On the other hand, there are a LOT of civil aircraft used by the military. Staggerwing, King Air, Learjet for a few.

Fairbanks is going through it's reset, according to the diagram and a helpful clerk they will be here tomorrow. I'd asked her how to get one early, she replied to get there early tomorrow since she'd had lotsa requests for it already.

OK, thanks. There might be a perspective thing going on some, but it sure seems compared to 21st century that it's too tall, maybe too short, and funny tires at least

Just read my response and thought I should add that the CVC was for the vehicle crew only, IE passangers (also known as grunts) whose main mission was not operating the vehicle would not be wearing them, they'd have thier normal combat helmet.

Well I can give you some idea for the Viet Nam era, it may well apply for post WWII also if not even then. The helmet was called a CVC for Crewed Vehicle Communications. It was only worn when actually in the tank or when working outside it for a short time. It was very uncomfortable. The standard "s...

I'd ordered the F-16 from them (Historic Aviation) back in march, looked like it was in stock. The e-mail I'd gotten from them said that it was back-ordered. About a month later I'd inquired about the status of this order, their response was that there are production problems and they will advise me...

I think I owe BCT a big apology!!! I'd (not directly) slammed them earlier. After seeing that Military Toys still offers the Atlantic Avenger, but not the actual ability to order it, it appears that BCT was only letting us know the real world.

Well, I guess my standards are a little bit looser then others. The F-16 still looks right and when mine shows up will be most welcome next the the F-18. Then again I started modeling with Aurora's infamous Mig-19 that was actually a distorted Ta-183.

P.S. Military Toy Shop I don't even want to discuss for their spit. Their shipping has been running about 40% of total cost!! My last attempt was just 2 days ago when I decided to order one of the Humvee's. $15.99 for the model, $45.00 shipping UPS ground!! I didn't complete the order.

As of 5 minutes ago, KB's spit is listed at 49.99, when I got mine ~2 months ago 2nd day Fedex was 10.99 to Alaska. Bad Cat shows 54.95 for theirs with shipping for comparable stuff during the same time period running 20-25 dollars for USPS priority.
