  1. I wonder if the Zactomodels set would work with the Tamiya kit?
  2. Based on all the info I ordered Trumpeter's F-14A and Zactomodels correction set. I've done nothing but look at finished results from all entries and Trumpeter seems to have the overall shape of course with exception to the intake. I've not yet decided on which cockpit set to go with, I guess we can shift the convo on to that? I was hoping to be able to find Flightpaths carrier deck dio pack but alas, no where to be found so some scratchbuilding may be in order.
  3. Are there AM exhaust nozzles that will fit the Revell kit?
  4. Thanks for the input. Can someone point out exactly the problem with the Trumpeter intakes?
  5. I'm wanting to do a carrier deck dio circa 1980 with a Tomcat, which kit would be the better choice? I'm prepared to invest in tons of aftermarket as well.
  6. Listed on EBay duplicates I have in my stash. In a desperate search for Zactomodels A-7D correction set, I ended up finding several so I will try to sell one set with the an extra kit I have. http://www.ebay.com/itm/252305689538?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2648
  7. I was able to obtain the seamless intake and intake correction part but I still need the canopy correction set. Getting closer. If I have to buy duplicates to get the canopy it's not a problem. I realize these may be coming back but the odds of me getting them before they once again sell out are not good probably. I don't see that he is taking pre orders either.
  8. Well I hope there are some out there somewhere because yes, pockets are deep for this commission.
  9. I use Tamiya Hull Red for modern USN.
  10. Looking for Zactomodels A-7 1/32 Combo set or nose and intake correction set. A client wants to commission an A-7 but is aware of the mis shapened nose and canopy, so hopefully there is one out there somewhere to nail this commission.
  11. Not much to update. I have a few client builds to concentrate on. The Ikea cabinet was indeed going to be used for this with the laucher graphic in the background. I also ordered the CultmanTV decals as well. I am not overly concerned about the inaccuracies on this kit because it is still an awesome display with them. I do need to get over to Ikea and pick up the display because I hear it has been discontinued. More to come soon.
  12. Yes those are the kit engines. Mostly complete, I'll probably use some solder to make the smaller lines.
  13. This is a kit I've been wanting to build for a long time. Finally, I was able to find one on U.S. soil. Now, I'm not going for a super detailed build but simply taking advantage of the awe factor that the size of this kit has. I am fully aware of the inaccuracies and I prob will correct just a few but overall, it will be OOB, with exception to the decals, I decided to use a more accurate after market option. Also, I was so tempted to insulate the F1 engines to add a bit of accuracy but I decided to show the engine detail. I will be displaying the model in launch ready so I will not worry abo
  14. Here is a Polar Lights/Round 2 Refit recently finished. Link to the WIP pics: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Boomstick68/library/REFIT%202015?sort=3&page=2
  15. Are these available to purchase now???
  16. Here is a photo build log of my current two year old project converting a Trumpeter 1975 era CVN 68 into a 2012 era CVN 69. http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Boomstick68/library/CVN69?sort=2&page=1
