  1. Kill Info from Sword of David: The Israeli Air Force at War book.
  2. Excellent Job!, Built this jet twice over the years.. First time using the Fujimi thick & nasty decals on a 1/48 Hasegawa kit as the trash can was the best place for the Fujimi plastic. Second time in 1/32 using Tamiya kit with a mix of handmade masks for the stripes and a Astra decal sheet for everything else. Love the fact you've not only breathed new life into a old kit.but you made you own decals
  3. Awesome build....still not convinced the rake of the under carriage lags is correct if you build it OOB as Eduard intended. Guess I'll find out when i start mine
  4. Would make my modeling mojo disappear in a instant if we got a new tool Herk
  5. And there's goes my cuppa all over the table...lol
  6. Hmmm, was thinking about joining this GB to give my mojo a kick up the butt since I've not even sat at my bench for around 6 months now. Looking at a GWH 1/48 T-33 in the stash
  7. New video over @ Andy's Hobby Headquaters Y/T Channel Think i'm gonna buy afew of these for the stash.
  8. They have a limited shelf live. The chemical propertys in the propellants and explosives start to degrade over time,as do the electronics...most are marked with a expiry date,and have a limited amount of flight hours. Biggest threat over Syria has been UAV's better to use up a old stock almost time expired AIM-9M on a drone than a new and very costly AIM-9X.....save them for something else.
  9. I would say yes... I think the CH-53G got new composite rotor blades at some point same as the USAF MH-53J/M's which IIRC have a different tip profile to the earlier blades...that may limit your use of the RH-53D to a certain time frame of Bundeswehr use. But i'm no expert on the type.
  10. Microscale did it decades ago,Twobobs did it more recently but its long OOP
  11. Don't think the ones above wore any unit insignia, I know the Op Crossroads DB-17/QB-17's wore the same as the B-29's.. If I ever get around to doing those I'll pick up a couple Warbird Decals sheet that has Dave's Dream on it for the 58th Wing insignia...plus I want to build the AFWC B-29 option too
  12. Yeah it is surprising they are still fully armed in 1946!...the turrets were quickly removed but it would make for a easier build apart from paint and decals.
  13. Ok...I'm in, Airfix's B-17G Late Please excuse the bad phone pic just a quicky to show the unstarted kit(afew pieces removed from sprues but nothing glued). Colour scheme...well its gonna be post war for something alittle different. I had planned on building maybe 2 or 3 kits for this GB but since I'm already late to the party I'll now just concentrate on one. The original choices were a B-17G from the AWFC(All Weather Flying Center) based at Clinton County Air Base,Ohio between 1946-49 for Project Thunderstorm were they gathered data on Thunderstorms and chased Tornado's and flew other adverse Weather missions. The other options were 1950's Drones in either the yellow/orange with black stripes or the red/white scheme maybe with the added wing tip pods. Well I guess I'll make a start and make the final choice when it comes time to close up the fuselage as I'll need to fair over the removed gun turrets on the Drones. Cheers for now, Gary/Mungo1974
