    Werner's Wings UH-1D/H Decals and Resin available now

    Any chance you or Kittyhawk will revise that scissors link that curves around mast so Control Tube aligns with mast??? May be just the size that makes accuracy difficult or near impossible??? The one draw-back of what's really a nice kit. Bo

    MIA, the Original AH-1G Cobra!!

    AND, 48th scale!! Bo
  3. A Model site has a Section called. AH-1 Cobra and notability missing is the first Cobra, the AH-1G that flew in Vietnam!! Geesh!! When will they ever learn!! Many decals just waiting for a kit to put them on!! Kittyhawk???? Bo
  4. Out Freakin' Standing!! Clear right? Clear Left? Clear!! Bo Roberts
  5. Thanks, Niels. Loon No-Cut Conversions made it 'Simple' for this 'Simmon'! Bo
  6. The Loon No-Cut Conversion IS the entire Fuselage with rudder. The rear windows wasn't a perfect fit.probably my doings?? Bo
  7. Here’s my latest effort using Loon's No-Cut resin conversion. All paint are various brands acrylic. Comments? EDIT: My biggest accomplishment was, taking photos, posting them here via photo hosting site, ALL with my iPhone!!!! This Edit is with laptop. Now that's SOMETHING for this olde Stone Age relic!! (I'm so olde, I spell olde with an 'e'!!) Bo

    Kursad!! You just made my day!! Week!! Month!! Year!!! Way to go!! Bo
  10. Fun build that represents those that I trained it at Ft Wolters, Texas. I previously built the Revell 32 tooth kit; but, wanted one in 48th so my non modeler friends can see relative size to my collection of other 48th scale subjects. Added new interior and cyclic and collective pitch horns on swashplate. The kit has it's limitations; but, one thing I noticed and rectified was the Skid Tubes were smaller than the structure members of the tailboom!! Made fatter skid tubes!! Comments welcome. Bo
  11. Any updates on the ATC decal sheet to compliment ur existing T-6 and T-33 aircraft??? If I knew they were coming soon, I'd bake a cake and start on one of these kits!! LOL!! And Don't EVEN mention ur coming UH-1decals!! Sorry we're working ya so hard, Kursad!! I hope the rewards are worth it!! Coming to the Arlington, Texas show Saturday??? Bo
  12. Based on the UH-1D/H??? Kittyhawk may thinks so; but, they're NOTHING alike!! Maybe seats??? Guessing if Floyd had any say, he'd be kicking ans screaming AH-1G Cobra you dummies!!! I sure would!!! A Bell 212/UH-1H does have it's place; BUT, it come AFTER the AH-1G and even the UH-1C/M Hueys!! Bo

    Kitty Hawk 1/48 UH-1N Twin Huey

    One of these days, one of these days, SOMEONE will make the much overlooked AH-1G Cobra!!! In 48th scale!! Why in the world didn't Kittyhawk jump, with both feet, into the first COBRA???? What are they thinking?? (Probably because of the parts in common with the UH-1D/H?? Of which there's NOT any!!) The AH-1G Cobra was the first, from design up, attack helicopter!! Used extensively in Vietnam with TONS on marking to put on them!! Kittyhawk Management needs parts of their anatomy thumped, numerous times, for this MISS!! Geesh!! Why not a new UH-1C/M??? It soldiered on for years, as the ultimate Gunship, until finally replaced by the AH-1G!! Get your STUFF together Kittyhawk!!! Don't make me have to come in there!! LOL!! Bo AND, two bladed helicopter models take-up much less room in ur display case than does their 4-bladed counterparts!!

    Have you ever had ......

    Brazil wax??? Hummmm!! That sounds painful!! EDIT: Back in High School and American Legion Baseball, one of my catchers use to call me 'Pearl'!! Coach asked once, "Why does he call you Pearl"? I came up with a quick response, "It's because my fastball looks the size of a pearl, I throw so hard!" LOL!!! That WAS my feminine side!! Bo
