  1. I'm not aware of a resin replacement fighter nose for the Monogram photo Panther. However, it would probably cost the same if there was one available as buying a complete kit. They are usually pretty cheap and fairly common.
  2. Get vaxed and wear a mask. Hopefully Darwin will take care of cleansing the gene pool. Whenever I go to a public place I double mask, carry my own hand sanitizer with me. For me, when I go into a public building the masks are an identifier of those that are just a bit smarter than those that aren't wearing one. Identifiers like some bumper stickers I see when I'm driving.
  3. Jeff, if the previous responder backs out I have a Tamiya A-1H open box all bags factory sealed. Box has a little shelf wear but not bad. I can sweeten the deal. I can include a Hasegawa 1/48 F/A-18E or a Hasegawa F-14A for the Fury. 

  4. I have a Tamiya Navy A-1H as well to trade if the first one backs out.
  5. On ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/324754562625
  6. I bought a kit from them a few years ago. No problems with the transaction.
  7. I have the above kit for sale on Ebay. Box has a little shelf wear. Kit is sealed in original factory bag with instruction sheet and original decals in perfect condition. The kit also comes with a Hypersonic corrected nose gear door and a resin Escapac ejection seat. If interested PM me. Thanks for looking.
  8. I have for sale the above kit on Ebay. Open box, see photos. If you have any questions PM me.Thanks for looking.
  9. I have what you are looking for. PM me.
  10. If Tamiya does a C/D Phantom it is a pretty easy jump to a J. The C/D had the thick wing. Add the wing and a new sprue for the longer burner cans and you are pretty much there. Maybe some cockpit bits too.
  11. I've waited decades for Fury's, Cougars and Banshees. Now they're gone. Aside from one or two manufacturers, almost all kits have some sort of build issue. Complainers complain. I was pretty darned happy with Kitty Hawk.
  12. I am thinning the herd a bit. I have the above kit for sale. $35 plus shipping. Kit is complete and unbuilt. PM me if interested. Thanks.
  13. I have the above kit for sale for $35.00 plus shipping. The markings are for the NAS Olathe KS reserve Corsair that had the mix of gray over white and GSB parts. Kind of a hard version to find. The unusual paint scheme would add an unusual looking Corsair to your display. Pm me if interested. Thanks.
  14. Nice comparison between the first edition and latter ones. Monogram essentially retooled the entire kit. I had the early kit but that was around the time when it first came out. Shows how old I am. It looked like some parts had been painted in your A model. Then I realized it was molded in two colors...lol.
  15. I apologize if I misspoke as to which version and subject I wanted to build. I have not decided yet. Thanks for lots of good info. What I'm going to do going forward is acquiring an ESCI D for the rotors and armament. I will hold the HB kit in reserve in case the airframe I decide to go with has the C boom. In which case I will remove the C boom and apply it to the monogram kit. Is there a good internet source for photos? Thanks again for your input. Just curious. Were the C booms sent as a kit to mod the B's or were they from retrieved damaged C's? Were the mods carried out locall
  16. I really don't have a specific aircraft in mind. This is just a start of assembling info and possibly parts when I find a aircraft I want to focus on. Looking for photos and any other stuff I can find.
  17. As I mentioned earlier I had bought the HB kit before the R/M kit. I compared the fuselages and if the particular aircraft I wanted to model had the latter boom, it looks like a pretty straight swap putting the C boom on the RM kit. They match up very well.
  18. Thanks for that info. Very helpful. I had bought the simple Hobby Boss UH-1C and was going to use the R/M kit to supplement. The R/M kit looks a whole lot better than the HB kit. I'll Keep an eye out for the ESCI kit. Are the different armament parts available either in a kit or aftermarket? Plus decals seem to be an issue.
