  1. Ben, sad to hear about the plight of the MH-53 but very excited to to see this project! Do you ever do normal :-)? Cheers, Marcel
  2. Thx for the quick review! I ordered some F-35 wheels from Reskit and they look fantastic. Reskit also offer many little things I have been looking for for years, eg canted VERs. Customer service is also great. I ordered a Mirage exhaust and unfortunately the lost here returned it before I had a chance to pick it up. Reskit have just resent the package without charging me for the additional postage. Cheers, Marcel
  3. Thx Dave, yeah, I evidently landed on the discontinued page in my search, too bad. Cheers, Marcel
  4. Hi guys, I noticed this kit is shown on the U.S. Tamiya site. Has ist always been there or is this an indication that it will be released again? Thanks, Marcel
  5. Big thanks guys, this has been very helpful and informative. I will go with the regular fuses. Any relevant close ups of the wiring? I can never make it out on pics and when done on models it often seems heavy-handed. Cheers, Marcel
  6. Looks like you have things covered. Pay close attention to the wheels, Block 15 OCU aircraft have the Block 30/32 wheels you get with the Thunderbirds kit. Cheers, Marcel
  7. Nice! The A has two hinge fingers instead of three on that inside hinge. What will you do about the tail? Pity you are in such a rush, KASL produces a great PW exhaust and also A tail (which you would likely need to modify depending on the version you are building). Cheers, Marcel
  8. Thx Jari, should have known that I could count on you with that kind of insight! Which is a exactly what I was looking for. Cheers, Marcel
  9. Excellent choice for your Viper. Still want to do that one some day. Cheers, Marcel
  10. Hi guys, my next project is likely to be a Desert Storm A-6E of VA-65 (although a MiG-29C is also beckoning). I will be loading this bomber up heavily, the outside pylons will have 12 Mk7’s on MER’s. I am thinking of adding another 10 Mk82’s on the inside pylons, which would be in line with a loadout stated on desert storm.eu. I have no knowledge of the fuses used, looks like the conventional types used for decades before were often on, I would prefer to use those kinda conical ones and ideally no fuse wires either. Thanks for any intel. Cheers, Marcel
  11. Unbelievable! Looks entirely real! Marcel
  12. Looking very good and wow, huge work you've put in there already! Marcel

    ACMI pod

    Hello Danny, The pods are significantly longer than Aim-9's, not sure of the exact length but check some pics, eg. of the NSAWC F-16's, you can see how much more they extend to the rear of the wingtip. They are are the same diameter as an Aim-9, so you can use 4mm styrene rod as a start, the rest of the scratch building should be easy. Cheers, Marcel
