    Zoukei Mura Ki-45 up for preorder at SB

    It was on the shelf at the Hobbytown here in Kennesaw, GA yesterday.

    Revell super Hornet

    That was never the case. It has always been the E first, then the F, then the EA-18G. In what amount of time was unknown. My hope is they actually fixed the spine, but the instructions and build up are from the original test shot that was shown. I guess we'll know for certain when the kit is actually released.

    F/A-18A Desert Storm

    No, they didn't. I was at Sheik Isa during Desert Storm with MALS-11 Ordnance and spent several hours on the flight line. Not all aircrew had, or wore camouflaged covers on their helmets, nor was it a required item.

    Academy F/A-18 kit Landing gear

    One of the local modelers here built one several years ago and hasn't had an issue with the kit gear.

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    Nice work, I'll definitely be on the look out for the completed turret and overall conversion. Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas!

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    Local Hobbytown had three on the shelf a few days ago. Stopped in yesterday to kill some time and all three were gone. Fortunately for me, I fall in the "TLAR (that looks about right)" category when it comes to the B-24. Would love to do a PB4Y-1 of either VMD-154 or VMD-254. It won't be perfect or 100% accurate, but it will look cool as s#!t when it's done!
  7. Don't waste you're money on the RB set. They're way too short. The Master Model barrels are almost dead on accurate.
  8. I was fortunate to have worked with Academy on the 1/32 F/A-18C/D, the 1/32 F-16C and the 1/48 CH-53E and CH-46E. I've reached out to my POC and received a response. Will do my absolute best to push the Yankee and a new Whiskey.
  9. The Zulu fully entered service after I retired, so my hands on knowledge is nil. However, I have several technical publications on the air frame and it stacks up pretty well. In addition, the link was shared on a Facebook group that comprises of Marines within the skid community. So far, it has received high praise from several Marines that work on it. Dave

    1:18 Hobbyboss Av-8B Harrier2

    A correction set would just be a new kit! This kit simply falls into the "it looks the part and is cool to have" category.

    ALERT! Anyone heard from or about Paul Fisher?

    I would sincerely hope those that would be "due" a refund would flat out refuse it. While I can only speak for myself and don't have an outstanding order, there is no way in hell I would take, or want my money back. My heart goes out to all those affected!
  14. Gentlemen, While I have a relatively long list of subjects I either want to cover, or have already drawn decal art for, I'd love to hear what aircraft you'd like to see covered. In addition to aircraft, provide suggestions on squadrons and/or specific aircraft. Of the three 1/32 sheets I've released to date, two sold out pretty quickly and the third moved enough to recoup the print costs (which I consider a successful sheet). The fourth and fifth sheets (F/A-18D's and AV-8B II Plus respectively) are shaping out to be good movers as well based on the pre-order numbers. On my short list are sheets covering the RF-4B, F-8C/D/K/E, A-1 variants, A-6E Intruders and more AV-8B Harriers. Let me know what you'd like to see and we'll go from there.

    A few changes have been made to the line up. This is solid and will not change again.
