Re: 1/18 A4E Skyhawk 2019

Ok guys, most of you know I have been working on a 1/18 A4E Skyhawk. Hoped I would have been further along than what I am, but with work and other projects it has been shoved to the side for far too long. Another contributing factor would be the failed ME163 Komet I produced a couple years ago. I f...

Re: Collect or Use and Display?

A little of both. Learned one thing though is keep the original boxes unless you plan on permanent display. Though I still cant get my Stuka apart to put back in it's box. It's so old I'm afraid it'll break, any tips? Also I lucked out when I got a friend deeply into 1:18 planes as he didn't want t...

Re: Marines to cut all tank units, etc.

Makes sense to me cutting tanks and MPs but I don't understand reducing the infantry battalions though. except it doesn't make sense in that the Marines will still need tanks for fire support if they ever actually do amphibious assaults on Chinese controlled islands. Removing tanks and a few artill...

Hang in there Danny! Forget the History degree idea as a major. That's fine for a side minor. Jobs related to it aren't going to be there in a sick society that wants to erase history and embrace their own decadent culture.

Is this nose gear or main gear? And is the rest of the gear intact (strut, pivot, and locking arm)?
One of the main gear and if I recall correctly it should be intact. I will have to try and pull out the old girl when i go north to visit family later this week

Unfortunately the plane is in storage an hour away from me. I can tell you at least the spring is inside of the plane. I believe it has to do with the spring and not the spar breaking

Re: Where Have All The Aircraft Mods Gone?

Folkwulfe could you possibly go into detail on what you did to repair the landing gear on your F-104? I have one from many years ago that i damaged the gear on when I was a young boy that didnt know these would be so valuable later on. I would love to be able to repair my bird back to her former glory
