    F15J vs F15C kit differences

    Hi Guys, I have a set of decals coming to do the Oregon ANG 75th Anniversary paint scheme, but my Tamiya F15C kits are buried in a storage locker. I know where I can pick up a Tamiya F15J kit for a reasonable price. Is there much difference in what is included in the kit box that would prevent me from using the J kit in place of a C kit? Ted

    PR Mk XI

    Thanks for the camera port information Michael. Except for choosing a colour for the ports that should make things a little easier in that area. I'm hoping to get some more done on the kit and post some pictures tomorrow. Talk to you later, Ted

    PR Mk XI

    Perfect! Thanks Andy! That answers any questions that I had. Nice work too! So I just have to fill in the hole behind the belly camera ports which I had opened up before I purchased the conversion. Talk to you soon, Ted

    PR Mk XI

    Thanks Andy, Yes, I think that I will be following the advice of Carl and you by just using the parts that Tamiya has for the wings. Hope to get some interior stuff done in the next couple of days so that I can post some progress. Would like to find a couple of cockpit shots to see where the piece for the gun sight replacement sits. I'm not sure from looking at the photo in the conversion instructions exactly what they want you to do. Talk to you soon, Ted

    Another shot. Not much done yet. Took the pictures more to practice using Imgur and posting.

    Here's a shot with all of the conversion parts spread out and the bit of work that I have done on the Mk VIII being converted.

    Thanks Paul, I'm hoping for it to be fun. I've had the conversion for a while and this seemed like the perfect place to start it! Thanks for the heads up Carl, I'll keep your advice in mind when I get to those spots. Talk to you later, Ted

    PR Mk XI

    I'm using a Tamiya Spitfire Mk VII kit with the Alley Cat conversion. If I can get the grey codes, I'd like to do an aircraft flown by F/L Larry Seath who flew over the Channel on D-Day with 400 Squadron. Ted

    Hopefully this works.

    PR Mk XI

    Hi Guys, I'd like to add a PR Mk XI Spitfire to the build. I'll even add a picture once I get sorted out how to do that again...lol Ted Barrett

    Memphis Belle Decals

    Yes, that is one of the great things about this hobby. You can enjoy reminiscing about the older days and can actually get copies of many of the old kits if you want to do a "nostalgia" build. I have to finish off an Italeri F-35 before I get going on the B-17, but will start it as soon as I can. In the meantime I'll order the Zotz decals. Talk to you soon David, Ted

    Memphis Belle Decals

    Thanks for the information David. I think that I will be ordering the Zotz decals and then with research online I should be able to get to work on the kit. I've always had a soft spot for the Memphis Belle ever since getting the old Revell (new back then) 1/72 kit back in '67 for Christmas. It and a Revell Oscar were opened on Christmas day and finished (no paint and if memory serves me right no decals) by the end of boxing day. Almost broke my neck running up and down the stairs "flying" them...lol Talk to you soon, Ted

    Memphis Belle Decals

    Thanks D, I noticed that Zotz makes a set of decals that includes the Memphis Belle. Do you know whether they would be worthwhile purchasing or just use the HK decals? Ted

    Memphis Belle Decals

    Hi Guys, I have the HK B-17E/F kit and I wanted to do the Memphis Belle version. I noticed that they give you blue and red decals for the girl and wheel covers. Is this caused by a lack of certainty is the colour of the markings? Ted

    F4B4 Test Posting

    Hi Tom, I believe the blue fuselage is what I've seen, which includes a restored aircraft that was painted up in the Thunderbirds colours and markings in the 70's, but I don't know for sure whether the olive coloured aircraft existed or not. Something to check into though. I know that I'll be doing the blue one when I get to the kit. Talk to you later, Ted
