    Scratch 1 billion dollars worth of F22

    Expecting a Cat 1 or 2 storm is great, but just like the people who build houses next to the water, it’s the Gulf coast. The Gulf coast gets hurricanes. Strong ones. Frequently. It’s never, ever a surprise when a major storm makes landfall, although from what I’ve read, you’d think it was a once in a millennium event. It simply isn’t. And there is a zero percent chance the F-22s will be replaced. The tooling for producing them has been destroyed. There will never be another new F-22 built. What I want to know is why a dozen F-22s (15% of all of them in service) were out of service.

    MiG-25RBT ICM 1:48

    Nice!! I have four different variants sitting here in the pile!

    Phantom help please

    I believe the UK birds had all the latest airframe mods added at North Island before delivery, including the big belly strap. They were essentially F-4S's without the slats.

    New, clean topic: HB B-24 Test Shot Photos

    As long as what grabs your fancy is that precise airframe configuration (out of the dozens and dozens just in the B-24J family alone)... No indication of an alternative parts for various configurations. No skin off my nose anyway. There is a zero percent chance I'm ever going to do that much natural metal.

    1:32 Consolidated PB4Y-2 Privateer

    My pleasure. It's a treat to live so close to Pima

    1:32 Consolidated PB4Y-2 Privateer

    Here are 126 photos of the Pima PB4Y-2 I took yesterday. It's restored cosmetically, but not necessarily representative of a wartime bird in detail. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/134quj8kuefl2zk/AACuqavBqaHYNyEKPso-XqDla?dl=0
  7. It's not on Facebook, so it doesn't go in the previous thread, which was getting messy... I have to say, I'm not terrifically impressed. The oil cooler molded into the lower surface of the wing - seriously? Neat rows of divots along the edge of every panel - seriously? Rubber tires? Split nose turret clear parts? http://filscalemodels.ph/testshots/hobbyboss32ndliberator/hobbyboss32ndliberator.html
  8. Need some assistance with photography on the P-40B at Everett... Let me know if you can help, and I can make it worth your while! Tks! J

    HKM 1/32 Lancaster Kit review

    I'm not seeing all these marshmallow soft edges you're on about. Also, comparing the Revell released in 1970 to the Tamiya kit released within the past decade is ridiculous.

    HKM 1/32 Lancaster Kit review

    As I posted elsewhere, per Neil Yan, it has nothing to do with the actual tooling, it has to do with the computing power required to create it in the CAD software and the CNC milling machine. WnW has essentially unlimited money to work with for things like that. Other companies don't. That may change, but right now that's the reason. HKM tried it, but quickly overloaded their computers with data.

    Okay Mike. You just keep believing that. As long as you feel secure, you are secure, right?

    Any 1/72 Helicopter Kit Experts Out There?

    The Zvezda Mi-24s are definitely the best available. Some of their older kits are iffy, but their recent stuff is some of the best in the world. They have their own "style" - extremely petite engraved panel lines (almost too petite), and great detail. Not sure about the other helos you mentioned.

    The rain has come!!!

    We've been getting MUCH needed rain here in Arizona as well. They're calling for an above average winter rain season, so fingers crossed. We're still in a 20+ year drought cycle, so it would take a lot of rain to get us back to something like "normal", but I'm pretty sure drought is our new normal. I'm constantly amazed that we still feel free to water golf courses and water hungry crops like cotton and pecans here in southeast Arizona, while the Colorado River no longer flows to the sea.

    Wingnut Wings Photo - Clues?

    I just can’t figure the seeming reluctance to do what seems utterly obvious to any WWI fan, such as Spads and Nieuports.
