This might help. There was a discussion on RC Universe regarding the Easy 8 tracks vs the M26 Pershing, here is the site.

Re: Metal Landing Gear for 1/18 BBI Hornet is Here!!

This was just re-posted by xddave about the white metal landing gear that "Scale Model Conversions" (SMC) offers for the BBI Hornet. One of the concerns brought up was that white metal is soft. The white metal gear I've bought in the past from SMC has held up incredibly. I have a few Hornets with s...

Re: Metal Landing Gear for 1/18 BBI Hornet is Here!!

Anyone who owns a pre-Sidewinder version of the BBI Hornet (Golden Dragons, Jolly Roger, Marauder and Blue Angels) will eventually suffer from sagging main landing gear if they leave their Hornet in the gear down position. Three of mine suffer from that condition and this is perfect for those of us...

Re: 1/18 A4E Skyhawk 2019

Can’t wait. This is a much needed aircraft that served with at least eight different countries in a number of variants. She first flew in 1954 and last flew with the Israeli Defense Force in 2015. She had a very impressive record in Vietnam. I’m in for at least two.

Re: fair price for M113

That depends on condition and whether it is boxed or not. Some collectors prefer them boxed. The other factors are whether or not they are complete, is it R/C or static, is it a 21st Century or 21st Century sold as a repaint under Motormax. The ebay prices are ridiculous selling from the low $100 t...

Re: Any Interst In A Tricked Out Blackhawk ?

I agree with Trex0770, Matt’s conversion is worth the money if you really want a tricked out Blackhawk. I too have the same conversion and had Matt offered the full build way back then I would have jumped on it

Re: Is this real ?

Im hoping they meant pesos. In pesos it’s about $2,450.00 without shipping. In this world you can ask any price for anything, you just have to find the buyer who suffers from “TMM” (Too Much Money)

My bad, I saw that back in July of 2012 you were talking about your plans to work on your Spot Cat and hadn’t actually started the hands on part yet, you were just in the planning stages. I really can’t wait to see the finished bird, it’s been exciting watching it progress.

At one time Fine Scale Modellers had stated that JSI was planning on releasing the F14 in kit form. It never happened due to JSI having the issues it had. A real shame, it would have been an awesome model.
