    KA-6D tanks

    I'm thinking post Vietnam, but I'm still in the planning phase, maybe in the late 70s into the 80s.

    KA-6D tanks

    Thank you for the help Gary. The tanker intruder hasn't been done a bunch in decal form, so I'm looking at what I can do. I have a couple of the Aeromaster Nimitz Cruise sheets that have VA-35 which I'm leaning towards.

    KA-6D tanks

    So I'm planning a 1/48 KA-6D and I have the Cobra Co. conversion and Steel Beach set and have a question, how common was it for them to fly with a Buddy Pod on the center? I would think it's for a back-up for the built-in refueling system. Also, did every Intruder squadron have KA-6Ds? Thanks. Duane

    I have another F-14B kit on EBay. This one I had a couple of weeks ago, but buyer never paid, so here's another shot. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hasegawa-1-48-Scale-F-14B-Tomcat-Jolly-Rogers-VF-103-Last-Flight-w-extras-/303083403489

    Writing a book and looking for photo contributions

    The only thing I've got was a couple of years back a -53 was here at the Hill AFB air show, but I'm sure you've covered them to death.

    Turkish AF F-4?

    I know this question comes up from time to time so I apologize, is there any ideas when a new sheet might/will come out? I'm one of the lucky ones that have your first sheet, but just wondering if another one will come out and will it have any RF-4ETMs with it? Thanks

    1/48 Eduard Tempest Mk V reviewed on YouTube

    Thank you for posting these links. I am working on one of these now, and all the issues that Paul describes are what I'm seeing, so his fixes are very helpful.

    CD144016 - 1/144 KC-10 Extender

    Only one drogue on centerline, and it's off to the starboard a little. If it has the two wingtip pods, the it can do 3 drogues, but this was rare to see during my experience with these, and I hated loading cargo on them before 60K Tunners came along. https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-KC-10A-Extender-DC-10-30CF/1935209/L
  12. Does anyone have one of these in their stash? https://modelingmadness.com/scott/mod/rf4epreview.htm I am looking for one for a long range project to do a JASDF RF-4, so I need these markings. I can buy straight up or work a trade. Thanks, Duane

    1/48 Su-34 Kihbiny ECM pods

    Ordered yesterday, received today...one of the advantages of living just down the road in Utah. They look wonderful, I need to start working on my Su-34 i guess. Thank you Chris!
