    Kitty Hawk RF-101A/C

    I was there yesterday and they had several on the shelf. I didn't get one, but one of the guys I drove up with did. Looks good in the box, but that is as far as I got. I have no interest in the aircraft and it's Kittyhawk........
  3. Gentlemen, I have a new line of self adhesive vinyl masks available for several subjects in 1/48 and 1/32 scale. All are currently listed on Ebay, as well as my web site. The masks retail for $5.00 each plus shipping. My goal is to provide the masking sets at the least possible price. https://www.ebay.com/sch/1775modelbuild ... pg=&_from=https://www.flyingleathernecksdecals.comThanks for looking and have a great weekend!Dave

    USMC KC-130 Crash, Fatalities

    A video reconstruction of the accident. What an absolutely horrifying thing to go through. My heart is broken for my fellow Marines, Sailors and their families. https://news.usni.org/2018/12/06/kc-130t-accident-report-video-reconstruction?fbclid=IwAR00cNfQs95TvhYwW8k-4hQJr2EinEFSvH1aTFroI3fjiNYddDvEzvUONC0
  5. It's pretty easy. You can have reference photos of the markings, but not of the entire aircraft. That specific aircraft has also been extensively covered in photos and decals. The markings were included in the original Hawk kit, Draw Decal did them, as did Cutting Edge. AFV Club could have drawn their inspiration from anyone, or they may have researched the markings just like everyone else did.

    F/A-18A Tail Angle

    Yep, my fault for not checking my pubs before answering. The verticals toe out 1 degree at the leading edge and cant 20 degrees from the vertical. I believe I got the 12 degrees from that 1 and 20 using my memory (which proved to be a bad thing). My reference is A1-F18AC-GAI-000, which is the O-level General Aircraft Information Technical Manual.

  9. Not the news I wanted to read this morning.....We were recently discussing getting together at the Nats! Damn, Damn, Damn. Rest easy brother, you will be missed by many.

    F-14A / D Tamiya 1/48 with Aires cockpit set.

    I have read the Aires set is difficult to fit (as most of their stuff is). However, I have also read the Eduard F-14A cockpit is almost a drop fit. No personal experience with either set though.

    F/A-18A Tail Angle

    The angle is 20 degrees out from center. Do you mean Avionix? Aires doesn't make vertical tails for the F/A-18A. **Corrected my mistake**

    1:48 LANTIRN

    A heads up on the Tamiya LANTIRN pods in the F-14D kit. While there are in fact two pods in the kit, only one can be completed. One of the parts that make up the whole assembly is on the clear sprue and only one is included.

    US navy walking fighter pilots by reedoak

    Norbert, I can swing that. I'm also heading to MCAS Cherry Point in a few weeks and will work on getting you reference photos for the seated aircrew!

    US navy walking fighter pilots by reedoak

    As always, great looking figures Norbert! Any idea when seated pilots may be on the way? Some modern Navy and Marine aircrew in seated positions would be fantastic!
