  1. Deke's flight was the 1975 Apollo Soyuz ASTP flight, not Skylab. But this is a great reference photo of an H-1 enging. Thanks for sharing, Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  2. Hughes Aircraft TH-55A Osage, only because I learned to fly helicopters in one while in the Army a long time ago. Its ugly but it has a place in my heart and I agree with Habu2 on the T-38. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  3. Pappy, I am trying to remember from my Army Flight School days back in the early 80's. We flew the UH-1D/H with those aux tanks during the instrument training phase. I seem to remember fuel lines came out of the top of the tank and connected to ports on the sidewalls of the rear cabin. If I still had my Army UH-1D/H Huey -10 I could be more precise. I am sure there is somebody who can be of more help. After I graduated flight school, I never flew a Huey again. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA USA
  4. Hi Larry, I have a complete Squadron Vac B-52 canopy set if you need it. Contact me off board at sandy55961 AT aol DOT com Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  5. Hi, Will you be reprinting this sheet in the near future? Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  6. KursadA, I received my sheet last week but did not get to take a look until last nigh (at work out of town). They are Excellent! Thanks again for all you do! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  7. Yes Sir, that too! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  8. I was at Hood 84-88, I was assigned to A Troop 7/17th Cav, 6th Cav Brigade Air Combat. When our unit was chosen to be the first to field the AH-64A, the unit was reflagged as 3/6th Cav when the Apaches arrived in early 1986. I loved flying the Cobra! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  9. Caracal Models CD48043 is an option as it appears to have all the same decals on it. I was thinking I had the Caracal sheet but when I checked out my Kinetic Boxing of that kit I saw I did not. But when comparing the kit decals to the Caracal sheet, they look almost identical except some minor rearrangement of some of the markings. Also, the Caracal name is listed along with Cartograph on the kit sheet which you posted. Hope this helps, Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  10. Like Floyd, I too flew Cobras in the Army except I flew the "S" model at Ft. Hood, TX back in the mid '80s. Our unit did not upgrade to the "F" model as we fielded the new AH-64A Apache. There maybe other Cobra Pilots here but I only know of Floyd. Yes, I would buy one and build it as a static model. That is an awesome model! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  11. It's to bad there are not any injection molded 1/32 scale kits of the AH-1s or AH-1F Cobra. I would like an S model as it was the one I flew in the Army back in the mid 80's before my unit fielded the AH-64A Apache at Ft. Hood, TX. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  12. I have only seen one 1:1 scale up close in the flesh and yours is looking pretty awesome, especially at that scale. The pilot told me that an older helicopter pilot had asked him how he liked flying the 90 knot dog whistle. The nickname is appropriate as when the engine is at idle, it has an extremely high pitch scream like a whistle. I worked at a heliport in South Baton Rouge that the owner let the pilot/operator fly his Alouette, in support of a contractor to FEMA after Hurricane Katrina. It was an interesting aircraft indeed. Awesome work, I can't wait to see the completed model! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  13. Excellent Kursad! I will be looking forward to this one! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
