  1. Neu hit the nail on the head. Especially about letting the subject matter experts make the decision. I served under Hawn, and I am still in touch with many people I served with in the Hornet world, the F-35 is the aircraft of choice in the military community. It is the best airframe to allow our aircrews to survive to fight another day.It also the best decision for our aviation industry, we share in the production, research and development. The Gripen is junk. And he is 100% correct about the Canadian public, they allow these type of fiascos to go on. We should have more concern for our military than we show. You don’t procure military equipment to fight today’s wars, you purchase it to fight tomorrow’s wars against the strongest adversary. The rest of the world isn’t wrong about the F-35, but Trudeau certainly is.
  2. Position lights. Block 60 F-16s do have them now.
  3. Those are Cold War era nuclear weapons. In Canada, CF-104s we’re capable of carrying the B43. I have one on one of my Starfighter builds. One way missions in those days, my flight instructor (Private Pilot’s License) was a CF-104 pilot in Europe during the Cold War era. He told me the scenario was to bomb your target, turn away from the blast and fly as far as your fuel would take you, then eject and find your way back to whatever home would be.
  4. My rule that I set this year is before I buy a new one I have to sell 10 kits.

  6. My apologies for not explaining my original post better. The Brits apparently only painted the stripes on one side during Tiger meet, last night was the first time I was aware of that. Clearly the stripes were painted later. It makes me wonder if they were added later on both sides.
  7. I'm only going with a discussion from Britmodeler, they posted this picture taken during the Tiger Meet.
  8. I’m bumping an old thread in regards to the Tiger decals, the Tiger stripes were not on the starboard side of the option with the nose art Tiger.
  9. There was a set like that by Red Gecko Decals (Lonestar Models). It sold out fast, I actually got the last set. Very popular subject.
  10. Kitty Hawk's helicopters are well done.
  11. I put in a full day of building for this group build, I’ll post pictures tomorrow of what I have built on my Eduard Spitfire.
  12. Eduard kit, Barracuda and Brassin resin and Eduard etch parts. I am heading downstairs now to my hobby room to start, I hope to post images soon.
  13. 1/48 Eduard Spitfire, 416 RCAF markings, Eduard, Barracuda and Brassin add-ons.
  14. Nice work as per your norm, looking forward to building the RCAF versions.
  15. Those are not lights Chris, they are forward quad receivers for detecting threats (EW gear). Most aircraft in RCAF inventory have some form of quad receivers installed, the Buff and Twin Otters are two that don’t. All combat aircraft do.
  16. Who is Shawn? Hasn’t his name been changed officially to Phantom? 😉
  17. I thought the newer Tamiya Zero that you say you have has both clipped and rounded wing-tips. So you should be good with what you have. Edit : Just reviewed my kits, I see it doesn’t, the earlier release does as does a Hasegawa kit (all of this information was previously posted in this thread).
  18. I’m actually going to follow the same thought pattern as your blog, except I am going to finish my shelf queens (only four or five) and not accumulate any additional queens. I’ll also thin the herd, I’d like to get down to less than 50 kits. I had 300, I thinned it in the last year to about 150. I’m currently working on two kits, one a 1/48 Eduard Spit Mk IX I just started, and the second a 1/48 Hasegawa Hornet I started in 1999 (yes 1999) . Both will be finished in 416 CAF/RCAF markings. I served in 416 (1999-2007). The Hornet will be painted in the color scheme I had designed and approved for my Squadron’s 60th anniversary (2001).
  19. Look’s great, Kitty Hawk lots are often neglected by aftermarket sets, especially the resin makers.
  20. The F-22 wasn’t exported because the sensitive software within the aircraft is easily deciphered. It is the aircrafts biggest weakness.
  21. There you go, first one built for the group build!
  22. 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.
