  1. Hello, Here's my just finished 1/72 Italeri SF-5B. I was looking through the stash after my previous build, a grey Harrier GR.7, and thought this would be a nice colourful change. The kit does offer a Spanish version out of the box, but the decals didn't look right to me, so I ordered an aftermarket sheet from Series Españolas. These were much better, and worked very well. I painted the model with Vallejo Metal Color and some Tamiya black. Overall, it was a fun build, with only the canopy actuators being a bit fiddly. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.
  2. Yes, but not for long. And only on the USS Nimitz itself. Check here
  3. Carco flew shuttle flights for the US Atomic Energy Commission it seems. http://www.albcow.com/carco_airlines.html

    I would take those Hobbyboss colour suggestions with a big grain of salt. Apparently this one was painted in, from darkest to lightest colour, FS35237 (Mr. Color 337), FS36375 (Mr. Color 308) and FS36495 (Mr. Color 338). There's even a masking set for this scheme: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/aeromasks-am72-f516-f-5e-n-usa-vmft401-01red--1168668 No idea how good these sets are, though, I've never used them.
  5. Yup, LGTR Nice set of photos, btw.
  6. Hello all, Here's my last build of the year. It's the 2002 Revell rebox of the Hasegawa Harrier GR.7 in 1/72. As it turned out it's more like an AV-8B with a new nose part, which doesn't make it quite a GR.7. I added an aftermarket (undersized, sadly) seat from Pavla, Aires exhausts, and Air Graphics BOL rails. I also scratchbuilt the ECM/RWR/whatever things they are at the tail fairing. Painted with Hataka lacquers, which was a nice experiment, and used the kits decals. I decided to paint some bits in the older green colours after finding these nice photos of a base visit in 1997 http://www.hottail.nl/basevisits/1997/1117-Laarbruch/Index.html I hope you like it. Thanks for watching, merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year.
  7. And when comparing it to the CV-22 parts layout, it shows that the MV-22 has a sprue E, while the CV has a sprue J instead. Which has all the tiny bits and bobs that make the difference. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10242474/70/2
  8. It did, you can see it here: https://www.deviantart.com/fighterman35/art/YRF-4C-62-12200-8-Augus-1963-593216591 Also note that it still has the light installed for the refueling probe, and those camera windows are just for show.
  9. I just did a quick count on Scalemates, and it has been reboxed about 55 to 60 times. Granted, by far the most reboxes have been of the Japanese ones, but you can still build an early F-4E out of it
  10. In this case, the numbers before the iron cross tell which company built the jet, and the number after the cross is the individual aircraft in that range. The four digits starting with 7 are construction numbers. All explained here: Click And here: More Click
  11. They're on the website: http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p723_32-070-F-15E-Maximum-Effort-Eagles.html
  12. But what would an A-10 be without Mavericks? You can get resin ones from Northstar Models and Maestro Models, including launcers.
  13. This is...different: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/sp442/ A resin figure of B-25 noseart including decals of it for your model. It's an original idea, I'll give them that.
  14. True, but this was released way back in 2001, (doesn't time fly? ) so if you find one it's probably 2nd hand, so it might be just as expensive as a 2nd hand original Hasegawa release. Hasegawa did release the A-7D once with the sprues from one of their weapon sets included, which would be a nice deal if you can find it for a good price: https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/has/kit_has_09830.shtml
