Those are nice. The CH-46 reminds of my days in HC-3 when I was in the Navy.

Yes, I know Harry... Dusting isn't my strong point. I try to dust my builds, but I usually don't make it to the shelves. Some of these pics are pretty old to, sO I probably dusted them once since then...

Yes terry, it's the tamiya kit. I custom mixed the yellow to match the pics of the real jet better and used TwoBobs decals and Edaurd PE for the IP. The kit doesn't have any gauge detail, which I found pretty disappointing considering the high level of detail everywhere else on it.

No...it's just one of the 600 or so in my stash. But it's high on my list on the ones that I really do want to build! LOL

GREAT lookin aircraft there, Colin. I used to build 48th scale(still do, occasionally) But now, I have moved up to 24th scale aircraft. They are kinda hard to find, but Squadron Shop seems to get the newest ones out. I FINALLY got the Airfix 24th scale Dehavilland Mosquito, and I'm waiting now on the P-47 Thunderbolt by Vintage Aircraft Models. i FINALLY got the Combat Models F-4 Phantom, and man, that thing is huge! I thought the Airfix AV-8B Harrier was big, but this Phantom is ALOT bigger!!!! :D :P ;)

Thanks Brizio and Jim.

George, I know my 32nd scale phantom is almost 24", I bet a 24th scale is upwards of 3'!!! My hobby room isn't big enough to build that thing, my 32nd scale Tomcat barely fits on my shelves.

Which variant is it? It would be awesome if it was a "G". Put some wild weasel decals on it and strap on some Harms, it would look killer!

Actually Colin, it comes with a short nose or a long nose, and i believe I can build a few variants of it. It comes with the fairings for the mini gun equipped F-4's s, an it does come with missles and a cast metal landing gear set up. It's vacu-formed so a little knowledge of building these types of kits would be helpful. I've never done one QUITE this big, but hey, If ya want it, yer gonna hafta BUILD that rascal! So, that's wat Im gonna do! :lol: :D ;)

Vac formed??? You sir, are a braver man than me! I've never done one, they just never did anything for me. Make sure you post some pics of that monster when you get it done.
