    E-2C Hawkeyes

    Picked up the 1/72 Hasegawa Hawkeye 2000, beautiful! Just for a kick, I have the Liberty Bell limited release on the way for a four prop version also. Man I smell a decktop dio coming on, well see. Thanks for the assistance! Jason

    E-2C Hawkeyes

    Ok, I'm building several kits this year. I'd like to include an E-2C to the bunch. Question is with the new release of the Kinetic kit in 1/48 and the 1/72 Hasegawa version, which to chose. I see the usual reviews of the Kinetic kit, but what do the builders actually have to say here. What is the skinny on both kits. Not sure, heck, I may build both scales, who knows. Anyhow I'm thinking the Kinetic kit can't be that bad, seen a couple of builds already, looks great. As for the Hasegawa, I'm also thinking that release is top notch, however I haven't seen one in person yet. Any advise is

    Wanting to build my first Russian jet, the Mig-29. Regardless of scale (1/72, 1/48 or 1/32) or variant, what kit builds into an accurate example of this great jet. Thanks, Jason
  4. Wondering if there is just one kit of a modern aircraft either 1/48 or 1/72 that is accurate, ease of build, contains ALL of the details one would need without having to use aftermarket accessories (which I normally end up doing)! Just want a fun modern build that look impressive, without using another manufactures resin, photoetch, plastic etc..... Any Ideas for someone suffering from AMS and not having a clue what to build next.......LOL JB
  5. Added a couple of other items for anyone interested. Also have had numerous successful trades on ARC before. Thank you again, Jason

  9. Ok, I'm bored! Going to build a 1/72 B-1B from the Revell kit, with a little twist. Just because, I'm going to put Israeli markings on it. My big question is this, what paint scheme? I'm thinking the overall grey scheme such as found on the F-15C, however I may use the three tone? What are your opinions on this I just can't decide caper? Thanks, Jason P.S. I plan on building a tricked out 1/48 version two with the Kansas Air Guard markings also. The 1/72 is just for fun!
  10. Wanting to build a WWII airbase diorama for multiple 1/48 Tamiya P-51D. Ground work is not a problem, an armor builder by choice...LOL, Any guidence on kit manufactured control towers? Especially anything used around europe or specifically England during that time frame. Hangers would be nice also but I really want a tower for the background. Thanks for any advice and opinions. Jason
  11. Looking at the 1/72 Hobby Boss A-10, F-15, F-16, A-7, Eurofighters, F-22 ect... I have been unable to find reviews for these kits. Are they lacking in detail and in fit or are these kits going to compete with Hasegawa and Revell? Any opinions would be welcome. Thanks, Jason
  12. Wanting to trade for 1/72 Hasegawa Phantoms Here's what I have up for trade, Really wanting the 1/72 CVW-19 Combo #942 F-4B/N (Would prefer this one to be sealed if possible) also wanting the 1/72 CVW-15 #956 F-4b Combo F-4J or S kits #879, 812, 855, 858, 911 F-4C/D #918 F-4E #948, 895 I have the Academy F-16CG/CJ with Super Scale #32-221 NM ANG decals, kit box is sealed never opened Trumpeter 1/700 John C.

  13. 1/72 it is then, a guy with 115 would know! :) Thank you for your response
  14. Can't decide on 1/72 or 1/48 Hasegawa Phantoms. Primarily F-4J and S, maybe a couple of E/D models also. I've read good reviews on both scales. Space is not really a concern, but I do have a couple of Fujimi and Hasegawa Tomcats in 1/72. Anyhow, just wondering what your opinions are of both scales. Something from the general modeling community, not just a few independent reviews. Thanks, Jason
  15. Looking at building a 1/32 Phantom. I believe that the Tamiya would be some of the most accurate builds available. I see that there are two J models available with an E and C/D also. Are they all in the same boat as far as accuracy? One more accurate than the other. I assume all build the same. Any opinions would be valuable. I don't mind either USAF/USN/USMC. If I like them, I'll build more. Thanks for your opinions, Jason
  16. Thanks, Makes sense! I'll do that, when the funds allow, Dragon should be out with theirs!
  17. Can't decide between the 1/35 Dragon UH-1D with crew or the 1/35 UH-1 Gunship from Academy. Which is better in your opinion. Like the idea of a crew, but like the gunship also.....frustrated! Jason Brown
  18. Would love to see 1/72 CRJ along with a B-737 and my absoulute favorite the B-757! Be nice to see the Citation X and Gulfstream in 1/48 but would settle for 1/72 also. Jason Brown
  19. That is some awsome stuff! Think I have been swayed towards the Lassen, possibly using some of that Veteran stuff! Thanks fellas!!
  20. Yeah, that's where I'm leaning right now. Would be more bang for the buck so to speak...
  21. Having a case of modelers block. I would like to build Anigrand's 1/72 Titan II for a silo display but also want to build the 1/350 Trumpeter USS Lassen. Anyone build either of them, opinions? They are both great kits. About the same price each. Wow I just can't decide....
  22. Are there any Minuteman III ICBM models, yeah I know it sounds wierd but I have a great intrest in the US ICBM force. So far I have/built the 1/72 and 1/144 Titan II from Realspace and have purchased/built two Minuteman I in 1/48. I scratched one of the Minuteman I into a II. Now I'm looking for a Minuteman III. Would perfer 1/48 however a 1/72 or 1/144 would work also. Anyone know of a manufacturer that I can use? Thanks for any assistance available. Currently working on a 1/144 scale launch facility for the Titan II based out of McConnell AFB. Jason
  23. So, how do these hobbyboss Cobras stack up against the Hasegawa AH-1's? Really wanting to build a few cobras now but not sure what kit to use.
  24. My list: 1/35 Tamiya Dragon Wagon 1/32 Academy F-16CJ Shaw 1/48 Revell F-15E SJ 1/48 Revell F-15E LN 1/48 Hasegawa F-16A IDF 1/72 Italeri B-52H 1/72 Realspace Titan II ICBM (Does it count/just started it??) probably it for 2009?
