  1. Hi all, One of the many projects I've got going currently is a set of five Hasegawa 1/200 C-130s - all have started life as C-130H kits, but I'm planning on converting/modifying them to create several different variants, including an MC-130H, KC-130T, and possibly L-100-30. As such, I've got a lot of scratch building ahead of me, but wanted to check to make sure I'm not missing something. From what I can tell, there's basically nothing out there by way of aftermarket, short of some six- and eight-bladed props available on shapeways (which have me seriously tempted...), and decals aren't m
  2. Jumping back to the Boeing T-38s, I would love to see either of theirs, or their CT-133s done in 1/48; I've photographed all four auite few times, and they'd make for some neat variation on the shelf... All would need some minor detail updates and alterations, but nothing too crazy.

  3. Hi all; I picked up a Tamiya P-47D "Bubbletop" kit awhile back, and finally got around to looking in the box this weekend, and It looks like there are a couple parts I'll need in order to build the version I'm planning on. First, and most critically, I'm in need of the main engine cowl, part B42. I'm also hoping to build a later bubbletop version (actually a restored warbird) that has the later extended dorsal fin. I'd be more than willing to trade the "un-finned" upper fuselage parts from my kit (H1 and H6), if someone has a set of the later parts they'd be willing to
  4. Oh boy... I thought I had good plans for my two Revell Mudhens, but of course now I've got to either change that decision, or get myself another kit... I got to see two of those jets earlier this year up close - couple interesting details I got from talking to the crew: The mission markings on "Tiger One" are a "tribute" to the CO, whose callsign was "GOAT". The noseart itself almost appeared to be done in chalk or something similarly temporary, and was very heavily faded. TIGER ONE by Josh Kaiser, on Flickr -333 was known as "Triple Cripple" due to bo
  5. One of the three heritage birds from Lakenheath was a C, but was painted in the same dark gray (36118) as the two Es, I assume for consistency's sake. I don't remember ever seeing a "Light Gray" Eagle in anything other than the standard grays (besides the ASB, aggressors, and some of the early experimental stuff, of course) otherwise, but wouldn't mind being proven wrong - the F-15 looks good no matter what color it is!
  6. Any more details on what would be required? I've got the K kit as well, but was thinking of converting it to either an MH-60S or a HH-60G... Or maybe just a straight UH-60L...
  7. Not today, but yesterday... got to see quite a few pretty cool things, including one of the F-16s that was scrambled over DC on 9/11...

  8. I'm possibly interested in the F-16 package - how far along is the started kit?
  9. Sorry for the delay, but thanks a lot, guys! Falcon, that walk-around was great; some better angles on a lot of details than what I had previously. And Dave, those pics are fantastic as well; that first one especially; gives me a much better starting point than what I had, at least! I've been working on some other projects while I continue to gather references on this one, one of which is experimenting with resin casting... Pretty fun, but a bit of a learning curve, to say the least! Should make a lot of my "multiple" builds (6 F-15s, 4 F-16s, and a lot more planned) go a lot quicker, though!
  10. The second thing I'm looking for is photos that show the areas behind the seats, like the center glareshield, and the area behind the rear seat. the few photos I have show that there is a lot more going on that what's included in the kit, but not enough for me to commit to cutting plastic just yet. As for my plans for the kit, I'm building it as one that I've got a particular affinity for, namely 168000, which I got the chance to poke around quite a bit back in 2014, including sitting in the gunner's seat - I took a few "walk-around" detail photos, but of course, this was long befo
  11. Hi all, I'm currently working on my KH 1:48 AH-1Z, and am in the process of adding some detail to it - I've never liked having open photoetched screens with nothing behind them, and on the Cobra, there are a couple that are particularly obvious, because you can see daylight through them. As such, I want to avoid having an empty hole on my model, so I'm looking for photos of what's behind these particular grates: I don't necessarily need extreme detail, but I'd like to at least get an idea of what's behind them, particularly the general location of the structure inside (e.g. is it a

  13. On second thought, I went back and double checked my emails - I noticed I have a receipt from PayPal, but when I log in to your site to check my order status, it doesn't show any recent orders; it may be that I signed in using a different email address than usual, but I can't find anything other than the PayPal receipt in any of the inboxes I can access currently. I'm guessing just a backlog in processing orders, but Just wanted to double check and make sure something didn't get screwed up on my end during the order process - the PayPal invoice is dated April 14, and I can pm/email if you need
