LF TrueDetails 48402 T-33 ejection seats


Recommended Posts

Dug through a bag of resin bits I bought at the 2004 Nats and found these. Are they the seats I'm after? Hard to tell without closeup photos online or a number on the stub.

Jeff, Those look similar to the True Details seats but the headrests on mine are different.   The are less pronounced.   And the pour stub has 402 cast into it.  Not 100% but I think those are the Black Box T-33 seats so they could work.   If not, I may have a spare set I can let you have.   PM me and we can work out details.

Black Box... That's it. Not True Details at all. I'm a moron. And thanks for the clarification Don. I'll run with these and go digging in the bag for more bits. 

 

Regards,

Jeff

Glad I could help Jeff.   Best of luck with your build.

It'll be a RT-33 from Hobbycraft in IIAF markings. Eventually...

I'm currently working on Hobbycrafts F-94B Starfire.   Both kits share a lot of the same parts.   And same fit issues.   Mine will be a NDak bird using Caracals decals for the early A/B Starfires.

Have fun scratch-building the electronics package that replaced the back seat.

The decals I ordered for this, still haven't arrived. So my plan may be scratched.
