess. In the Marines we got 13, but we didn't throw grenades until MCT. That sucks for those soldiers, I loved throwing grenades and flashbangs. But as Geoff said earlier, where is this country going where one of the basic tools of any soldier is being dismissed from training, and no one has a problem with that, just because the noodle arms in the Army can't launch a pound of metal and explosive 25 meters?

    Question about F-4B/N RIO Control Stick

    Awesome. Thank you so much. I've been searching and searching for a definitive answer for this for quite some time.
  14. So, the RIO's weapon steering joystick on the right of the console....I thought it folded out of the way when not in use, but I've also read that the way Academy did it was wrong. Can anyone tell me the right way?
