  1. F-15E Strike Eagle color issue

    Yes. Here's a load-out from Operation Southern Watch. http://www.f-15e.info/joomla/en/weapons/loadout-configurations/127-southern-watch They can carry up to four AIM-7's or AIM-120's on the lower CFT pylons. The F-15E is not usually assigned to a CAP roll (that's what the A/B/C/D is for) but it CAN perform the mission. The CFT's take very little from the F-15E's operational envelope. Aaron
  2. Specific kits you sold and bought back later?

    Too many to list. But, off the top of head, Italeri/AMT B-52's and KC-135's, Revell A-6E, Tamiya 1/32 F-16's.
  3. 1/35 scale H-60 Rotor Head

    Hurry it up already. I'm not building my two -60's till it is done. BTW, do the rotor mast as well. That thing is a pain in the butt to get the seams out of without ruining the part! Aaron
  4. Is the F-16 the T-birds or the Block 50? Aaron
  5. Resin Guys need some help!

    I might be able to help with refs after this weekend...Heading down to Portland for the Open House. Aaron
  6. Strikeeagle801...myself

    Money refunded today. Please delete this thread. Aaron
  7. Does the Apache and Black Hawk use the same wheels?

    That would be great. I really need a set for a memorial build I am doing for a friend who was KIA in Afghanistan. Aaron
  8. Any interest in a 160th SOAR reference CD?

    No CD pics either Tim. If the 160th is uncomfortable with photos out there that THEY authorized in the first place, I am not comfortable distributing photos that they may not have had, or doing this project on my own. Floyd and Aaron may feel different about theirs, but this is the way I feel about my photos. I would just say that this is the end of the project. Period. Aaron
  9. Kinetic 1/72 C-17 Update

    I want one. And, after seeing a few here for Exercise Mobility Guardian, an A-400 to put next to it. Aaron
  10. FS: 1/32nd Scale Packages and Kits

    Must be then. Thank you for the response. Aaron
  11. FS: 1/32nd Scale Packages and Kits

    Are you planning on selling the 1/32 F-16 package you bought from me a while back? If so, I'd be interested in getting it back. Aaron
  12. Recommendations on first kit

    I've never built the Academy kit. The new weapons and decals make the kit worth the cost, but honestly, the Academy kit has a lot of issues with it. Revell is the way to go with the F-15E, and can be a pretty simple, straight-forward build. My suggestion is to buy a Revell kit at 40% off from Micheal's or Hobby Lobby, and use the decals, weapons and pylons from the Academy kit to update the Revell kit. Barring that though, I really have no hints on the Academy kit. I'm sure someone on here does though. Aaron ps. If you go the Revell route, this will help you. Also, Great Wall Hobbies will be coming out with an E at some point in the future (they have an F-15I and F-15K already) and it will kick Revell out of the Numero Uno position.
  13. Recommendations on first kit

    Gunship Gray is the proper color for an F-15E. The F-15 Grey is one of the two colors used on F-15A/B/C/D's in the Mod Eagle scheme. As for which type of paint, I know that a lot of people on here prefer acrylics over enamel due to the toxic fumes enamels (and the thinners used with them) have. If you have plenty of ventilation, using a paint booth, etc, then that is not an issue. I tend to use both. I use mostly enamels, but prefer some colors in acryl. Black for instance does not seem to spray as well as an enamel as the acryl does. I use Model Master paints BTW. Aaron
