  1. Time for something else. I pulled out the Tamiya kit which had been on the alley for many years and got started with it. I have some aftermarket, the Aires cockpit and seamless intakes and burner cans but I do not know who made them, a great book for references and I have some MK82 Snake Eyes coming from Eduard.

  2. This build was for our local clubs Marine tribute in honor of past club President, avid modeler, and Marine Ed Kinney. I wanted to do a Desert Storm Hornet from the Hasegawa F-18 kit I had. Going through all the options I decided on a stinger from VMFA-451 because it received a purple heart for damage incurred from a SAM missile to the sidewinder station. The Warlords frlew out of Shaikh Isa AB in Bahrain. The Warlords were also the first Marine unit to attack Iraqi locations in Desert Storm so there was alot of history here to model. This has been my most involved build, which ended up t
  3. I had some old slides scanned and imported in Lightroom. There were some pics from the early 1980s, among them this of an 1:48 A-4M.

It didn't survive moving house a couple of times. So it's good, that some of the slides were still in good shape. Hope you like it. Cheers Rainer

A couple more on the way including the Schiffer book Crusader! Also have the Ginter series in pdf. I've really been wanting to do these markings for quite awhile- seems like a good opportunity now to finally get around to it. VMF-312 was at Da Nang for about 6 weeks, from Dec '65 to Jan '66 for 718 sorties. Right now, looks like I'll be doing the wings straight, up, flaps and slats down, refueling probe out, brake
  5. I recently rediscovered Hasegawa's OA-4M in the attic. It seems that the rear IP is that of a TA-4J while I would assume that the rear cockpit would resemble the IP of an A-4M. Rear cockpit photo of a TA-4J from www.a4skyhawk.org Can anyone help me with pics on the rear OA-4M cockpit? Thanks in advance! Erik B.
