Should I mention the wheel hubs? 

 

 

 

I'm kidding kidding! There's nothing wrong with the wheel hubs so don't look.

 

 

 

or...is there?🤣

Now if you all what to argue over detail, argue over the detail that is missing.

 

And yes, there really is a detail missing from all the pic's I've seen posted here but I'm not going to say what it is, I don't want to be bashed as a rivet counter.

Oh now you've done it, you've really gone and done it. Were all going to scouring the pics for something that's not there. :whistle:

So obvious too! If it was a snake, it would've bit me.

But Zacto, you're showing a pic of the MK VIV 50983402934.09492.2-1. The D's used a MkVIV 50983502934.09492.2-1. Quite frankly I'm disappointed you didn't know that.

I tell you, I am constantly amazed at the wealth of knowledge that can be found here on ARC. Good catch niart17, but didn't some D's upgrade to the dash 2 after they had problems integrating the dash 1 with the fragistator assembly, which as you probably already know, was only included so that the torbisactor wouldn't generate spurious signals.

Extremely useful information. It never crossed my mind that some need to show off. Never at all...

That's not it.  If you watch Season 9 Episode 87 of J.A.G., Mac and Harm handle the case of a foreign injection molding company that causes the crash of a polymer prototype that caused insanity of a local squadron.

Mac looked extraordinarily hot in that episode.

One of the longest running comedy series ever, now in season 209 episode 5217. 

 

IIRC it was a spinoff of a popular reality show “Real Tomcats of the US Navy”.  That show had a great tagline, “Often Imitated, Never Duplicated”.....

I have a parts question...

 

On this sprue...

 

https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/67796094_1311061912391966_1303350668269977600_o.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_oc=AQnC0JWV-VNJo_21t051XAgL7_79mFrMK5b9RydLe75Aji2EKZA8HQankS55m-ZepLg&_nc_ht=scontent-atl3-1.xx&oh=bf1d8f171c2559b5709035db1b783381&oe=5DDD17EB

 

What are the 4 half-rounded/curved/flat parts at the top of the sprue? I noticed there are 6 of these parts on the sprue, two more below the canopy frame.

 

I assume they are the hinges for the stabilizer, but why are there 6 of them? Perhaps for different positions (Up, Down, Level)? The curved part must go around the engine. Looking at these, I don't think the stabilizer is movable....

Very true. As I understand it though, that was only the South Coast units because crawfish were being sucked into the fragistator assembly vent tube while flying low level operations in the Gulf. Plus the Spurious signals were causing havoc to the oil drilling platforms. All other units could continue use of the dash 1. That is of course provided they upgraded the torbisactor to include the new teflon coated cornaflaterators. I'm sure you remember Capt. Huskers tragic accident when they failed to do so.

Don’t forget the defestrator mod, implemented after Goose hit the canopy when he ejected during a flat spin.

Oh my yes, terrible, just terrible. He was never the same after that accident. Couldn't look at a crayfish without breaking out into a cold sweat.

Yes, of course. Also the reason they changed from the Turbo Encabulator to the Retro Encabulator. The new cornaflaterators improved the modial interaction of magneto reluctance and capacitive diractance in the torbisactor.

Couldn't have said it better myself. 😀
