  1. The answer is a few posts back.... There have been going issues with the OBOGS systems in every jet that has them. F-22, F-18, Harrier, T-45 I'm sure others. Couple of F-22 guys took themselves of flight status and made the problems public. But not strike....that doesn't happen n the military. Flying is voluntary though doing that is career ender and you still owe time; so you could be the basket ball inflater at the gym for a few years until your commitment is up. Always better not to hold on too tight and lose the edge.

    Digital makes the most sense. As soon a I can find the best way to hang this stuff for download I will do so, wether that be my website or elsewhere. Would be fun to see a few more folks do this stuff. It’s a pretty easy conversion....not really a need for a kit. I’ll update this space, the ready for inspection, and maybe a new thread to get the word out when the stuff is available. Cheers, Timmy!
  3. Well Ray.... Seeing as how you're the guy who thought he saw a decal typo....I thought you might get the name. and.... Yes you did! Very well done! Good game until your helmet scratches the canopy...people get mad. Another good one is to get the stud to look down in the cockpit to change a radio or find a CB, then make a defending turn away from their head, get them to look up quickly...and viola complete and total barf-a-rama! Timmy!

    If there are no photos...it didn't happen!
  10. You are very welcome. Also notice the lights on either side of the hose housing. There are three. Red = No contact/Disconnect, Amber = Cleared to contact/No fuel flow and Green Fuel Flow.
  11. The hose has two sets of stripes. Referenced from the pod to the basket, there are two fat stripes that define the fuel flow range. The receiver has to plug the basket then push the hose in until the first stripe is inside the pod, fuel will then flow. If the second stripe get pushed in too, the fuel will stop. When the receiver disconnects, the first white stripe becomes visible, the fuel shuts off and the basket (in theory) pops off the probe. As for the second set of stripes yes 10 feet is probably right, could be 5 feet. It was definanately 10 on a KC-130. Either 3.75 inches or 1.875 inches apart in 1/32nd scale, what ever looks right. Hope that helps! Lovely work! AR dioramas are one of my faves!! Timmy!
