  1. I'm hoping for that scale also. I think I have at least one of every manufacture for that aircraft. Tons of reference photos. Ron VanDerwarker
  2. Way back when, I purchased the B-52G, KC-135, EC-135, RC-135 and both series XB-70's. All have the AMT-ERTL imprints on the sprue. BTW, did this while I was stationed at RAF Lakenheath with the F-111's in the 70's My experimentation with basic Testors silver and mixing various colors to change the shading and hue. It's the Fujimi F-15A first production run. Bought I from a model show I attended at RAF Mildenhall late 70's. All the best on your build. Ron VanDerwarker
  3. Late as usual. Grabbing a seat in the back. I've both kits when they were shipped as AMT-ERTL many many years ago. Great start and progress. Ron VanDerwarker
  4. As memory serves, I've seen and had to deal with ECM pods attached to the inboard pylons as well. Generally with a MER rack load of what ever the bombload on the centerline. The one load I had not been given was the station 1 and 9 (outboard pylon) MER load. Ever load I was assigned had outboard fuel tanks. BTW headed your direction the end of May for a wedding, NE New York state. If time permits, I might drive to Burlington to see if the VT ANG has any of there aircraft on display. Ron VanDerwarker
  5. Erwin, Great finish. Especially along side your F-105. I can say I don't recall loading an F-4 with a gun pod and missiles. Loads I do recall are the SUU-23 centerline and what we call a flat two CBU-58's on the inboard station TERS with 2 AIM-7E's aft wells and ECM pods in the forward 2 missile wells. Far to many years ago. Talking June to December 1972. Took this just after finishing an upload. Udorn RTAFB Thailand Sept 1972 Again great finish. Ron VanDerwarker

    Likewise Dingodno1, welcome to the forum. Ron VanDerwarker
  7. What a wonderful looking car. Very impressed. Should they or some company come out with the actors at the time would quite well with this build. Outstanding representation. As far as a police car. AMT and MPC did one a very long time ago, but haven't looked lately. Ron VanDerwarker
  8. Okie doke. I'll post the link page for those. Thanks for the update. My humble apologies. Ron VanDerwarker
  9. Mike, I'll look for some additional websites that have those in a larger format. My other option would be to print those and scan in a larger dot per inch. Hopefully it won't distort the image. The original website for those were from the Basler website. These last ones came from the airliners website. I build for an individual in Albuquerque New Mexico. I've started one for the display in the airport with the US Forestry service. Not sure which one I want for myself. Enjoy, Ron VanDerwarker
  10. Mike, Found these and more on the net sometime ago. May help I am eventually going to begin a 1/48th scale conversion using a monogram kit. Not sure what the end produce will be: US Forestry service or some other scheme. Will watch with interest. Ron VanDerwarker
  11. Outstanding thus far Johnny. not matter the subject: IE wingy thing a whoop or a varoomy thin g. Fantastic work Ron VanDerwarker
  12. Thank you for the info. I'll look into that site also. I've made MHU-85/M trailers in 1/32nd scale because I cast wheel ans tire assembles from an old Monogram 2 1/2 ton army truck kit. Thanks again Ron VanDerwarker
  13. I did purchase both sets with the different tail series and am setting them off to the side for a nuclear load training diorama using an F-4D Phantom. In my 22 years with the USAF I've loaded the B-28's and B-61'a on B-52D's, B-43's, B-57's and B-61's on F-4D, and finally AGM-69's, B-61's, B-57's on the F/FB-111's. So I'm happy these weapons are starting to be reproduced for modelling. My other wish is for companies to reproduce all the munition handling trailers that were or are still in use. Ron VanDerwarker
  14. Entering late in the game here. Watching with interest of the progress and to see what problems arise in the build. I have a few of these kits and have a vested interest in build a pair each with and without the vertical stab fillet for the 20th FG 77th and 79th fighter squadrons from Kings Cliff WW2. The 77th fighter squadron named June Nite and the 79th fighter squadron named Happy Jacks Go Buggy. The latter I have a P-38 from the same wing and squadron. The build is looking great at this point and which ever co;or you decide will look outstanding Ron VanDerwarker
