  1. You'll still have to go through that process on Ebay in order to sell to customers in the UK. You, me, Fightertown, Phase Hangar, Spruebrothers, and a host of others have all had to stop selling to the UK (at least for the time being anyway). While my line is carried by Hannants, we're still not 100% sure how (or if) this is going to affect wholesale shipments. It sucks
  2. After months of delays and several changes and corrections, sheet FL48008 is finally on the way and the pre-order link is back open! Many changes have been made to the sheet based on additional photos and notes provided by several Marines that were attached to the squadrons during Desert Storm. The size of the sheet was also increased from a 5.5 x 8.5 inch sized sheet to 8.5 x 11 inch sheet. In addition, we have provided different sized tail markings to fit both the Hasegawa and Kinetic Hornets, as well as increased the number of options from 15 to 17. The p
  3. The only item that sticks out as being completely wrong is the USAF specific sensor on the nose. For the Marine Corps Osprey, the slot on the nose where that piece would go needs to be filled in. It doesn't appear to be noted anywhere in the instructions, nor was it mentioned in the review. Overall though, the kit looks really good......not sure it's over $100 USD good, but good nonetheless. The biggest problem at the moment is just finding them!

  5. BDU-45's (inert mk-82) are blue and smooth. There is no reason to have TP coating on an inert bomb. The guidance and control section, as well as the tail assembly would be the same as those used on live ordnance. No, the Navy and Marine Corps does not use inert ordnance that is green in color with a blue band. Throughout my entire career, I never saw an inert AIM-9 that wasn't blue overall.
  6. Got swamped with orders and ran out of several products. All of time has been spent producing and packing orders. Got somewhat caught up and will respond later this morning. For all that purchased items from the list, they're all packed and will be dropped off at the PO in about a hour or two. Thanks and I appreciate your patience. Dave
  7. Not at the moment. However, I've learned from another modeler that the stripes from my currently out of print sheet, FL48005, fit the 48th scale Mk-82's I've released. I may do another print run, or break up the sheet to include decals in future sets. Still up in the air at the moment. Spruebrothers has 5 of those sheets left at the moment. Thank you for the support and I'll be posting an update regarding the BRU-55 later this week. Lots of lots of things that go boom! With three fellow modelers and a fellow Marine helping out with CAD work,
  8. Currently being designed : LAU-7 BRU-55 CVER Also, 1/48 Mk-82 with BSU-86 production is in full swing.....
  9. The 1/32 scale BSU-86's came out amazing and are now in full production. The 48th scale sets will follow after the new year.
  10. First test print will be going on the printers in the morning. Our sincere thanks to L. Story and Ryan McQueen for their assistance with the design of the BSU-86 fin.

  11. Gentlemen, Had a few things come up earlier this year and this list had to be put on the back burner. My apologies to those who's emails I never got to. Trying again with an updated list. I have the following kits to part with. All are complete with no work done unless noted otherwise. Prices in USD and do not include shipping. Payment by PayPal preferred (must be sent using goods and services). If interested in anything, please send direct email to the following address : flyingleathernecks@att.net Please send an EMAIL!!
  12. Yes to both. The plan is to cover as much ordnance as possible this year. I currently have two fellow modelers and two fellow Marines assisting with CAD work, so among the four of us, we should be able to do quite a bit.
  13. Just an FYI for anyone interested. All of these mines are on the schedule for 2nd qtr of 2021 in our new ordnance line.
  14. Here is the current resin list, all of which are available direct, as well as from the following retailers : Spruebrothers - US Hannants - UK (Not all available yet) Lucky Model - HK (Not all available yet) Platz - JP (Not all available yet) ( ) Denotes qty per set https://www.flyingleathernecksdecals.com/c/172-resin FL172-2000 F/A-18A-D pylons 'early' **In production FL172-2001 F/A-18A+/C/D pylons 'late' FL172-2002 FMV Tail Mod for Dream Model AH-1Z FL172-2004 TSS Turret for Dream Model AH-1Z **In production F
  15. **Added USAF TER's to the line up, as well as chaff/flare buckets FL48-8030 TER-9/A Mod (High Speed) for F-16 FL48-8031 TER-9 USAF FL48-8032 AN/ALE-39 Chaff/Flare Buckets FL48-8033 AN/ALE-39 Chaff/Flare Buckets with Flanges FL32-2030 TER-9/A Mod (High Speed) for F-16 FL32-2031 TER-9 USAF FL32-2032 AN/ALE-39 Chaff/Flare Buckets FL32-2033 AN/ALE-39 Chaff/Flare Buckets with Flanges (CAD / Product shown)
  16. They'll be done in 72nd scale. I've already released 4 items to date and will slowly add more over the next few weeks. https://www.flyingleathernecksdecals.com/c/172-resin
  17. It gets a little better. I've been talking to Richard VanZandt, who designed the F/A-18A-D pylons for my line, as well as the F/A-18E/F pylons for Phase Hangar. He recently completed pylons for the A-10, F-15E and A-7D/E. When the F/A-18 pylons were created, the suspension hook points were designed so my ordnance suspension lugs would match up for easy attachment. The other pylons are designed the same way. Basically, all of the ordnance and racks that I design and release will work perfectly with all of the pylons released from FLD, as well as PHR. I'll also be expanding the ordna
  18. They're almost identical. However, and as you're probably aware, some of the later USAF TER's had a different shaped tail cone. The very aft end was a hexagon shape instead of round. Then of course there are the high speed TER-9's. As we're designing these with different bodies/components for each part (nose/tail fairings, ejector units, strong backs, etc.), we can literally do any one of them. This, by the way, is the plan and I'll be adding those product numbers after Christmas. Yes, the primary reason I decided to do them. There are some really nicely detailed MER/TER
  19. I've been wanting to do them for a while now, especially with my new ordnance doing better than expected. Getting help with the CAD work for the fairings pushed them to the front of the planned releases.
  20. Scheduled to be released in January are correctly sized MER/TER/BRU racks. Each will be one piece and 3D printed. Simply clean up, paint and attach to model. Suspension points on the ejector units will be designed for our ordnance to fit snugly with no modification needed to either the rack or bombs. Created with assistance from MALS-31 Ordnance, VMA-231 Ordnance, the Marietta Aviation History Center, Gerry Whiteside and fellow Marine, Lex Story.
