  1. What a beautiful job you have done Piero !!! Love it !! -Scott
  2. You can get there with https://store.spruebrothers.com/ by skipping the normal landing page, which is also not working for me. -Scott
  3. These are listed and currently available at Sprue Brothers, but of course with overseas shipping, you will save some by procuring from Hannants http://store.spruebrothers.com/searchresults.asp?Search=Phantom+Phreaks+1%3A32&Submit=
  4. Here is mine ..... Tamiya F-4E ......Israeli -Scott
  5. Hi Jeff, Yes, they have the pistons moulded in each cylinder head and the piston rods from one side interface with the corresponding rods from the other side. Kind of cool but they will never be seen again once assembled. ZM provides a metal weight that is located in one of the fuselage fuel tanks located behind the cockpit to provide the weight to keep the nose down. -Scott
  6. Hey Jimbo, I have been interested in this aircraft since I went over to the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center and saw the one they are working on restoring. I think I'll venture back out there and grab some pics for reference and inspiration ! -Scott
  7. Hi Ray, I have the Daniel Zamarbide book on his Uhu build and will rely a lot on that for color guidelines, as well as the ZM instructions. From what I can see, the overall block is a black/silver mix with some components as black so I'll start with that. -Scott
  8. Just to show I am making some progress ...... I have both engines assembled ......some components can be removed for paint and I left off a couple of lines on each for painting them separately (call out for red and blue on those. No that I am looking at these .....I should of rotated them and got pictures from the other end ....will do that later and post them. Thanks for looking ! -Scott
  9. Been working a few hours on Engine #1 ..... a lot of parts, some cleanup required.... fit so far is good. I actually am enjoying working on a kit where I don't know much about the actual aircraft ......takes some of the worry out of the details and makes it a more care-free build (so far). Have a few more parts on this to go ....some components will remain off until painting is completed on them ....and have another engine to work on. Thanks for looking ! -Scott
  10. Hi, I just picked up the ZM Uhu (He 219) just before Christmas. I also got the HGW seatbelts and the Barracuda Wheels. I have the Eduard cockpit set on the way and will use at least some of those parts. I also have a set of Eaglecals decals coming for an all back scheme on the underside. I may change my mind on the markings as I go along. My first German aircraft and as such, I don't have any RLM colors on hand, so ...... have some MRP paints ordered for the RLM 02 and exterior colors. I think I'll start with assembling the engines this week. Starting the action with the obligatory 'box shot' and extras. Thanks for looking ! Scott
  11. Following this closely Ryan ! I have had the same kit lined up to start .....Zacto intakes, Aires wheel bays, Aires cockpit but have not pulled the trigger on it quite yet. Looking good ! Scott
  12. Thanks for responding to my question on the LANTIRN Pod qualification Brad. I figured it was a long shot but worth asking. I am contemplating a Night Owl F-4D ..... I found a set of decals on Ebay ....Warbird decals ....depends on their quality. Scott
  13. A question for the moderator.... What about a jet configured for 'night ops' with the addition of a LANTIRN Pod (AN/AAQ-13) ? Such as flown on an F-15E or F-16? Would that be In or Out ? Scott
  14. Hi Filippo, Avionix cockpit fits ......need some persuasion ...... and a lot of sanding .....the bottoms of the front and aft cockpit sections needed a lot of sanding .....the front cockpit floor ended up being pretty thin in the end. I also had to sand the nose gear floor pretty thin to give everything clearance to fit. Sides of the front and rear cockpits were actually not too bad ...... anded them back a bit and had to repeatedly check the fit and then more fit checks and adjustments for the sidewall consoles. Took a few hours of work but I am happy with the fit. -Scott
  15. Thank you Carl ......hope to get the main wings buttoned up and the weapons load started over the weekend !
  16. Got the lower wing attached and the nose .......fit of the lower wing looks great ....small gap on the underside to fill on each side where the left & right intakes meet the wing joint. That's it for now. Thanks for looking! -Scott
  17. Few more pics ...... seats are just temp dropped in
  18. You have to take into account the weight limit of the bomb rack installed in the pylon that you hang the MER/TER or munition from. If I remember correctly, the weight capacity of the MAU-12 bomb rack was 5,000 pounds ...... hang a MER, with six 500 pound bombs from it and you are looking at about 3,500 pounds, same as hanging three Mk-83 bombs from a MER.
  19. Thanks Mike ....... hope to get some bench time to work the remaining cockpit area and will probably start up on weapons and racks.
  20. Hi All, As an ex-USAF weapons loader, I just can't resist jumping in on this group build ...... load up the jet ! My subject is circa late 1970's ..... Israeli F-4E as seen in a photo in the AirDOC Israeli Phantoms book, Volume 1. Jet will be loaded as per the photo ..... 6 Mk-20 Rockeyes on a MER on the centerline station, each inboard pylon will have 3 CBU-58s on a TER. An AVG-23 Pave Spike pod in the left forward sparrow bay .....and 2 wing tanks. I made a start on this kit about a year ago before I got side-tracked by buying/selling/moving homes. Got as far as installing an Avionix cockpit, minus the front instrument panel and forward glare shield and the seats. I also installed a set of Rhino Model intakes and the base of an external refueling probe from Isracast. A few pics attached to get started.... Thanks for looking, Scott
  21. I know what your'e saying Mark ...... the "Aires Adventure"
