  1. Yep, that is the kit I got. Also got the big hanger which they say is a WWII version but I haven't been able to find any pictures online that look like it either. Figure that one is generic enough not to worry. I found the same pics online and have already saved them along with a few others. Seen one hanger that just had a single row of lights along the centerline but could be a smaller one.
  2. All, I picked up the 72nd scale kit of one of these and have been trying to find pictures of what stuff would be on the insides (besides an aircraft)? Haven't decided whose it will be but Polish, East German or something Middle East are where I am leaning. So, what did the insides look like? What equipment would be stored with the plane? Did they refuel the plane in place with a tanker? I have found some pics online and they show different types of lighting, tables, storage racks, boxes etc. but nothing really clear. Any help greatly appreciated.
  3. Glad to help in any way and keep the pics coming. I live about 45 minutes south of Hill AFB but the 35s don't usually come down this far south. Haven't heard about a deployment but they recently did a big "Elephant Walk" with them and one of my buddies took some pics.
  4. I did a quick check and there is mention of an F-15 scoring a drone kill, possibly 2 different aircraft with kills. 97-0219 is mentioned as having the kill marking but I don't see a mention that it was one of the planes involves. There is also another picture out there of another F-15E from this squadron also carrying a Green Star kill marking.

    EB-57B's ?

    I am planning one in both scales probably both from the 17th DSES, maybe one in the Bicentennial markings. Have the set for the 48th scale Airfix kit and think I have stuff for the 72nd scale one but I might just be thinking of something else.
  6. Sounds good. Can you put a link in here when you create the new one? personally I like small air forces so anything you have works for me.

    EB-57B's ?

    My Dad worked in the 4677th DSES out of Westover AFB and then we moved to Malmstrom AFB with the 17th DSES. I have plans to do a build of planes in 72nd and 48th scale. Really liked the Bicentennial scheme the 17th had and then the slightly modified version afterwards.
  8. Mike, As someone else who has lost a child, I can feel your pain. While my son's circumstances were completely different I am sure my pain is similar. One way to look at this that may help a little is to imagine a rock dropping into a pond. Right now you are in the splash and the emotions are almost unbearable. As you move away from the splash (time) the ripples are still very strong and seem so close together. Further along the ripples start to lessen and happen less often, the pain is still there but it is lower. While I don't think the pain will ever go away it does become possible to function again.
  9. Help. I am building this as part of the Lesser Air Forces GB over at Britmodeller but the pics I can find online don't give me any details about the wings. Trying to find out if they carried the roundels in all 4 positions and/or if the serial (JDFT-2) was also carried on the wings. Lots of pics of their helicopters and the new trainers but only side shots of the Islander so far. Have seen what looks like 2 upper wing roundels and serials on the top of one of their first Cessna's and a later Cessna seems to only show a roundel on the right wing. Has anyone every seen one of their aircraft fly over and noticed the markings or can find any pics? Thanks in advance.
  10. All, I picked up two of the Aeroclub conversion sets for this kit to make an Argentinian version from the Falklands and an Australian version from Vietnam. Anybody have one or two in their stash that they need to get rid of?

  12. Wonder if this build was ever finished? I have the kit and decals in the stash and just need to get the tank or make my own. Was bummed that Aero Union lost their contract and are getting rid of (or may have already) their fleet as I still think their P-2s and P-3s were the best looking tankers out there.
  13. Thanks, it does have a lot of action. I used Tamiya TS-35 Park Green but I think it is a little light.
  14. Finished this one a little while ago so figured I would show it off. Kit went together well. GL was painted with rattle cans and the base was supposed to be also but I ran into a liquid masking issue and ended up doing it by hand. Makes a neat display.
  15. Sorry Scott, didn't see the post (and didn't get a notification either). Will get it weighed and a total cost for you. Thanks, Phil
  16. This is the book you need if you are working on Zoukei-muua's 1/32nd scale J7W1 Shin Den. Lots of detail of the real aircraft and of the build. Text is in both Japanese and English and the info can be used to build any scale version of this interesting aircraft. See the review: http://scaleplasticandrail.com/kaboom/index.php/component/content/article/40/601-concept-note-sws-no1-shinden Selling my copy for $30.00 US plus postage (need your zip code to calculate). This should also be available for media priced shipping which is cheaper but takes longer. Prefer Paypal but will accept Cashiers Check or Money Order.
  17. Won this in the raffle at Nats. Not my scale so passing it along. Box got a little mushed thanks to Delta's baggage handlers but the kit survived just fine. Oh and there are 2 of the vehicles in the box. Not a bad deal. $10.00 US plus postage (need your zip code to calculate). Prefer Paypal but will accept a Cashiers Check or Money Order.
  18. Still in AF Dark Blue. Thanks guys. Found a few more pics under Step Van. Looks like they were Chevrolet P30s. Found a couple more pics but still not anything from the interior. Heard a lot of guys saying most of these were modified locally based on their job. But can't believe all these modelers didn't take pics of their rides.
  19. It does indeed. Thanks. The instructions show a different color interior in the cab. Do you recall that? (not that I trust instruction painting directions that much but when you can't find anything else...) Still hoping for some pics.
  20. Got the Hasegawa Ground Crew set with the little crew van and want to do a little detailing to it but I am having no luck finding info on the web. Anyone have any good pics or a good web site location for one of these? Looking for some interior pics and colors especially but any pic with one in it would be helpful.
  21. Just back from Nats and finally got a chance to look at my Convention Package. Since the decals are once again not in my scale, I am putting them up for sale. $10.00 includes shipping in the US. Paypal preferred but will accept a cashiers check or money order. Sheet comes with markings for 4 aircraft.
  22. Phillippe, Saw a picture of this on display at an airshow a few years ago and have been searching for more on it ever since. So glad you decided to post here. It is even better seeing it all it's glory. Fantastic job.
