    Kitty Hawk 1:48 Su-34

    Some news on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/song.wang.5076/posts/2083726548552626

    Decals for ordnance in 1/32 scale

    I'm not sure about Mk. 82, but TwoBobs did a bunch of missiles, AIM-7, 9, 120; Begemot has covered most of Russian weapons.

    Which 1/48 SU-35?

    Regular KH kit is good enough for in-flight build IMO. It needs straight nozzles which kit provides. The cheapest option is $54 on eBay.

    Mostly LSP kits for sale

    Fedex is a bit cheaper but I afraid customs brokerage fees on Canadian size will kill the difference.

    Quiet Compressor

    I think this one will be hard to beat: https://www.amazon.com/Master-Airbrush-Model-TC-40T-Single-Piston/dp/B00WBT7PTW/ref=pd_cp_201_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00WBT7PTW&pd_rd_r=Q0EBG08D1W0QB5BANTKN&pd_rd_w=6chUa&pd_rd_wg=Gh0QP&psc=1&refRID=Q0EBG08D1W0QB5BANTKN 47db and $120 I could also recommend Aztek AC500 which I have been using for about 15 years but it is way more expensive and has less features.

    My Ebay listing

    This link brings one to his own selling page, not yours.
  8. I'd call it decent if I could get in to the base. My timing is really bad, either they don't let people in or when they do, I'm not there.
  9. Yeah, got mine on Monday, but being about 6000 miles away from home all I have left is listening to Bears and Blackjacks from other side of Volga.

    OT--Anti-Virus Programs

    I use built-itn one on win10 systems and MS security essentials on win7. No problems at all. However, I still beleive that best (and sometimes worst) antivirus is one's own head.
  11. They face fierce competition from MiG-s, Su-s and other Russian stuff.

    Israeli F-16 shot down over Syria

    Israeli sources (http://www.israelhayom.co.il/article/535185) say that crew was concentrated on hitting it's target and didn't perform evading maneuvers on time. IAF is still investigated whether pilots operated ECM as instructed. Here is google translation link: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=iw&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.israelhayom.co.il%2Farticle%2F535185&edit-text=
  13. Well, I'm yet to build my first one. Plan is 1/32 Israeli RF-4E, maybe next year.
