    CD48148 - 1/48 CH-47 Chinook

    Another vote for Canadian CH-147Ds in Afghanistan. These were ex-US Amy Chinooks. The Nose Art was applied by the US Army, we Candianized the markings. So you could actually do a before (US Army) and after (CAF). I have pictures of them all in theatre, in fact I have an entire CD full of pictures taken by a pilot friend who flew them in my former Squadron.

    Tamiya New Tool 1/48 Spitfire I?

    Eduard will come to the rescue.
  3. Cheaper, they can fly different profiles such as that of a cruise missile. It free’s up front line fighters to conduct their own DACT. I know the pilots in my Hornet squadron didn’t like flying cruise missile profiles, they preferred the more challenging training missions. A high school friend of mine and former squadron mate brought the Hunters to North America. As far as I know, he is no longer involved or part owner of the Hunters. He returned to the Middle East to train pilots there. I didn’t know this pilot, although I know many of the pilots flying Hunters, A-4s,and Alpha jets as adversaries and ECM jets as private contracts now. Hopefully the pilot will be OK, he underwent surgery today. Sounds like he had compression injuries from the ejection.

    Met a WW II Vet today

    Very sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my own mother in March, so I understand the pain. It was nice to learn of him.
  5. I don’t see any delays, not even with the rotating postal strike. I never see anything even go to customs, only straight to my door.

    I doubt it, a lot of us are losing our near vision, we need 1/32.

    Tamiya New Tool 1/48 Spitfire I?

    Why would you say that? Four 1/48 kits in the past few years?
  8. Great work, even if it is squished. It’s only your model photos that show up that way. And sometimes it goes away.

    Thank you for backing up what I already posted. 😊

  12. I had a hand in the 412 conversion. Agree on the sudden silence.
  13. I can’t login, when I reset my password it sends it to another username for a different forum. It also says I have used my maximum number of logins (which is four). I knew my password in the first place.
  14. Any release date set for this? I’m chomping at the bit to build a Canadian Twin Huey that I worked on in the CAF.

    I have some from our fleet’s medical interior, I think we were the prototype for the Aussie interior. I’ll post them if you want. We fly with different medical equipment.

  17. Yeah, I can’t get in, nor can I get in touch with Brett.

    If you ever do the ICE scheme I have plenty of walkarounds including one jet zapped with NHL logos.

    Tamiya New Tool 1/48 Spitfire I?

    Not yet, or I would have snapped it up. Probably not far behind though, they are usually a week or two behind Wings and Wheels.

    The Spitfire kits have hit Canadian retail stores!!!!!!!!!
  21. No problem Bear, good to see you have your heals together for me. 😉
  22. Sadly the author Robert Bracken passed away soon after the books were released and it doesn’t appear there will be a second run. He was much too young when he passed away. I actually bought them both volumes new at Costco.
