  1. Was the WE.177 a possibility? Regards, Murph
  2. Does this kit include the option for open regular bomb bay doors? Given the amount of detail inside the bomb bay it would seem strange to have the Blue Steel modified doors and closed regular doors as the only options. Regards, Murph
  3. The pylon was used to carry practice bomb dispensers and gun pods, which added to the weight. Regards, Murph
  4. Thanks for the information. I'm surprised there isn't a pinned thread for the new kit. Regards, Murph
  5. Once, when I was doing a preflight on an F-15C in the Ghost Gray scheme with the full color TAC/wing/squadron badges (they are essentially large, thick decals with a semi-gloss finish) the light caught it just right and they stood out like a sore thumb on the dead matte paint scheme. I can remember thinking that if you built an accurate model of that it would get you laughed out of any modeling contest. Regards, Murph
  6. What type of engine exhausts does the kit have? Regards, Murph
  7. The Mk-5 is recognizable as a typical Phantom ejection seat: While the GRU-5 was a very early version of the seat that ended up in the F-14. Regards, Murph
  8. It was also used by the Brits and the Israelis. Regards, Murph
  9. As far as I know, you're going to have to scratch build it. You might find this useful. LINK Regards, Murph
  10. I've only seen the 1/72nd versions of them, not the 1/48th scale ones, and the parachute pack is the type carried by the F-8, not the F-4, plus the seat seemed oversize. I have no idea how that would translate to the 1/48th version of the seats though. I would agree with Ben, Hypersonic seats are the way to go here. Regards, Murph
  11. To add on to what ben mentioned, AFAIK, none of the kits cover the early model MB ejection seats that were in use at the time; that has to be a resin replacement. Regards, Murph
  12. You might find this article on "Old 66" at Tailhook Topics useful: LINK Regards, Murph
