  1. The 0833 kit which I have, being the grey dragon boxing neither has the bay included... Maybe through 1999.co.jp which has much sprue shots/parts diagrams in their photo's of the kits...
  2. Wow Bryan, what a nice picture! I guess this is in the 70s? With the T-38A in the back. What strikes me is how that Polish roundel got stuck on that Hog Sabre. Thanks for sharing!
  3. To come back to the canopy issue, The Special Hobby F-86L (long wing) has 2 vacform canopies. Anyone know if the spare could be used for the 86H? Thanks in advance!
  4. I have the Fujimi F-40 kit, but please mind I have next to nil knowledge on this matter. In this kit the manual says the droptanks are also 200 Gal. However the shape between my SH H and Fujimi's is nowhere similar. Are they usable too for the H (with the idea that they are shapewise correct?) or only for earlier versions?
  5. It has something to do with the artwork rights of the paintjob, as far as I heard...
  6. They are frequently using mixed loads. For example when Ops Unified Protector was in full swing, the 77FS F-16Cs out of Aviano used mixed loads too. One side there was a Harm loaded and the other pylon had a rockeye leaflet dispenser with the wingman having a double GBU-38/54 onto a twin rack. Other loads were observed too, but the timespan I was there they flew like this. The defensive armament of a pair of both Amraam and Sidewinder rockets was carried too with an AN/ALQ-184 on the centerline and Sniperpod under the intake. Greetings!
  7. A quick note, the book in my previous post covers F-14 Ops during Iraqi Freedom
  8. In Osprey's Combat Aircraft 52, there's a picture of the supersonic pencil refueling from a VFA-115 18E Super Hornet, with the config I earlier discribed. The F/A-18E in the picture is 165784, modex '204', which was equiped with an Aero D-704 ARS, according to the picture caption. So being refueled on a TARPS mission, only 1 AIM-9M is visible on the 14D's shoulder point, with the forward 'bombcat' pylons empty. The aft phoenix rail next to the pod is not installed. The bomb adaptors aren't visible either on the forward fuselage Phoenix points, so not sure they're on whe
  9. It all depends on the timeframe, but if you'd do the Tomcatters D, in their last cruise,it would be higly likely by a 4 bag + one pumping bag equiped Super Hornet
  10. Wow, looking good. Is there any chance there will be a set in 1/72nd scale?
  11. Weren't these Qs? And the Rs were retrofitted to have the secure comms as a standard, so that might be it, however I'm just guessing.
  12. Indeed, Looking at their previous work, Clear Prop would be a harsh competitor to ICM if they eventually release their Flogger. And I hope they don't wait too long either for their Su-25 release, but that's a bit to much sideways. Lets hope they keep us posted so at least we can drool over our screens while the kit takes shape!
  13. I already have a 23MS, MF and BN from that company which name schould not be mentioned (seemingly in Gabor's comments 😉), so these need at least to be joined by a few UBs, an MLD and one or maybe two 27s. So come on with it. Except the 27 maybe, these are findable for ICM for a good measurement. I hope they take the main landing gear difference into account when they get to the MLx versions.
  14. Ooh, fart, that's very good news, however, how will I ever be able to convince my wife about that being good 😁
  15. Indeed, those chinese variants were also spread across the world to make some very tasty modelling subjects. I also hope the FT-7 could be included too when that Fishbed nephew is properly adressed in 72nd
