    1/32 Trumpeter Eurofighter Exhaust

    Thanks guys for you input. Chek, the RAF Typhoon I want to do is a FGR4. Xtradecal X32048 has a colorful one on it. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X32048 Dan
  2. greetings all. As the title says I am thinking of buying a Trumpeter Eurofighter. Looking at probably doing a Great Britain one. I was looking online and ran across Aires has two sets offered. 2118 is a late exhaust set and 2119 is a early exhaust set. I have been all over the internet and can't find what the difference is between them. The pictures of the sets on SB I can't tell what is the difference. Can someone help me with a answer to my question. Dan
  3. Chuck, The canopy looks outstanding. Thanks for the Photography Tutorial. Like all your builds it is a never ending learning experience from you. Taking lots of notes on the cockpit and the canopy since I have this in the pile. All thou the tiger stripe on is really sharp looking, I vote for the black MiG-28. Chuck have you had a chance to look at the exhaust on this thing? Looking for your magic here. Dan
  4. Chuck, Just like all your builds they are excellent and it is great to see you do your magic on them and to learn from you. Will be following along with this one. I can't believe that the Black Box resin cockpit fits as will as it does. I am surprised none of the after market companies haven't made a cockpit yet for the Kitty Hawk F-5E/F. Dan

    JASDF F-4EJ Kai

    Thanks for following along. I'm kind of torn between doing the two tone blue Kai phantom and the pre 50th. anniversary one. Sorta leaning towards the pre 50th. anniversary one. Haven't seen very many of the zotz pre 50th. anniversary one's built. Mighty colorful markings. Dan

    Here is my entry into the group build. Still rounding up the last of the after market parts I need.

    Make the others jealous

    did my own birthday shopping and picked these up for myself since birthday is in a few days. Not 1/32 but should be a interesting build.

    found these under the tree. Just got to find a few more after market items for one of the F-4EJ's for the multi-engine group build.

  11. GDW, the dry transfers you refer to they came out with the first release from Wolf Pack. They were included with the resin conversion kit #WP32010
  12. Will be definitely ordering a couple sets of these decals. Has anyone heard from Wolf Pack on releasing their F-4EJ Kai conversion set again? Dan

    Rules of the Road

    I will be in with something. Since this goes for a year I should be able finish one. Have lots of two jet engine models to choose from in the stash. Got less than a month to decide and to make sure I have all the after market items I need for it. Have one I would love to do but the paint scheme is a night mare so will have to decide on one that is a little less colorful but still colorful and there is 1/32 scale decals for it. Dan

    Phantom of Keflavik, Iceland

    Thank you Tony for your response. Hopefully you can find a printer that will do a short run. Will definitely get at least two sets.
  15. Fellow modellers,. I know a 1/48 scale sheet was done I have been searching this afternoon but haven't found them offered in 1/32. Would like to do a F-4 Phantom from the 57th. FIS. This is a up coming winter project or one for the up coming 20th. Anniversary group build. Dan
