  1. I only knew him for a short time having been introduced to him by Neil aka Mr Paragon on these forums. I believe they had been friends for many years. Seemed a very nice chap, taken far too soon sadly
  2. Always makes me kinda sad to see Johnny Fartpants again. For those not aware the pilot of this perticular Gulf war Jag was flown by Flt Lt Stephen Shutt Steve was briefly a member of this Britmodeller community under the forum name jagmate until he lost his life in a light aircraft crash in 2008 along with his passenger. May they both Rest in Peace. On a more cheery note Excellent work on the kit Dave.
  3. Given the current/recent co-operation between Academy and Italeri and the fact Italeri now have the moulds for the oldish 90's vintage AMT P-40 Family...I'm guessing the 'new' P-40N will be the AMT kit in a shiney new box......not bad kits if alittle soft on detail in places.
  4. Asked a buddy of mine who was a F-4E WSO with the 480th TFS. At the time (1982/83) the 480th Warhawks were the only Sqn at Spangdahlem tasked with Victor Alert. The 81st were fully equipped with F-4G's for Wild Weasel SEAD missions, and the 23rd specialised in things like the GBU-15. Later all 3 Sqn's flew a mix of F-4E/G in Hunter/Killer teams till the Echo's were replaced with F-16's in 1987. Anyway the Victor Alert load out was. B61 on centerline ALQ-131 pod ALE-40 Chaff/Flares Full 20mm gun Two wing tanks No A2A missiles carried.
  5. Most likely in the minority but i think the weathering looks bloody awful. Never ever seen a period image of a Mustang looking that rough and I have 1000's saved. Each to their own as long as the builder is happy with it,thats all that matters..
  6. The pod parts shown on the F-4G sprue are for the chin and tail fin on the Wild Weasel. The decals depict a small mouth Blk30 jet the first Blk50 arrived in late 1991. From 1987-1992 the F-4G/F-16C would work in hunter killer teams typically the Viper carrying AGM-45 Shrike,AGM-65 Mavericks, dumb bombs or CBU-87/89
  7. Very nice build, I do wish kit manufacturers would stop telling builders of their F-15 kits to paint the area under the speed brake white. Its just wrong they have never been like that and alway grey rather than white. Rant over... again very nice work Lord Riot
  8. Nice job, KC-10's used to look good in the Shamu scheme
  9. According to Chris Flack,Spencer's son on one of the many Facebook Group i'm in... Airfix have expressed a interest to the complete trio of Spencer's colourful fleet presumably if this one sells ok....So we could see G-FURY and G-HUNT in 1/48 using the already available Sea Fury and Hunter kits in the not too distant future.
  10. Interesting can we have G-FURY & G-HUNT too please Airfix...yes i know there's aftermarket decals outthere...
  11. Dunno if anythings been said as to why...gonna come down to ££ at the end of the day always does...sadly
  12. So this got posted by Nick Grey on Facebook this morning. 2020 keeps on giving... Hopefully they'll find a new venue.
