    F-16 CFT

    I just tried the CFT's in the Kinetic F-16I Sufa boxing and they certainly seem to fit the Tamiya quite nicely. Having said that I did not pay attention to any issues regarding dimensions (if they sat on the kit exactly in the right spot). I can't compare them to my Attack Squadron sets as they are buried somewhere.
  2. Hi Aerofan,

     

            I'm scanning these pages for you as I type this. If you want to contact me directly at tcalbury@telus.net I will send them to you.

     

    Cheers

      Tom,

       

      Thank you for scanning those pages. I was able to print out the missing pages & insert them into the two Canadian Profile Library books so others can enjoy a full copy of the books.

       

      Cheers,

      Nick

  3. VF-111 F-8D's showing location of tail code and modex when they used NH. Location did vary.
  4. A CAG bird typically had Modex "00" on the nose. VF-111 did carry the squadron letters and modex on the right wing of their F-8D's, but not sure about the other models they flew. Of note, which I forgot to mention in my post above, is that the right hand wing of 147925 appears to have been touched up in the area where the letters and numbers could have appeared. Or am I just seeing things? Both of the aircraft in my post are F-8H's (remanufactured D's) as they have the Bullpup avionics hump. So, did the markings on the upper right wing get painted over during upgrade or some other time? Pure speculation on my behalf.
  5. Scott, I have 2 or 3 pictures of 148684, but they are all from the side and, therefore, of no help. In cases like this where you can't come up with the definitive photo, what you are ultimately left with is finding pictures of its squadron contemporaries during the same time-frame and having the same markings-"AJ" being the 5th and final tail markings for VF-111.
  6. Got my sets yesterday and they are gorgeous.
  7. The Snowbirds apparently fly their CT-114's trimmed nose down during display's.
  8. Moving and getting rid of some stuff that will never be built. I have a 1987 Monogram Young Astronauts Mercury Capsule and Atlas Booster for sale. The box is open and has wear. Both bags of parts are sealed (no punctures) with some loose parts floating around. It does have the poster with some wear on the folded edges. Decals look to be in great shape and are in a zip-lock bag. $10 Cdn for the kit plus postage from Calgary. Pictures if you require them. Tom
  9. Going through model stuff now that I've sold my house and will be moving into something smaller. I have a 1/72 Hasegawa F/A-18A still in sealed bag plus several sprues of parts for same including fuel tanks, a set of wings, yada, yada, yada. All free but you pay the postage from Calgary. Canada only please due to Canada Post rates. I believe the base package rate in Canada is around $15. Will take Paypal. UPDATE. Kit and parts sprues are spoken for. Cheers, Tom
  10. The 2 F-101B cockpits are sold. The remaining four are still available for $33 Cdn plus postage from Calgary, Canada. 2 of 48101 F-101B - Sale agreed. 2 of 48069 F-106A 1 48007 F-102A 1 of 48008 F-100D Thanks, Tom

    Good catch! I missed that. Part of the modernization/upgrade program to bring the Daggers up to Kfir C2 standards given that they couldn't buy them outright. I don't know which Finger upgrade level this would have been part of.

    Yes, an earlier photo. Full national markings were on the jets for a few years after the conflict so how much earlier is unknown. Jets could be found in flight lines with full markings amidst those with reduced. I don't know when the reduction in national markings was implemented. C-429 has a Nesher nose in both photos - they were in fact ex-IAF Neshers. Look below the small strake on the forward nose and you can see the metal pitot sticking out against the grass in the background. C-429 was apparently upgraded to Finger IIIA between April 2, 1985 and Dec 8, 1985 and then to Finger IIIB between Feb 17, 1988 and April 20, 1989. You might be correct that the reduced national markings was implemented with upgrades as opposed to being done just all on its own.

    What you are looking at is post Falklands war markings. All national markings were gone with the exception of the national flag on the vertical fin. This photo is apparently C-429 at Tandil in Dec 1989. And below, C-429 date unknown.
