  1. Had an excellent trade with Rusty_M (Mark Rustine). Deal went smooth as glass, excellent communication, kits well packaged for shipping. You can't go wrong dealing with Mark! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA

  3. Same here in Louisiana, Freezing temps and snow early morning then mid 60's to low 70's in the afternoon, except this week! Stay warm! Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  4. I maybe wrong but would a canopy from an Revell 1/48 Bell AH-1W Super Cobra (04943) kit (or any of the other re-boxings of the kit) work? Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  5. check out this website: http://www.ninfinger.org/models/sovietsp/lunokhod.html This maybe a start, I too have that kit waiting in the stash. The vehicle pictured in the photos was a full scale working model on display at the USAF Museum. The colors in the pictures maybe misleading but I have not checked my kit instructions for the color call outs. Hope this helps, Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  6. Unless things have changed since I was at US Army flight school back in the early 80's, the Army provided initial rotary wing training for Air Force pilots but a lot has changed since I walked the flight lines at Ft. Rucker. Placing the MH-139 at Maxwell would be close to the initial entry training source when newly graduated Air Force helicopter pilots are assigned to the MH-139 training. Just my thoughts but others may know more, Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  7. Apogee Rockets had or still has one in 1/70 scale which is probably more detailed than your old Estes 1/70 scale. They are a bit on the high side price wise but you get what you pay for. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  8. Also used in the cockpit of US Army UH-1 Hueys, OH-58 Kiowas, and AH-1 Cobras. I can not speak of the other military services as I served in the Army and having flown those 3 aircraft while in. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  9. Yes, that is actually a piece of leather to help protect the wearer from the metal in the buckle assembly. Also helps on a hot sunny day to prevent burns from the metal. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  10. The Estes Saturn 1B went on sale today from Estes. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  11. This aircraft, N214XX, a Mi-17V-5 is owned by Red Star Helicopters in Las Vegas, NV. I saw it (minus the red star & with the aft part of the engine exhaust very sooty) this afternoon at the St. Landry Parish Airport (KOPL) in Opelousas, LA getting fuel. I will post pictures later as I have to transfer pictures from my phone to my lap top. Back in the 90's, Ft. Polk, LA had 2 Hips & a Hind for threat training at the base. When this aircraft took off it appeared to be heading to Ft. Polk. Steve Sliger Greenwell Springs, LA
  12. Civilian Bell 206 B model Jet Rangers had the option of short or high skids. The reason you see more high skids is because those skids are used for the Off Shore Float option for those being flown over water ant the added benefit of giving additional ground clearance for the tail rotor. I flew OH-58C in the Army and when in the field, we were always safety conscious about landing at field sites due to the shorter ground clearance of the tail rotor due to the short skids on the aircraft. My first civilian job after my Army days was flying Bell 206 (B III, L, L-1, L-3, & L-4) aircraft in t
  13. Also, there are several different styles of "sliding windows" windows for both the front and aft windows. Also you can just leave the windows the way they are and model an ex-military airframe being used by a "Public Use" agency (State & Local Law Enforcement, State Wildlife Management, Federal State Forrest Management agencies, etc.) . I saw a privately owned ex-military OH-58A aircraft at the airport I am based at a couple years ago. It still wore its well worn OD paint scheme minus all the US Army markings and Had a Civil N number instead of the US Army aircraft tail number. T
