  1. And Eduard replies, coming in November . . .

  3. Check my ebay link below, thanks. https://www.ebay.com/sch/buzzintel/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
  4. It's a MK5c with fishtail exhaust pipes from a MK9, never seen that before. Guess no one had noted that, they (Mk5) always had that weird exhaust arrangement of 6 exhaust outlets stuffed in three pipes on each side, and this definitely sets it apart.
  5. Anyone ever see or model one like this:
  6. The links below are from a website in Poland that has these kits on sale: HOBBY 2000 48002 - 1:48 P-40N Warhawk Over CBI & HOBBY 2000 48001 - 1:48 P-40N Warhawk Aces of The 49th Fighter Group. They are the Hasegawa molds reboxed by Hobby 2000. I have no ownership nor interest in the webstore, just want to pass along a good deal. It takes about 2-3 weeks for the kit to arrive, but with this price it's worth the wait!! https://exito.site/en_GB/p/HOBBY-2000-48001-148-P-40N-Warhawk-Aces-of-The-49th-Fighter-Group/57704 https://exito.site/en_GB/p/HOBBY-2000-48002-148-P

  8. Agreed Brad-M, but better than no pic, LOL.

  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. 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 . . .
  14. 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 . . . .
  15. Guess I'll be sniffing glue until then . . .
  16. WOW thanks, still hard to believe we're getting a new FJ-2! When is the F-11 Tiger coming?
  17. Has anybody seen/known of this? It's a fuzzy pic because I had to resize it since I couldn't believe:
  18. 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
  19. 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=
  20. 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 . . . .
  21. 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:
  22. 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
