    CD48150 - F-15 Eagle - The Early Years

    I may just leave the horizontals alone as it appears the later dogtooth type was installed on the pre production planes with the original wingtips at some point. Rick L.

    So to correct a dogtooth stabilizer back to early configuration, you just fill the notched leading edge, right? The dogtooth wasn't an add on to the chord? Rick L.

    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    1/48 F-107A -because its time 1/48 B-45A -the unobtainable Collect Aire kit needs replaced 1/48 XB-51 - see above 1/350 Golf II K-129 sub -I won't even ask for a Glomar Explorer 1/25 Allis Chalmers 7010/Oliver 1855/White 2-150/tractors -because in the mid 70s Ertl abandoned us farm kids after the International 1466, John Deere 4440. and Massey Ferguson 1155 Blueprint kit series to go make cars instead; never to kit another agricultural subject. And because the world doesn't need another Bf109. Rick L.

    Kitty Hawk F11F Tiger project reportedly declared dead

    Crouching Tiger Hidden Pitfalls? Well it is KH. But I hope not, because I would really like to sell my FM kit and upgrade the Blue Angels collection. Rick L.

    1/4oz bottle caps?

    Are you wanting to screw the original metal lid down over these? Rick L.

    1/4oz bottle caps?

    I'm guessing PMI-15 with an outside diameter of .577. .002 makes a nice press fit. Rick L.

    Mission Models Polyeurethane Intermix gone bad?

    Disappointing to here this. Especially for us northern customers who use northern distributors and have orders sitting on trucks and in mailboxes at well below freezing for periods of time beyond our control. If this product cannot freeze at all, then it’s not going to work for a majority of the continental US. Have a few bottles but have not tried to use it yet. I need to go look at them. Rick L. Blaming the the user at the end of the supply pipeline for this issue is an odd choice.

    F-89J Scorpion "Pod"

    I second this. It has a very purpose built look to it. Rick L.
