  1. IIRC, the F-35's lift fan is not a separate engine, but powered via a PTO off of the main engine. Being sucked down the lift fan shouldn't affect it much. Hell, they shoot supermarket turkeys out of cannons to see the effect it has on high-bypass turbofans, I can't imagine a tiny bird having much effect. Then again, I remember a Pelican bringing down a B-1 in Colorado way back when.
  2. Wonderful. My dad's last trip before he passed was to NZ, he got to sail on an America's Cup sailboat while there. He was over the moon.
  3. Very nice. Reminds me of the Britannia .
  4. The "Gilbert XF-120" from "Towards The Unknown".
  5. Very nice. How did you avoid webbing with such a deep draw?
  6. I think they are chasing the "But I know it's there!" crowd, like AMT did with their KC-135 kits.
  7. In other words, the Area Rule principle, also seen on the F-105 and F-102 (the first plane to get the treatment after the straight-fuselage YF-102 couldn't break mach 1).
  8. IIRC, the Ace kit parts were poor knock-offs of the Hasegawa kits. The Pat's arrangement was changed on the spruces, and various knobs and switches in the cockpit were moved around. Think of the Zhengfudu knockoffs of Academy 'Varks, same thing.

    Do 17

    Tigger does a 1/32 217.

    Do 17

    I'd be happy if the hit the enlarge button on the old Monogram Do-17. I don't know how accurate it is, but looks the part.
  11. Cold War Jets for me. Edit: I can't read, apparently. I thought the choices were for another year-long build. Trainer aircraft for the final slot works for me.
  12. Ok, this dummy has a question- Why lock them down in the first place?
  13. As crazy as it sounds, doing that in Colorado is illegal.
  14. IIRC, the Swedish plane was a bit longer, too.
  15. I didn't read the ad, but, if it contained words like 'rare', 'out of production', 'only one left', that people tend not to do their due diligence for fear if missing out. At least you now have a viable, profitable route for any overstock. Just be sure to include those magic words.
  16. Make heads explode with a 335 painted on Lozenge.
  17. Frank is a magician.
  18. That question depends on how big a cut Mrs. Yeager wants.
  19. While I tend to agree with you on this, I can't help but compare it to Glacier Girl, which was even worse off, and yet restored.
  20. Love it! I'll eventually get one, but still hoping that you'll do a Yak-28.
  21. If you can get someone to send you the nose cone and gear doors, it should a relatively easy cut and shut. Now as far as cockpit differences.....
  22. Amen. As the saying goes, " if you can't say something nice about someone......." TC is, um.... uh..... erm...
  23. Harry Woodman literally wrote the book on WWI aircraft scratchbuilding.
