  1. The Trumpeter Challenger 2 Enhanced Armour kit is also pretty good, it has upgraded parts compared to the original release, including an all new turret moulding and of course has the Bar Armour too.
  2. Likewise it brings back fond memories for me also, the bright orange scheme was one of the options in the Hasegawa kit way back in the 70's it just happened to be the first Hasegawa kit that I bought, I had read lots about them in model magazines but had never come across anywhere that stocked them, then whilst on a family summer holiday I found a model shop that stocked them and this was the box top scheme, it was just too gorgeous to resist, and there started my interest in US Navair subjects. Oh yes I wish that was the case too.
  3. A few more added: Accurate Miniatures 1/48 Double Dauntless SDD-3 / 4 Midway / Operation Torch. Monogram 1/48 A-4E Skyhawk Blue Angels Matchbox 1/72 HP Victor K.2 Hasegawa 1/72 McD-D F-18 Prototype Airfix 1/72 RAF Refuelling Set http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/ant_phillips/m.html?item=182585874574&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 This is probably the last batch of kits for now, but I will be listing a whole bunch of 1/144 airliner decals in the next few weeks.
  4. Thank you both for your input, it's very much appreciated.
  5. Cheers Rex, that's great info, I'm familiar with the picture you posted, I'm sure I've seen that one labelled as from the Saratoga in early '77. I'm quietly confident that I could reproduce the Sandeman figure on the tail, as there's quite a few pics about of it. Happy modelling Ant
  6. Hi Rex, I'm familiar with the Go Navy site, but completely forgot about the Bu.No listings, the information about the EA-3B came from the Aeromaster instructions, the foreword is written by Ken Austin who I believe was a crewmember (it may be his photo's that are used in the instruction booklet), Ken states: "Our first stop (as for all carriers) was Rota, Spain where we would pick up supplies and take on our spyplanes, EA-3B's of VQ-2 based at Rota" I've found a few pictures of EA-3B's from the late 70's period aboard other carriers and at the Air Tattoo at
  7. Hi all, I have a long term project on the go to build a representative aircraft from all the units of CVW-8 onboard the USS Nimitz, I have the Aeromaster 1/48 CVW-8 special decal set which includes the bulk of the units as below: F-14A Tomcat - VF-41 & 84 A-7E Corsair II - VA-82 & 86 A-6E & KA-6D Intruder - VA-35 EA-6B Prowler - VAQ-135 S-3 Viking - VS-24 SH-3 Sea King - HS-9 That just leaves me three (maybe 4) units to source, the kits for these weren't available when this set was released: RA-5C Vigilan
  8. Great build, but the Viggie just doesn't look right in camo.
  9. Squadron do a vac canopy, but its designed for the Hasegawa kit, I don't know if it will fit the Monogram kit. I do have examples of both the Monogram and Hasegawa (Eduard) kit, I could try the canopy's on each to see what if any the difference is.

  14. A quick update, the last of the airliner kits are listed now, they end next weekend, they are mostly bagged kits, some are without decals, this is reflected in the prices. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/ant_phillips/m.html?item=182540157552&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 The next batch of stuff will be the airliner decals, they'll probably go up next weekend.
  15. More items added, mostly 1/144 airliners this week, from Airfix, Revell and Minicraft, a 1/96 Viscount plus a couple of odd 1/35 figure kits. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/ant_phillips/m.html?item=182540157552&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
