  1. Any thoughts on doing these Kursad?
  2. Well, here's a Turkey for Christmas! Built OOB with the exception of Master Model probe. The decals are from Fightertown Decals 48-012 "Test Cats" for an aircraft used during the AIMVAl/ACEVAL trials , the windscreen tint is from Furball decals. One or two self induced hiccups but this is a superb kit
  3. I'd like to give a warm welcome to the various intelligence agencies who are monitoring this thread.
  4. Superscale or possibly Microscale did a sheet for the Libyan deployment of the USS Coral Sea squadrons.
  5. New Tool 1/48 RF-8A/G Crusader 1/48 Hawker Hunter 1/48 Bristol Beaufort
  6. Well, mine arrived today. A nice tribute to Rick Chin on the instruction sheet and a credit to Colin K on the decal instructions.
  7. To you too! Stephen
  8. I had one on pre-order and it was shipped a week ago according to the e-mail . Stephen
  9. The Italeri 1/48 kit came with VF-213 decals Someone might have them spare.
  10. Those weapons look as if they've been miniaturised from the real thing.
  11. RIP Sir.
  12. Built for the 2016 Special Schemes SIG display at Telford. A lovely kit to build. decals are from Two Bobs , the FOD covers are from Steel Beach, seats from Quickboost, the AIM-9M from the spares box with Airwaves seeker cover. The ACMI pod was scratchbuilt as the kit item was replaced by an updated version in 2011-2012. Wheels are from Royale Resin
  13. Thanks for the kind words.
  15. Coming from Brigade Models
  16. Thanks, the Quickboost seats fit with no problems at all.
  17. That looks great.
  18. Fantastic work. Your finish is superb.
  19. Superb! Stephen
  20. Thanks for all the kind words. The ladders do come with the kit.
  21. This is the Kinetic 1/48 F/A-18C Hornet . Nice but a little over engineered in places. The instructions are not great and it helps if you have some knowledge of the aircraft and/or good references. I used Jake Melampy's Modern Hornet Guide and the DACO Uncovering the Boeing F/A-18A/B/C/D Hornet. Mods to the kit were : Scratchbuilt EW fairing on the fuselage side (as it wasn't included in the kit). Wolfpack Design SJU-17 NACES seat Royale Resin wheels Eduard Brassin AGM-65E Maverick The decals are from the kit except for the markings on the weapons which came from Flying Leathernecks. The base is from Skunk Models Workshop
  22. I'd like VF-114 in the grey and white along with VF-102 in the TPS scheme circa 1986.
