  1. I would be in for one of the life rafts also - would also like to see is a detailed cowl so we could open the engine up for detailing. Jerry
  2. Dave, Two questions sir - will these be available at Nats next week? I need at least 3 or 4 of them. Secondly, did you ever get the F-8 Data Sheets or the Bomb/Ordnance sheets complete in 1/32? Would also like to pick up a few of those. Jerry
  3. I would be in for one without any consideration. If nothing else a conversion kit for the Kitty Hawk bird in 1/48. Have wanted to build one for years. Jerry
  4. I would like to second the request - I am waiting for the Navy version and check the site daily more times that I am willing to admit in writing - I would just like to know any info on differences in the Navy bird in the way of parts and pieces or anything you would be willing to tell us. I'm old enough that I should be able to just sit back and wait for the release but I'm not having much luck with that strategy. Jerry
  5. Is anyone aware why Alan has not posted anything on this thread since April? Wondering if he is alright or are there other problems. Jerry
  6. I'll certainly second Bill's question - really hoping Paul can give us a few more F-8 parts and pieces.
  7. Paul - I know you mentioned the Susie won't be wild about packing both an AF and Navy kit in the same package - but if that is what we are going to get at what point do you think the Navy bird will be available and if we are going to want that specific double configuration should we wait to place the order rather than ordering now? Thanks so much for such a beautiful product. Jerry
  8. Wheels, new props just ordered from Sprue this morning. Also grabbed a set of Eli's new Mig Killer Crusaders at the same time.
  9. Harold Do you any other parts and pieces that we should consider when building Paul's Navy conversion combined with the Trumpeter AD-4. If ordering from Sprue would like to get everything in one batch to save shipping. Jerry
  10. I did 3 VN tours on USS Ticonderoga CVA-14 so got to see them close up and personal - came up with the idea of doing a representative aircraft of each squadron that was on one of our cruises. Because of space was going to do 1/48, but can't find good kits of some of the birds - was already working on 2 of the Trumpeter F-8s when Paul announced the RF-8 so had to add one to the stable - then to make matters worse he came out with the Spad and I have to have one anyway so why not in 1/32. Right now I'm just hoping someone doesn't do an A3 Skywarrior in 1/32 because I am currently working on 2 of them in 1/48. For the Spad, at Paul's advice for the Navy bird I am doing I got the blue AD-4 casting from Trumpeter as the starting point - at Nats I picked up all the Eduard PE for the A-1 except the interior as it will of course be completely different. Also picked up the SAC metal landing gear but still want to look at the struts ZM is selling also - would like to completely detail the engine so going to also watch what is out there once we get the actual conversion from Paul - if there are parts still needed Harold at AMS has some bits and pieces that would come in handy. Also picked up a set of the Master 20mm barrels with the flash hiders and I am going to do some type of really varied load-out. I'm doing all of our birds with folded wings to save space and give that carrier looks. Really planning to put each on a flight deck base with full tie down chains and all the extras. If someone thinks of something out there I overlooked would be really interested in comments. Jerry
  11. I second that little display of extreme frustration - was just down in the shop looking at the Eduard set, the Trumpeter plane, a couple reference books - you know, every single part needed except the conversion set - wow, glad I got that out of my system. Guess I'll go back down to the shop now and work on my RF-8. Jerry
  12. Paul, Are there any thoughts yet on what the release date will be? Jerry
  13. Paul Any chance of some updated photos? Can't stand the wait for this one. Jerry
  14. Would absolutely agree with Chuck - I have been dealing with Branden for several years and bought stuff from him at Nats this year - top notch quality and customer service. On another note just happened to be trolling sites looking for an AD-4 and came on one on Amazon. It said only one left and listed the price as $60.51 with free prime shipping - jumped on that real quick and it will deliver Wednesday - Jerry
  15. Nationals was fantastic and I managed to get a bunch of show specials and treasures for the stash - as for a 1/32 Trumpeter AD-4 - not so much. While there were amazing deals on Trumpeter aircraft there, which got even better on Saturday when most of the dealers dropped prices by 50% there was only one AD-4 at the entire show and the fellow was very proud of it to the tune of $139. That high price and it wasn't even a new kit so you couldn't exactly tell if everything was there. It should be noted that there were probably 100s of large Trumpeter planes of all models that were in the $50 range. I went over to FreeTime Hobby and Brandan would take orders for one that would ship the next day for $81 plus $10 shipping, so I guess I will go that way. Very disappointing for the one big kit that I was looking for, but like I said Nats was great. Jerry
