  1. I am just gonna scratch build the hinges and glue them shut Just finished gunners seats, not too happy but they will do
  2. My condolences to you and your family! I am so sorry for your loss
  3. Thanx for kind words, guys! Rod, The B pillars are from Fireball model works but unfortunately they are discontinued
  4. A little update today...
  5. LOve HUeys, especially the UH-1H's, D's! Can't wait
  6. Thanx, guys! A little more progress...
  7. I have a set of Cobra Company armored seats but since C C closed its doors I am gonna save them . I scratchbuilt the armored seats using the C C ones for reference.
  8. First, I had to remove the "cyst" from the bottom and will cover the opening with styrene later on. I opted to cut off the jump doors since on a few VNAF hueys, they were removed ( in the photos that I saw}
  9. My build is a 1/32 Revell UH-1D Huey with a minimal mod and a few extra bobs. This bird will be a VNAF medevac when finished
  10. Here are a couple VNAF Huey gunship pix for you
  11. Thumbs up! A beautiful VNAF A-37B, but FYI VNAF birds didn't have refueling probe at all
  12. Unbelievable, I also thought it's a real thing!
  13. Thanx for liking, guys! Jay, Unfortunately, there's no record or source for that. I talked to many ex VNAF F-5 pilots but they have no clue. The reason for that is simple, pilots shared planes within the squadrons. They went on missions, came back and tried to live another day so they didn't really pay attention to the airplanes letter code or serial number, etc.... Some said the above belonged to 542nd FS, some said 522nd... so we may never know the truth, who's wrong and who's right Regards, Fabian
  14. These F-5A's carry late war letter code, squadron unknown. They still keep IIAF desert camo and USAF BMF paint jobs.
