    Anytime, Mate!

    Thank you! You did notice, that the original post is 9½ years old right?
  2. Dan, you need to look here for Israeli stuff. There's a lot of decals for modern Israeli aircraft, as well as some stuff for the older types. They've also made a Meteor sheet with markings for Israeli, Syrian and Egyptian planes, as well as a sheet with various Middle-Eastern F-5s. The books available there are some of the best references for Israeli stuff that there is. I currently have about 15 of the listed titles, with hopes of acquiring more. So far, their books about the Ayit and Netz have eluded me though and there's others I haven't gotten around to ordering yet. The references they us
  3. Not sure, but I think the wings are different too, not just the nose. Sorry I can't help more'n that
  4. Platz do/did some I think.
  5. You can find them cheaper'n Hannants if you shop around a bit
  6. Here. Oh, GBU-12s here
  7. I don't know the colours, but I do know the aircraft I'm glad I got to see a Harrier display before you retired them
  8. AMRAAM is FS36375 with white nose and natural metal (!) dark titanium fins. ASRAAM is (almost certainly) BS627 Light Aircraft Grey
  9. The C-130J came long after the C-130K tho'
  10. From reading a book about the Tornado, only one. I've seen a couple of pictures too.
  11. Yup, I remember it well. I'll do an E tho', same colour
  12. Ok, I'll see if I can get something done this time. RDAF Phantom maybe Deutsche Post C-17?
  13. In 72nd there isn't a proper Longbow available. Those that are available are either As with a radar or the prototype. Both need a lot of work to become a D. For A-models, Hasegawa is probably best, but Academy isn't far behind - and Acad's Hellfire-launchers look better'n Hase's
  14. From Airliners.net From left to right, Cerberus, tank, empty, captive HARM, no pylon, empty, captive AIM-9, tank, BOZ

    Tamiya 1/72

    Many (more than half, I think) of Tamiyas 1/72 kits are reboxed Italeris. If you look here, the only jet/helo kits that are Tamiyas own are AFAIK the F-84G and F4D-1. I don't know about WWII kits.
  16. Re-he-heally!Love the builds Carl, I have a soft spot for the F4B, even if it doesn't burn JP
  17. Top picture, the one on the left's a dummy - says INERT on the body, twice. Not sure about the one on the right, but it looks like something's written on the motor casing, presumably "INERT". I'm pretty sure the ones on the bottom pic are dummies.
  18. I wonder what those two girls are getting ready for...

    Sorry, couldn't quite keep up with who was asking what! AFAIK the USAF only use the Popeye on the B-52 (3 missiles and 1 pod), it was only the Aussies who used them on their pigs.

    Mr. Smith, I assume you're talking about the pod in the lower left corner of this pic: That's the guidance pod for the Popeye, called AN/ASW-55 in the U.S. It's different from the AN/AXQ-14 / AN/ZSW-1 used for the GBU-15 / AGM-130. The filter-like thing you're referring to (Part WC14 on the pic above I assume) is a cooling grill. I can't recall ever seeing pictures of it with the grill facing down, only to the side
  21. GBU-24 and -31 are usually Olive Drab FS34087. The bomb bodies will almost invariably be more faded than the smart-bits, especially with a Mk.84 warhead, much less so with a BLU-109 penetrator.Earlu AIM-54, -7 and -9L/M were white, the -54 and -7 had a light grey radome, the -9 had a dark anodized metal guidance section. Later variants have Light Ghost Grey FS36375 bodies, the -7 and -54 with white radomes, the 7 with natural titanium fins. Can't remember the sub-type (from -7F?), but the later -7s had silver-ish tips on the front fins, which was actually lead counterbalance weights. The -9s r
  22. I think it's payback for when you yanks use hyphens for British aircraft, where they aren't part of the package
  23. John, have a gawk at this
  24. There's also Modern Hobbies, who will be reopening soon after a lengthy pause
  25. you CAN NOT drop a bombshell like that and not give us some more info!Its torture Julien One might imagine that it's from a company that recently had their kit début with a model of another USN trainer. Would be my guess.
