  2. Hi there I strongly suggest you all get a copy of Dick Lord Vlamgat book https://www.amazon.com/Vlamgat-Story-Mirage-South-African/dp/0620241160 "...Perhaps it is the early morning chill that awakens them. They are mostly young and enthusiastic - but combat is a maturing process that can change a youth into an adult overnight. ...At last they have suited up and completed the briefing. The weapons are loaded and the aircraft are servicable to fly. The pilots forget the anxieties and tension of the early morning hours. ...The peace of the morning is shattered

  7. Hi there Well I'm just restocking modern French aircraft kits and according to Scalemates galaxy hichicker guide Dassault Mirage 2000C and Dassault Rafale A/C are now under Mistercraft boxing in Poland (one thing is they got some interesting decals schemes) Regards Armando
  8. Wez, Mike, Grant 10000 thanks for your answer You confirmed many of my WWG (Wild Wide Guess or YGIGM your guess is good as mine) kind of a joke I had with another industrial maintenance engineer in the past, maybe my limitation are really the decals (in general fine but not really wonderful) anyway is a huge model if I put it beside other 1/72 scale fighter bomber models. A very elegant aircraft its going to be on display beside a Hasegawa Douglas KA-3C Whale (this one with folded wings, anonther long stalled kit because for some weird trick of the Carpet Monster canopy got lost fo
  9. Hi there Well so many time ago I trashed a kit of an Italeri EB-66 Destroyer in wonderfull 1/72 scale https://www.scalemates.com/kits/italeri-199-destroyer-douglas-eb-66-e-dl--123601 And also a very old conversion from Airwaves for Douglas EB-66E Destroyer....... Yes the one for a Bat-21 movie https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airwaves-sc7205-eb-66e-destroyer--224159 Assembling the kit was no mayor deal but I broke the main undercarriage as I tried to attached At this point the kit stalled until late last year that I unpaint
  10. Hi there The thing I found very interesting is that those Syrian AF MiGs have 2 types of serials: one solid and one sectioned (a simple paper mask) Lots of interesting things here you can find them by mark and by user country http://mig.mariwoj.pl/ Regards Armando PD It looks that Hechizosuix Productions LTD have a new decals project
  11. Hi there Well I been considering to start a tread about the title, so let's start that I'm only a simple modeller, no conection with combat aircraft other than plastic modeling, living in a underdevelopment country also no local hobbyshop El Salvador in Central America (yes right down the border in the middle of Banana Republics) I also think the explanation is necesary to help you and me in the context so the real meaning I don't have no one around to talk about this Ok I'm also a 1/72 wonderful scale nut, so I already have on the stash DML, Stream and ICM mainstream w
  12. Hi there Well French SAMP bombs can also found in old Revell Mirage IIIE/R in 1/72 scale Now you can also find big SAMP bombs on Special Hobby Super Mystere SB2 sme wonderful scale Regards Armando

  16. Hi there i just got my model because this review Regards Armando
  17. Hi Selwyn I always appreciate you candor when talking about the British aircraft ordenance, as a simple modeller guy my only practical kwonleage of any ordenance is the way plastic look, you just simplified the lecture they all look the same externally...... Anyway Regards Armando
  18. Hi there Well lucky you got those models, I remember to got mine in a Flea Market in bags complete but decaless, later i was able to get the decals. You going to need Hasegawa Weapons set I, II, III and IV as those are for from the 60s (Vietnam War) to 80s. Sadly the Air to Air missiles box only came with 4 AIM-7E Sparrow but complete sets of 4 AIM-9 Sidewinder Models B, D, E P and J. For the Iron Bomb set you only got 2 each MER and TER (you need to look at Fujimi A-4 Skyhawks as they lso include same amount oc MER and TER but no bombs) also missing the central fuselage pylon. Cle

  21. Hi there Well following the wonderful adventures of Phantom Modeling I just got a couple of Phantoms one Hasegawa F-4G new and another Hasegawa F-4E used (but almost complete) in other leage 1/48, so tomorrow I'll be using the office Photocopier to have my drawings in astonishing 1/72 scale ....... meaning I'm going to use the 1/48 ventral weapons pylon to have my accurate master https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/0/8/1/114081-82-instructions.pdf Regards Armando
  22. Yes Luigi you're right its on Limited Edition Hasegawa Phantom this kits included the USAF wing pylon https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10744010/70/3 And this (R)F-4EJ include underfuselage central pylon for both recon ECM pods https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10662389/70/3 Revell Germany recent F-4F Phantom II also not include clean wing fuel tank pylons nor central under fuselage pylon https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/7/8/4/103784-64-instructions.pdf But include two different type of wing ends that allow to do hard wing (early) and sla
  23. Yes Andre It look that something still doesn't makes sense as most recent 1/72 Hasegawa kits F/A-18E/F (include AIM 9X and AIM120 AMRAAM misiles), F-15E limited edition (included an extra modern weapons sprue) even F-35 include some missiles maybe because its market adversaries include more missiles and stencils Regards Armando PD I found one central Phantom pylon but I can scratch more all thanks your advice
  24. Thanks Iainpeden I think I still have one of those on the stash .......... So I'm going to look for the central pylon. The thing is that for Hasegawa Phantoms only load in the centra fuselaje is the fuel tank Thanks Armando
