  1. Thank you as always Tim! Aaron
  2. Does anyone have a partial sheet they can give me the Vermont section from? The only part I absolutely need is the "The Green Mountain Boys" slogan that goes on the vertical tail. I got one on just fine, but screwed up on the other. Right now, it just says "Green Mountain Boys" on one side, and I'd like to fix it. I could try to paint it on, or even try to match the font and print my own (or even just leave it that way) but I'd rather try to get the decal first. This is the first kit I've tried to complete in about 10 years, and I'm trying to do my best on it. If anyone can help, I'd really, really be grateful! I can pay shipping, trade decals, whatever. Thank's for looking Aaron
  3. Articles are now saying he was NOT shot down...Said he ran out of fuel and went in. Also, he was killed in the crash. Buddy of mine got some great shots of the the two F-15's launching and recovering out of Portland for the mission. Aaron

    How to attach already painted missiles/bombs to the model

    Cool. Thank's guys. I appreciate it. Aaron
  5. Hello all It's been a LONG time since I've actually finished a model, and I've got a question here. I've working on getting my decals on my bombs and missiles, and am looking towards attaching them onto the finished model when I get there. The thing is, I can't remember what I've done in the past to attach them onto the rails and racks. I know I don't want to use regular model glue, as it won't stick to the paint (or if it will, it'll mar it) so, what else can I use? Super glue? I'll take any suggestions I can get. Thank's Aaron
  6. Hello all I'm looking for the control stick from the 1/48 Tamiya F-16C kit.I'm hoping someone has one left over from when they used an A/M cockpit set. My stick broke off of the sprue, I taped it to a "safe" place, and promptly lost it. I have an extra for this project from another kit, but need to find a replacement for that one. Thank's for the help. Glad to pay postage or trade a weapon or two. Aaron

    Best replacement for an F-15 is... an F-15

    Then bring in more F-16 Block 70's then. But I don't see that happening either. Honestly, as much as I would LOVE to see more F-15's built, I agree with you. I don't think new F-15's are going to happen. OR F-16's for that matter. Or new F-22's as some have suggested elsewhere. I think that we've put all our eggs in the F-35 basket. Aaron

    Best replacement for an F-15 is... an F-15

    Based on the same setup on stations 1/9 as 2/8, I get 24...which is a helluva lot of missiles! I have long stated the USAF needs to build more F-15's. I hope they go with this program. I don't know why they would go with single seaters though...They have not built an F-15C since the early 2000's (I think?) and I'm not sure the tooling is still around. I would think since they are still turning out F-15SA's, it would be easier to just build two-seaters. And, an WSO would never hurt with situational awareness, and would allow for multi-mission capability to be kept. Aaron
  9. Not my scale. Bought it by mistake. Came with no outer wrapping from Japan. Inner bags are sealed. Asking $20.00 plus actual shipping. Paypal preferred, but other forms of payment accepted. Any questions, including a shipping quote, please PM me. Aaron

    Older/Oldest Boxing or New/Newer Boxing?

    One example I can think of where older is better is the Revell F-15E. If you can find the older boxings (like the ProModeller) go for them. The older boxings were molded in Korea, and were of a lot better quality. The newer boxings are molded in China, are of a different, more brittle plastic, and are showing their age. Aaron

    1/35 Black Op's parts released.

    The set looks good, but I'm still waiting for them to release the MH-60M conversion set we gave them references for. It's looking like by the time they do that, the new MH-60L will be out, and if we are lucky, KH may come out with a Mike as well. Aaron
  12. The Irene decals came in today, so I'm ready for the kit. I'm glad to wait a few months for a more accurate kit though. It'll probably just sit on the shelf in the bedroom closet for a while anyway! Thank's for the update. Aaron

    Great Wall Hobby F-15E Strike Eagle 1:48

    Yeah, I hope they do the SG at some point as well. My hope as some point is to do EVERY version of the Strike. But, that is a lot of time, effort, and money, so I'm not sure it will ever happen. Aaron

    Great Wall Hobby F-15E Strike Eagle 1:48

    They have a Kilo boxing out already. It's the GWH fuselage with the Academy Kilo weapons, decals and CFT's. I'm glad they are coming out with an Echo. I was about ready to just use an F-15I kit, but now I'll just do my India AS an India, and pick up the Echo. https://www.ebay.com/itm/D-CORPORATION-1-48-ROKAF-F-15K-PIN-POINT-SHOOTER-DCM48003P-LIMITED/273260768579?hash=item3f9f9c6d43:g:M1IAAOSwxphbFi~e Aaron
