  1. Never heard of these so now I have to go check them out. I guess I can google the name and find them.
  2. Wow you the man Dutch. I had the Revell kit, I think it was in the JAWS scheme on the box. Never did finish it. Something about it bugged me. Maybe it was the plastic?
  3. I knew there was a reason I was looking at getting more Tamiya Skyraiders.
  4. I am pretty sure the Tamiya one is more prototype than production as you listed. Isn't the Monogram a production model? Okay maybe still early as it does not have the lumps and bumps of the current version I believe. I built the first release of the Tamiya kit and had to add some bump on the nose. I liked the kit. Also I think most of the marking will fit any of these except maybe the sharkmouth of 23 TFW or the Warthog.
  5. Thanks for the links. I actually have to go get some of his decals. Currently I have 3 of the Revell kits and for sure one will be RCAF and the other will be Quatar. The other one I am thinking of doing as PanAm cargo in that wonderful billboard scheme. Will see if I can cobble something together from Draw Decal.
  6. Thanks for the info. Did not know that. I see there is now another kit of the Bloodhound but it is a big one with an associated big price.
  7. Ugh I had the Airfix kit and as it was the only one at the time I started it. It was sitting on my SOD until the Italeri kit came out. Then it went bye bye. I do recall trying to correct the panel lines on the Airfix kit as they appeared to be incorrect. Still have a couple of the Italeri kits but now with the Zvezda kit coming I may ditch them or keep them as decal mules. However I did like the Bloodhound missile in the Airfix kit and wished I had kept that.
  8. Wow late to the party here. Just saw this. Great stuff Kursad. I actually was at Syracuse ANG base when the A-10s were there. Got to touch these A-10s and it was great. Got a lot of slides but you probably have all you need. Those ANG pilots were a great bunch of guys too. Always wanted to build this A-10 with these markings so now I can. Built my Tamiya version in 23 TFW scheme so another will be okay.
  9. I guess I am lucky and got my B-29 last year at a show up here in Canada. Paid $50 CDN for it. It was started, sort of. Pieces were cut off the sprue and taped together. The tape did leave residue though so will have to clean that off. No biggie. I know there are several detail sets for it but to tell the truth I think I will just build the darn thing. Maybe engine change? Not sure yet. I think it is impressive enough without all the add ons.
  10. Wow nice. Unless you look closely at the movie I guess you would never see those details with the colours. Got to remember this post when I build mine
  11. On my next Zoom gab fest I will ask Mike Belcher if he has any interest. Those new Caracl decals are really nice.
  12. Can we start with Italeri's D and go from there? I know there is probably a lot of other stuff to do to make an RCAF Chinook.
  13. Interesting. I know I have seen RAAF C-17s with this mod which the RCAF also has and at the time the USAF did not have them installed. I take that back, not all the USAF C-17s had them installed. No matter i am adjusting mine with the mod as it is an easy fix.
  14. Well if it is still on, I probably would not go. I live in Canada and I am not even sure the border will be open for travel by then so it will all be academic.
  15. Thanks Jake, knew it could not be as simple as that.
