  1. It’s always tricky, I implemented new NVGs on several aircraft types, often it was the new panels that were faulty manufacture, with light leakage.
  2. I was going to say much the same, NVG mods have more to do with the interior lighting and control panel lights then the color of the cockpit.
  3. Z got back in, after being out for 6 years. He’s in town as his father had heart surgery. His dad is recovering well. Z is in 442. Stay strong my friend.
  4. Take care Carmen. I'm seeing an ex-416er today, Club Z has been in town. He passes on his condolences.
  5. I doubt the B-52 guns are loaded. Cool observation though.
  6. Perhaps a typo in the instructions, poor editing from the previous instructions?
  7. Very nice! Awesome video! Incredible build!
  8. You can build 902 from the Kinetic kit.
  9. I received my decals today, great product. All is good.
  10. So sorry to hear Carmen, thoughts and prayers for you and your family. I tried to send you a private message, stay strong my friend. Gary
  11. My mistake, I had always thought the Vintage Wings Sabre was the Airspray Sabre. I just read the history. The pilot of the Airspray Sabre definitely told me the fuselage was a Mk 5 and the wing was from a Mk 6. He also said he had all the logs from when the airframe was with the RCAF and he stated it flew with both 441 and 416. He also stated they painted the checkers on the tail to honour its time with 441. I trusted this info.
  12. He posted an update on his Facebook page April 12th with that and more information. Since then he hasn't posted anything. I asked him a few questions via email and he hasn't replied. I also placed an order two weeks ago and haven't received the decals yet. He is still going to produce, just more carefully. He took a hit on his BoB kit release. I was hoping someone would respond saying they placed an order recently and received it.
  13. Yes, it is a combination of a Mk 5 and Mk 6. We used to have this jet in Cold Lake when it towed gunnery targets for us. It has a wing off a Mk 6 and fuselage from a Mk 5.
  14. Correct, how did that slip my mind.
  15. Has anyone heard from Dave recently or ordered decals from his site? Thanks
  16. Super Hornet is cancelled, our PM is likely shopping for a European product now, especially considering Canada/US relations are broken at the moment.
  17. That kit you have was released by Dan Dempsey's brother Rick, who owns a company called Specialty Jets Unlimited. It is a Revell boxing of the Hasegawa kit. I should know who produced the decals for Specialty Jets, I don’t think it was Leading Edge. Edit - you very likely bought it at the Alberta Aviation Museum in Edmonton, they had a lot of them in stock. I think they still have stock. Rick supplied them with stock.
  18. There was very good footage and details in the FAA film they had which they designed the decals from.
  19. We referred to them as both, the wing fold cans were likely referred to as Coke Cans more often.
  20. Fundekals did on their WWII FAA Corsair sheets, guns loaded in chalk decals are included. But you are likely talking modern day.
  21. When the cans are out the outside is red, which is what we called them coke cans.
  22. Yari corrected me, which I should have known.
