  1. Hasegawa boxed that one in 48 scale.
  2. Nice job and welcome to the world of unrestricted aviation, you picked the hardest way to be initiated to helos. btw, you may want to check you main rotor installation vs the one in the reference build thread.
  3. Courtesy flags. Also a tradition when sailors of a ship have to cross over another to go ashore.
  4. Well, I am still holding on to their Super Frelon and slowly gaining on the Coleoptére. I gave away the Viscount after realizing the wig profile would require the plane to fly inverted in order to direct lift up! I bet you are going to be able to make a Tu-154 or a Trident from this and nobody would be the wiser.
  5. Nice job! I always believed that British Corsairs had the wingtips trimmed to fit in the lower ceiling ob FAA's carriers.
  6. No wing nacelles lockers, typical European airframes. It's showing the Raisbeck mod, so the should have offered the nacelles lockers.
  7. Well, their 1/72 PBM was a pretty nice kit and they had announced an Olympic to join their Titanic in 1/350.
  8. The first slats were fixed in design and pioneered by the Israelis. One of the first Phantom to wear them was the Sharkmouth Phantom, notice the lack of actuator fairings as these were fixed experimental slats. Slatted sharkmouthed Phantom. Operation Nickel Grass
  9. I believe TISEO came only on those F-4Es transferred in flight directly from USAF squadrons in Germany and Spain, and those retained (at least initially) the SEA camo pattern. Those were all hard wing E models.
  10. Also, when the wings started getting the boundary layer blowing system the inner section of the flaps were no longer operative check photos of F-4Bs versus F-4Js and F-4Ns on the catapult. The only NAVY Phantoms with slatted wings were the F-4S version. This only applied to NAVY Phantoms.
  11. The Frecce Tricolori are on the list to replace the MB-339 with the M345. Matter of fact a demo plane already flew in that color scheme... The Frecce Tricolori are on the list to replace the MB-339 with the M345. Matter of fact a demo plane already flew in that color scheme...
