  1. I´m looking for Harrier Gunpods, the version that comes with the AV-8B in 1/72. as far as I know only the Hasegawa-kit has them. Anyone having them in their spare? Shipping would have to go to Europe, so any possible european stashes please check first! 😉 HAJO
  2. Lovely! Great job on the camo! HAJO
  3. Yeah, I haven´t made myself fully clear. Of course there were "worty" targets in Somalia, but not necessarily "hard" ones. I always wonder why the Barret is called "Anti-Material Rifle", because it implies you´d only shoot on vehicles, equipment, etc. with it. I don´t think any sniper using it would switch so lighter stuff just because of the official designation... HAJO
  4. It also gives some new light on all that "the M82 Barret 0.50cal is only an anti-material rifle"-BS - don't know of much material that would justify as a target in Somalia during that time... 😉 HAJO
  5. Thank you! You may change your year on the frontpage of ARC, it says 2010... 😉 HAJO
  6. Thank you very much, very helpful! Although I'm still undecided what to do now... 😉 HAJO
  7. Hi Eric, it IS helpful, since I now know that it will take some effort (nose shape) and even additional material (gun pods and chaff/flare-system). Removing things is not a problem, and I tend to ignore different bang seats. So, what´s wrong with the Hasegawa Harrier? I may turn to this option if it´s usable. HAJO
  8. I´m planning to do an AV-8B in 1/72. Since I like the new Airfix-kits, I´d love to simply use one of their British Harriers and convert it into an AV-8B. Possible without bigger changes or completely nuts? HAJO
  9. I converted the Revell Seaking into a SH-3H, using spare parts from the Fujimi kit: Maybe my WIP helps a bit. HAJO
  10. Monogram in 1/48 does not include the dual Sidewinder-rails. HAJO
  11. Now I´m getting asked if I want to download the homepage when I try to access aircraftresourcecenter.com. Message says "You want to open the following file: Type: text/x-server-parsed-html (214 KB)".... HAJO
  12. Happy birthday! Thank you for making this spot so valuable and interesting for years now! HAJO
  13. This was another project for a collegue and friend of mine - the guy with the interest in strategic weapon systems... 😉 During current research he had learned about the project "High Virgo", an Air Launched Ballistic Missile that has been tested from a B-58. Best is to watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVtosAjWUvY The build of this relative old kit was plain and simple, I used Caracal Decals to have markings for the test airframe of Convair. Great decals, I have to say! As you can see, we realized a "flying configuration". 😉 The "High Virgo"-missile is scratchbuilt from a 1/48 Sparrow and a 1/288 Booster of the Space Shuttle. Cotton was used for the rocket smoke, which of course is not fully realistic - the original missile had a different appearence due to the temperatures and speeds, but it sure highlights the whole idea! And the best shot as last! HAJO
  14. Cool, Broncos! Will watch with interest! HAJO
  15. That´s a great idea for a display, and very well executed! HAJO
  16. I´m sure the kit is sooooo 70ies, but you made a great model! HAJO
  17. Some pictures of my recently finished MH-65D Dolphin by Dreammodel in 1/72. Overall I was quite pleased with the kit, although there are some things that either don´t make sense, or have only minor details, or are simply missing. The construction phase was quite nice, I added some stuff in the cabin to give it a crowded look: Since I didn´t had a M14 rifle, I simply used a German G3, which looks quite the deal in this small scale. For the M240 I ordered some aftermarket stuff by Miniworld that really impressed me: OKB Grigorov provided the sniper rifle: Pilots were added and the fuselage halves closed, but at that point I noticed the Dolphin was a tail-sitter. To counter that, I added a a small lead ball (fishing weight) that I disguised as some sort of buoy, seen here behind the pilots seat: Another close-up of the now painted M240: A search-light had to be added from the spare box: You can also see here the wheels, which have no details at all, and the floatation devices. These didn´t come with the kit, I simply cut out some thin paper in the correct size and glued it on the hull. A "bungee cord" for stabilizing the M82 was done with an elastic thread: Decals were fine and good to use, although the sheet misses the white stripes below the cabin and front doors. And if you are doing the "white" USCG-version (Retro-scheme), you won´t have the red diagonal stripe for the tail... Anyway, pictures of the finished model: HAJO
  18. Oh, I had that experience when they showed The Rocky Horror Picture Show at my university! People dressed up, rice throwing, water pistol shooting, singing, dancing... It was a blast! So, we Germans can do that, too... But not too often. It´s not serious then, and we do feel uncomfortable. 😄 HAJO
