  1. The Hasegawa TBF-1C has recently been re-released under the Hobby 2000 label as shown here. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/H2K72009?result-token=QcI0x https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/H2K72010?result-token=QcI0x
  2. https://www.hmhobbies.co.uk/mrp-233-special-brown-fs-30140-30ml.html https://www.hmhobbies.co.uk/mrp-244-tan-fs-20400-30ml.html https://ak-interactive.com/product/usaf-asia-minor-scheme/ https://airbrushes.com/product_info.php?cPath=400_4_429_202_208&products_id=2153 https://airbrushes.com/product_info.php?cPath=400_4_429_202_208&products_id=2154
  3. You haven't said what scale you're building, in 1/48 the latest Revell kits have dropped flaps/slats out of the box.
  4. The Saudi Tornados are to the same standard as the RAF GR.4 currently, they didn't have a dedicated ECR version . The Italian Air Force do use the ECR . If you want to build an ECR then get the ECR version , if you want to make a Saudi Tornado then purchase the GR1 although do bear in mind that they were upgraded over the years parallel with the RAF so it would depend on the timeframe .
  5. IF you can't find it the Fight's On Decal Sheet #2 has a MiG 17 Silhouette option on it https://s44.photobucket.com/user/Mike5401/media/Fights On Decals/FOD48002 COVER PAGEsm_zpsl3atwm3f.jpg.html
  6. Dimensionally it's probably the Monogram kit although it needs some work to come up to current standards. The Hobbyboss kit might be easier to build but you would have to backdate it to the A-10A without the LASTE mods (various antennae ) . The dual rail launcher for the AIM-9 was used from the late '80s . The A-10's were actually withdrawn from Bentwaters/Woodbridge/Alconbury by about 1993 .
  7. McDonnell Douglas QF-4N? There's a great article about this aircraft in the January 2020 Combat Aircraft along with some great shots of it. https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Navy/McDonnell-QF-4N-Phantom-II/1498409/L
  8. I spoke to one of the Airfix guys on the stand at Telford, he thought that a Blue Steel release would be first followed by Black Buck.
  9. I order from HM Hobbies, while they do show out of stock I've found that they get re-stocked quite quickly and their service is very good.
  10. Mine arrived today along with the weapons set. Preorder from Hobbyeasy.
  11. The kit does come with ordnance.
  12. I got the same thing, I had to change my credit card # as it had been so long since the order that it had expired, if I had known what the shipping cost was I might have re considered the order.

    1/48 C-130J to H

    Doesn't the C-130H have external fuel tanks?
  14. Are both early and late canopies included or is it just an open and closed (early option) ?
  15. I spoke to the owner of a hobby shop in Hong Kong a couple of weeks ago and he said AMK were waiting for instruction sheets .
  16. They are coming in 1/48 From Furball .
  17. I think Furball Designs are working on it in 1/48 scale, Great Wall have a ltd edition of their 1/72 F-15E with decals for it out just now. https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/b4snpquoyumrdcg747wc.html
  18. Can I suggest some early Panavia Tornado decals especially for the Italian Air Force in the grey / green / aluminium scheme . These haven't been well covered. Some of the prototype schemes are quite interesting too, https://www.flickriver.com/photos/classic_aviation/8310773280/ https://www.flickriver.com/photos/classic_aviation/8262769168/ https://www.flickriver.com/photos/classic_aviation/8178277847/
