  1. Is the F -15E cleared/wired for AIM-9X opposite the AIM-120? I can’t locate any definitive pics on the www. Thanks! Semper Fi, Masterguns
  2. Go to PM with these comments about what is the wrong & right way to point out this or that while hijacking (same goes for me) the OPs thread. Check the pride & ego at the hatch. I (and mostly others) want to see progress of the OP's work & not bickering about "why shouldn't I or someone be able to post my this or that?" If folks don't know something about the subject at hand then they can usually find it on the "Interwebs." I'm not the mod nor "that guy," but for the love of Chesty Puller, let the man post his progress. Not berating those involved & dishing out disrepect. Just blunt constructive critism. Let keep to the pragmatics & skip the superflous. If my comment is against the rules or not in good taste, then mods please remove & send me a warning. OP, great build & keep us posted, please. I'm done with my hijack, too. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  3. Photobucket pics show up blurred for non paying subscribers, so they're not practicle to post. Most of us dropped Photobucket when they decided to start charging several hundrend bucks to use their service, & if so, they blur out the pics for us poor folks. If that's even the issue you're referring to. If not, disregard. I didn't read beyong this page, so I apologize if in error. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  4. Thank you for that intel, Mstor. Those jet cockpit parts look really nice. I still have some old Waldron & Reheat instruments I could potentially use as they are sitting idle collecting dust. I'll use the Eduard 49225 color set for the MFDs & other bits since they're all sized for the kit. I have the old Black Box from the defunct Meteor Prod that will fit the Eduard set or perhaps incorporate the Eduard PE with the Aires set. I'll make that UFC with one of the old sets mentioned. However, In all honesty I'll prolly still buy that Airscale fret you linked anyway. Thanks again for your help. Much 'preciated. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  5. Ahhh, I’m tracking now. Thanks for the update. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  6. I will most likely be building a Lakenheath bird from a 2018 Middle Eastern deployment depicted on the 2019 Caracal F-15E sheet. Last night I ordered Metallic Details LAU128/ADU552 resin launch rail sets & that was the latest available aftermarket I could after searching the www for a couple of hours. They just state for the F-15. Intakes will have FOD covers. I need to find some Steel Beach tail stiffeners but they are OOS at Sprue Bros. I’ll hit eBay for that. But did the E even get the stiffeners? For the MFDs, do you know if the Eduard set 49225 will cover the new mods? That’s all I can think to ask as of this writing. Thank you! Semper Fi, Masterguns
  7. I have several of the 1/48 Revell/Monogram/Promodeler F-15E Strike Eagles purchased in the early 2000's. Other than the bottom front swept back antenna. GPS dome & shimmy dampner, are there any other obvious external mods that someone could pick up on? Any significant changes in the cockpit? Thanks. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  8. As the title states. WTB either of these sets. I purchase using PayPal USD as I am located with the USA. Thank you! Semper Fi, Masterguns

    GBU-49?

    Thank you!

    GBU-49?

    Howdy, gents Other than the F-35, are Hornets & Harrier II modded/capable of using the newish GBU-49? I haven’t built an F-35 kit yet, but I just couldn’t help buying the outstanding 1/48 Eduard Brassin set. But, I have Hornets & Harriers to build & I would like to include the GBU-49 in one or two of the kits (Hasegawa) if it’s an accurate store. As always, thank you! Semper Fi, Masterguns
  11. Howdy. I have Wolfpack’s WP48041 set of the subject matter. The ATFLIR has its own specific mounting adapter. I have not seen any other AM for this pod or conversion set in 1/48 to fit a legacy Hornet.This FLIR is used on the E & F & the USMC A & C Hornet carrier squadrons on the port sparrow station necessitating the lack of fuel tank on the port wing. Land based USMC Hornets use the LITENING Pod on the center line station for the most part. My question is has anyone of you converted this WP pod on a USMC Hornet model that is in carrier markings actively depicting a carrier deployment post 2003 era? I know they carry them, but I can’t find a pic on the web that shows a good angle that would allow me to fiddle with the fit. The AN/ASQ-28 is replacing all other targeting pods for USN Hornets & Super Hornets FYI. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! Semper Fi, Masterguns

  13. X number might be preserved at museums or what have you, but the question is are they currently in flyable or can they be restored into flyable condition. My dad (Marine Corps [naval] Aviator)told me this jet responded very poorly when throttle was applied-therefore it was not suitable for carrier ops. A very unique egress method, as well. No ejection seats & you had to slide down a “chute” on the bottom of the aircraft between the engines. Not exactly ideal in a dire emergency where time was of the essence. If that was the case you’re dead.
  14. Thank you, Ben, Incaroad & Tailspin for the intel. That’s the proper, concise & pragmatic replies I was looking for. I wasn’t aware of Jun’s schematics. Thanks, again gents! Have an awesome week! Semper Fi, Masterguns
