    To the best of my knowledge just different engine and somewhat smaller rotors. I am sure there are other things, but thats the major stuff.

    This is the Testors 1/32 HH-43 Huskie. A very unique design. A brief history taken from Wikipedia: In 1947 Anton Flettner, a German aviation engineer, was brought to New York in the United States as part of Operation Paperclip.[1] He was the developer of Germany's Flettner Fl 282 "Kolibri"...

    Thank you thank you! :) I got the 1/48 version from Italeri. Gonna do the 1001st/1st heli version with Caracal decals. Let me tell you, as nice as the 72 is, the 48 is nicer! It will be a great build I am thinking.

    F-111E

    I dont mind flash so much as long as the fit is OK. But when there is flash and seams on everything AND the fit sucks major butt, then its just too much.

    F-111E

    I I would say before you sink a bunch of money into aftermarket to simply get the hobby boss kit and go with that. The only thing I would do is take the exhausts from the Academy kit and try and use those. The hobby boss kit only has 5 actuators whereas the real plane has 6 and that they got...

    F-111E

    Thank you. I used blue tack worms to delineate borders and air brushed it. According to the database on ScaleMates its solely a HB kit. New molds in 07.

    Thank you! It looks better in pics. But I did manage to make it not horrible.

    I have never had an issue with HB. Not that I have built a whole bunch of them.

    F-111E

    This my friends is probably the crappiest kit I have ever finished. It came nano seconds from aerodynamics testing multiple times. Every part had flash. Every part required sanding and repeated dry fitting. EVERY. PART. Not exaggerating. This is the 1/48 Zhengdefu/Hobby Craft re pop of the...

    1/72 Revell Handley Page Victor

    sanding g sticks do an OK job. I have never been able to figure out how to get them to look near perfect though.

    FA-18, B-1B, C-17, Lightning, SU-15... catching up. ;)

    Well, it seems the place is back up! Here are some of the projects I wrapped up while it was down. Revell 1/48 FA-18: Revell 1/144 C-17: Revell 1/48 B-1B:

    Those intakes are precisely why I will not mess with this kit. Unless of course someone makes a resin set like for the Vulcan.

    Re: 1/72 Hasegawa F-4E OLD TOOL OK, so it is all wrapped up. Figures done, weapons done. All that jazz. I really like how it turned out.

    1/72 Hasegawa F-4E OLD TOOL FINISHED!

    Re: 1/72 Hasegawa F-4E OLD TOOL So, I came to the conclusion, based on feedback I got, I did indeed over do the chipping and the dirt on the loading equipment. So I fixed that. So after fixing that, got all the decals on. Dirtied her up. Its hard to tell on the top side due to the camo, but...

    1/72 Hasegawa F-4E OLD TOOL FINISHED!

    Re: 1/72 Hasegawa F-4E OLD TOOL Thanks guys. :D Got some more work done after posting those pics. Got the loading equipment mostly completed. Need to start on the figures and the actual weapons on that side of things. I was going to spray lightened colors to fade the paint, but after...
