  1. Well, lets get our terms right.......Wing tip nav lights are on all aircraft and boats/ships/etc.(onStarboard, Red Port).....The 3 underwing lights on the Starboard wing are to signal the ground troops, IIRC.......The lights on Red Dog (photo above) are a very late war add...And there is little written info on this set of lights....Do not know if they were a factory add or a field add ( or both).........However they were the equivalent of todays "slime lights" onmost military aircraft...........Basicallyjust to let pilots know where their wingman/other formation aircraft are.....

  3. I'm sorry but my build on LSP is terminated...............................
  4. Yes, it's in the "measuring and marking" section....then measuring......then page 2............there are 2 sizes a 5" and a 2 1/2".....I got the 2 1/2" as most of my work is small................Unfortunately that is the smallest size offered................ Does a pretty neat job.............
  5. BTW........Here's the center finder I ordered from Micro Mark.............the next pic shows 2 smaller scratchbuilt versions
  6. OK finally figured out how to (or at least method #1) to make the center section of mail wheel.........Next step is to build up the center "hump"....and I'm going to use Apoxie Sculpt....then try to impress the 18 little vent holes around the center cap..............Will use resin "nut & bolt's" to duplicate the outer ring of "dots" which are nuts & bolts.......... Pictured here......
  7. Waiting for the mail....Ordered some Micro Mark glue and one of them center finder tools........... Finding figuring out how to scratch-build something harder that the actual process....... Think I'm going to proceed tonight with the body........
  8. Sorry for not posting.......Got side tracked for a few days but largely been trying to figure out how to accomplish scratch-built items......I'll post soon!....................
  9. OK, Just got a call from Jeff.............Just a mixup on CC information update.......should be up and running soon
  10. FYI.......Tried to bring up "Combat Models" web site, but what I get is a domain name co page (I think)......................Anyone know whats going on????????????????????????????
  11. This is what I'm shootin' for......This is the outer hub/wheel center section. from a Counter Invader 1/48 aftermarket kit (Cutting Edge IIRC) ..............P.S......Counter Invader wheels were different than the old Invader models..........Main wheels and brakes were fron a C-135/KC-135 ...........Not sure where the nose wheel came from..................
  12. As promised here is a pic of the main wheel brakes redo.......
  13. Thanks.........Actually I redid the brakes .....they just didn't look right to me...............Will post new pics in a day or 2............
