  1. I should have known that was the holdback, similar to our CF-18s. I knew the Super Hornet had a second arm switch to the right of the gun arm. WhenI replied I actually stated what I read on another site and trusted it despite my instincts telling me it was wrong. I couldn’t see the chaff arm because his hand was in the way. Thank Yari, you were the armorer not me.
  2. Chaff/flare arm is the forward button, the smaller one on the gun access door. Both are circled and a line is drawn between the two. It’s a reminder to arm the chaff, follow the line to the gun to arm in that order. The H next to the gun arm switch indicates the gun is Hot (rounds are run up the drum to the gun). It is essentially a reminder to complete those two tasks just before take-off. As well as a reminder that this jet left hot.
  3. Gun switch, we called it the pop can. This one has gun info on it, HEI is high explosive incendiary.
  4. I have sprayed all three, all are fantastic. I don’t notice a difference between Tamiya and Mr Color is viscosity and use. They handle the same.
  5. The writing on the gun access door is the chaff/flare load and the date it was certified/loaded. The G is the the initial for the armament specialist that loaded it. This saves the aircrew from crawling under the jet on their pre-flight to confirm the load. It isn't the catapult info.
  6. I’d say it was the polishing that created the layer that lifted.
  7. Are you painting it in a factious scheme? You only want to feature and bring attention to the weapon loads? I’d paint it in a gray primer then.
  8. You should see the pictures we have of the 410 Cougar when we kidnapped it.
  9. Dave was one of the reasons this hobby peaked years ago, his product was second to none. I worked on a few products with him, I miss his passion for this industry.
  10. I’ll go one further, it’s a dumb idea.
  11. Yes, I will change up the codes. If I can get pictures of any crew names I will add them to one of the name bars.
  12. Sadly most resin makers ignore Kitty Hawk cockpits, probably because they have no basis to start with. The type of cockpit they put in this kit is garbage. Like you say, at least Eduard has three dimensional layers. A decal on a flat piece of material is junk. The rest of the kit looks great.
  13. Yes, a classic shop and a must stop whenever I am in Victoria.
  14. Thanks, I was able to find two of those, not the first F-15D.
  15. Are trh cockpit and side consoles raised details? The first Voodoo was criticized for being flat pieces with no detail. Can you post images of the sprues?
  16. I kidnapped a Phantom seat once, we were flying against St Louis F-15s and acquired some of their “stuff” from the officers mess. We took their mascot back to Canada too. It was interesting when our truck went through customs. We told them we stole all the items. They had to pay us a visit in Cold Lake to repatriate their items.
  17. Hi, I'm looking for online information or books that have good information on Hawaii ANG F-15s. In particular I am looking for a walkaround of an F-15B or F-15D flown by the Hawaii Guard. I can find a few images of Hawaii F-15Bs. I’m not even certain the 99th flew D’s. Information seems very limited. I’m going to build a dual seater F-15 and want it to be a Hawaii ANG airframe.
  18. Yup, mine shows confirmed and ready to ship.
  19. Gear doors are easier for us to clean and also are re-painted easier.
  20. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Kitty-Hawk-KH80114-1-48-F-101B-Voodoo/263732373263?hash=item3d67aca70f:g:ZokAAOSwCHBbEtYl
  21. Did you get a shipping notice from Hobbyeasy? I don’t think they have had stock yet. I ordered from them too. i almost cancelled my order to order from Lucky Models, they have a 20% off coupon at the moment, I wish I did as they had 10 kits in stock.
  22. The auction says the seller is away until June 16.
