  1. Tomcat Squadrons

    Sounds like fun! Here's a few ideas: VF-142 Ghostriders - Riders on the Storm - Doors VF-201 Hunters - Die Hard the Hunter - Def Leppard VF-213 Black Lions - Back in Black - AC/DC
  2. RIP Mr. R.A. "Bob" Hoover

    There is a really good documentary out there on Mr. Hoover. I picked up a copy when it came out a couple years ago. The website is here. -Dave
  3. In case anyone else is looking for Fujimi 1/72 F-14's, you can get the KA Models kit, which is Fujimi plastic with canopy masks, PE, and turned pitot tube for $25 brand new. -Dave
  4. 1/35 MBT T-72

    I see Trumpeter and Zvezda have kits too. Don't know anything about them though.
  5. 1/35 MBT T-72

    Looks like Scalehobbyist has the Meng kit in stock for $66 and the Tamiya kit for $34. -Dave
  6. Must have Aircraft Model Kits

    The MiG-29 and F/A-18 from Tamiya are actually reboxes of Italeri kits which aren't that great. The Revell F-14 is an ok option but there are better ones out there. For a MiG-29, check out the new kits from Zvezda and Trumpeter. For an F/A-18 the Academy kit is really good. For the F-14, I would really recommend one of the Fujimi kits for an "A" model. KA Models is also reboxing the Fujimi F-14A plastic with some really nice decals as well as photo etch and canopy masks. I recently picked up a couple of the KA Models F-14's from Free Time Hobbies for a really good price. Pretty much any 1/48 Tamiya WWII kit is going to be a fantastic build for you. I would also direct you to check out the build forums on here as well as the Modeling Madness website for kit reviews. Hope this helps and welcome to the forums! -Dave
  7. Star Trek GB??

    That would be correct. All in good fun though. -Dave
  8. Star Trek GB??

    Like "What if" Star Trek didn't suck??
  9. FCM does a beautiful 1/144 sheet with these markings on it. I don't think they ever did that particular scheme in 72nd or 48th though, even though they do have -114 sheets in those scales. -Dave
  10. My latest large scale build...

    Nooooice!!
  11. One Day Build

    My best effort was a one weekend build of the STP Indy Turbine car. The key to that was simple kit, few colors, and paint everything you can first so the paint can dry.
  12. Stardestroyer

    Nice! I threw some paint on mine this weekend, so it only needs a little weathering and it will be done too. -Dave
  13. RF-8A vs RF-8G photo Saders?

    Early RF-8A's didn't have the ventral fins.
  14. Louvers (little ones)

    Most of the ones that I see on hot rod builds are either cut from a body panel from another kit, or they are formed in a piece of sheet metal or foil. -Dave
  15. Trio of Tamiya MotoGP bikes

    Very nice! I love the Tamiya bike kits. I've finished the Kawasaki and Honda Pons NSR500 myself. It looks like you did a really nice job on the wheel stripes too. Those can be a real bear. -Dave
