  1. Those are beauts Craig. I can see some of the changes you had to do on the F-15 like the wing tips. Is there a list somewhere that kinda lays out what is involved?
  2. Nice synopsis Norm. Will have to keep this list if I ever get a hankering to build that version
  3. Wow that's a nice looking model Paul. Even got the refuelling door open, cool.
  4. This is a great idea Kursad. I recently checked the boxing for the Tamiya A-10 with the Euro 1 scheme on the box. Looks like Tamiya has updated the moulds slightly. I built the Tamiya kit many years ago and I had to add the nose ECM bumps which was not on the fuselage halves. My boxing was the grey scheme on the box artwok. Not sure what else that added.
  5. I would bet it would look similar to our current CF-18 scheme. It is already low viz and all the other nations using it seem to be going that route. No camo on these aircraft. I am doing a camo one though as greys are boring.
  6. i have that Cat4 set in my ebay cart but did not know if I should order considering the situation. That set corrects the most glaring issue with the HB kit. The canopy and windshield is still wonky but at least it is a bit better now.
  7. I applaud the effort to create these schemes to commemorate anniversaries but like others not a fan. So far the best in my mind is the MIA SEA scheme. My comment from the peanut gallery.
  8. Cool thanks for the link. Looks like a smaller brother to the ones we used for electrical work to cut huge cables. Those cut clean across. As for the pins I would think you would have to try it to see the results.
  9. Not sure about the F-16 but Speed Hunter Graphics is releasing an A-10 sheet with that SEA scheme on it. The decals are at the printers so not in stock as yet.
  10. Oh forgot all about this. Yup all done and ready to get dirty. Let me figure out how to post pics.
  11. Thanks for the insight John. Your comments maker so much sense. However I do think KH had a market especially for their large scale H-60 series since no one else did that (Academy notwithstanding). I only have a few of the kits and I am happy with them (not built) as the subject interested me. Time will tell I would say.
  12. I read on FB I think that they have a year of stock to get rid of and they will be doing that.
  13. As others have said it is sad news no matter which way you look at it. To lose a model company is not a good thing. I don't have any of their H-60 series but from what i have read and seen they do look good. I am a 1/48th chopper guy so was hoping for a scale down in the near future. I only have 4 of their kits and was hoping for good things for their Voodoo but did not get it in the end due to some issues that bugged me on them. The KH moulds are still valuable so who knows where they will end up.
  14. Nice work there. I just got another Revell kit. I think they are great.
  15. Thanks Ray, we will see how it goes. Looking forward to at least trying it and actually make something that is useful in my hobby. I will take some pictures as I go along and see if I can write an article on how I did it. Oh and maybe I should keep my Italeri C-130 kits. Bird in hand and all that.
