  1. Looks like one has been located, just half way across my state! Thanks everyone
  2. I used my Tamiya ones on my F-16 and that is the only modern Tamiya 1/48 kit (that would have AMRAAMS). I do have a stash of Tamiya vipers but not ready to snip one off at this time. One option is to get three Hasegawa ones or aftermarket missiles that match. Good luck, I am sure one will turn up
  3. Making a Tuskegee Airman tribute display for local air & space museum. I have the AMT F/L but is the short version. I will probably be fine but would prefer the long version.
  4. Does it have to be Tamiya? I think I have other brands in the spares box
  5. I have a 32 scale resin pod but I have to dig it up and see which one it is. If it that one, I will give it to you Please remind me if you do not hear back
  6. This sprue has the gun pods and leading edge covers for the Q version tryingvto contact Hasegawa but request not going through thanks
  7. Looking for the correct hull color? Using 36307 and it looks a little too brownish. I am working on the USS Tulsa LCS 16.
  8. I have the Draw Decal markings for4 Stewart (Single gray scheme) that I will pass on
  9. I need the Oman BAE Hawk decal portion in 1/48 scale. It does not need to be Model Alliance but I do not know anyone that makes markings for a BAE hawk of Oman Air force.
  10. My commander flies for Omni and he is trying to get a paint sample from them but they said the fuselage color is "Silver Mica". My issue is in 1/144 scale, any metallic flakes would be way out of scale. I am looking at different silvers but looking at photos, getting a right color seems difficult. At times it looks pearl white, other angles silver........I have orderered Xtracolor from Hannants or Roll models, will look into that. Will do the Voodoo gray on the wings. Thanks!
  11. I am trying to nail the colors on an Omni Air 767 and I am having issues with a few of the colors. I think I have the Ruby Mica color, or something close. One is the Silver Mica on the fuselage, trying to get a good match without the metallic? Next is the wing, that does not have Coroguard. Any idea of what colors to use on the wing (top & bottom)?
  12. I messed up the "500" on the RH nose and the LH intake warning triangle. Anyone not using these markings, I am sure any decal/kit mfg in 72 sale will work. Thanks!
  13. Lost the display stand, someone have a spare or one that would work?
  14. Have you looked at the seat belts? The kit PE do not match any reference photos that I could find
  15. Hopefully any day now. I sent the review in Sunday night. As for the caravan decals, a must!
  16. Winder if they did a 3D scan while the blade tie downs were still attached.....then again you would not stress the blades that much!
  17. Just finished a build review for IPMS USA on this subject. I am not an expert on this subject but it is a nice looking kit but I am not sure where or why Tumpeter did some of the stuff they did....I wish I had the time to do the corrections that BK-117 did, very impressive! Rotor droop too excessive Mod so rotor can rotate, kit had very shallow guide, poor design
  18. I am working on a review for IPMS and I am looking at the rotor head on the 35 scale HH-65C kit. It does not appear that it can be made where it will rotate. Barely into the build but curious if you noticed that yet? Also looking for some better engine/transmission ad rotor mast photos.

  19. I will be building a 72 scale PBY for a Pearl Harbor survivor and he was pat of VP-14. I know Superscale make a set but I am not sure what time frame those are for. Does anyone know of a set of decals for this time frame? I believe the tail had red & white stripes.
  20. One more paint note, the cockpit is all black (FS37038) and there is a thicker brace that attaches the WSO hand hold. That brace holds a device for the JMHCS, real one about 3" diameter by 5" long. The rest of the cockpit from a modelers perspective is the same. There are also some missile threat sensors around the aircraft, a cheek pod between pilot & WSO as well as a different pylon between tail planes and engines. I assume Korea has the same upgrades. http://www.aviationnews.eu/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/F-15SA-12-1002.jpg
  21. Actually, it is the auto pilot.....
  22. Tugging at my heartstrings on that awesome build! Now if I can get the updated decals made (waiting on a decal MFG to do them, have some photos) then you will have to do a second one. The changes are not much but the color markings are a thing of the past(except a few)and the tail number is raised up off the tail base. Great work!
