    Italeri F35B

    Believe this might be 1/32 Turns out it is 1/48, and according to Italeri 100% new molds! Link to 2021 news letter
  2. Can't wait for this one - have Caracals excellent decals and just dying to try them out
  3. The closest you get is the PIDS pylons you find in the Kinetic F-16A/B kits unfortunately. They are quite good, but not the ultimate version as shown in the photo you link to. I've been dying for some myself actually, so definatly second that we need these
  4. Looking forward to the Zero - looking good, and the right scale
  5. Not much cutting these days if they are to expand the USAF by 60+ squadrons
  6. No, the 492FS and 494FS is still to operate the F-15E for the forseable future
  7. Hi Bosse How is the quinta cockpit placards on the Kinetic F-16? Working well? I have in all honesty given up on the Kinetic F-16, but might give it a go again if quinta works well?
  8. 493FS will convert to the F-35A in due course. They have some F-15's being through deep maintenance in the US these days, and there is speculation that they may not return to the unit, as part of the run-up to also the 493FS converting. But for now, only the 495FS, with first aircraft scheduled to arrive in December -21
  9. Bosse, Would you let us know how the Quinta parts play out? Considering buying it to backdate a Tamiya F-16 to an -A
  10. I too have a soft spot for line jets. CAG aircraft are nice, but too "flashy"
  11. Remember, an old(er) kit with new decals is still by definition "new" in the sense that those perticular decals haven't been released before from that manufacturer, even if the molds may be old(er). As for the F-35, it will come for sure - I have no doubt.
  12. @Groove Toad Twobobs, Authentic Decals, DXM, Galaxy and CAM decals all have made decals for F/A-18F's of VFA-102. This is a selection of VFA-102 decals as provided by Scale Mates
  13. I always follow anything Norwegian Will be watching this one
  14. Sort of missed this GB, will have to check what I might contribute
  15. Nice! Will be following this one - as for all RNoAF projects
  16. 94-0047 is available in decal form: D48157 F-16C Viper Demo Team "Venom” - Sklep internetowy (modelmaker.com.pl)
  17. Nice! Brings back memories - still have an urge to build one in 1/48
  18. Nice, would be good to see some more pics too please?
  19. Here's my finished F-16C block 52 from the 169FW 157FS South Carolina ANG in the Have Glas V scheme. Pilot from Reedoak - which is excellent BTW Decals by Caracal Decals Kit OOB except ordinance wich came from weapons kit. On the shelf - sorry about the lighting, I know it is a bit dark
  20. Well there's no shortage of up-to-date F-15E markings these days I have 3 in my stash, a C, J and one E. (The J will become a C too), still drewling for yet another E or I
  21. I thought from what I read that this chute should be possible to add onto any F-35A, so the requirement for strengthened spar is a little surprising? One would have though that they would implement this as standard, and hence quell any cost increases over the overall production of the F-35A's?
