    ...BELGIUM AIR FORCE F-16 Destroyed..

    There are definite ways to bypass the switches, especially if the jet was being worked on. I was only permitted to work on armed jets during one specific operation. I didn’t like it. It wasn’t wartime ops, it was G-8 protection, to keep jets over the summit 24-7. Hopefully the WOW override box wasn’t connected. Although there are pin shorts that could fire a weapon system without an override of the WOW. It takes a lot of effort to accomplish this though.

    F-14A Tomcat

    Beautiful everything! Two weeks? That would take me two years.
  7. Every time I see Alf I think of Dan. 🙂
  8. Wow Chuck, jaw dropping. I haven't seen your recent works in person. I hope to get to see this and the F-15 next year in Calgary!

    F-35 news roundup

    Airforce does too, I was in a Tactical Helicopter Squadron for part of my career. We even had satellite TV, and we purchased a shower trailer.

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    Exactly, I’ve read a lot of people say they look the same. They don’t at all, AMKs is two piece.

    F-35 news roundup

    Royal Canadian Navy is the same, they have drinking messes on the ships. I hear a lot of US sailors love serving on a Canadian ship.

    Exactly, McDonald’s isn’t the only fast food business that sells burgers.

    Aftermarket in Canada

    Alberta. I bought the ZM Phantom six months ago. And that and one other ZM Phantom were probably the only kits I purchased from a US seller in 4-5 years. I price checked the Phantoms with offers from Japan, Sprue Brothers was actually cheaper. I think ZM in Japan was jacking their shipping so as to not to compete with ZM USA. I just looked at my invoice, they were $75 US shipped. My go to locations are Lucky, Hannants, and Ultracast. For decals it is eBay seller rebelalpha.

    Aftermarket in Canada

    I’m very selective what I buy from them now, they do have economy shipping now. You need to select it from a pull down though. I can ship a kit for $20, aftermarket for less. I shipped a ZM Phantom on a sale for $85 US total.

    Aftermarket in Canada

    Nothing really left in Canada that I know of, I usually order from Europe/Asia or through eBay, depending on shipping. The only US seller with reasonable shipping is Spruebrothers

    Pappy Boyington Corsair

    It was the aircraft that was in his log book the most on his second tour. He took whatever was ready. All records from the Blacksheeps first tour were lost.

    How would you rate the 1/48 scale Phantom kits

    Yes, this was mentioned 8 posts up.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    He actually said they were outside in a shipping container. So they could be close.

    Kinetic RCAF 20 years CF-18 up for pre-order

    I’m friends with the graphic artist that designed the schemes on the actual jets. He is supposed to be retired now but he continues to design. He was a civilian graphic artist employed in one of our Hornet Squadrons. I ran into him this summer and he said he is up to 55 paint jobs now. He even designed the jet I initiated the suggestion for in my squadron. The decals for the Canada 150 (150th anniversary of our nation) jet that you have was his design from last year. He was very proud of that one as the scheme was also put on Canada’s bobsleds in the Winter Olympics. Billions of eyes got to see his design in the Olympics. The unveiling of the bobsleds was in a hangar with the 150 jet. I also know the decal designer, he does great work. He owns Leading Edge Models. Nice to see his work being printed by Cartograf now. I don’t think you offended any of us, you had a valid question. The Kinetic Hornet was the brainchild of a good friend of mine who passed away recently from cancer. I wish he would have been alive to see the kit released. Raymond deserves thanks too, he was also good friends with Rick.
