  1. The funny thing with the JSF program, I was with McDonnell Douglas at the time, we lost because according to the Pentagon was because it was too "advanced" and too much risk in the development phase. Now look at the penguin (winner) F-35 and all the money racked up try to make that thing work, sheesh!
  2. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/32521/air-force-f-16s-are-getting-pylons-with-built-in-missile-warning-sensors-and-countermeasures When will these be available in resin or other aftermarket multimedia?
  3. I was at the NATS on Wednesday & Thursday (7 & 8 Aug) and stopped by the ZM booth and on display was a 3d printed F-4E with a sign saying it would be available in summer 2020. Sorry I didn't take a picture of it . . .
  4. Saw two penguins (F-35) overfly my house here in Crestview Florida, and happily see regularly F-15's & F-16's from the Eglin test center as well as F-22's that are temporarily flying out of Eglin since the hurricane shattered Tyndal. Sorry you F-35 fans, just don't like the penguin . . . .
  5. Guess I'll be sniffing glue until then . . .
  6. WOW thanks, still hard to believe we're getting a new FJ-2! When is the F-11 Tiger coming?
  7. Has anybody seen/known of this? It's a fuzzy pic because I had to resize it since I couldn't believe:
  8. Glad to hear it worked, cheers.
  9. You're pulling my leg right?!?! I open this link in either internet explorer or firefox browsers and it shows up just fine . . . https://www.ebay.com/sch/buzzintel/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= Try it this way, here is a link to one of the kits, click on link the under the sellers info "see other items" and they should all show up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-48-Eduard-Su-27UB/303225335188?hash=item4699a36d94:g:ld0AAOSwm-BdLJwb
  10. I have an assortment of kits for sale on ebay, thanks for looking. https://www.ebay.com/sch/buzzintel/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
  11. Sorry you're probably right, but the map closely follows what they've produced so far such as the F-4J/S/C/D. Outside of the RF & Brit models, all that's left is the F-4E/F and perhaps a "G"? And to quote from that same link above "It's not over yet! This is a promise for you F-4 fans! The development of 1/48 F-4 E has come to a good point. I think I may let you see a test-shot of the model in the next days so please look forward to it. " So the F-4E is pretty close . . . .
  12. If you go to the middle of the linked webpage below from the ZM website, you'll see their F-4 development roadmap, and the F-4E is clearly there: http://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/sentiment/oyajiblog_099.html Better yet here is the link to that roadmap:
  13. BTW, nice cockpit work there but I hate to be picky but the "tan" rear-instrument covers are actually black from the factory like the rest of that area, but over time and exposure to the sun & elements they would fade. So it depends on how weathered you wish to make your bird, factory fresh it would be black. Just do a google search for F-14a cockpit pics and you'll see a huge variation of fading. Overtime we would replace them, particularly if they start to tear, wouldn't want that sun to bake the wires and instruments. The 14's I worked on in VF213 back from 80-82 were in relatively good shape, still mostly black but starting to fade, and these were 5yr old birds.
  14. Check out the great paint on the tail of this Viper: https://theaviationist.com/2019/04/18/check-out-this-belgian-f-16-with-a-pretty-unusual-special-rusty-tiger-tail/
  15. FYI, just released: https://www.eduard.com/eduard/aim-120a-b-amraam-1-32.html?cur=2
