  1. USMC KC-130T 165000 VMGR-452 Paint Scheme

    I thought that background looked familiar! Lajes was probably one of my favorite VP deployment sites.
  2. Hasegawa Ki-100-I aftermarket stuff, if any.

    This may be a god place to start: http://www.neomega-resin.com/vector-resin-16-c.asp More specifically, here: http://www.neomega-resin.com/japanese-radial-engines-77-c.asp You may need to do some research to find out what engine the Ki-100 had (Wikipedia?). Good luck and let us know what you decide on.
  3. F2H-1,2 Banshee Cockpit etc

    I'm using Chrome on my Mac and it works fine.
  4. GWH F-15C Oregon ANG kit not having missiles?

    Maybe they're expecting to go the way Hasegawa did. Don't include any weapons in the kit, then later, release a few weapons sets that people will buy. That being said, I don't see why you couldn't use weapons from other kits, including the Hasegawa weapons sets. It probably saves GWH money, by not including weapons, cutting molds costs money…
  5. H-34 in 1/48th by Gallery Models

    The only problem I saw that was noticeable to me was that it's missing the collective lever that goes to the left of the pilot's seat(s). I've got the USAF Rescue version: I find the overall ADC Gray finish to be particularly attractive.
  6. Max Holste Broussard 1/72 Scratch Built Masters & Models

    Great work, Stephen. You must have the patience of a saint. I kept hoping someone would do one of these in 1/72. Then after I switched to 1/48, I was hoping someone would do it in 1/48…
  7. Piper L4 grasshopper

    Mawz is right. The one and only time I flew in a J-3 it was just like he describes. I remember back in the day, seeing the same type of fuel "gauge" on riding mowers of the day. The aircraft I flew in did have a VHF radio, but it looked like something out of the 1940s. The owner had put indoor/outdoor carpeting on the floor, I guess to make the interior easier to clean? I just did a quick Google Image search on "Piper J-3 cockpit" and came up with this, lots of good stuff there: https://www.google.com/search?q=Piper+J-3+Cub+cockpit&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjJgt70oMbZAhVww1kKHU-LCFgQ_AUICigB&biw=1803&bih=889
  8. Bombs for S-3A Viking

    It's kind of cool to see one of my photos being used as a reference. Glad to see that some of them are useful, anyway.
  9. Too bad a new 1/48 Alize was not announced for this year

    I'd like to see one in 1/48 as well. Interesting when you think of the fact that it was France's answer to a need for an aircraft in the S-2 Tracker class. I guess you could say the same for the Gannet. All three together would make for an interesting ASW aircraft display.
  10. T-38A vs T-38C external differences

    Is it possible that it's not that they don't care, maybe they just don't know any better.
  11. 1/48 Hasegawa F-14D boxing questions

    I didn't take the time to peruse them, myself, but these may be helpful to compare and contrast, or see which have weapons and which don't: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=1%2f48+Hasegawa+F-14D This is pretty much my "go-to" site when looking for instructions. It's my starting point, anyway.
  12. How to convert a 1/48 HB A-6A into EA-6A ?

    You might just try finding the old Revell EA-6A. It may not be quite up to newer standards, but it does bear a close resemblance…
  13. Academy F-15 MSIP

    The only place where I had an issue is where the nose attached to the main fuselage. I really should have reinforced that joint…
  14. Royal Australian Navy Sea Fury

    I am kind of envious of the P-8 crews, though. Looks like with the advances in technology that it would b a fun airplane to fly in.
  15. Royal Australian Navy Sea Fury

    What did you do on P-3s, Pete? I was a USN SS-3 operator for 20 years.
