  1. Looks like an Elta 8222 jammer pod. Available here: https://air-graphics.co.uk/shop?keywords=F-111&olsPage=products%2Fac-055-elta-8222-ecm-pod Mark
  2. Yup. The decals for weapons are provided so it’s a pretty good bet they’ll be included. What concerns me, however, is the lack of decals for the LANTIRN and TARPS pods are a sign that they may not be included. Mark
  3. Regarding the TDDs, the 4 that are on the M are in line with the fins of the missile while the 2 on the F are offset from the fins. Mark
  4. Wonder if @Sio will give away another kit for the first person to post on page 300 😂 Mark
  5. Much thanks for the kind words guys. The opacity of the decals were fine. Can’t really tell the difference between the areas where the decals were used versus those that were painted white. The main issue I found was that unlike other decals which I’ve used so far, these tended to tear rather than stretch slightly. This meant that I had problems laying them on areas where they went over vents and grilles. Mark
  6. Pre-production kit being built. Hips don’t lie. Mark
  7. Noticed that the decal sheet has no markings for the LANTIRN pod and GPS-guided munitions. Hope these are included as the LTS and guided bombs were a defining feature of late model Tomcats. Mark
  8. I’m not sure how much blame you can assign to GWH for not including Bombcat weapons and stores here. The marking options in the box are for F-14Ds before It was commonplace for fleet Tomcats to be assigned the A-G mission. Mark
  9. Hi Rod, I painted the anti-glare panel. Hi, Kit decals were easy to use. I applied them on gloss-coated surfaces and had no issues with silvering. They reacted well with the Mr Mark Softer which I use for all my decal applications. Hi Jonathan, Thanks for the kind words. I used Mr Color 315 which is listed as FS36440 flat gull grey for the upper surfaces. Mark
  10. This is my 1/48 Tamiya F-16C Block 52 Viper dressed up in the markings of the Republic of Singapore Air Force's Black Knights aerobatic demo team. Base kit used was Tamiya's F-16C/N Aggressor/Adversary kit as it has parts to build all F-16C blocks from 25 through 52. I modded the kit by using the metal pitot and AoA probes from Tamiya's F-16 detail-up set. I also scratch-built the smoke system pipe from the centreline station to the nozzle at the exhaust as well as the HMD sensor on the canopy. The seat was detailed using Fine Molds' plastic seatbelts for ACES II seats. Static discharge wicks were made with stretched sprue. I used decals from Miliverse to represent a Viper flown by Lead Solo MAJ Eugene Lim of the RSAF Black Knights demo team. Overall a nice build though the decals did give some problems. Hope you enjoy the photos! Mark
  11. Lol. F-35 going down in flames. Reminds me of Kitty Hawk’s Su-35 boxart. Mark
  12. Don’t forget the ECM blisters under the wing glove. Mark
  13. Here's a photo of one being loaded. Not sure how helpful it is though. Mark
  14. LANTIRN pod, LANTIRN adapter and BOL rails https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10013101 Paveway II bombs and Tomcat bomb racks https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10012005 Mark
  15. Hmmm. The Wolfpack adapter is meant for the Super Hornet. Will it fit a legacy bug? Mark
