  1. When the 104s were repainted in SEA camo (1967 Udorn)....did the struts and and gear bay get over sprayed or did they remain silver/ NM? Thanks Rob Colvin
  2. Did anyone ever do an early va 35 bird? Right around 67 the big panther was painted on the tail....the kit version is awful. Thanks
  3. Is there a corrected windscreen out there for the trumpeter 105s? I know ce did one way back but that part is no where to be found. Thanks
  4. Off hand does anyone know if the F-104s out of Udorn in 1967 performed any missions with 2x wingtip tanks and 2x underwing tanks? My thoughts were escort of some type (B-52s)? Thanks
  5. I know the italeri kit is better. I have this hasegawa 104 my father started before he passed a few years ago. I decided to finish her up......add part, add a seat, fix this, sand that.....see where this going lol. Here is my issue I have engraved the majority of the kit and now that I am down to the end I cannot get the panels mid fuselage near the spine to look correct. Is there a template for the panels? Open to ideas. Thanks
  6. Adc birds... did the adc grey paint extend down the intakes like the sea wrap and euro-1 wrap aircraft? Thanks
  7. Found the orig thread....shortened the fuselage. Now is there any brass for the guns? Thanks all!
  8. I was wondering.....has anyone done brass barrels for the 37s, wooden prop, brass tail mg, or anything else.....wheel spats, wheels etc? Fuselage.....to long? What is the final ruling? I know compared to the airfix kit it is longer. The airfix kit is a B model and do we know for sure that airfix kit is not to short? Thanks
  9. Perhaps i missed it.....but it seems the rear gunners fire control is missing. Not to mention. The rear "glass" appears to be more like a water bomber/ A-26k.
  10. A cylinder short.......could explain the small looking engine cowl.
  11. I know it has issues.....My question is does the Revell He-219 "need" the brass gear? I know the kit requires a lot of nose weight? Do the brass gear fit? Thanks Rob
  12. While I agree with the most of the comments here the "smaller" jet aircraft would be pretty slick in 24th. They would probably sale. I would certainly buy one, however if you are going to dream...... F-4, F-8, F-100, F-104, F-101, F-106, F-102....and Yes a 105 ( i know they would be huge) but hey it cant be worse than the wing span of the 32nd Lancaster or Liberator right? F-15, F-16, F-14, F-18......The 16, 14 and 18 were produced in 1/18th ......so at least 24th would be smaller LOL. Rob
  13. I was looking to get a few parts from Zactoman, I reached out through the zacto website email to ask about availability. I have not recieved a response...is everything ok there? 2nd GFactor brass landing gear for an Academy F-18.....where can you find them? I have looked all over. Thanks
  14. Makes u wonder, how do u get the b fuselage correct in length and the d/g wrong?
