    Think I've found me a new flight sim

    It’s being worked on and should debut in the Hornet some time down the line. Some aircraft down the pipeline which I’m excited for are the Tomcat by Heatblur Sims and Strike Eagle by Razbam. Mark

    1/32 Tamiya F-4E Kurnass 2000

    Huh? How does posting a YouTube link take up bandwidth if you don’t click on it? Mark

    Think I've found me a new flight sim

    The Hornet is still in Early Access so quite a bit of the avionics and weapons have not been implemented yet. It is currently sorely missing targeting pods, guided AG ordnance and AMRAAMs. Mark

    Think I've found me a new flight sim

    Been flying the Hornet in DCS since it came out (at the cost of modelling bench time). It’s still early access and doesn’t have the full suite of features available yet (no AMRAAM and LGB capability, unfinished IFF etc) but it’s been a blast to fly. Eagle Dynamics has been pushing updates regularly and the module gets better after each update. Learning and performing Case 1 recoveries as well as A/A refueling have been challenging so far but I should be able to get the hang of them soon. Mark

    AFV Club 1/35 MIM-23 I-Hawk

    The Raytheon MIM-23 I-Hawk is a medium range, radar-guided surface-to-air missile system developed in the United States. It is used by the Republic of Singapore Air Force's 163 Squadron as part of the island-nation's multi-layered air defence network. In service with the RSAF since the 1980s, the system is slated to be replaced by the Eurosam SAMP/T aka Aster missile system in the near future. This model was built from the AFV Club I-Hawk kit and slightly modified to represent a unit used by the RSAF. It was painted with Mr Color lacquers and weathered with enamels and pigments from AK Interactive. Mark

    Proposal: TOPGUN Group Build for the 50th Anniversary

    I’ve read through both discussions about this group build but could not find a consensus as to what builds would qualify for this GB. Do they have to be F-14s, A-4s and F-5s as they appeared or is the scope wider and includes all USN aircraft involved in DACT? Mark

    Two 1/48 Su-34: And the winner is...

    I seem to recall from the discussion on the HB Su-34 that the wing fence was a late mod and that aircraft which had it would also have the APU on the tail boom (something that HB missed). Mark
