Re: JSI F-14D Tomcat conversion.

Some more "goodness" from Nathan Horchem (aka Pizzaguy), for my F-14D conversion. This project has been pushed to the back burner since I'm still waiting for cockpit parts, seats and, the dual chin pod before starting the lengthy re-build.

Re: My 1/18 F14 pilots

Nice. According to his instructions the parts should be painted first then glued in place in the cockpit, otherwise they won't fit. That's why I sold the set I had. I used some blu-tack to hold the lower part and torso together and tried to get them in their seats but, they would not go. Apparently ...

Re: 1/18 resin pilot figures.

There is a company in Germany called 48specialmodels.com.
They sell aircrew for the F-14, F-104, F-18 and, the AV-8B.
I purchased the Tomcat aircrew years ago and they are very well done. I'm not very good at painting figures so, I sold them.
Hope this helps.

Re: bbi F18 Kittyhawk, and F16 8th fighter wing

Here's my thought on this and this is a VERY touchy subject on these aircraft. I've had many a battle with people over this subject. They are worth whatever anyone wants to pay for them. How bad do you want a Kitty Hawk F-18 ?? How bad do you want a Wolfpack F-16 ?? Another question is how much did ...

Re: Old Hornet Project Revisited

From what I see everything looks good. Like I said, at least your working on your projects unlike others who just "talk" about doing things.
Keep up the great work, the more you do the better you'll get.

Re: WTB:F-16 Enduring Freedom (NIB)

These jets are getting harder to find and very expensive when in new condition. Last week a F14 JR got sold for > $1000 after 16 bids. I don't believe it sold, the reserve was not met. He said if he didn't get what he wanted for it he would try again around Christmas time. Good luck with that. He a...

Re: JSI F-14D Tomcat conversion.

Another key piece for my F-14D conversion, since this one will be posed on her gear. Thanks to Nathan Horchem (Pizzaguy) for these beautiful metal mains. They are a work of art, thanks again my friend. Steve "TOMCATS FPREVER, BABY...!" https://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag160/FLIGHTLINEPHOTO/1_18t...

Re: 1/18 F16 AAQ-13/14 Targeting_Navigation Pods PLUS!!

Another "upgrade" for my F-16, a AN/AAQ-33 Sniper XR pod, pylon and, hardback. Along with Nathan's AIM-120B's and LAU-129 rails my jet will look a lot better. Very well done Nathan, thanks again.

Re: 1/18 F16 AAQ-13/14 Targeting_Navigation Pods PLUS!!

Great work on the parts Nathan, thanks again. These will look really good on my F-16. I'll need to fabricate the "stubby" pylon for stations 2 and 8 so I can move my resin AIM-9's under the wings.
