  2. Blackburn Buccaneer in 1/48 to replace the Airfix kit and also in 1/48 the F-8A/B/C/D Crusader as well as the RF-8A/G version. Lots of colourful options from them.

  4. That is fantastic, the tanks look great.
  5. BOL rails were carried from the start with AIM-9M loaded on them .2250litre drop tanks , Skyshadow ECM and BOZ pods .
  6. I'm surprised that Academy hasn't re-released the 1/48 CH-53E , it commands high prices on ebay.
  7. I'd prefer it if it was Kinetic .Why Hasegawa never continued with the F-8A/B/C/D/K/L surprised me .
  8. The aftermarket set that you need for a build will be missing so you will purchase a replacement after an exhaustive search then when the build is complete you will find the first set.

  10. Here's a Revell 1/48 Dassault Rafale EQ in Qatari Air Force markings
  11. I think that the VA-35 A-6 is on a strike mission, that looks like a Mk83 on the MER which would be a large weapon for a surface patrol mission.
  12. I believe that VMA(AW)-533 A-6 Intruders would have an MER on stations one and five with Mk20, Mk82 or Mk82 Snakeye . Station two would be a GBU-12 500lb LGB, station three would be a drop tank and station four an AGM-45 Shrike ARM. VA-35 A-6E pic from the second night of the war after a SAM hit. The AGM-84E SLAM was used by VA-75 during Desert Storm .
  13. Really looking forward to the A-6 Intruder sheet.
  14. I've built three of the new mould kits without a problem. The tolerances are quite tight . I found that the easiest way to install the cockpit was to glue the fuselage halves together then to insert it from underneath.
  15. The book has photos of 527 loaded with 28 x Mk20, another shot shows 4 x GBU-10 .
  16. Looking through the Squadron/Signal book "Intruder" page 46 shows Salty Dog 527 . It says in the accompanying text that it is composite replacement wing prototype #2 .
