  1. Yes, the era of The Final Countdown
  2. of course, they were first designed for Tamiya 1/48 kit
  3. Hi Regarding US Navy aircrews, I had a gap for the périod mid 70s to early 80s. So we made a F-14 aircrew of the first years, with helmet and oxygen mask that was in use before "top-gun 1", so before 1981. However, as I do not have a F-14 available, i installed them in an Intruder in 1/32 scale : Cheers Norbert
  4. depends on scale, but you will find them here : https://reedoak.com/#!/Modern-USA/c/13281246 Then clic on the US Navy image
  5. Hello ! We made a second version of the same USAF F-16 pilot we previously showed, but looking port side, downwards : Cheers Norbert
  6. Hi Here is an american F-16 pilot equiped with a HGU-55 helmet and the former MBU-12 mask, so a bit old style, and wearing only the seat harness and the G-suit : 80s - 2000s era, or later depending to the countries, squadrons and pilots. These gears were commonly used by several countries in the world. The type of pilot I could see in the "good old days" (was not always good, but I spend some good time on airfields...) cheers+ Norbert
  7. Hi Further to the F-4 aircrew for the 1969-late 70s era, Reedoak provides now versions with visor up, and with or without boom mic, in 1/32 and 1/48 scale Cheers Norbert
  8. in 1/32 scale, we made a version with the additional helmet boom mic, on the existing pose we scaled down the F-4J RIO made for Tamiya F-4J in 1/32 to 1/48 scale : Cheers Norbert
  9. Hi, Reedoak has now a 1/32 US Navy phantom II F-4J crew, for the era from 1969 to the end of the 70s. They are equipped with APH-6A helmets and MS22001 mask, with butterfly bayonets, one of the possibilities of that time. Here in the Tamiya kit : We made also a 1/48 version, but for the F-4B, that finaly has different hand and arms position despite trying to keep the same pose: Cheers Norbert
  10. https://store7093396.ecwid.com/#!/products-additions-july-august-2023/c/152420138 or www.reedoak.com
  11. Hi, it's not what we usualy make and it was at the origin just for one person, but we finaly redraw it completely to bring it closer to the 1962 original drawing : Here with 1/32 scale figures, the smaller one is in 1/48 size. However, with such figures, it's difficult to speak from scales : cheers Norbert
  12. We had the opportunity to scan a helmet for the Delta Apache, so we modified our apache crew for a version with the older helmet (still in use): Cheers Norbert
  13. Reedoak is bringing out a set of 2 US army helicopter pilot survival vests, hanging. They can hang inside or outside Blackhawks, Latokas, Kiowas, Apaches, Chinooks, Cayuses... These vests re also used by USAF blackhawk crews And are shown here on side of a blackhawk : Chers Norbert
  14. 1/48 version in Hasegawa seats... Cheers Norbert
  15. Hello ! Reedoak has now a AH-64E pilot a gunner team, with pilot hands on sticks and gunner hands on the TADS display. Both visors are down with the IHADSS sight in front of the right eyes : I wish to all a nice day Norbert
  16. Hello ! So, we made the last helmet found on AH-64E, equiped with a mount for the IHADSS sight system, and another for the night vision goggles. We made it with detailled interior, without the sight system as it is stored appart inside the right pannel at both seats. helmet is usualy laying on the seat, or hanging inside, from what I could find. Cheers Norbert
  17. and as I have also the later (and todays) tie-down tensionner, I must say the todays system with chain is much better and probably also much safer
  18. The picture (from internet) is not very good but you see here : the rod attach to the plane. Inside the device is a cable that is attached the other side to a hook (the rod in S) that that is fixed on the deck. there is no chain
  19. Finger crossed, they were on a CH-53 too... the gunship looks to have a long body, a bit strange for a B. Waiting for more officials pictures
  20. Yes, was looking at a vintage picture yesterday and was thinking I should find a fatigue cap...
  21. Something a bit special this time : US Navy carrier aircraft tie-down, 50s - early 60s, based on the original as we usualy do. So for a Demon, Panther, Skyray, Phantom (the first one) etc...on a wooden deck. We may have a chance, some says KH has a second life... cheers Norbert
  22. Hi, We did a US hard shell computer that we will use on future projects, but can be provided separately : Cheers Norbert
