  1. Do the -E kits come with the Pave Tack pod for the -F? Thanks!
  2. You might have to cut the conformals and insert/build-up a plug to account for the stretch of the -XL, but I think it could work... I had the same thought myself for a bombed-up What-If model, combined with an enlarged avionics spine. Mike
  3. I believe the resin conversion sets ElectroSoldier mentioned for both the single and two-seat -XLs were from Lone Star in Japan. Homemade conversions that included the fuselage/wings as one unit, and then other bits. Was intended to be used with the Hasegawa kit: http://lonestars.web.fc2.com/LSR7201.htm He released sets for both aircraft, sold out of both, then re-released the single-seat set, and has now sold out of it. I managed to miss out on all of the releases, so am also now in the camp of cheering for Kinetic to scale down their 1/48 kits. Would love to have a two-seater or two.

    US Navy C-130Ts

    Am I safe in assuming that the overall gray for the black ID markings scheme on the USN C-130Ts: is the same gray (FS 25237) that is specified for the earlier light gray ID markings scheme: In these pics, the earlier scheme's gray looks a bit more blue, but in most photos, the two grays look the same. Another question - what changes were made when some -Ts received 8-blade props? https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9417819 Thanks! Mike
  5. Is it safe to assume the C-130 will be a Stretch -30J as depicted in the photo? Mike
  6. Always glad to help encourage others to expand their reference libraries!
  7. Per that page, Amazon should have it December 15th. Mike
  8. If you can wait a few weeks, this one will be available: https://www.amazon.com/Mikoyan-MiG-23-MiG-27-Russian-Aircraft/dp/1910809314/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=mig-23&qid=1571845090&s=books&sr=1-1 Would include all the info from the Aerofax volume, plus a lot more... Mike
  9. Haven't been able to find any images thus far, so I thought I would ask - did any US C-130s receive special Bicentennial markings for '76? Thanks!
  10. Does anyone know what the color is for the pale blue used in the current JASDF C-130H scheme? Is it the same as that used on the U-125A? Thanks!
  11. Not sure if this is the correct forum or not for posting this, so if not, Moderators, please let me know. The comment/question came up in another forum on ARC a while back, and out of respect to the specific forum, I will not post a response there. However, I did want to respond to the comment to state that a couple of the special tail art schemes for the C-17 have recently become available in decal form: https://www.shopdrawdecal.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=44-C17-20 https://www.shopdrawdecal.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=44-C17-21 As well as an older one that has been out for a while: https://www.shopdrawdecal.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=44-C17-16
  12. Per this discussion, it seems at least one Israeli Phantom had fixed slats:
  13. No worries, I was trying to play well with others... This C-133 would be quite colorful, but all that color would have to be painted:
  14. Please do, I am curious, as this is not a thread in the Caracal page...
