  1. Epic! I haven't been this excited since the first shuttle launch. Was too young for Apollo. The formation flying boosters landing will be an iconic image.
  2. I have a spare one of these kits if you need it, and maybe also a spare sprue of the Mk8 bits. Either or both are yours for free if you want them as a thanks for past trades!
  3. Hi Lads, PMs inbound.... And a new want; anyone got Microscale/Superscale 72-371 F-4D 4TFW 67-678 Col. Yeager's plane (or the same decals from the Accurate Miniatures kit)?
  4. Hi again, any idea where I might source the Fightertown decals in both 1/72 and 1/48? I might need that and the DXM set to get exactly what I need.
  5. Hi Brian P; Do you mean 72 decal on 48 kit? I don't quite get how the opposite will work. A photo of washed up tail is in the 3rd link above.. or here;
  6. Hi all, for those in the know, I want to model this jet (at least I think this is how it looked): F-14A-135-GR Tomcat, BuNo 162594, c/n 516, coded AD 136, of VF-101. I'm not sure this is actually 162594 but willing to fudge it. There is another pic here with a different modex; (Dated 4 Dec 2000) This is the jet that crashed in the Gulf of Mexico on mission out of NAS Key West, Florida on 3 Oct 2002. On 5 May 2006, one of this Tomcat's tailfins washed up on a beach W of Cork, Ireland, having floated 4,900 miles (7,900 km.) across the Atlantic.
  7. that F-4N squadron (but not that specific Phantom) is on Superscale/Microscale 72-495 which should be more available than the WP one. http://www.modelingmadness.com/scott/decals/super/ss72495.htm I have it but would need to be something special to trade it.
  8. Any idea on cost of shipping the Herc engines to Ireland?
  9. interested in the 1/72 F-16 sheets. PM sent with email for photos
