  1. Yeah, that was one of the pics I found after posting here. I'll build it using the Tamiya's 1/32 kit and already ordered a pair of BRU-57 smart racks in resin. But I don't really like the loadout in the pic, can I do it with a TER + two GBU-12 or a single GBU-31 in the port wing? Also: can I built it with stations 2/8 empty or with only AN/ALE-50 in one of them ? Cheers and TIA again!! Sergio 😊
  2. I thought so, but the pics I found let me confused... πŸ˜–
  3. Hi, Bill, sorry for taking so long to answer. Thanks a lot for your suggestion, I did it before but didn't get any result, just one pic of 0361 before it arrived at Spang. But I did it again and found lots of photos this time, I probably goofed with something. No need to be sorry for reminiscing, I always like to hear stories from people who used to work with what the majority of us, modelers, only see in air shows...☺️ Thanks again!!
  4. Hi, guys I want to build this Spangdahlen Viper but I have a doubt: in April '13, was it already in Have Glass finish? And does anyone know what was that donkey's story? ☺️ Cheers and TIA!! Sergio Menezes πŸ™‚
  5. Great!! That solves my doubts and a problem. I got my Snakeyes from VideoAviation and asked Maurizio if he could add two extra bombs. He said OK, but forgot it, so I only got the normal 8-bomb set. With that MER configuration, those eight bombs will be enough, since I will use three on each MER and one on each outside rack!! Sergio 😊
  6. What was the reason for that "crossed" configuration?
  7. Those must have been some tough times, Gary, I'm sure...
  8. Guys, I understood that on the Skyhawk one MER position would remain empty, so as to not interfere with the MLG door. But I couldn't really see how many bombs the MER was carrying. Would it carry five or 4 bombs?
  9. Yes!! And that is a thing makes the subject even more interesting!!
  10. Whoa, Rex!! Thanks a lot, I'm having a great time reading all your stuff and I'm just in the beginning!! I really love that kind of info!! πŸ˜„ I'm currently building a USN A-4F and two USAF F-4Es. I want to load the Skyhawk with two MERs on the inside rack and a single bomb on the outside rack. with a drop tank on the centerline. One Phantom will have two MERs on the outside rack and TERs on the inside racks, plus an ECM pod, the other will have only missiles, an ECM pod and drop tank on the centerline... I'm sure I'll get some ideas from your material... Thanks again, cheers from Brazil!! Sergio
  11. Were they plain and simple OD? Or there were variations? Another thing, was it common to see regular Mk 82s and Snakeyes loaded on the same jet, i.e., an A-4F Skyhawk? Cheers and TIA, Sergio
  12. I'm building a Hasegawa G-14 and remembered that a long time ago I probably donated my kit's drop tank to a friend... We can make it as a trade or sale, but I'm open to donations - but I'll pay postage through PayPal, of course. Cheers from Brazil and TIA, Sergio Menezes :)
  13. Hi, guys I'm about to start Tamiya's F-4E Early. My budget won't allow me to buy afternarket correct engine nozzles for it, so I'm looking for the Revell kit ones. I thought I had a pair of them in my spares' box, but could not find it. If someone has those parts and is willing to negotiate them, we can work something out, I have lots of parts and spare decals, in 1/48 and 1/32 . Cheers and TIA, Sergio :)
  14. If you are building your KH Foxbat and will not use the bombs and racks provided, I'd love to have them! We can work out some deal, I have lots of spare decals and parts, maybe I can help you... ;) Cheers and TIA from Brazil!! Sergio Menezes :)
