  1. Haha, small world. I have seen that particular osprey twice. Wish I had some binoculars to see the unit, pretty good looking bird.
  2. These are cool. My office is in downtown Wilmington, NC and I see v-22's fly over daily. One of them I have seen a few times has a red checkered tail, maybe vmm264? Just basing that off of their patch, so an uneducated guess. Looks like a pretty cool scheme. Used to not be interested in a kit for these, but since I see them all day I have changed my mind and would build one. Lucky for me I see a lot of USMC stuff, AH-1s, UH-1, AV-8b, CH-53 and then some USAF stuff daily.
  3. After some purging and selling on ebay I am down to 80ish. Need to update my list on scalemates.
  4. I would build one in 48th or 35th. Its a good looking bird and my father was a missilier and flew in those uh-1s so would be neat to build the replacement for me.
  5. I think I have read that one, but dont recall these colors in there, but worth a check again. Neither can I, but faded colors perhaps. Thanks Paul. I will be building 61-040 as my father flew it when he was in SAC and as a youngster in the mid/late 80's it was at an air show at Bergstrom that him and I attended. I remember him telling me he flew that one and we talked to the crew a lot. So I will probably do the three tone Strategic camo as I suspect that is what it was in when we saw it together. Thanks for the info gents, learn something new every day :) Mike
  6. Makes sense to me, thank you sir
  7. I was perusing the local hobby shop and discovered these two colors from Model Master: 2027 Dark Green (B-52) FS 34096 2026 Dark Drab (B-52) FS 24091 does anyone know what these are? I bought them out of curiosity, but havent seen any B-52 schemes that call for these.
  8. So I too also just moved to North Carolina, but to Wilmington. There is nothing here hobby wise except a Michaels and a Hobby Lobby. Back home I have one of the best LHS in Kings Hobby. I did find that Hayes Hobby House and Hobbit Hobby shop are well worth the visit. They are two hours away from me and as Tank says above about an hour/hour and a half from RDU.
  9. I did not enjoy The Last Jedi. I didnt see Solo in theaters (but only because I was in the middle of moving cross country and not because of the movie) but I rented it on demand and lasted 25 minutes before turning it off. I won't waste my hard earned bucks seeing a Star Wars movie in a theater again for some time. But - Bandai Star Wars models will be bought!
  10. Order here from these guys http://www.sealmodel.com/product_details.php?item_id=5178 I bought from them and had the kit in two weeks. My bad, didnt realize it was sold out here. Thats what I get for posting from my phone and not reading the small print. I do find it interesting that this kit wasnt produced longer or in greater quanity than it was.
  11. Since we have relocated across country and are renting while we house shop I purchased this from Lowes: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-Quiet-Tech-4-3-Gallon-Portable-Electric-Twin-Stack-Quiet-Air-Compressor/1000125721 I have run it upstairs in our house (before we moved) and did not wake up our infant while he was sleeping downstairs. It is about 60 decibels loud.
  12. Seems like this one maybe tough to get at first. Stevens International shows it out of stock also. Hopefully more on their way ITALERI ITA-2779 1/48 Chinook HC2/CH47F Helicopter $69.99 Out Of Stock
