  1. A-4 Chaff/Flare question

    I'd guess that if they didn't have the CDS on the tail then there would be 2 buckets by the hook. But it would obviously depend on the variant and time frame you're looking at. To be 100% sure you'd need to know the mod number and/or have photos. And If you can't find a definitive answer for the particular BuNo you're interested in, then it's also likely no one can (or will be bothered) prove you wrong.

    Thanks. As for the base, its from Coastal kits

  6. 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-30MK2 Venezuela AF

    I've started a A-4 in flight. I had a mate mill a square on the rod and built a box section under the wing
  7. photobucket sucks

    I've started using post image and I've looked at a couple of others. One thing I liked about Photobucket was that it had a logical url for your image, e.g. http// phobucket.com/username/folder name/sub folder name/your image name. If you are like me and label your image title-01.jpg, image title-02.jpg etc , when doing a post with a lot of images you could simply past 1 url over and over and edit the last bit. The 3 alternatives I've looked all insert a random string of numbers somewhere in the url which means you can't do this. You have to copy/paste each post individual link . Whilsit this isn't a big deal, and certainily not worth $400 USD, PB's system was definitely better that regard. I can't say I was ever bothered with speed/adds either as I only ever hot linked from there, and after all it was free. Still to cut of the service with no warning is poor and a shame for all those old builds linked back over the various forums. I certainly won't be going back and fixing any of mine

  11. Hasegawa New Releases

    Now I understand, and I agree the Hasegawa A-4 despite it's shortcomings, is still the best kit we have of an A-4 in 1/48 or 1/32 .. That won't change when the Hobby Boss kit comes out unfortunately
  12. Hasegawa New Releases

    I'm not sure what relevance comparing the 1/32 Trumpeter kit against the 1/48 Hasegawa kit is but if it;s because you're assuming the Hobby Boss kit will be a scale down it's not even that from the sprue shot... It looks like a simplified kit but it might be OK for inflight builds. That said, from what I've seen the 48 scale Hobby Boss kit won't be better than the 48 Scale Hasegawa kit, so I agree the Hasegawa kit will still be the best (but IMHO it's still not an "excellent kit")
  13. Hasegawa New Releases

    if you build 1/48 it seems like Hasegawa are just a decal manufacture these days... Still as said above their Harriers, A-4, A-7, F/A-18E/F and F-104 are the still the best IMHO options in 1/48. (although I'd not call the A-4 "excellent", it's OK). They still have the best F-4E/F/G, RF-4 and UK phantoms as well... Although hopefully we'll get better kits of these F-4's soon
