    1/48 fighters & light bombers, 1/72 big stuff, thinking about 1/350 ships but no time for that yet.
  1. Bought the former Cobra Co KC-97 resin set from Lone Star recently, still looking for the Eduard photoetch (72-351) if anybody has one lying around. Thanks again!
  2. Wow - 23.10 Euros for the set, and 32.16 Euros for shipping. About what I expected...
  3. Thanks Rob - I'll have to check on the shipping. Found the Eduard photoetch set for the KC-97 @ a shop in Italy for a reasonable price, but their economy shipping was like $25. OUCH!
  4. Thanks Scott, that's the kind of insight I was looking for. The fact that he hasn't taken his website down is what made me wonder. Like I said I can't imagine what they have been going through since the fire. Here in Colorado Springs we had two devastating fires back to back (Waldo Canyon in 2012 and Black Forest in 2013). Some folks were rebuilt and moved back in a little over a year, some are never going back and others are still chipping away at it - the Flying W Ranch is doing bare-bones operation while they rebuild their infrastructure. One of my Army buddies and his wife bought a place on the edge of the Hayman Fire (2002) burn that shouldn't burn again for a very long time. I'm 61, retired Army and semi-retired myself - I understand that at some point you just want to take it easy. Still got a little fire in my belly but I can see it coming. I know Mike West has been looking for ways to restructure his operations @ Lone Star Models so he can enjoy life a little more. I spent last night online and in my personal library researching JATO/RATO boosters for my next 1/72 B-47 build. Couple of pictures in Alwyn Lloyds' "B-47 Stratojet", some pages from an original Aerojet manual on the 15KS-1000 bottle from 1963 and part of a DOD report on long-term storage of the same and I've got dimensions, weights and diagrams. May end up making my own, but Pauls' set is/was a masterpiece that will be tough to match. That said, I'll be all over the Cobra/Lone Star upgrade/detail sets for my KC-97 and early F-8 Crusader build when Mike gets back online. Life's too short! Tracy
  5. An old buddy of mine was an IP with the Tomcat RAG when they were filming the original, and he said pretty much the same thing. Most of the extras in the classroom scenes were his star--struck students.
  6. Hello All, Does anyone know if Paul Fisher is planning to reestablish his business? I know they lost their home & workshop in the Paradise Fire last year, but the website is still up with a "not taking orders now" message up front. I can't imagine the feelings they have dealt with since then, but just wondering if anyone that knows them personally could provide any insight. Thanks in advance, Tlott

  8. Yep, I've bought former Cobra stuff from Mike before and he's a great guy. Per his Facebook page he's been dealing with some personal family stuff and reevaluating his production system. I'll buy the resin from him if I don't find anything before he gets back into production mode. Just wondering if anybody has any they aren't going to use lying around. Found the Eduard photoetch set at a shop in Italy, but they want more for shipping than the set is worth. Still looking! Tlott
  9. I've got one of the Cutting Edge sets if you're still looking. Picked it up in Tokyo on my last trip and won't be using it. Tlott
  10. Happy Holidays all, Looking for extra bits for my Academy KC-97, specifically the Cobra Company/ Lone Star detail set (72-009) and the Eduard photoetch (72-351). I'm located in Colorado, USA to figure shipping, postal code 80905. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
