    Trumpter A-10

    Well progress on this project has slowed to a crawl at the moment...I have been diagnosed with cancer and started chemo today...I will still be working when I can and reporting the progress as I make some headway... Texas

    trumpy A-10

    Glad to see someone else interrested in the big A-10 kit.....I am no expert but I have had one in the works for quite a while... The Trumpter kit is not a true A-10A and has some bumps and widgets that belong on the later variants....The best suggestion I can make is: Do Your Research on the bird your building.... I believe Verlinden has two resin sets for it and one is a cockpit set....True Detail still has the Black Box cockpit set listed. Not sure but I thank both are A-10A cockpits.... Here is some links to my build here on LSP.... I am down to the short strokes but still have a ways to go...If you have any questions fire away and I will try to answer them... http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=19804 http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.ph...l=Trumpter+A-10 http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=28191 Hope this gets you started in the right direction....

    Converting a F4J to F4B/N

    I have been thanking along those lines for several years and plan on giving it a try some day....Like you say the cockpit is a different story and have hoped someone would do one but no joy....I thank the big thing with the cockpit is the rear seaters left side wall and console.... Texas

    Converting a F4J to F4B/N

    Cam also had a conversion set way back when, but it wasn't considered very good at the time. I have a couple in the stash but havent looked at them in quite some time....Wasn't as hard to find as I thought....Here's some photos.... Texas

    Kinetic F-86

    It's not a easy kit to build but with some careful planing and construction it can be a fine looking model...I plan on doing one with Harolds cockpit to see if that helps.... Texas
  11. Looking Good.....Some more excellant work on your part.... Texas

    Trumpeter AV-8B Harrier II Plus

    Even though not accurate OOB it would still be a good looking model but then it's what the model builder wants....I am personally am waiting to see if someone steps in and makes a resin set to at least cover most of the problems.....We have a start with the Aries sets..... Texas

    Converting a F4J to F4B/N

    To bad Hasegawa doesn't do them like they did in 1/48 scale.....What a shocker that would be.... Texas
