  1. Might anyone have in their spares box a single .50 cal barrel, air cooled like was used on bombers, in their spares box? I need 1 for an armor conversion and don't need to buy an entire set. Thanks, Tim
  2. Wayne, How long did you have to wait to get your order and did they ever reply to any e-mails you sent them? I've sent them 2 e-mails and heard nothing back. Plus they charge VAT even though it's a "non-EU" order. Tim
  3. Wayne, Thanks for the info. What decal solvent did you use? I always use Solv-a-set. Tim
  4. Also, didn't Squadron with their True Details line come out with a resin seat as well?
  5. Wayne, May I please ask why you said the decals were a pain to apply? Also, do they include a placement chart? What base color did you use for this Merc? I've ordered these same decals. Thanks, Tim
  6. Man, I just dropped 300 Euros with them. Way too much kool stuff on their web site.
  7. Not really, the Martin Baker in the F4 was a lot heavier in construction and layout. Here is a scan from Bert Kinsey's F-5E & F in detail & scale #5. As you can see, it looks a lot different than other ejection seats.
  8. Oh, I gotta get set of those. Looks great. You mentioned that they were a pain to apply, but probably no more so than these Renaissance decals on the Porsche or the Studio 27 "Crocodile" Audi (yep she got damaged in storage). Both were gloss white bases with decals covering the entire bodies.
  9. I used to work the F-5Es at Nellis back in 79-81 and they were Northrop designed seats. You had two versions, the standard and improved. The improved had a plastic cowl up and around the head rest and top of the seat. The same seat is also used in T-38s. I hope this helps. Tim
  10. Hey guys, I'm looking for 3-5 German dudes to fit in the back of a 1/35th Tamiya Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf. D in late WW2 uniforms in a relaxed pose. Any ideas? I did find on Military Miniatures Warehouse, First Legion figures 35037, 35038 & 35039, but they are in mi-War (Stalingrad) uniforms. They could work, but what I'm looking for. Thanks, Tim
  11. Well, that Tankograd book arrived today. Definitely get "Tankograd American Special #3022 - M60A2, M60A3 & AVLB" if you want to build the AVLB. It doesn't really help if you're going to build a A2 or A3 in my opinion. But then, who am I? ;-)
  12. Thanks Mark, I always know you have my back my friend.
  13. Guys, thanks for the info. I have the Tankograd book for the M60A2, M60A3 and the bridge lying track (don't remember what code it is) on the way & it should be here this week. Hopefully it'll have some more photos of this scheme. Thanks again for your input. Tim
