  1. unfortunately, all of the reference photos I had of that helo were on an external hard drive that died on me, and are now lost forever. You are doing a great job on it with the references you have. Keep it up! Aaron ps. Here's a couple of shots of it on airfighters. https://www.airfighters.com/photosearch.php?reg=168800
  2. Really looks great. My friends and I helped get the references for the decals, and I am glad to see that scheme used. Aaron
  3. I think we ALL built this kit at about the age of 12. I still remember getting this kit, putting it together, spray bombing the entire thing forest green, and hanging it from my ceiling. We moved when I was 16, and the thing could not come with me (not to mention, I had learned SO MUCH MORE about modelling then...like actual camouflage) and so I took it outside and launched it into the bed of my truck from 15-20 feet away. The first time it hit, I think I only lost an engine. The thing was built pretty tough, just like the real thing. So, I launched it a few more times until it finally shattered. Great job on the model so far. I look forward to seeing more! Aaron
  4. And the same goes in reverse! We had a little hiccup with PayPal, and Brian was a top-notch communicator throughout the whole thing. I would say that not only did I gain a trading partner through this transaction, I may have even gained a friend. Aaron
  5. This is me holding off for a bit! Just sayin' 🙂 Aaron
  6. Bump. Added Hasegawa F-2B and possible trade option. Also lowered prices on some previously listed kits. Aaron
  7. Yes. You need to source a "steam gauge" instrument panel and a non-square stab from an Academy kit, and you're there. That is my plan as well. I have an MH-60 to build, as well as the UH-60L that I flew in with the National Guard. Aaron
  8. That certainly is an eye-catcher. Great job! Aaron
  9. Bump. Added my E-mail address in case PM's are not working. Aaron
  10. Not sure what was going on. There was only three messages in my inbox, but it's cleared out now. I sent you an E-mail. Aaron
  11. I'm pretty much getting out. I've realized that my buying habits have FAR outweighed my building habits, and that I'm just not really interested in building any more at this stage in my life. I've kept a couple of kits in case the "spark" ever comes back, but these kits and aftermarket need to go. I've set what I believe are reasonable prices on them. If you think otherwise, I am open to offers, especially on multiple items. Shipping is not included, and will be through USPS. No trades are wanted at this time. Please send me a PM with any questions, or if you are interested in purchasing. I will accept PayPal, or a personal check, which will have to clear the bank before shipment. Again, if you want to make a reasonable offer, it will be considered, and probably accepted. I want to get rid of these kits, and to be honest, I'm in a position right now where I could really use the money. EDIT: PM's do not see to be working right now. Please E-mail me at strikeeagle801@yahoo.com with inquiries. Thank you. EDIT: June 8th Added kit and possible trade option. Also lowered prices on some previously listed kits.

  12. Actually, you are BOTH WRONG. We come to find out that the "high speed pass" was actually on Carole Bradshaw, and that Goose' "son" is actually Maverick's. Aaron
  13. So you have to buy both FL35001 AND 002 to get full aircraft markings? Aaron
  14. I've got the 1/32 Tamiya kit up for sale. The kit is open box, bags sealed. Asking 165 dollars plus shipping. I prefer Paypal, but can accept other forms of payment as well. PM me if interested or if you have questions. Aaron
  15. I've had mixed luck with it myself. As something to dip canopies/windows in, it works pretty well. As an over-all gloss coat, it's been hit and miss for me. Sometimes I can get a pretty good, even coat, other times (seeming to do the exact same process as the last time) it will "bead up" and not be smooth. So, I don't know about it. I have not really found anything to replace it with, so I continue to use it, but it isn't a be all to end all like some people think it is. Aaron
