  1. S-3 Viking 1/48

    There is quite a bit of aftermarket for the S-3 in 1/48. I've got a set of "Early" Fan/Inlet set from Sierra Hotel Models and a metal Scale Aircraft Conversions landing gear set. I don't know that metal is needed, but as I'm adding a resin cockpit, I thought it couldn't hurt (plus I got a good deal oneBay). I also have the True Details Cockpit Set for the S-3B that I think was originally from KMC. Someone also makes a new Sonobuoy Launcher section replacement that has the mods of the S-3B belly area that the S-3B had. You may need to do some searching on your favorite vendors' site(s), but there is stuff out there for it. Here's some pics of the engine set: The photos aren't the best, but you can see that the fan blades are much sharper than the original plastic.

    Outstanding, Boz, thanks for sharing.
  3. Would love to see an Kinetic do EF-1/E-1 to go along with their S-2.
  4. What's the best kit you built in 2017?

    Thanks for the info, Bobo. I did notice that when I went to your albums that the information was there. Sorry… I'd love to see the A-1.
  5. Swiss Air Force

    Very nice, Boz. What scale are these?
  6. Lockheed S-3 Viking/ES-3A Shadow

    Do you mean DGG (Dark Gull Gray)?
  7. What's the best kit you built in 2017?

    Wow, some great work, guys. Zero completions for me this year, unfortunately. Looks almost like the Tamiya Tomcat would get Model of the Year awards from ARC members. Bobo, please include manufacturer and scale on your photos. You've got some really nice models there.
  8. Hasegawa 1/72 OV-1B Mohawk - Options?

    I think Mike West of Lonestar is taking suggestions, it may be worth eMailing hime and requesting that he do these. Although, if he doesn't see a real market for them, he may not be willing to do them.
  9. Swiss PC-21

    Wow! That's very nice work. The PC-21 looks like it's going fast just sitting there! What model and scale, please. I wish there were more Pilatus aircraft available in 1/48.
  10. Lockheed S-3 Viking/ES-3A Shadow

    Wasn't the Sensor Operator's area done in that tan/cream color?
  11. Swiss Air Force

    postimage.org is a good photo site as well. Easy to use and uploads pretty quickly.
  12. Swiss PC-21

    Unless you pay Photobucket for a subscription, you can't post your photos online.
  13. Monogram Helldiver

    Definitely not the Revell/Monogram/ProModeler kit. Accurate Miniatures also released a variant of the later kit.
  14. Hasegawa 1/72 OV-1B Mohawk - Options?

    Check at Lonestar Models for Cobra Company sets: http://www.lonestarmodels.com The OV-1 set isn't in production, but if Cobra Company did one, it may be worth contacting Mike West at Lonestar.
