    A-10 Question

    As an A-10 Instructor with the "Flying Tigers at England AFB, LA, my first logbook entry with AIM-9's was in March, 1990

    F-4 White Stencil Decal

    Really happy to hear that Jake. My Nevada RF-4C's will be much better off because of that :)

    CD48139 - 1/48 F-111A

    I'd like to see Nellis AFB jets. Growing up in Las Vegas, they were always quite a site coming up initial with their wings swept back. As young kids, we were sure they were "spy jets" - because of the black bellies :) One of the kids on my Little League team had a dad Lt. Col George Peterson (?) who was flying them at Nellis - and got us a tour of one. Might as well have been looking at the Millennium Falcon... Always had a soft spot for them ever since.

    CD144006 - 1/144 C-5B/M Galaxy

    Kursad - super late response... Did you ever sell that C-5? I got both of those sheets - and they're both really nice (as always) :)
  7. Werner's Wings has a great decal sheet for this in 1/48th (in case you weren't aware of it). I've got that one and they're set in 1/32nd - really nice. http://wernerswings.com/Ritchie-friends.html

    Tamiya X-22 questions

    Yes - and Future is really a floor wax... Point being - if you can use it sucessfully - then it works. I've used it thinned around 50% with "Mr. Leveling Thinner" - than a light mist coat of straight Mr. L.T., and it works very nicely.

    Tamiya X-22 questions

    If you go to the website "Large Scale Planes" - Chuck did a beautiful 1/32 Tamiya F-15C and he describes his transition to X-22. It's a beautiful build - and worth your time.

    Best primer?

    I've used Tamiya Primer out of the can on Shapeways parts without any issues.

    FB-111A - Pictures and Armament?

    Not sure if this is operationally accurate. But here's some intake images of the FB-111 in the Dark Vark scheme at the Strategic Air Command Museum in Omaha

    FB-111A - Pictures and Armament?

    I did this FB-111 a long time ago - and wanted to do something completely different...

    The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    I enjoyed it - as have my friends and their kids. Not perfect of course - but like modelling - if I enjoy the process, then it's been time well spent. I've never had a perfect project, or seen a perfect movie. Something that still draws me in after 40 years is a rare thing. I could go on about things I didn't like - but with all things Star Wars, I'm happy that there's still so much to enjoy, and I try to focus on that. I'm still working on the DeAgostini Falcon and R2-D2, just picked up the Bandai PG Falcon, and am looking forward to the new Star Wars world at Disneyland and Disney World. When I'm there - I'm amazed at how strong the force is (pun intended) with so many kids. The themes that have kept this universe alive will still be around long after we're gone. I'm happy about that, and look forward to what is yet to come. Luke didn't die... Point raised by a friend. When Obi-Wan disappeared - most of us thought he died (I did) - but, he projected himself there on the Death Star - as Luke did on the ice planet. There was no Obi-Wan body - as we could clearly see when Darth Vader stepped on his robes. He went to the next level of consciousness and became one with the Force. Yet Obi-Wan was still around to mentor Luke and give him guidance. Luke did the same thing at the end of this one; "The circle is now complete" - and Luke will be there to mentor Rey. The ending music, imagery and symbology was very powerful if you were willing to see it.

    Overwhelmed with orders once again

    Hi Winnie - there aren't any underwing tanks in this kit. All Hasegawa kits of the F-104 (to my knowledge) have the longer inner fin on the tip tanks carried by the later models. I modified the kit fins to be symmetrical by simply cutting down the inner fin to match the outer so that it was correct for an F-104C. Thank you for the compliment :)
